The new barrier around Planned Parenthood in Everett seems like a major setback for the local pro-life movement (“Officials create a no-protest zone around Planned Parenthood,” The Herald, April 25). The opposite is true. It means that those prayers and regular presence of various groups, raising their voices for the most vulnerable of our society are actually working.
The fence around that building is now a constant reminder that abortion is not normal. It is a visible sign, day and night, reminding people who walk in there, that there are other options. The empty sidewalk, protected now by police, became a memento for all the babies whose chance to live ended right there, at that place. That is now the Sidewalk of Missing Babies of Everett.
