Here are some photos from the Planned Parenthood clinic in Houston that was recently attacked by a protester who smashed a van into the clinic's front door. You can see from the first couple of pictures how fortified the entrance is. From the pictures labelled "Frank Bird Van from outside" and "Frank Bird Van in door from outside", you can see the private driveway that he had to enter before crashing the van. The sidewalk in front of the door is inside clinic property. Patients get dropped off there, where protesters cannot confront them. The last photo, "Door after van removed", shows the space between the front door and the street. The gentleman in the gray suit on the right is Peter Durkin, the executive director of the clinic.
Thanks to Pete for forwarding the link.Posted by Charles Kuffner on March 10, 2003 to Elsewhere in Houston | TrackBack
