Philip “Flip” Benham, the recently convicted stalker of an abortion provider, has made his way to Orlando. #

Behman and other protesters are currently holding a weeklong protest of abortion clinics in Orlando. Clinics in the area were given advance notice and a “who-to-watch-out-for” guide from an abortion rights group called Feminist Majority. #

On their list of people to watch: Benham. #

Benham was convicted of “stalking” an abortion provider in North Carolina, and is no longer allowed to even repeat the doctor’s name he was stalking due a lawsuit filed by the physician he targeted with posters. The posters reportedly read: “Wanted … By Christ, to Stop Killing Babies,” The American Independent reports. He was recently sentenced to 18 months of probation. #

An administrator at the EPOC Abortion Clinic in Orlando tells The Florida Independent the clinic is seeing an unusual amount of protesters outside their clinic. Clinic staffers are being told the hubbub should be over after this week, and that protests will “return to normal” levels once Benham leaves. #

The clinic and its employees are also receiving an increase in protections as a result. An EPOC employee has said that law enforcement ranging from FBI to local police are protecting patients and workers at the clinics. Protesters are also not allowed onto the clinic’s property. #

Ms. Magazine reported earlier: #

Organizers from the Feminist Majority Foundation (FMF), Ms.’s publisher, are working with the Orlando clinics, pro-choice supporters and local, state and federal law enforcement to protect the clinics during the siege. According to duVergne Gaines, legal coordinator of the FMF’s National Clinic Access Project, #

“Flip Benham and his associates are on notice –they can no longer stalk and terrorize women’s health care providers with impunity. We’ll continue to do everything we can to prevent their unlawful conduct, to protect women’s health care providers and to maintain access to safe, legal abortion in Orlando.” #

Feminist Majority has also warned the clinic to watch out for Keith Tucci, the former director of Operation Rescue. The clinic was told he was holding meetings in Florida to organize enough people to protest every abortion clinic in Orlando this week. #

An employee at EPOC says there are also also abortion rights activists and undercover police in front of the clinic, working to protect those entering. #

EPA administrator defends allowing Florida to write its own water pollution rules

The EPA seal (Pic via sentryjournal.com) The Environmental Protection Agency has come under fire for its decision to allow the state of Florida to write its own water pollution rules (known as “numeric nutrient criteria”). EPA Regional Administrator Gwendolyn Keyes Fleming is now firing back, writing that the Agency commends the state Department of Environmental Protection for its draft of a proposed standard. A host of environmental groups filed suit in 2008, seeking to compel the EPA to implement a strict set of water pollution standards in Florida, arguing that the state was in violation of the Clean Water Act.

EPA administrator fires back at critics in op-ed

EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson (Pic by USACEpublicaffairs, via Flickr) EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson penned a new op-ed for the Los Angeles Times , criticizing House Republicans desperately seeking to undermine the authority of the agency they have dubbed a “job killer.” Arguing that the environment affects red states and blue states alike, Jackson writes that “it is time for House Republicans to stop politicizing our air and water.” As head of the Environmental Protection Agency, Jackson has faced harsh criticism from House Republicans and GOP presidential candidates who say the agency’s regulations are an undue burden on businesses that have to cut jobs simply to comply with clean water and air rules. Presidential hopeful Michele Bachmann  has pledged to end the EPA if she takes office. “Since the beginning of this year, Republicans in the House have averaged roughly a vote every day the chamber has been in session to undermine the Environmental Protection Agency and our nation’s environmental laws,” writes Jackson.

EPA announces hold on nutrient standards if Florida can come up with own criteria

The EPA announced today that it is now prepared to withdraw a portion of its proposed numeric nutrient criteria (a set of standards governing water pollution in inland waters) and delay the portion related to estuarine waters, to allow the state Department of Environmental Protection to develop its own criteria. # From a statement released by the EPA earlier today: # EPA recognizes that states have the primary role in establishing and implementing water quality standards for their waters. Therefore, EPA is prepared to withdraw the federal inland standards and delay the estuarine standards if FDEP adopts, and EPA approves, their own protective and scientifically sound numeric standards
