    PP is a long way down the list of where women go when they're looking for an abortion. This is readily available information. It takes a bit more work to figure out where women actually go for abortion services.

    Clinics.

    The 378 specialized abortion clinics accounted for 21% of all abortion providers, but performed 70% of all abortions in 2008 (Table 4). Most of these facilities reported 1,000 or more abortions during the year.

    That's using a definition of specialty clinic distinguished as half or more services being abortions. That means ... not Planned Parenthood clinics.
    That means, by your own admission, PP clinics which focus on providing abortion services, which means ... PP clinics - just not all of them. I'm not a math wiz, but if 70% of abortions are performed at PP clinics, then they sort of have to rank at the top, yes?
    I'm gob-smacked that folks who are willing to go to the trouble of packing up the kids for a fun-filled day of terrorizing women going in for cheap birth control pills, which is mostly what you'll find inside a clinic, can be that oblivious about who it is they're shouting at.
    I've never had much inclination to picket anyplace, but I can't imagine that it would be much fun. This is also the first time I've heard the allegation that such people picket any old PP clinic, rather than focus on those which provide abortions (such information, presumably, being readily available). Maybe you could point me to information demonstrating that people regularly picket the wrong place.

    It might, if the gold could be melted down. Otherwise the source is sort of obvious.

    You blew it in #112, OBP. The stats show clearly that 70% of abortions are NOT performed at Planned Parenthood. Nor does it say that the other 30% are all performed at PP.

    It is only hate speech if you are a conservative or a Christian. Advocating violence against police, for example, is for the most part ignored.
    Micah 6:8 He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?
