Report summarizing the National Abortion Federation’s data on violence and disruption perpetrated on abortion seekers and abortion providers from 2018 to 2021. “The 2021 Violence & Disruption Statistics show a concerning, but sadly unsurprising, increase in intimidation tactics, vandalism, and other activities aimed at disrupting services, harassing providers, and blocking patients’ access to abortion care. We saw the most significant increases in stalking (600%), blockades (450%), hoax devices/suspicious packages (163%), invasions (129%), and assault and battery (128%) compared to 2020”.
