I’ve worked at reproductive health clinics for decades, and the protesters have done a lot to make my life difficult over the years. They invaded my clinic. They chained themselves to exam tables. They injured staff. They harassed my children. And every Mother’s Day, they vandalized my home.
So why am I still here? It’s pretty simple -- if I don’t come to work, women don’t have the care they want and need.
I am Emily X.
I am Planned Parenthood.
