Anti-Abortion Extremist Barred from Stalking Clinic Head
In a ruling Thursday (5-16), Oregon Judge Thomas L. Moultrie barred anti-abortion activist Paul deParrie from having any contact with Jude Hanzo, executive director of All Women's Health Services. DeParrie's concealed weapon permit was also revoked. Hanzo has said deParrie, a prominent advocate of anti-abortion violence, harassed her for over a year, calling her at home and sending her letters, circulating flyers with her picture, and organizing two protests outside her home. If deParrie violates the order, he will face charges. In his ruling, Judge Moultrie used a 1995 Oregon anti-stalking law aimed to protect citizens from alarming or unwanted contacts.
