Abortion Clinic Protesters Complain Pro-Choice Counter Protest Makes Them Feel Unsafe
Abortion clinic protesters outside of North Dakota’s only abortion clinic are very unhappy this week, because they’re being counter-protested by a guy holding signs reading “Hail Satan” and sarcastically referring to them as “women’s rights experts.” The anti-abortion protesters say their counter-protester is making them feel “uneasy.” Oh?
Red River Women’s Clinic in Fargo is the only clinic in the state that still provides abortion services. They’re routinely protested and use volunteer escorts to bring patients safely inside. As WDAY reports, though, they’ve lately been experiencing a bit of counter-protesting, courtesy of a guy named Nik Severson. Severson told WDAY he wants to make the protesters as uncomfortable as they make Red River’s patients. From WDAY:
“It’s a hard decision for these women to make this decision,” Severson told the station. “And they don’t need any more hateful messages. There’s pictures of dead baby fetuses out here and — it’s just a circus out here.”
