And I once helped someone home from the clinic when she had nobody else to turn to.  I don't see the pro-coathanger crowd as trying to relieve any suffering, after watching them up-close-and-personal while escorting.  ["Anti-abortion" isn't accurate, as they don't seem to want to help people avoid unwanted pregnancies in the first place. And "Pro-life" doesn't seem accurate since they don't seem to take the mother's life into account.]
