Colorado House Members Find Photos of Fetuses in Their Mailboxes
An anti-abortion extremist placed photos, perhaps illegally, of fetuses in the mailboxes of Colorado House members on February 4th. Kenneth Scott of Denver, who has a long history of arrests due to anti-abortion threats and violence, claimed responsibility for the act to House Majority Leader Rep. Norma Anderson. The photos were placed in the mailboxes on the same day the House State Affairs Committee heard a bill to ban the D&X procedure. Scott is currently under a restraining order to stay away from Dr. Warren Hern, a Boulder abortion doctor, after he stalked him and threatened his life. Dr. Hern was asked to leave a hearing two weeks ago on the D&X procedure so that Scott could testify.
