"St. Paul Planned Parenthood clinic sees record protests - on both sides"

As reported by the St. Paul Pioneer Press, more than 2,000 people protested outside St. Paul's Planned Parenthood clinic Friday, "making it the largest group in more than 25 years of Good Friday protests."

Brian Gibson, Pro-Life Action Ministries executive director, said the large attendance came from "the pro-abortion atmosphere coming out of the White House and Congress, and people wanting to show there are still pro-life people out there."

A counter-protest group also set a new assembly record, in a food drive outside the Planned Parenthood clinic in Highland Park.

Sarah Stoesz, president and CEO of Planned Parenthood of Minnesota, North Dakota and South Dakota, said the "pledge-a-protester" event raised more than $14,000 for the Hallie Q. Brown Food Shelf.
