Planned Parenthood escorts “step on” pro-lifers

An article talked about the way clinic escorts at Planned Parenthood of Greater Iowa dehumanize pro-life sidewalk counselors:

“It tells the escorts to tape the name of a pro-lifer to the bottom of their shoes and then sing to themselves “Every step you take, every move you make, I’ll be squishing you.” Susan Gellinger of Planned Parenthood says that “This is a very empowering yet non-confrontational thing to do. You know you’ll be symbolically stepping on that person all day.”
