Kentucky's last abortion clinic in long-running war


Kentucky's last abortion clinic in long-running war
The Courier-Journal

At dawn, protesters kneel on the concrete sidewalk holding crosses and rosaries, swaying, singing and praying aloud. Police cruiser lights flash on a corner near an Action Loan shop. Men stalk the sidewalk waving posters of bloody abortions, reading from Bibles and preaching damnation on portable loudspeakers.Women, arriving for appointments, emerge warily from cars and are hustled briskly down the sidewalk by dozens of orange-vested escorts toward the EMW Women's Surgical Center. Their faces harden as protesters follow them, pushing religious tracts, offering adoption or calling them murderers.Flanked by clinic escort Meg Stern on one side and protester Donna Durning on the other, one woman is converged upon by a scrum of shouting protesters as she reaches a white private property line painted on the concrete and lined with escorts before finally entering the mirrored glass doors of Kentuckyâs last remaining abortion clinic.
