A Found Diary Reveals the Tactics of Anti-Abortion Protestors

Reporter for the Village Voice, Jennifer Gonnerman. In 1994 Planned Parenthood won a judgement against Operation Rescue, which had to sell off its office equipment to satisfy the judgement. A pro-choice activist bought many of those items in a public auction, including six computers. In one of the computers was a journal kept by one of Operation Rescue activists. Gonnerman examined the journal for her article "Inside Operation Rescue: Stakeouts, Stalking, Dirty Tricks: An Antiabortion Operative Tells All In His Diary," which appeared in the February 11, 1997 issue of the Village Voice.
