This is Albin Rhomberg. He’s a regular protestor at Planned Parenthood health centers in Sacramento and at our State Capitol.
Unfortunately I didn’t get a really good video of him. Once I turned off my phone, he continued to follow me for an entire city block, barely 3 feet away, filming and shouting at me about my evil work with Planned Parenthood. Albin has been filming our events for years. He’s passionately against abortion, which is his right.
This isn’t the first time I’ve been accosted by Albin – he’s yelled at me inside my own church and he’s followed me out to my car in a parking lot and filmed my license plate as I was driving away. I’m lucky. I only have to deal with him once or twice a year.
But Albin is a reminder to me of the harassment and bullying that women and reproductive health care providers are subjected to. Every. Single. Day.
If you think that women should be able to access health care free from harassers like Albin, please consider donating to your local Planned Parenthood or another non-profit reproductive health clinic in your area. Thank you.
P.S. I want to say a big THANK YOU to the Sacramento Police Department whose bike officer followed Albin as he was following me. The officer made a special point of letting me know that I wasn’t alone. For that I am grateful.
