Several of us are still processing the intensity that took place when extremists invaded our city last week. They aimed to close down the clinic, but we are not willing to let them halt legal abortion in our state, not even for a day or a week. Escorts planned, trained, and stood firm for access. Here are some of the images we captured from ground zero. Unless otherwise specified, these pics were taken by individual Louisville Clinic Escorts. All photos shared with permission.
Barely controlled chaos
If you think it looks like they’ve taught their children to harass, you are not the only one thinking that.
Vince Heuser is the local attorney who is currently representing OSA. He also offered to do pro-bono work for Scott Roeder after he murdered Dr George Tiller in 2009. Here he is trespassing at the staff entrance, standing in the buffer zone attempting to negotiate with a US Marshal, and distracting the local bomb squad who were on duty every day, due to the threats made by Heuser’s clients….
The (escorts’) look says it all.
As reflected in our Media Policy and Points of Unity, we are aware that the presence of cameras can be frightening for clients and companions and have real consequences for escorts too. For that reason, we seldom welcome photographers to the sidewalk. On rare occasions, some photographers do behave respectfully and may be unobtrusive. A team of two local folks managed to capture some breathtaking images, and granted us permission to share them. Credit in captions.
