VIDEO: Clinic defenders record confrontation with anti-abortion protester

The Last Abortion Clinic is a blog dedicated to defending Mississippi’s last remaining abortion clinic, the Jackson Women’s Health Organization. Many of the blog’s founders actually act as escorts to patients of the clinic, protecting them from the harassment of anti-abortion protesters as they try to enter.

The purpose of the blog is to show the public what escorts and patients have to face from anti-abortion activists who assemble on the clinic’s property.

Below is an excerpt from a piece written by Lori Gregory-Garrott

I’ve known Roy,  a constant feature at the clinic and a member of Operation Rescue, (you know, that group who believes they are justified in killing abortion doctors) for about 10 years. I used to write a regular ‘Girls About Town’ column here in Jackson Miss. 10 years ago. I was very open about my liberal ideals and opinions. When I finally got pregnant, I wrote a column about it. Roy wrote me a letter in care of the paper telling me was ‘happy I was keeping my baby.’ This was after several pro-choice columns I had published. So, this idea that he holds the morality for the world isn’t new to Roy. He’s a regular fixture at the Last Clinic and one of the most zealous protesters.

Watch the clinic escorts’ confrontation with Roy in the video below.

    It’s too bad God didn’t give this ignorant asshole a brain! He certainly didn’t get a heart!

    Since this doesn’t have Roy’s full name, phone number or address of his residence, I’m dubious of the value of this post.

    I’ve never had an abortion, but I can’t imagine it’s a decision anyone arrives at without much heartbreak and soul searching. The thing is, it’s the woman’s decision, and legal right to take this option. It is not the option of this crazy old fart to harass her on what is probably the most agonizing day of her life. His behavior is appalling and threatening. He doesn’t care about the welfare of that woman, or her unborn child. He cares about bullying her to respect his beliefs. Thank goodness for the escorts.

    it’s time for an assisted living facility, this guy cannot possibly be competent to live on his own. He definitely does not belong on the street unsupervised.

    Gee, don’t those escorts feel threatened? They should stand their ground, eh?

    What a completely offensive dastard.

    Someone seriously needs to tune this freak up.

    I thought protestors had to legally stay far away from the clinics – this tactic only causes more psychic harm to the pregnant woman

    Yeah, right! Because Terry Nichols and his Operation Rescue thugs have never done anything this outrageous and never said that it is okay to kill doctors who provide LEGAL abortions. Yeah, I see where you’re coming from…NOT! Of course it’s real! There is no need to exagerate anything about these zealots, they are walking cariactures trying to ram their brand of religion down everyone’s throat!

    Great infographic, and it’s something we should all be aware of, whether we are employees, bosses, or business owners.  How we use social media greatly affects how people see us.
