New York Attorney Gen. Eric Schneiderman has filed a federal lawsuit against a coalition of Christian pro-life protesters who’ve been accused of threatening patients, staff and family members outside of an abortion clinic in New York City for years.  The attorney general’s office announced on Wednesday that it filed a federal harassment lawsuit against 14 pro-life activists who it claims repeatedly “harassed, threatened, and menaced patients, families, escorts, and clinic staff” at the

Other protesters with no church or organizational affiliation are also listed in the lawsuit. READ MORE
