As you may or may not be aware, there is going to be a huge protest at Dr. Carhart's clinic this weekend. This is the first full scale gathering of this nature since Dr. Tiller's assassination, so obviously, we are all a bit nervous how this is going to go down. Anti-choicers are claiming they'll be "peaceful," but you know, I guess that depends on what peaceful means to you. Personally, I think screaming, shouting, harrassing, and threatening is the antithesis of peaceful, but hey, maybe that's just me. *Insert bitter glare toward the religious right*
Rachel Maddow recently interviewed Dr. Carhart on this matter.
To Dr. Carhart and his staff - you are all in our thoughts and prayers. To the wonderful counter-protestors showing up to support Dr. Carhart, please be careful!
