In late July, a dozen organizations launched the Summer of Trust, a campaign to defend Dr. LeRoy Carhart's new abortion clinic in Germantown, MD, from the Christian Fascist mobs assembled against the clinic by Operation Rescue. We'll hear reports from people who took part, including Debra Sweet, National Director of World Can't Wait, and a young woman who traveled from LA to join the protests. You can find the Summer of Trust on Facebook.
