"Those who do not remember history are doomed to repeat its failures."

July of 1992

"Summer of Purpose"

Public works crews constructed hundreds of feet of fence down the middle of Bennington Ave. and on a privately owned vacant lot next door to the Delta Women's Clinic to separate pro-lifers from the clinic and its pro-abortion forces.


Bennington Avenue will be closed "until further notice," city-parish officials said. DPW crews installed a 6-foot-tall chain link fence around a vacant lot adjacent to the clinic on Bennington Avenue and installed a similar fence down the middle of Bennington Avenue near the clinic.


The work was done to prepare for Operation Rescue's "Summer of Purpose”protests in Baton Rouge. Delta was considered the primary target of the pro-life group Operation Rescue In Baton Rouge.

Police try to break up protesters from both sides of the abortion issue as a pre-dawn clash erupts when protesters try to establish lines in front of the clinic.
