Todd Stave was an ordinary landowner from Massachusetts. In everything except for one: his tenant was a clinic where they had abortions. it meant that his private estates were often besieged by protesters. Despite the fact that Stave himself was convinced that every woman has the right to choose abortion, he tried to be tolerant, and recognized the right of the public to express his point of view and didn’t even mind that national anger pour out in his private territory.

The protesters, on the whole, also behaved quite correctly. All, except for activists of a group called Protect Life, which soon tired of fighting with no attention to them clinic, and they brought down all their anger at Stave and his family.

Once, five members of the organization “Protect Life” staged a rally protest outside the school building of Stave’s 11-year-old daughter. In their hands were posters with photos of Steve himself and various personal information and all sorts of creepy pictures that were supposed, by design, to leave an indelible imprint on the children’s psyche.

This action “Defenders of Life” caused a real shock even opponents of abortion. But the group was not going to stop. The next item on the program was telephone harassment. Activists called at any time of the day or night and, unashamed in expressions, threatened all members of the Stave family.

And then Stave assembled a group of volunteers called “Voice of choice. “The task was simple – call back the telephone terrorists after each call.

Members of the Voice of Choice did not threaten or be rude – just polite thanked the “Defenders” for prayers and good wishes, but at the same time reminded that their opponents also have the right to their own opinion. And that’s it. Each member of the Voice of Choice movement called queues, and each time about the same text sounded. And always very polite.

The movement grew and grew, until finally, on one boorish call in Steve’s house did not receive about 5,000 callbacks from “Voices of Choice.”

Protect Life activists were forced to retreat, and reverted to the usual practice of protesting abortion without telephone threats towards Steve and other dirty tricks.
