Gee, how surprising.

The National Abortion Federation has been tracking violence against abortion providers and clinics since 1977. The Very Reverend Katherine Hancock Ragsdale, an Episcopal priest and interim president & chief executive officer of the organization, said the violence that providers face today is “beyond anything we’ve ever seen before.”

“We’re seeing a dramatic increase in violence and disruption against clinics,” she said in an exclusive interview with CBS News.

In 2017, violent acts against abortion providers more than doubled from the year prior, according to data compiled by NAF. The group recorded 1,081 violent acts, the most since the group began tracking these incidents.

Last year, the group recorded another new record high: 1,369 reported violent acts, including 15 instances of assault and battery, 13 burglaries, 14 counts of stalking and over a thousand episodes of illegal trespassing.

This is what happens when you spend decades vilifying a group of professionals providing a perfectly legal and often necessary service.

Abortion now has become so hard to access that women are being forced to travel from state to state to get the procedure. and once on the premises now they also have to worry about their own personal safety. 

This should not be happening in America.

    Most Americans do not want choice taken away.
    So of course its the crazy part of the minority who makes the most
    noise and commits all the violence.

    A long time ago I used to be an escort at an abortion provider. When protesters showed up at the clinic
    to scream at women who were going to have abortions (Thursdays and Fridays, so they knew when to assemble).
    I’d escort the women from their cars into the clinic. The filth I’d hear from some of those supposed christians
    who would called the women everything from whores to baby killers. It freaked me out and pissed me off, but I was determined.
    Until my time as an escort came to an end because finally, I lost it, and coldcocked some dude who spit on a teenager I was escorting inside.
    I was not then and still am not proud of punching him in the face and its been almost thirty years.

    But the people who terrorize PP are proud of their violence.

    Mike 666Pence spent $600,000 on limousine rides so he could stay at Trump’s resort in Ireland. Republicans don’t care

    “Any sexual encounter (with penetration) that occurs against somebody’s will is rape. If somebody is verbally pressured into having sex, it’s just as much rape,” said lead author Dr. Laura Hawks, an internist and Harvard Medical School researcher.

    In the years after coerced or forced sex, affected women had more sex partners, unwanted pregnancies and abortions, and more reproductive health problems including pelvic pain and menstrual irregularities than women whose first sexual experience wasn’t forced. Almost 16 percent reported fair or poor health, double the rate of other women. The study couldn’t establish whether forced sex caused or contributed to any of the health or other problems.”

    Imagine even younger…

    15+13+14= 32
