Today’s Other Protest: Abortion Protesters Downtown

Today there was a whole other protest. It wasn’t about war, though the opposing sides are just as bitter. There were accusations of killing, death, even murder. And people did need escorts to keep fights at bay.

But this protest isn’t new, or even unique to DC. This is an abortion protest, and it happens across America at Planned Parenthood centers.

On one side you have guys like this one, ready to pounce on any woman entering, pregnant or not. On other you have the escorts, in bright shirts, ready to body-block for those looking for family planning advice.

And sadly, unlike the protest on the Mall, this protestation happens on a national scale every Saturday. Its enough to make we want to quote.

“Can’t we all just get along?”

Married, mortgaged, and soon to be a father, Wayan Vota is in the fast lane to mid-life respectability – until the day his brood finds his intimate journal of global traveling and curses him with the ever-eternal reply “I’m gonna be just like you, Dad!”
