Since 1973, when the United States Supreme Court made abortion legal, there have been more than 53 million women in America who have chosen abortion. Those abortions also involved nearly 53 million men.
At a Washington Post blog, Rosalind Helderman discusses the process which new abortion clinic regulations in Virginia will be installed. Abortion clinics will have to abide by new regulations on January 1.
Federal prosecutors have filed suit against a man named John Kroack in Seattle for allegedly violating the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances Act.
According to the complaint, Kroack first entered the health center on Jan. 5, 2010, and struck up a conversation about abortion services. Kroack grew agitated but left without incident.
Two days later, Kroack was spotted walking in a wooded area near the center. At 10:30 a.m., he entered the facility and again struck up a conversation about abortion.
Writing the court, Diaz said Kroack became irate and tried to force his way into the clinic exam area. Diaz contended Kroack kicked and slammed himself into the door several times while shouting.
