HA! At the Planned Parenthood clinic in Columbia, MO, where pro-lifers have been participating in 40 Days for Life, there is a very small group of pro-choicers who stand outside the clinic on Thursday afternoons. This group is made up mostly of employees of this Planned Parenthood (the abortionist herself even came out and joined them once) and a known lobbyist for PP in MO. Sometimes they have trouble avoiding the many pro-life signs we have planted along the sidewalk:
This pic was too priceless to pass up. A friend told me that two other women eventually joined her and they stood in front of our sign. See a similar pic of these women next to one of our signs here.

A group from the Newman Center at the University of Missouri came to pray:
