Dan and I went out earlier this evening to cruise down Woodward for the Dream Cruise. There were a lot of cool cars, lots of people, and nice weather after the storm had passed. You can imagine my disgust and shock when as we're driving down the road, I look out my window and see two men standing at the corner protesting abortion with huge signs with photos of aborted babies. I'm for freedom of speech and everything, but seriously... Protesting abortion at a family event? Isn't that a little extreme? There are tons of little kids trying to enjoy all of the cars, and they have to see that? I'm not a child, and I was traumatized. I don't want to see that. Go protest in front of an abortion clinic, not in front of the Pearle Vision on Woodward Ave. I did a Google maps search of the Pearle Vision there, and there's actually a photo of a protester there from a previous year.
I'm just really disappointed to have seen this. It was unexpected and very unnecessary. I'll know to avoid that area next year.
