Pro-life pickets found themselves in an awkward position recently raising
funds for the facility they were trying to close down.  When the Portland
Women's Feminist Health Clinic heard they were targeted, the staff got on
the phones and, with the help of the Community Clinic Defense Coalition,
solicited sponsors.  The more picketers that showed up and the longer they
waved their signs, the more money they brought in.  According to Leila
Whittemore, Clinic Defense Director, the fundraiser brought in a much needed
$700.  "Not bad for only three pickets," Whittemore observed.
