In Memory of Van Lewis
I met Van at some of the protests outside AAP and/or ACOG meetings and his tale of being arrested protesting outside a hospital had a lot to do with my being cautious starting my protest outside the U of Chicago Hospital. (7 years now - began June 15th, 2004).
Of course, not wanting to get arrested, I first went to the U of Chicago Police to tell them about my intentions. I was told I was welcome to exercise my 1st Amendment right to protest. I wouldn’t mind going to jail for this cause if I could get fed, housed, and laid at taxpayer expense. However, I’m not good looking enough to go to jail. So, all I’d get is fed and housed.
