In the meantime the harassment continues

April 6, 2014

Today I had the unpleasant experience of reading an open letter from an anti-choice protester to Susie Allanson and the Fertility Control Clinic.Richard Grant Open Letter 1

These Helpers of God’s Precious Infants believe intently that they are doing God’s work. It takes quite an effort to read these letters of untruths and distortions, as they try to defend their harassment of women outside of health clinics, without throwing up. Their claim to virtuosity is galling.

I had read largely similar thing before but one passage caught my attention.

Richard Grant Open Letter 2 Sidewalk counsellors

This was interesting as I had just done some research on Richard Grant and I came across this link which included:

Richad Grant Sidewalk Counselling

Somehow a workshop on Sidewalk Counselling isn’t for these “life advocates”. Weird.

The intent of the open letter was regarding her article in the Herald Sun on March 14th 2014, entitled ‘Council has a duty to stop the harassment’. It repeated many of their previous claims, adding nothing new to the debate and I presume Susie Allanson will have filed it away, or supplied it to the clinic’s legal team.

Each passage firmed my opinion that an exclusion zone is needed to allow women to access these health services free of harassment. The sooner the better. In the meantime the 40 Days for Life continues, as does the daily harassment.
