Warning: Poor Slogans Ahead

Here is the latest from the Plan B boycott of Ralph's Thriftway in Olympia. All I have to say is: friends don't let friends create slogans for signs like the ones below. A Grocer is not a Doctor?

What does that mean?!

I support the action, of course. I just don't know why there has been no evolution in the messaging of our movement - none. Information for those near Olympia is below:

The current schedule for picketing outside of Ralph's Thriftway (whose pharmacy refuses to carry emergency contraception) is: Wednesday, June 28th, 5-7 p.m., Thursday, June 29th, 5-7 p.m., Friday, June 30th, 5-7 p.m. and Sunday, July 2, 5-7 p.m.
I'm curious as to what slogans people have thought of putting on signs. We will be getting more buttons made this week, so please email me with your ideas. Some that I've heard so far have been:

Keep Contraception Legal
Stick to Lettuce
A Grocer is not a Doctor
No mandatory motherhood
Don't Turn Back the Clock
Honk For Choice
I've used Plan B
Jesus Loves Plan B
Keep your groceries off my ovaries
Boycott Ralph's
