Live near Cedar Rapids?

On Thursday, May 20, Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards will visit Cedar Rapids, Iowa, to mark the thirtieth anniversary of the region's Planned Parenthood affiliate. The Pro-Life Action League is planning a peaceful protest during her visit, in memory of the 185,000 unborn babies killed by abortion over the past thirty years in Iowa. Their message is simple: "Abortion is nothing to celebrate." The schedule is as follows:
4pm- Drop off baby supplies at the parking lot of St. Pius X church
4:30pm- Press conference
5pm- Protest of the Planned Parenthood gala at Cedar Rapids Marriot

All are welcome to attend. If you go, I encourage you to carry explicitly secular signs; with luck, some news crew will catch a picture of you and replace their old stock photo of a man holding a portrait of the Virgin Mary.
Oh, and don't forget to wear makeup...
This is the same Cecile Richards who once called the pro-lifers who were opposing the opening of the huge Aurora, Illinois abortuary “some of the ugliest anti-choice protesters we've ever seen.”

Moms and dads with kids in strollers, grandmothers with their Rosary beads, high-school teens rallying on behalf of their unborn brothers and sisters—that’s what Cecile Richards calls “ugly.”

"Ugly"? Yeah, well, your face.
