There is a lot of news in the world of abortion rights, and much of it is not good.
But last Thursday was GREAT!
Choice Matters stood with NYS Attorney General James to announce a lawsuit against Red Rose Rescue clinic invaders in NYS. We were at the Planned Parenthood in Hempstead, NY.
And Choice Matters introduced the world to CATCH (Center for Analysis and Tracking of Clinic Harassers). CATCH does the research behind lawsuits like this one.
CATCH is a new, unique, national resource center which tracks anti-abortion terrorists. It compiles strategic resources for clinics and is showcasing legal strategies to successfully halt harassers from violent attacks. CATCH will provide a road map for law enforcement and prosecutors to effectively hold these violent offenders responsible to the fullest extent of the law. It will also provide information useful in the defense of legislative challenges by attorneys working to reverse reproductive justice laws.

CATCH is making a seismic difference at a critical time.
