Dennis Rae gallery owner says pro-lifers’ ejection was misunderstanding

Sac State students at Walk for Life captured scene on video

Woman at Dennis Rae gallery: “You are pro-death”

The following comes from a Jan. 28 story by NBC Bay Area.

Some abortion opponents who were in San Francisco for the Walk for Life over the weekend say they were outraged after they claim they were told to leave an art gallery in the city because of their views on the issue.

The group of students from California State University, Sacramento said around 9:15 p.m. Saturday they entered the Dennis Rae Fine Art gallery located on Beach Street. They said a woman working at the gallery approached them and asked if they were part of the anti-abortion walk. After responding with a yes, the students claim the woman told them to leave.

“Just an FYI, we’re getting kicked out because we’re pro-life,” someone can be heard saying in a video that captured part of the encounter.

“Good, yes, yes,” the woman at the gallery says in response. “I am pro-life. I am pro-choice. You are pro-death.”

The gallery owner, David Schach, said what happened was a misunderstanding, and the students weren’t asked to leave because of their political views.

“We respect your rights, we respect your views, and I apologize,” Schach said. “We were just trying to close the doors. It was late in the evening around 9:15-9:30. I’m sorry this happened to you. We were not trying to force you to leave or be mean to you.”
