An anti-abortion group hoping to persuade women not to end their pregnancies offered free sonograms on the doorstep of a South Bronx abortion clinic yesterday, drawing few takers and a mixture of curiosity and anger from neighbors.
The mobile "crisis pregnancy center" – an RV that travels from clinic to clinic – is a new tactic in the anti-abortion movement, and it angered officials at the Dr. Emily clinic, one of at least seven clinics in the borough where the procedure is performed.
"This is going to hurt women," said a clinic administrator.

As Jill noted the headline "Abort-foe RV gives sonograms, but critics say it ‘hurts women’" is based totally on this one quote with no explanation how an RV offering sonograms hurts women. Though I guess if the RV happened to run over some women this could be credible. Barring that I guess access to truth hurts women; that is if the women work in an abortion clinic and they loose some ‘business.’
