Transcript REPRODUCTIVE RIGHTS On July 6, 1984, six pro-choice groups called for "massive federal intervention" to put an end to a "reign of terror" including bombings and harassment at abortion clinics and offices in Washington and six states. Barbara Radford, executive director of the National Abortion Federation, said.•."There is a reign of terror throughtout the country. Patients and staff at abortion facilities are being harassed, clinics are being invaded and machine-gunned, and so far this year nine abortion clinics have: been bombed".... 1 mention this to you to introduce the rest of this article, The following remarks are from a letter we received from Sammye Roberts, pant Bay /Vrea HOW member who now lives in Fairhope, Alabama, a suburb of Mobile. As much as we miss Sammye, the work and actions being taken by our sisters in Mobile is of greater cause. We salute Sammye and the many LOW members of Mobile and all the other areas of the country who are putting their lives on the line to protect the right of every woman to make her own choice in her reproductive life. ....The anti-choice (be damn if I'll call them Right-to-Life groups) people are really stepping up activities in our area. The Ladies ('enter in Pensacola (bombed Monday, June 25th and owned by the same people operating the Ladies Center in Mobile and the Hunrlsviile, Al clinic vhich has been having a rough time) is now being picketed...More and more men are joining the Anti-choice pickets.... And, will you believe this one: thursday, June 28th, our ciiapter held a LOW/PAC fundraising with wine 6. cheese, etc. in Mobile and the home of the hostess was picket ted???... The local M3C affiliate showed up and talked with one of the "ladies", and I use the term loosely, who informed the reporter that the NOW executives were holding an urgent, special meeting to further aid the abortionists in Mobile!!!...The tension is gathering steam and we wonder how long it will be before we start getting the late night calls like the Uuntsville NOW members are getting. The Huntsville NOW spokesperson has received nearly ten death threats via telephone....Sat., 7-7-84, We were "on the line" this morning at 8am and shortly thereafter the clinic executive director arrived and we had some good news and some bad news..the bad news is tnat the Mobile clinic came close to being bombed around midnight last night. The good news is that they were not successI'ul and the woman who was caught is in jail right n ow TO OUR SISTERS AM) BROTHERS WHO ARK FIGHTING THIS WAR... OUR LOVE, PRIDE, AND TOTAL RESPECT. OUR STRENGTH BE WITH YOU!
