I haven’t done it, but I know a few people who have. I would definitely do it!

I think it’s SHAMEFUL how some women are treated when they are simply exercising their legal right to choose. If you don’t agree with abortion, don’t have one, but I find it reprehensible to shame other women who are making the best choice for themselves and their circumstances. I think being an escort is a wonderful way to support both the pro-choice movement and the individual women who are going through such a difficult time in their lives.

I live in a very liberal area of the country, though, so there really aren’t a lot of anti-choice protestors outside of the clinics near where I live. If you live in an area where this is common, you should definitely get involved!

I tried to do that when I lived near a clinic that was involved in a historic Supreme Court ruling, and therefore had bad protests each weekend. I had a friend who did it in college and found it fulfilling. I ended up not ever doing it because planned parenthood’s online app was really glitchy and I couldn’t get it to work, and never followed through in person.

I am pro choice.  But I think it is at a different level to be an escort- it is something I am not sure I could do.  If you think you could do it then it would be a wonderful thing.

@Zhabeego:  I haven’t but I would in a heart beat!! I feel very strongly about being pro-choice, as does my FH. Infact, the abortion clinic where we live gets picketed every abortion day by the pro-life people who located to the building attached to the abortion clinic just so they can try to manipulate pregnant women into going to their building, we have been planning on making enormous supportive signs for these women and standing infront of the picketers so they can’t be seen haha

@Zhabeego:  I don’t know much about this. I haven’t heard of any violent protests happening where I live, but would you be in danger? I wouldn’t put myself in danger of physical harm, but if people were just going to yell at me, sure.

The people I’ve known who did it (internet people, actually, don’t know any in person) were big burly men. The women felt safe with them, I’m not sure how helpful little 5’2″ me would be. Obviously anyone is better than no one, but I have not considered doing it to be honest. Crazy mad props to those who do, though.

I have visited these clinics before and have never seen any protestors.  The one in an area I lived in previously was in a regular office building with other Dr.’s offices and legal offices. 

I didn’t even know there was a need (still).

@Zhabeego:  I hadn’t even heard of this; this would be totally unheard of in the UK, thank god. It shocks me that people are that ignorant and backwards.

To answer your question, I don’t know. I have a short temper and wouldn’t want to escalate the situation. That said, if I were going for one myself, I would SO enjoy winding them up.

@Zhabeego:  Sorry but why on earth are they allowed to do this? They should be locked up, and the key thrown away, freaks!
