There are not many people who see our van and think, “whatever.”
We usually spark some kind of reaction. Good, bad, weird, you name it. We’ve had it all.
We’ve seen just about every emoji personified.
It’s pretty strange to see a large pink van decked out with not so fun facts about Planned Parenthood. Especially when all you know is how ‘great’ Planned Parenthood is. Planned Parenthood spends MILLIONS on branding instead of serving women. Of course that is what you know! Question it!
Sometimes it takes people a while to realize what’s going on. Yes, the van is pink, but Planned Parenthood doesn’t own the color pink.
We get stares, lots of stares:
As we pull into a gas stations heads turn. Once a lady in the car next to us stared the whole time we were getting gas and snacks. Jaw partly dropped and wide eyes.
Sometimes it’s easy to forget we are driving a large pink awesome van, but the constant stares are always a good reminder.
Before leaving the University of Pittsburgh a student walked by and began scratching his head. He glanced at us awkwardly a few times before scratching his head with his middle finger. Smooth… He didn’t have the courage to boldly wave the bird. Maybe because he was starting to question his beliefs.
We get road rage:
On the Pennsylvania Turnpike a driver waved a certain special finger at us. His car swerved into our lane. He doesn’t value the life of the pre-born or our safety!
We get apathy:
Some people just walk by. They think, “this isn’t my business” and just move on. The truth is abortion IS the largest human rights issue in the WORLD! Killing 3,000 children a day in the US alone is a BIG deal. Yes, it’s your business too.
We even get hit on:
“I like your slogan” three men shouted flirtatiously at a West Virginia McDonald’s drive-through as three beautiful pro-life women stepped out of the van. First off, McDonalds isn’t the best place to pick up men. Secondly, we are taken. #SorryBoys Thanks for the support though… I guess.
We get money:
“Do you all take donations?? Here is $20!” One woman yelled as she approached the van in a busy intersection in Cleveland, OH.
But most importantly…
We get conversions: “Oh, I didn’t know that!”
When you stand on the fence or are bashfully pro-life and you see determined young people proudly driving the Pink Fleet across the county it can be pretty convincing! Planned Parenthood betrays women. #prolifegen
