Fighting Against Homegrown Terrorism

On Monday, just a few days after the attack on Planned Parenthood in Colorado Springs, another Planned Parenthood clinic reopened in New Hampshire. The clinic had been closed for nearly six weeks after a hatchet attack by a juvenile. According to the 1994 Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances (FACE) Act, it's a federal crime to interfere, injure, or intimidate anyone who seeks to access reproductive healthcare, but the FBI has seen an uptick in crime associated with women's health clinics since 2009. Michael German, a former FBI special agent and a fellow at the Brennan Center, explains how federal officials work with clinics and law enforcement to assess threats and prevent attacks.
