Counter-Protest of the Day: Aaron Gouveia, whose wife was forced to abort after her fetus was diagnosed with a terminal congenital deformity, was harassed and accosted by anti-choice protesters outside a Brookline, MA abortion clinic.

In the spirit of standing up to bullies, Gouveia approached the sloganeers to see if they would be interested in hearing his side of the story.
