40 Days of Bullying

Jos over at Feministing has announced that the anti-choice campaign 40 Days for Life has started. The campaign seeks to recruit new antis to ramp up more harrassment outside of abortion clinics nationwide.

I'm not going to link to the actual 40 Days for Life campaign website (Jos already has) but they do have a list of targeted clinics on the website. No Oklahoma clinic is among them (there are three providers in the state). I don't know whether to be relieved that no one will suffer anymore harrassment than they already do, or concerned that they don't see us as much of a threat (meaning they think the tactics they're already using are working). Then again, not being on the website doesn't mean people won't try anything.

In any case, be vigilant, and if you're going to be in any of our surrounding states (Texas is getting hit pretty hard), it would be cool to contact a clinic in the area and see what you could do to help, like volunteering your time as a clinic escort.
