Note: This is what I do now; I’m an activist full-time. I’m completely committed to changing the face of clinic access in this country. If you can, consider supporting my work so I can do more of it by clicking HERE and making a one-time or recurring (just click the box) contribution. All the funding goes to equipment, travel to other conferences/clinics/meetings with pro-choice legislators/training new escort programs and supplies. Thank you!
Today, I jumped on with Nicole Sandler to talk about the Pro Life Action League targeting, clinic closures and violence against providers not being a thing of the past.
She put some solid show notes together along with the full podcast at: “Colbert, Christie, Climate, Christian hypocrisy”. We also discussed the Religion Dispatches piece as well as David Cohen’s great article for Talking Points Memo: “When Anti-abortion Harassment Gets Personal”
I don’t plan to quit talking about this. If it’s ok to target me with multiple posts, emails, internet memes, twitter harassment, etc. — who exactly does the ProLife Action League consider to be off-limits? I’m not exactly a private citizen considering my public activism and media work, but I’m certainly not the highest profile pro-choice advocate or talking head in this country.
More media seems to be taking notice that anti-choice groups aren’t limiting their targeting to slandering and threatening doctors. They’re moved on to journalists and activists. This is not ok. Still waiting on the corporate media to wake up. (Yes, I’m aware that could be a long wait, but I’m not giving up.)
So, thank you to Nicole and other independent hosts/writers who understand the history and are appropriately outraged at the (at best) irresponsible behavior and rhetoric of the PLAL. Hopefully, it can shine a light on the behind the scenes destructive actions they’ve been engaged in since their public move to non-violence.
