Merle Hoffman, the woman whom Forbes dubbed the “Millionaire Abortionist,” told a federal court in New York that “women know what abortion is” when she testified on February 15, 2018 against a group of pro-life Christian sidewalk counselors. The life advocates, ten of whom are members of Church @ The Rock in Brooklyn, have been slapped with a federal harassment lawsuit by New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman. The charges have been brought against these peaceful witnesses for life for offering abortion-bound women information on life-affirming alternatives. The sidewalk counselors are represented by the Thomas More Society, whose legal defense of them is rooted in their constitutionally guaranteed rights. The trial in People v. Griepp et al, which started on February 12, 2018, resumed on February 21, 2018.
