Yearly Update

Last year, I made a post regarding the anti abortionists picketing in front of the Planned Parenthood. 

Well, they've slowly re surfaced over the past week and a half. I saw them almost two weeks ago, on a Thursday. There were only 3 people picketing the corner at this time. Yesterday, there were about a 14. Today, more or less the same. My camera caught 12. Who knows how many were getting coffee or more signs. 

I think that it's one of those flukes where there is very heavy car and foot traffic, and PP just happens to be at that corner. My cousin stated after I showed her the video, that people are out now, protesting, because it's an election year, and a certain Mormon presidential candidate is anti abortion. I see the point, but I choose to think otherwise. 

I mean, seriously, the proof is in my posting from last year. It was not an election year, and it was around this time I posted the query about why there were so many people out there. Like I said, there will be dozens in the weeks to come, sitting in lawn chairs and having a couple cold drinks, holding signs that tell the local citizens that they're going to hell for approving this. 

My writing and video, is in no way shape or form giving the okay that I'm for (or against) abortions. I'm just pointing out the facts as I see them, and that I find it oddly interesting that this many "good people" are choosing to deny a person their civil right to choose a freedom (of sorts)? It's not Joe or Jane that can tell Tammy she can or can not have a baby. Hell, the dude that got Tammy pregnant might not be able to tell her what to do! It's her choice. Don't ruin it "for the voters" or for the public because you want your freedom of speech to detour traffic out of a company, all for what it has to offer.
