    pink burkhas.

    We send them out to women and their family or other pro-choice activists who want to serve as escorts. A few blocks away the whole group stops and puts on the burkas, two blocks away, someone puts little covers over the license plates. The group gets out and walks to the clinic while the driver drives away. A different driver comes to pick the group up.

    If everyone is in a pink burkha, the counter protest would make the news with a loud non-violent protest. All the friends and escorts can't be individually harassed, not then, and not later.

        sole proprietorship under a "fictitious name" (that's what they call it when the name of your business does not include part or all of your actual name but a made up name) which is dirt cheap to legally create.  Just fill out a form and mail it in along with the fee so that the vehicle is then the property of say "People United for Choice" or something like that.

          regardless of their ability to perform abortions are targets of violence. The epidemiology of it is fascinating*, really.

          *By 'fascinating' of course I mean extremely terrifying.
