So, they went all that way to participate in a display of vulgarity? Just what were they protesting? Do they realize the founder is for Sharia law? I am disappointed in them. And I'm a Mormon.

I understand standing up for your convictions. I have spent most of my life outside the "Mormon Corridor" (what we used to call "the mission field") and having to defend my beliefs. What saddens me is that too many women in the church today believe in the philosophies of men (sometimes mixed with a little scripture). When you look at what the "Women's March" was affirming, I can find little in common with them. I know that abortion is the killing of an unborn child, not the destruction of a "mass of cells" or "tissue". I can't, in good conscience support that. What's interesting is that this article doesn't REALLY give us the reasons LDS women attended the march. What was it they were affirming? What did they have in common with those marching? What did they think of the speeches? What were they celebrating? All the article addressed was how it made them feel good.

Good. Standing up for what's right will always be encouraged, and these women took a stand outside their religion for a cause which will most decidedly show up In history books. I love seeing and meeting LDS members who can think for themselves!

Editor, I'd love to see coverage of today's "March for Life" in D.C. and also hear from the many LDS women marching in it who value and support the unborn, as the Gospel of Jesus Christ teaches us to do.

Sorry but as a daughter of the kingdom i refuse to be reducPlease ted to a body part. Unless its a brain. Do these women not read the Scriptures? Do they not listen to the prophets? There are so many LDS feminist examples to follow. What rights are they losing? What Gospel principle is enhanced by abortion? By the convicted felon that stood on the podium along side of women claiming they hold the moral high ground by declaring themselves "nasty"? I hope these women do not hold postions with either the young womans groups or primary.

I will never understand how any woman, who truly believes the tenets of the gospel, could participate in something so opposed to what we believe. This is not political activism, this is 'falling away' from the gospel and it's truths. This is putting a stamp of approval on murdering the most innocent among us, this is saying profanity and vulgarity is OK f attached to a political movement. This is Satan at work.

This just proves that these women did not educate themselves on the purpose of these marches. The majority of the platform was dedicated to extreme abortion rights. And pro-life groups were told they could not March with the women.

EllenJanuary 26, 2017

The headline suggests the article will sharel why these women joined the protest. I read through twice, I have no idea why they were marching. The women marching seemed to be marching to show their displeasure in the new president, their distain for certain groups, and support of a variety of issues (abortion, ACA, LGBTQ issues, climate change, and so forth.) Unfortunately, the article never addressed why these women joined in. I think the article ought to have included these details. It is very nice to know they had a good feeling about the experience and that they are engaged in politics, but surely there had to have been some sort of motivation here.

I cannot understand why good LDS women participated in womens march. They support abortion and displayed pornos. It make me sick.

Lee DanielJanuary 26, 2017

You need to look into the leaders of things like this. One of the leaders was a Shari law backer Muslim female. People like this want will not abide by the Constitution because their non-religion does not accept freedom for women or anyone who will not accept Islam.

MarkJanuary 26, 2017

I noticed the happy sign that says, "girl power". How about showing the other, more explicit signs?

Gregg AndersonJanuary 26, 2017

This article did in no way answer the question posed in the title: Why? Why these LDS women took part in Women't March Events. I only read an account of how they got there and a little bit of what they experienced. But, Why? My question is why would they be so deluded as to participate with all of those "useful idiots", and proudly proclaim themselves as Mormons? Whoa, no way does that square with me, and yes I am an LDS member. Knowing that the event was sponsored, organized and paid for by George Soros, and his minions; why would any church member associate themselves with such a gathering. George Soros was described today in another headline in the "Millennium Report" as, "The Most Evil Man in The World' and that article provided 5 pages of evidence to support their statement. I suggest these women read it. I would apply the old maxim of "Avoid even the appearance of evil." The question of, Why these women took part in this March? is a good one, as there appears to me to be no good reason to ever participate in such a scurrilous event.

My husband told me last night what those silly knitted hats represented that the women wore. I can think of better things to knit.

KatJanuary 26, 2017

Hooray for these women! Good job!

Some WomanJanuary 26, 2017

"The events illustrated that it’s OK to wed deep Mormon faith with political engagement, Hansen said." Annoying statement in so many ways.
