Not backing down
Pro-life group Operation Save America and federal prosecutors agreed to keep a “buffer zone” in place during last week’s protest in front of a Louisville, Ky., abortion facility. While protesters prayed, sang, and held signs unhindered, they were not allowed to physically block the front doors of EMW Women’s Surgical Center as they allegedly did in May. Abortion advocates staged their own counterprotest, shouting that Operation Save America is a “hate group” and the “American Taliban,” singing pop songs over the hymns, and covering pro-life signs with balloons. —S.G.
