I think that all of this picking of these clinics and throwing chemicals into them to make them so you can’t use them, can’t get the chemicals out, all the restrictive laws, the law of the land is now what the Supreme Court has said. And I think to keep pushing these clinics back into situations where they wind up like this is wrong; I think no matter where you stand on the issue of abortion people who…make that decision should not have to worry about infections, some butcher like this doing the bad things they do.”
