Gakked from tsubaki_ny this piece from Rolling Stone documents the tactics being used by Operation Rescue against Tiller's clinic and its staff. Tiller's killer was part of this sub-culture; what worries me, though, is that I can imagine similar tactics being used by anti-abortion fanatics in this country as well as in the US. My admiration for people who stand up to this sort of bullying knows no bounds.

Some while ago, I had a row with some of my animal rights supporting friends and said that the tactics they approve of against fox-hunters or vivisectionists could be turned against minorities or pro-choice forces any time. I fear I was right - Operation Rescue have moved on from picketing clinics.
