Protesters flock to Livonia Planned Parenthood

"And if we supported women to be able to have their children, they could do so".

The Planned Parenthood facility, which some demonstrators said is typically open on Saturdays, was closed.

Some of the demonstrations were met with counter-protests by Planned Parenthood supporters.

Vice President Mike Pence has always been an ally to anti-abortion groups and last month became the most senior government official to ever speak at the March for Life, an annual anti-abortion rally which drew tens of thousands to Washington, D.C. "Rights come from God... we have a nation that calls evil good and good evil and I can tell you judgement will fall on this country and when it does it will be very harsh", Rod Romeyn told 24 Hour News 8.
