In brief: This year’s #40Days campaign falls just after the Feminist Majority Foundation’s latest clinic harassment report; so, why isn’t the media covering the escalating climate of terror provider targeting has created? Justice and I talk my latest for Truthout.

Justice and I were a little short on our typical humor and sarcasm today discussing the history of the 40 Days for Life campaign, my targeting by the ProLife Action League last year, and this year’s actions on the heels of the Feminist Majority Foundation’s report. Almost 70% of clinics and more than half of individual abortion providers are regularly and directly targeted; if that’s news to you, it’s time to ask why the media and our legislators don’t seem to care.
