Check this out ~ Access Denied ~ is on the cover of the LEO Weekly. The LEO is a local newspaper – the Louisville Eccentric Observer.
Joe Sonka, who wrote the article, does a great job exploring and summarizing the state of abortion access in Kentucky. As one small part of the process, he spent some time on the sidewalk, talking to antis and taking pictures, and had breakfast with us escorts a couple of Saturday mornings.
So I recommend the whole article, but I admit, this is my favorite part:
A woman named Mary — infamous among the regular escorts as the most violent and hateful chaser — shoves her way in between a client and an escort, then feigns indignation, “Give the client some space!” The client shakes her head with a mix of amusement and disgust.
It’s satisfying and fascinating to see our own stories told in print by someone else – and if you’ve read our blog for a while, you’ve already heard some Mary-stories too.
In the meantime, many of us are super busy getting ready for the Kentucky Road Rally for Reproductive Rights. Only three more weeks until Saturday, November 2nd when we will roll into Frankfort to rally on the Capitol steps at 1:00 PM.
We invite you to join us – register to attend the rally or make a financial contribution here , like our Facebook page, and or Twitter feed, twitter.com/kyroadrally. Tweet with hashtag #kyr4.
And now I’m off to the clinic for another Saturday morning…
Fabulous ! ! ! Is there a way to share this on Facebook? I wanna pass this around!
Thanks, Oubli – yes, of course there’s a way to share it! I need to add a Facebook share button to the blog, I forget that we don’t have one, but if you click on the title of the post, then copy and paste the url to your Facebook post it will link directly to that particular article.
Thanks for asking and for sharing!!
Whoooo. Don’t know if I could have laughed after being kicked. But I will remember how well it worked for you in case the need ever comes up here. Thanks for posting.
Thanks for commenting, Linda!
This article is exceptional. I have shared this with many throughout the network, and I absolutely applaud the writer(s).
Meanwhile, thanks for what you do! I am on my way to our own clinic here in Akron. Showed up on Wed because 40 days for life had a speaker outside our clinic (think 26 year old salesman pushing his book). Got literally kicked in the butt by a protester, and laughed in his face so bad he got humiliated and went home 🙂
See you soon!
I’m delighted that you got rid of your speaker!
It was a terrific article, thanks for sharing it, and thanks for what you do!!
