On February 22, 2014 on of the Pinkhouse’s own Michelle Colon went on Huffington Post Live and told the real deal about what happens at JWHO while escorting patients. She revealed that indeed anti choice protesters aren’t just groups of harmless grandmothers <cough Operation Rescue cough>. Instead they are mostly old white men who approach any black person they see near the clinic and in the words of Michelle
say some of the most disgusting, degrading and racist comments to them
The full segment includes Liz Winstead escort advocate and comedian and Katie Klabusich who escorts at a clinic in New Jersey. It is well worth watching and debunks the lies set forth to the Supreme Court that anti-choice protesters are mostly composed of harmless Aunt Bea looking granny types who just want to pry. As Liz Winstead said
“Well she exists, the people who pray do exist. They absolutely exist there are people who say rosary and who are peaceful protesters who do that and then there are people who are not. Which is the majority of the people who hold up signs of some like post like post I don’t even know what giant fetus, stillborn baby or whatever it is they hold up and they are verbally assaulting people and so the woman, I don’t think anyone has a grievance unless you are chasing someone down with a rosary praying at them”
Unfortunately as Katie Klabusich pointed out some indeed do chase women down and pray at them. They do it here in Mississippi it is disgusting it is not a sign of God’s love it is nothing but shaming plain and simple. If being racist and shaming is the best that anti choice activists have to offer women they should probably stay home.
