STOKING FIRE: Extremist Anti-Choice Groups Plan Five-State Assault | RH Reality Check

The fanatical fundamentalists are at it again. Not to be outdone by Catholic bishops clamoring for ever-increasing fetal protections, Flip Benham’s Operation Save America has teamed up with Go Stand Speak, LifeLink, Jeremiah Cry Ministries, Personhood USA, and Repent America to make five states—Arkansas, Mississippi, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wyoming—abortion “refuges.”

 

\The five were chosen because each has just one reproductive health clinic. What’s more, the campaign to make these states abortion-free will link grassroots activism—raucous picketing, complete with billboard-sized pictures of bloody body parts--with a media crusade geared to maligning those who support freedom of choice.

BREAKING: Office Of Texas Senator And Women's Health Advocate Firebombed | Dare To Be A Feminist | Scoop.it

by JESSICA PIEKLOBY,  Care2.com 

 

Texas State Sen. Wendy Davis, a strong supporter of Planned Parenthood and advocate for women’s rights, had her Fort Worth office firebombed Tuesday afternoon. Two staffers were in the office when the office was attacked, though reports at this time indicate no one was hurt. The suspect remains unidentified and on the loose.

 

The incident is the latest in a series of escalating attacks and rhetoric targeting vocally pro-choice legislators and family planning clinics. Previous attacks on clinics in Florida and California underscore the threat women and health care providers face simply trying to access or provide reproductive care. [MORE]
