Kids converge on City Hall to pray about abortion

On my way to City Hall today, I had to pass through a crowd of kids — a youth group? Some local Jesus Camp? — praying in front of the main entrance on 12th Street. I had no idea what the prayer/protest was about … until I heard the word “abortion.”

Which is even more confusing, frankly. Few institutions in Kansas City could have less of an impact on Roe vs. Wade than City Hall. The federal courthouse is just down the street, for Christ’s sake.
