Operation Rescue and other anti-abortion groups have effectively denied women of their constitutional right to seek abortions. This article demonstrates that these groups have formed a national conspiracy aimed at eliminating the right to abortion. The author argues that a federal remedy is required to protect this right. The author disagrees with the Supreme Court's decision that 42 U.S.C. § 1985(3) cannot be used to prevent blockades of abortion clinics, and suggests that § 1985 was intended to protect against conspiracies like that of Operation Rescue.
