  • In Mississippi, abortion clinic protesters got a scare when a man stopped his car and slashed up their sign with hunting knives.
  • Francis Grady, a 50-year-old man with a fairly extensive criminal past, has admitted he tried to burn down a Planned Parenthood in Wisconsin.
  • The Washington Post profiles “anti-abortion grandpa” Dick Retta, a sidewalk counselor who has been sued under the FACE Act:

    Retta’s lawyer, Jim Henderson, denies in court documents that Retta blocked the woman from entering the clinic. She had approached Retta for help, he wrote, and volunteers were leading her into the clinic against her wishes. He said Retta didn’t shout or yell but said to the woman, “don’t let them force you to have an abortion,” a statement protected by the First Amendment to the Constitution.
