Abortion Foes to Picket at High Schools

So-called Operation Rescue plans to begin targeting high schools starting March 3 through the end of the 1997 school year in order to harass young men and women. The group says it wants to "educate" women on the abortion issue. Critics of the campaign believe that the picketing is a scare tactic also being used to incite more people to commit violence against abortion providers and clinics. Gloria Feldt, president of Planned Parenthood, commented "These kinds of offensive, almost intimidating tactics will not be successful with young people any more than with adults."
