Washington State Targets Pro-Lifers

The Washington Attorney General’s office has put pro-life individuals and pregnancy centers in the crosshairs. They’ve launched a “reproductive rights complaint form” on the state website. Anyone can file a complaint if the person feels they’ve experienced “harassment” at an abortion mill or experiences “deception, [or] harassment…at a crisis pregnancy center.” Pharmacies that refuse to provide abortion pills will also be targeted.  Harassment has been defined as praying outside abortion centers and offering alternatives to mothers. Planned Parenthood praised the form saying “protests” at abortion mills have doubled. Those targeted by complaints may result in an investigation against them. It’s nothing short of weaponizing Washington state government against anyone who oppose abortion.
