Presence at Planned Parenthood intimidating

Dr. Karl and Dorothy Salscheider say in their Oct. 12 letter to the editor, “Praying 100 feet from the sidewalk entrance with our backs to the building, obstructing no one, hardly describes an intimidating environment.”

While what you describe is not in-your-face, personal, hostile intimidation, even a presence can most certainly be intimidating and daunting and can be an invasion of privacy and comfort zone. If all you wanted to do was pray for Planned Parenthood and their clients, that could be done anywhere, a personal physical presence isn’t required. Why you are there is obvious.
