A Voice of Reason, No Nazi Uniforms In Sight

Abby Zimet

The pro-choice landlord of a Maryland women's clinic - who at five saw the same clinic, run by his doctor father, firebombed - is fighting back against a new generation of anti-abortion activists after they protested at his daughter's school and blanketed his neighborhood with fliers likening him to a Nazi "responsible for the deaths of thousands of innocent pre-born babies." Todd Stave's “Voice of Choice” offers "a calm, measured response": He calls the perpetrators to politely thank them for their prayers, explain he supports women's right, ask how their kids are doing, and bless their home. So do thousands of vounteers. Over and over.

Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
