    Youth and Young Adults on the Frontline of Love

    Youth and Young Adults Respond to Operation Save America Targeting Services at First Unitarian Universalist Church of New Orleans, Louisiana were targeted on Sunday,  July 20, 2014 by members of the anti-abortion protest group Operation Save America (OSA)– formerly known as “Operation Rescue” – for having hosted the groundbreaking celebration of a new Planned Parenthood family counseling center to be built nearby.
