It’s President Obama’s first full day in office, day 2 of the first 100 days, and he already has protesters giving him grief.



About 50 people from a pro-life organization held crosses, each with a year written since Roe v. Wade.


Obama isn’t here, but a man with a bullhorn shouted at him that change should mean an end to abortion.


“We are here for the very first day,” he said. “Mr. President! End the violence! Mr. President! Stand for what is just!”


The protest leader also got some facts wrong, saying that when Obama was born, he could not ride the same busses as white people, or “stay in the same hotels.”


He said today and tomorrow during the March for Life, the group would “peacefully and prayerfully, whatever it takes,” not stop.


“We will not be silent, we will not rest,” he said.
