This advice applies to Canadian pro-lifers as well

In the wake of the Kermit Gosnell case, Christina Dunnigan writes:

We need to stop being just an echo chamber. We need to be listening to Lila and Abby. We need to make sure every abortionist in America has somebody who's watching him, doing docket searches, checking medical board and health department records, visiting his facility, and just making it plain that even though prochoice leaders are willing to let the Kermit Gosnells of the world thrive at the expense of women and children, we're not.

I did a lot of soul-searching when that case came out.

How come there wasn't a sidewalk counsellor on the street? How come we were not there offering alternatives? (Or were we-- don't want to falsely blame the locals).

What if someone had handed out the list of lawsuits to potential clients, the way Joe Scheidler does?

And why aren't we doing any of this in Canada?
