Law enforcement prepares for hundreds of anti-abortion protesters with 'Summer of Justice'
Wichita Eagle

Bleckley, the street that runs along the entrance of Trust Women South Wind Womenâs Center, the only surgical abortion clinic in Wichita, will be closed the week of âSummer of Justice,â White said. He said he wasnât sure if protesters would be able to stand in the street during the closure. FACE ActDuring the âSummer of Mercyâ in 1991, protesters blockaded access to abortion clinics and blocked streets entering the clinics, so patients had to walk through hundreds of protesters who tried to keep them from entering.In 1994, Congress enacted the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances Act, also called FACE Act. The act made it a federal crime to injure, intimidate or interfere with someone who is trying to receive an abortion, which is a legal procedure.According to the FBI website, it was created in reaction to âblockades, arsons, use of chemical irritants, bomb threats, death threats, stalking, and vandalismâ at abortion clinics and toward providers that rose dramatically in the mid-1980s and early â90s.
