People came together in Washington and in Colorado, where the attack took place, as well as at other events around the country.

"We are calling for an end to the inflammatory rhetoric that has vilified and fueled attacks not only against Planned Parenthood and abortion providers, but also against Black, immigrant, refugee, and LGBTQ communities," Planned Parenthood said in a statement on its website.
