    The clinic’s owner, Dr. Laurent Delli-Bovi, has said that Women’s Health Services needed to relocate to Harvard Street because it could no longer afford the rent in Chestnut Hill.

    The clinic is one of only a dozen left in the state that openly advertises it will perform abortions, said Andrea Miller, executive director of NARAL Pro-Choice Massachusetts.

    That number is down from 17 in 2002, according to a NARAL study released last fall, and the drop is indicative of a nationwide decline in access to clinics that provide abortions, Miller said.

    Brookline police said they would be keeping a close eye on the area where Women’s Health Services reopened. In 1994, two women were killed at two abortion clinics in Brookline.

    But in this case, Brother said she believed she was in the safest neighborhood in the town because of the noticeable police presence.

    Are you surprised to hear this sort of thing is happening in the Liberal North East?
    Will abortion eventually become inaccessible anywhere in the US due to pressure from anti-abortion groups and locals who fear them?

    BROOKLINE - When he walked his child to preschool yesterday morning, Brookline resident David Gray passed several antiabortion protesters on Harvard Street who had signs with photos of fetuses and one that said, “Thou shall not kill.’’



    So after Gray left his child at school for the day, he walked up to the demonstrators and asked that they refrain from holding up signs with graphic images that could scare young children.

    “I asked them if they are going to be out here to think about the children who go to school here every day and think about the pictures they show,’’ Gray said.

    But Gray and dozens of other parents who can be seen walking hand-in-hand with their children on the way to school in Brookline Village every morning might have to get used to the sight of antiabortion demonstrations.

    It appears these protesters are proving it's true that anti-abortion activists care nothing for real, living children.

    There are those who see the unborn as real, living children too. They care equally for the unborn as they do for the born. Freaks.

    Is that why they frighten little kids on their way to daycare?

    What's funny is that the same people who argue against oil drilling, and wind power farms, etc, because it "kills living things", are the people who argue for killing a living thing inside a womb because it's inconvenient.

    Actually, that's not really funny. It's pathetic.

    The rent went up. They chose to move near a school. Who's fault is that?

    Inaccessible? The abortion clinic moved to a new location and is accessible to who ever wants to get an abortion.
