The Feminist Majority Foundation’s National Clinic Access Project works to keep clinics open and accessible across the country, including working to counter clinic harassment, terrorism, and intimidation by anti-choice extremists. This week, our NCAP Director duVergne Gaines and National Campus Organizer Edwith Theogene are in New Orleans to keep local abortion clinics and providers safe in the face of Operation Save America / Operation Rescue’s week-long siege on clinics.

duVergne appeared on the Rachel Maddow Show last night to talk about what’s happening in New Orleans and across the country in the wake of McCullen v. Coakley, in which the Supreme Court struck down a Massachusetts law establishing a “buffer zone” around reproductive healthcare clinics in order to protect patients and providers from extremists.

You can support our work in New Orleans and across the country by giving to our National Clinic Access Project today. Our work to protect clinics has never been more critical and important – and neither has your support.
