Fundamentalists still harassing Planned Parenthood

On the 4th of October shortly before noon, fundamentalist Christians were holding some kind of prayer vigil on the lawn of Planned Parenthood in DC. I do not know how they got the right to be on that lawn. Clinic escorts were present to help patients get past the anti-choicers. I asked one of the escorts when would be a good time to get photos with no patients in the way, and was told “right now.” As I was doing so one of the right-wing “sidewalk counselers” engaged me with angry rhetoric. One of the escorts said their objective is confrontations with anyone present so as to create a tense atmosphere to deter patients. Years ago I even saw them do this to a full service hospital in Virginia.
