Anti-abortion activists found guilty after blocking a clinic in New York

Three abortion opponents were found guilty of barring women from entering a Westchester County clinic in November, prosecutors said.

Matthew Connelly, 40, William Goodman, 52, and Christopher Moscinski, 52, were found guilty Thursday after a three-day trial of illegally entering All Women’s Medical in White Plains and refusing to leave it for two hours, the prosecutors said.

The three men, who belonged to the Red Rose Rescue religious group, had to be “physically carried out of the office” after ignoring warnings from medical staff and local police to leave the office, District Attorney Mimi Rocah said in a news release .

One of the men was lying on the floor blocking the entrance to the office while the other two refused to leave the waiting room, according to the press release. All three were “physically carried out of the office,” Rocah said.

“The district attorney’s office will vigorously pursue any criminal activity that interferes with an individual’s constitutional right to freely access health care,” Rocah said in a statement. “There are no insignificant cases when it comes to protecting reproductive rights.”
