Supporters of Planned Parenthood on Good Friday

St. Paul, MN, April 22, 2011. Good Friday triggered the annual support-protest rallies at the St. Paul office of Planned Parenthood of Minnesota/South Dakota. About 1,000 loud supporters of Planned Parenthood took to the streets in front of the office. A slightly smaller crowd of protesters sang and chanted on the same street across a “no man’s land” of police barricades. As has been the case for many years, both sides were committed to their positions. The supporters were laughing and cheerful, the protestors more solemn and intense. Here’s a sampling of the two voices.
The supporters were specific about the range of Planned Parenthood services to women; the protestors concentrated on abortion which represents about 5% of Planned Parenthood’s services.
