At this years Great Falls Independence Day parade the Cascade County Democratic Central Committee decided it would be a good idea to use the opportunity to push their pro-abortion political agenda.
Following behind their float, which was decorated with local Democrat campaign signs, came a dozen or so slogan chanting marchers with signs declaring “Abortion is Healthcare”, “Bans off My Body” etc.

Regardless of whether you’re pro-choice, pro-life, or somewhere in-between, you should be able to discern when and where it’s appropriate and respectful to play partisan politics with an extremely controversial hot button issue like abortion.
But apparently common sense and discernment are in very short supply with local Democrats. That lack of respect and decency is one of the reasons Cascade County has gone from solid blue to deep red in recent election cycles.
There have been and will continue to be abundant opportunities to march and chant for whatever issue happens to be important to whatever political organization one may identify with, but the 4th of July parade in Great Falls is a local tradition meant to bring us all together for a fun time, not to further divide us for selfish partisan political gain.
Too bad that the local Democrat party has been hijacked by extremists who chose to turn our non-partisan, non-political celebration into a pro-abortion spectacle for parade goers, including a great many children.
Shame on them. Remember come November.
