The State

Police arrested 109 anti-abortion demonstrators for blocking the entrance to a Planned Parenthood clinic in Salinas, although officers said the protest was generally peaceful. Those arrested were taking part in one of a series of Operation Rescue demonstrations that have been staged in recent months throughout the country. Police Lt. Scott Miller said the demonstrators were charged with misdemeanor counts of trespassing and resisting officers. Some of those taken into custody were “uncooperative in the booking process,” Miller said. They refused to identify themselves, be photographed or fingerprinted. Miller said they will remain in jail.
