Extremists Targeting Clinics This Summer!

From the:

Clinics across the country need your help now. We are currently preparing to help clinics that are being targeted by anti-abortion extremists this summer.

Every summer extremists target clinics. This summer we are expecting more. Please donate now to support emergency clinic defense organizing, law enforcement briefings, and training of volunteers. One of our first priorities this summer will be Atlanta and Denver clinics.

This year marks the 20th anniversary of the 1988 anti-abortion protests at the Democratic National Convention in Atlanta. Operation Save America is planning to return to Atlanta to protest at the city's clinics in July.

What's more, Operation Rescue, Missionaries to the Pre-Born, and the Christian Defense Coalition have announced plans to protest at the Democratic National Committee convention in Denver this August. We are working to prepare for these planned demonstrations, but we cannot do it without your help.

We are also at a crucial junction in the fight for Dr. Tiller's clinic in Wichita. Dr. Tiller has been locked in a legal battle with a grand jury that anti-abortion extremists groups petitioned to convene. The Kansas Supreme Court recently ruled to limit the power of the grand jury to engage in a fishing expedition, but did not quash the subpoena for the confidential medical records of some 2,000 of Dr. Tiller's patients.

We have launched a massive public outreach campaign to alert the country and to organize support for Dr. Tiller. His clinic is the last resort for women all over the country seeking late term abortions for fetal anomalies, for severe illness, and to protect their very lives. We will not allow Dr. Tiller's clinic to close as the result of a mean-spirited, anti-abortion attack.

The Feminist Majority Foundation's National Clinic Access Project will be on-site to help these besieged clinics this summer.

We cannot allow any clinic to be closed. Without clinics, there is no choice. Please donate today to support our National Clinic Access Project, the nation's oldest and largest such project, which has been on the front lines helping clinics stay safe for twenty years.
