Often the best blogs give you access into a world you otherwise would never see, or even think about. Every Saturday Morning is written by somebody who escorts women into an abortion clinic, through a gauntlet of tens or hundreds of protesters. I had no idea such a volunteer service even existed:
We do this because clients of the clinic are often met at their cars by protesters. Between 2 and 5 protesters will follow/chase a client from their car parked in the public lot across the street to the private property line; talking at them, handing out literature, attempting to steer clients into the fake clinic down the block, shouting misinformation, slowing their pace, blocking the door and impeding clients any way they can.
I was under the impression that many clinics had the equivalent of restraining orders, that protesters couldn’t come within 100 feet (or whatever) of the building. Reading this bog, I guess that’s not the case in Louisville.
