Protecting Our Clinics Against ViolenceThe threats of violence to reproductive health clinics in New York State are real. It was just last year that Dr. Bernard Slepian was killed by anti-choice extremists. Because of the NYCLU's historic commitment to protecting free speech and reproductive rights, the RRP is often looked to for analysis of clinic access legislation and litigation.
