Right for Life demonstration and counter protestors in front of the US Supreme Court
While I moved to Washington thirty years ago "to get involved in national policy and do good things" and for a time I worked for a national consumer advocacy group concerned with health policy, for a long time I've been more locally focused than nationally focused, and co-exist without national politics having too much effect on me personally.
I happened upon this yesterday, walking from the Library of Congress to Union Station. Yesterday was the annual Right to Life march. Again, it doesn't affect me much normally, except that I was riding the subway rather than biking, and the train cars were more full, with people who blocked the doorwells.
Today is the Women's March ("Why you should join the Women's March," Guardian).
