Sunflower Brew TV Episode 20 - Breaking the Chain

On October 6, a bunch of pro-life protesters formed a "prayer chain" that covered a seven-mile-long stretch of 95th Street in Overland Park.

So, a group of pro-choice demonstrators formed the 3rd Pro Choice Food Drive for the Living (and Prayer/Positive Thought Chain) - a counter-protest (thus "breaking the chain") and food drive (the argument: the pro-life movement only cares about a child while still in the womb; afterwards, they don't want to provide assistance to help raise the child).

This is a brief overview of the counter-protest.

Some facts from the counter-protest Facebook page:

  • More then 800 children in Kansas are currently in the foster care system, waiting to be adopted.
  • The Base State Aid Per Pupil in Kansas Schools has been cut by over $500 (again- PER PUPIL) because of our Governor.
  • The average age of a homeless person in Kansas City is 7 years old.
  • Nearly 5,000 disabled Kansans are currently on a waiting list to receive necessary services.
  • Kansas has changed it's requirements for food assistance, and an estimated 20,000 Kansans will soon find themselves ineligible for assistance. At the same time, nearly 35% of children in the Shawnee Mission School district alone qualify for free or reduced lunches.


  1. The "Pro-Lifers" care a lot about a fetus but don't give a goddamn about live children.

    1. Yes, that was the whole point of the counter-protest/food drive.
