Anti-Choice Protesters Target Middle School Children
These people are every bit as evil and twisted as the Phelps clan from Westboro baptist. They are bringing their zealotry and hate to middle schools, and targeting children who are only peripherally involved.
I once wondered why anti-choice protesters would bring their anti-abortion protests — especially those that include graphic, bloody images — around young children. After all, they say they want to protect children from harm.
Finally, we have one explanation. It’s to try to intimidate parents by making their children miserable.
According to the Washington Post, anti-choice protesters who have been trying to shut down the Germantown reproductive health clinic that Dr. Leroy Carhart provides later term abortions at have been having so little success that they have changed tactics. Now, a group is protesting outside of a local middle school where the daughter of the clinic’s landlord attends sixth grade.
The protesters have arrived with giant photos that are allegedly of aborted fetuses, as well as pictures of the landlord with “Please STOP the Child Killing” and the landlord’s full name, address and phone number written on it. That is, of course, the same last name and contact information of the little girl who attends the school, too.
Defend Life spokesman Jack Ames claims the protest is completely reasonable, as the clinic did not provide a public enough venue for their protests to be noted, and accused the landlord of trying to hide “under this cloak of anonymity.”
But it’s not the landlord hiding. It’s a young girl trying to attend school without being accosted and humiliated by anti-abortion “activists.”
