Two Contrasting Voices About Planned Parenthood By Bill Sorem | April 22, 2011 LikeTweet EmailPrint More More on Health Care Subscribe to Health Care 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.
