A good crowd of 40 or so protested outside. The importance of this should not be underestimated. First, how fortunate we are to live in America, where the right of every person speak his or her mind is protected.

Second, the presence of protesters is another affirmation that our strategy is working. If the abortion photos had no effect, the pro-abortion folks would just ignore us as irrelevant. In fact, showing abortion pictures is the one thing that pro-aborts fear most, because the pictures make it impossible for people to ignore or trivialize abortion. The images raise awareness and force the other side to defend an obviously horrifying act of violence against a defenseless human being.
BTW, our new video was very well received:
