2nd Day Of Abortion Protest Canceled In Jackson
JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) — The first of two anti-abortion demonstrations planned in Jackson has been cut short.
Members of the Milwaukee-based Missionaries To the Pre-Born lined Broadway on Monday and had planned to return on Tuesday. However, spokesman Jim Soderna told the Associated Press that they’ve canceled Tuesday’s action because of a scheduling issue.
The group drove trailers showing images of aborted fetuses and waved signs to passing drivers on Monday.
Members of a new group, Jackson Hole United, set up about a block away warning drivers to turn if they wanted to avoid the protest or the images.
Police monitored the demonstrations but no problems were reported.
Another anti-abortion group, Operation Save America, plans to stage demonstrations in Jackson next week.
The protests follow a recent Wyoming Supreme Court ruling in favor of protesters.
