From 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. yesterday a grassroots pro-choice demonstration, organized online and by word of mouth, took place on the Johnson County Courthouse lawn in downtown Warrensburg. Over 100 individuals participated.
Most passing traffic signaled their support by honking their car horns. A few anti-choice individuals shouted what appeared to be unintelligible talking points which were usually meet with sharp retorts.
This was a much younger crowd and mostly female. They are awake and motivated. It would be a big mistake to ignore or discount their activism.
They were fearless. And fierce.

Cliché. An anti-choice counter-protester, across the street:
