Homeland Security improperly assessed abortion groups in Wisconsin
Catholic World News - February 10, 2010
The Department of Homeland Security has admitted that it improperly gathered intelligence on pro-life and pro-abortion groups in Wisconsin before a February 6, 2009 rally, even though the groups posed no threat to national security. On that day, the board of the Madison Surgery Center voted to allow second-trimester abortions to be performed at the facility.
While the Department of Homeland Security has reportedly destroyed its copy of the report, the local police department has retained its copy and refused to release it. “It's very disturbing that a local police department has tapped into the security apparatus of the federal government to potentially obstruct free speech,” said Peggy Hamill, director of Pro-Life Wisconsin. “It's additionally disconcerting they will not release the documents in order for we the public to examine them.”
