Did anyone else see the Pro-Lifers on Connecticut Avenue, Maryland side of Chevy Chase Circle, yesterday during rush hour?
I haven’t been able to find out much information on this protest, primarily why they chose this location. I’m surprised WaPo doesn’t have an article on this but then again it’s a touchy subject and many tend to ignore the issue alltogether. Note: I’m not stating my opinion on this topic either. I will keep my asshole opinion to myself.
This location is on a part of Connecticut Avenue that squeezes three lanes in where it should just be two. One wrong move and somebody gets hit (experienced that a few years ago). Then with the protesters out there traffic became chaotic, “Honk for life”. I was surprised I didn’t hear anyone honking I felt like just ducking and get past it all as fast as I could. A friend, who also drove through this, said it was crazy loud and a lot of honking when she passed.
The pictures they had of dead aborted babies were HUGE and became overwhelming since there were so many between the Circle and Bradley Blvd. By the time I got past the chaos it definitely had an affect on me and I had to turn the air up. I’m sure it didn’t help that there was a tractor trailer next to me and I thought for sure he would rip me to shreds since he was so close.
See how close the truck is.
