Protect A Clinic
One day of an organizer
Severe violence, such as bomb threats, stalking, and death threats, continue to plague the nation’s women’s health clinics, affecting 18 percent of clinics in 2005, according to the Feminist Majority Foundation’s National Clinic Violence Survey. Moreover, 59 percent of clinics experience anti-abortion intimidation tactics. Some states are even legislating clinics out of existence – in Mississippi, only one abortion clinic remains in the entire state.
The Feminist Majority Foundation’s National Clinic Access Project is the oldest and largest clinic defense program in the country, working to keep women’s health clinics open in the face of violence and intimidation, and to bring anti-abortion terrorists to justice. We work with some 587 independent women’s health clinics. FMF clinic defense organizers regularly provide assistance to local communities and clinics that have been singled out for demonstrations by anti-abortion groups. We work in the field with the clinic staff and local volunteers to assist in preparing for anti-abortion protesters at their clinics, and we held defend the clinic during the anti-abortion activities. Your gift of $50 covers the expenses of a clinic defense organizer in the field for one day.
