Woman Takes Down Planned Parenthood Protesters With 'Yeast Infections' Chant

All hail our new shero.

Mary Numair took down Planned Parenthood protesters in quite an unusual, but awesome way.

According to BuzzFeed News, the 29-year-old Oregon copywriter and Planned Parenthood supporter noticed protesters outside a local clinic in Portland. After trying to approach them multiple times, she opted for a more creative route.

On Oct. 25, Numair arrived at the protest with a sign that read, "Dear P.P., Thanks for helping me with my yeast infections." In a tweet, she said she broke up the protest by chanting the words "yeast infections."

Numair explained to BuzzFeed News that Planned Parenthood provides many services. She said she received her first birth control pills from the health care provider and treatment for UTIs and yeast infections when she was 20.

"Planned Parenthood is [a] vital resource for so many people," she told BuzzFeed News. "We have to look beyond the pro-life/pro-choice debate and recognize this organization is out there providing some of the most important care to our sensitive medical needs."

Since being posted on Oct. 25, Numair's initial tweet about the protest has been retweeted more than 2,100 times and favorited more than 4,700 times. She told Slate she did get called a "whore" at the protest, but also received support, especially on social media.

That about sums it up.
