Operation Rescue sets up shop across the street from Dr. Carhart

From RH Reality Check comes word that Operation Rescue, the extreme anti-choice organization that leads protests against clinics that perform abortions, along with Maryland Coalition for Life, has rented the building across the street from Dr. Carhart’s clinic.

Dr. Leroy Carhart, who recently opened his clinic in Maryland, is one of the only doctors in the US who still performs late term abortions, a list that used to include his friend and colleague Dr. George Tiller. The Germantown clinic is already the target of anti-choice protesters and sidewalk stalkers, and this new move means that’s only going to get worse. From The Washington Post:

“Bunnies in a Blender” and other anti-choice videos

The American Life League has released a new video calling for the defunding of Planned Parenthood because they abuse animals…oh wait, no, that’s not quite right.

Transcript after the jump.

I was promised this video would have me “seeing red.” But I’m just confused. As a pro-choice person, I don’t believe that abortion–a legal medical procedure that’s an integral part of reproductive health care and a fundamental human right of all women–is all that much like blending bunnies. And as a pro-truth person, I know that Planned Parenthood already doesn’t receive any taxpayer funding to provide abortions. (Despite the fact that they damn well should.) So this whole debate has about as little to do with abortion as it does ...

Memo to anti-choice terrorists: You’re not doing much to decrease abortion rate

While you think it’d be more effective to convince anti-choice extremists who commit acts of terror against abortion clinics that what they’re doing is inherently wrong (because they’re, you know, attempting murder and all), this may be something they’d ponder more closely: Research is showing that these “tactics” may actually be pretty ineffective in decreasing abortion rates.

The authors find that while in the short-run there is a small increase in local fertility (1%), in the longer run women simply travel to other areas in order to have abortions. If this is, in fact, the case, then the overall the effect on abortion rates is negligible, suggesting that this particular form of terrorism is largely ...

Operation Rescue member found guilty for “wanted” posters

Philip “Flip” Benham of Operation Rescue (renamed to Operation Save America) has been found guilty by a North Carolina court of criminal stalking with intent to cause emotional distress and disruption of domestic tranquility for residential picketing. This is after he contested that distributing “wanted” posters of abortion providers was free speech and not, you know, potentially inciting violence.

He has received two years probation and ordered to stay away from the doctors he targeted. Check out Broadsheet for more, including what the actual “wanted” posters said, as well as noting (via NPR) that the last time these kinds of posters were made was in the late 1990s — when several providers were ...
