On May 1st, a group of about 50 people gathered in Fargo, North Dakota. Their intent? To try and "shut down" the only clinic in the state that provides pregnancy terminations, in the hopes to make it an "abortion-free" state.
Leading the charge was Operation Save America, under the leadership of Rev. Flip Benham. Best known for his belief in "justifiable homicide" and his "Wanted" posters styled to make doctors who provide safe abortion care and those who employ them look like Old West villains (and with the "Dead or Alive" implied),Benham has been arrrested multiple times for stalking.
But although they are leading the States of Refuge movement, they are by no means the only group involved. And for some of those groups, their calls to action are just as intimidating.
Next, the group will be in Wyoming, where they will "target" the state's sole publicly known abortion provider, Dr. Brent Blue. "Spiritually, [stopping Blue] would punch a hole in the sky, and begin to liberate America from blood guilt one state at a time," said Operation Save America
