While the topic has been a contentious one for quite some time, people took to the streets on Friday to rally against the drawing back of constitutional rights. However, those pro-choice protesters were met with equal hostility from those on the opposite end of the political spectrum.

Take for instance, a rally in Cedar Rapids, Iowa was witness to a truck plowing through protesters after a verbal confrontation between the driver and the rallygoers. Luckily no one was gravely injured, but it’s an indication of what these demonstrations could bring given the political climate.

Mayor Tiffany O’Donnell issued the following statement in response to the incident:

“Cedar Rapids is a city with a diverse population and many viewpoints. Today’s Supreme Court decision is likely to elicit strong opinions. What we must do as a city is come together, especially in times like these. The Cedar Rapids Police Department is conducting a thorough investigation into tonight’s incident. We all have a right to our opinions, but we must act in a peaceful and respectful manner.”
