'Yeast infection' breaks up Planned Parenthood protest

Too many have passed this along not to share. It's about a Portland woman who broke up a Planned Parenthood protest by counter-protesting about services she's been provided there, including birth control pills and treatment for urinary tract infections and yeast infections. Her yells about her yeast infection sent the anti-abortion crowd running, according to an account on BuzzFeed.

"The protesters kept moving their children away from my yeasty cries, so I kept moving closer," she joked.

“Initially they had spread down the sidewalks on both sides of the street, but after some yelling and high kicks on my part, they huddled together,” she said.

“They glared at my princess wave and cheerleader enthusiasm, and they began a prayer circle. This is when I really shined. I have never made my voice louder.”

After a short while, Mary’s chant ended up driving the protesters away. She said they grew tired of her shouts and eventually left, shaking their heads

Has Mary Numair come up with a strategy worth replicating? Say at the Arkansas legislature?
