Our page of the week is celebrating Louisville's clinic escort team Persephone's Pin Pounders, bowling for Kentucky Support Network. When anti-choice protesters began calling one of these escorts "Persephone, Queen of Hell," this team didn't back down. Now they're nominated "because they've taken all the anti-choice trash talk they put up with daily when escorting outside our local clinic, and embraced it to create their bowling team! Their page is even complete with punny pics, and a lovely rendering of one team member as Persephone, Queen of Hell herself! Talk about turning negativity into positivity, eh? Our clinic escorts are MAGIC."
