An estimated 400 to 500 anti-abortion sympathizers sang and chanted in front of a Buffalo, N.Y., jail to support two ministers there who are in the ninth day of a water-only fast. The Rev. Ted Cadwallader, 40, and the Rev. James Evans, 38, waved from a sixth-floor window at the Erie County Holding Center to the gathering. The protesters stood behind a large banner that read, "We Love You Ted and Jim." The two ministers have been in jail since refusing to post $100 bail each after their arrest Feb. 17 on charges of trespassing and resisting arrest. They and four other anti-abortion protesters chained themselves to the entrance of a clinic in suburban Kenmore where abortions are performed. Kenmore Village Justice J. Mark Gruber said the two must post bail because they have been arrested before in anti-abortion protests.
