Students praying outside a Washington state Planned Parenthood said they were exposed to multiple instances of obscene and inappropriate behavior from people passing by, including an incident where a man masturbated at them from a car.
Whatcom Community College Students for Life leader Autumn Lindsey told the Daily Caller News Foundation that she and several other students were doing a “40 Days for Life” campaign Saturday outside the Bellingham, Washington, Planned Parenthood when the incidents occurred.
“We have people constantly scream at us or flip us whole driving by,” Lindsey said. “Occasionally we have people come talk to us. Sometimes the women going into Planned Parenthood come talk to us and we tell them that we love them and that they have other options.”
People drove by the group of four students Saturday “yelling obscenities and displaying crude gestures,” according to a Students for Life press release. One man masturbated in a car “towards the group” as his friend drove slowly by the protesters, it said. Another woman flashed the group while yelling, “My body, my choice,” according to the press release. . .
The press release also noted that a group of people “yelled threateningly in one young student’s face, calling him a ‘c***sucker,’” and that a man rode his bike past the students and threw a glass vial at them that shattered.
