Taking a Knife To An Abortion Clinic

Robin Marty

Thank goodness the Florida "siege" is almost over.

Operation Rescue/Operation Save America has been laying a “siege” against Florida abortion clinics (and doctors, and clinic directors) by non-stop protesting both at the clinics themselves and the home addresses of employees.

Thank goodness it’s almost over.  It sounds like things were about to get really dangerous.

Via Ms. Magazine:

On Thursday, an FMF[Feminist Majority Foundation] organizer stopped known extremist Nicholas Heald of Wichita, Kan., as he attempted to invade a clinic. Heald had a pocket knife on his person, but it is unclear whether he intended to use it for violence. Heald was cited by police but not arrested. Heald is ‘friends’ on Facebook with some of the anti-abortion movement’s most extreme individuals, including Army of God adherent Neal Horsley and Operation Rescue President Troy Newman.

Yes, because there’s nothing threatening about an anti-choice harasser who just happens to be carrying a knife while trying to break the law.
