For administrative staff at abortion clinics, there are no trophies, no fans, and no press, just the satisfaction of knowing they are helping those who need it.
There are only four public, clinic-based providers of third-trimester abortions remaining in the United States. After Tiller, a documentary that opens September 20, spends time with all of them, and you should go see it as soon as you can.
Representatives from the groups argue that the area should be re-zoned to disallow abortions, citing “graphic signs” that children can see if they pass the clinic. Individuals affiliated with some of the groups have been known to protest with graphic signs at the clinic.
