Bombs, Shootings, Arson, Death Threats: Writer Details What It's Like to Work at Women's Health Clinic

In a series of tweets posted Sunday night, Bryn Greenwood describes the campaign of terror she experienced while working at a Planned Parenthood.

Over the weekend, the GOP candidates scurried to distance the Republican Party's extreme anti-choice rhetoric from the actions of Robert Lewis Dear, the gunman who murdered three people at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado. With the exception of Mike Huckabee, they also dissembled when asked if the attack constituted domestic terrorism.

In a series of tweets posted Sunday, Bryn Greenwood described the campaign of terror she experienced when she volunteered at a Planned Parenthood clinic. Although the clinic did not perform abortions, the volunteers were subjected to everything from attempted arson to cherrybombs to phone calls calling them "murdering whores," all for the depraved activity of providing health care to low-income women.

"The goal was to make us afraid to come to work, to make us quit, to make us close the clinic. That's terrorism. That's how terrorism works," Greenwood noted. See her tweets below:
