The Resistance: Every Protest Counts

So the freakazoids and misogynists could only come up with 12 people to protest at Lexington's Planned Parenthood.

Supporters of women, children and healthcare got out there anyway.  Six of them, but that was enough to keep the motherfuckers from falsely claiming they had no opposition.

A protest is a protest, no matter how small.

A small crowd gathered in front of Planned Parenthood on Southland Drive in Lexington on Saturday morning for opposing rallies.

About 20 people, including some children, lined the sidewalk for a Defund Planned Parenthood rally, while about half a dozen counter-protesters came out to show their support for the organization.

“I feel like it’s important to speak up for those that are victims (sic) of abortion,” said Judith Lund, who held a tiny model of a 12-week-old fetus. “That kind of helps me to keep in mind those who have been killed (sic).”
The only victims of abortion are women who need them and can't get them, or who are forced to get lethal back-alley abortions because people like you, Judith Lund, support forced-birth laws.

The only people who have been killed because of abortion are the women who die from wire hangar abortions and from forced birth, which is hundreds of times more dangerous than abortion.

Also, I seriously doubt the "model" you held accurately represents a 12-week old fetus, because a 12-week-old fetus does not look remotely human.

Self hatred is so sad.   
Other protesters carried signs that said “Stop Abortion Now” and “Planned Parenthood Lies to You.”
The projection is positively trumpian.
Joanne Brown was part of the opposing group, which stood in a median a few yards away.
She said she was inspired to become a nurse practitioner focusing on women’s health by a nurse practitioner who “provided kind, compassionate care and was a wonderful role model” to her at a Planned Parenthood facility when she was 19. She said the organization was a source of “contraceptives, education and preventive care.”

“That’s what Planned Parenthood does,” she said. “I came out today to defend Planned Parenthood and show my support.”

The local Planned Parenthood office, which was not open during the rallies on Saturday, does not provide abortions.
