JAMAICA, N.Y.—Forty-five defenders of women’s right to choose abortion turned out to escort patients into the Choices Women’s Medical Center here, Oct. 20. To counter the weekly harassment by an anti-abortion group a small number of escorts volunteer every Saturday. On this date two separate groups targeted the clinic.

“I’ve been harassed myself just going into a clinic for a cancer screening,” Melissa Quesinberry said, explaining to the Militant why she volunteers. “I come to help women get to the door and to stand in front so people don’t have to see the blown-up graphic images that they bring.”
