Video: Pro-Life, Pro-Abortion Rallies Compete In North Dakota

I don’t have any news about the turnouts for the pro-life and pro-abortion rallies from other places in the state, but here in Minot it sure seemed to me like the pro-lifers had a much bigger crowd.

The challenge is that the two protests weren’t gathered the same way. The pro-abortion folks were all grouped together on the steps of the Ward County Courthouse:

Meanwhile, the pro-lifers were all stretched out along about a three-block strip of south Broadway near the Scandinavian Heritage Center. Here’s the best picture I could take (shooting from across Broadway was impossible due to the traffic):

I also took video of a drive-by of the pro-life protest:

My my estimates (and I’m horrible at estimating these things) I’d say the pro-abortion folks got about 50, and the pro-life people got in excess of 100.

If anyone has photos or videos from other rallies around the state, send them to rob@sayanythingblog.com and I’ll post them.

Meanwhile, Governor Jack Dalrymple has the abortion bills on his desk for signature.

Update: Here’s the pro-abortion crowd in Fargo, complete with “Viva la Vulva” sign. Classy.

Here’s the pro-abortion protest in Grand Forks:
