I. Introduction A. Questions/Thesis- Do people seeking health care have a right not to be harassed when ascertaining that care? Do protesters have a right to harass anyone accessing medical care? What defines harassment? Should be limit protests and demonstrations about medical care? Are the stipulations put on an individual accessing abortion services a form of government-sponsored harassment? B. Explanation of the issues- 1. STATEMENT FROM ACOG: “Safe, legal abortion is a necessary component of women’s health care. The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists supports the availability of high-quality reproductive health services for all women and is committed to improving access to abortion. Access to abortion is threatened by state and federal government restrictions, limitations on public funding for abortion services and training, stigma, violence against abortion providers, and a dearth of abortion providers. Legislative restrictions fundamentally interfere with the patient-provider relationship and decrease access to abortion for all women, and particularly for low-income women and those living long distances from health care providers. The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists calls for advocacy to oppose and overturn restrictions, improve access, and mainstream abortion as an integral component of women’s health care.” (Committee, 2014) 2. Definitions: a) pro-choice/pro-life vs. pro-choice/anti-choice: Google Chrome released an extension in February that will change every mention of “pro-life” to “anti-choice”. Andrea Miller, the president of National Institute of Reproductive Health, said her organization shares the unnamed Google activist’s concern over the “pro-life” label, particularly when that label applies to legislation designed to limit reproductive autonomy.(Culp-Ressler, 2016)

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
