Anti-abortion legislation is sweeping across some of the southern states in America while violence and disruption against abortion clinics in the US continues to rise, demonstrated in a viral video at Kentucky's last abortion clinic.
Six states, including Kentucky, have only one abortion clinic left. The video, originally filmed in April but has since gone viral, shows a woman with her face covered trying to make her way through a throng of anti-abortion protesters.
As she walks through, religious protesters can be heard telling her to "repent", offering to adopt her baby and using inflammatory language accusing the pregnant woman of "murdering" her unborn child.
Needless to say, the video has been widely condemned online.

“Anti-choice individuals and groups have been emboldened by the rhetoric of president Trump, vice president Pence, and other elected officials and we are seeing this play out in more instances of activities meant to intimidate abortion providers and disrupt patient services,” said Dr Katherine Hancock Ragsdale, who serves as interim president and CEO of NAF.
