I hope they stay safe and continue to provide the important service of late-term ABs safely and professionally.

Mark Gietzen, chairman of Kansas Coalition for Life, said people in his group... persuaded 396 women not to have abortions at the clinic.
If this isn't completely made up I assume this means that that harrassed and intimidated 396 women into skipping or delaying whatever procedure or test they were going to have done regardless of what it actually was.

Or maybe the women just said what they wanted to hear so they'd shut up. But yeah, my money is also on the number being pulled out of their ear.

The relationship between antiabortion people and the truth is frequently strained and distant. I don't see why this should be any different.
