    Your FWIW means a lot if it is true! I only know what I saw/experienced back in the late 80's when the ProLifers were into blocking clinic enterances, Operation Rescue and Promise Keepers. And the word on the street, for what that is worth. I would be interested in what you discover. The reputation has been pretty strong for a very long time.
