Sidewalk Snippet ~ {10/8/12}

The car pulled to the drop-off zone about 10 minutes before the doors of the clinic were due to open. We approached the car and let them know the doors weren’t open yet, but the client could stand beside the door. We explained the antis wouldn’t cross the property line.

“Will they talk to me?” We said, “Yes.” The client started crying and said, “I don’t want them to talk to me.” We advised them to park at one of the meters and we would let them know when the doors opened.

I walked down and approached the driver’s window to avoid the anti approaching them from the passenger’s side. We discussed the best way to get the client into the clinic with minimum interaction with protesters.The client and companion made the decision to circle the block and stop in the drop-off zone when the doors of the clinic opened.

It worked very well. The client got out of the car and immediately held my hand. We walked together hand-in hand for the short distance into the clinic.

  1. Good job on helping the client get into the client with a minimum of harrassement.

    I imagine she must have been going through a lot if just the thought of having those anti-woman people talk to her.

    Just, the work that you and others do is amazing for the sheer amount of compassion and warmth you show those in need of emotional help, be it a little or a lot.

    • Kazei5,

      We try to fit our actions to the client. Some do not need escort and some ask for a little more.

      Thank you,

  2. The antis are not just anti-choice, they are anti decency. The fact people are bullied so is anti-kind, anti-compassion, and anti-humane.
