Letter: Reflections on a protest

By on April 8, 2010

As I was sitting in my car watching the protesters at the Aurora’s Planned Parenthood clinic on Friday, I was thinking to myself how hard it must be for a young woman to decide to seek information or even have to decide to have an abortion.

On top of this important, private decision, she now has to listen to harassment and insults by religious fanatics as she enters the clinic.

I believe in the right to protest as long as it does not interfere with the woman’s right to choose and the right to privacy.

Do you think that the protesters’ God would approve of such behavior? I think not!
