Just Another Clinic Morning

clinic
This week’s women’s clinic experience was hairy. Outspoken “prayer warriors” tried engaging us clinic volunteers, calling us “supporters of genocide” and breaking with the typical shouts of “baby killer” and “murderer” aimed at the traumatized, tearful women we protect when they arrive at the clinic entrance for procedures. Targeting clinic escorts with this nasty vitriol is a new tactic employed by these nuts, but frankly, we’re there to deflect flack away from women we protect, so if these zealots want to call me names, I hereby offer them this proclamation: I’m up to date on my “sticks and stones” mantra.
