Can I help you?

Do you have an appointment?

Doctor, there's somebody here who doesn't

have an appointment. It's a man.


Hi, can I help you?

- Dr. Anderson?


The path of the righteous

man is beset from all sides.

The inequities of the selfish,

the tyranny of evil.

OK, I'm gonna have

to ask you to leave.

But you... you will know

that I am the Lord

when I lay my vengeance

down upon you.

And this is the vengeance

of the Lord, say I.

Amazing grace,

how sweet the sound

that saved a wretch like me.

I once was lost,

but now am found.

Was blind,

but now I see.


Who is it?

Don't get it.

I gotta get it.

I gotta get it.

No, you don't!

No, you don't!

Yes, I do!

You don't.


Oh, morning, Sheriff.

Uh, I was... uh,

I was just leaving.

Oh, OK, yeah, I'll be right in.

OK, OK, bye.

All right.

The Sheriff says hi.


So have you, uh,

made any decisions yet?

Yeah, the state pulled out,

but I'm not leaving.


Why didn't you tell me?

They cut the funding?

All of it.



They're not driving me out.



Yeah, those women need you.

What'd the Sheriff want?

Uh, there's a storm coming.

He just wants to make

sure we're prepared.

Well, you better get a move on.

Oh, yeah?

Yeah, you're the only

one with a job now.

Oh, a sugar daddy.

Beat it, sugar.

Thou shall not kill the unborn!

Killer! Killer!

Don't touch that!

Get off the lawn.

Your judgment day is coming!


Thou shall not kill the unborn!

Killer! Killer!

Thou shall not kill the unborn!

- Abortion is murder!

Thou shall not kill the unborn!

Thou shall not kill the unborn!

Your wife is a killer!

Your wife is a killer!

You're a killer!

- Baby killer!

You're all killers! Murderers!

Murderers! Murderers!


Uh, yeah, it's fresh.

How's the storm doing?

It's a mean one.

It'll be on top of

us in a day or too.

You make a decision?

Angela wants to stay,

so we're gonna stay.

Is that so?

That's so.

Well, that's the wrong decision.


I don't think you appreciate the minds of

the people that you're dealing with here.

How many protesters did

you have on your front lawn

the other day?

Three or four?

Well, next week it's

going to be 30 or 40.

What are you gonna do then?

Abraham Baarker

is in jail for murder.

That's not a joke.

I know.

His victims were two doctors that worked at

clinics like the one that Angela works at.

Angela is not a doctor.

She's just counseling

these people, helping them.

Get out of my chair.

Come on, up.

The church and

the mining company

are in bed with the state.

You realize that, right?

How do you think

the funding got cut?

You and Angela

live out of wedlock,

flaunting your relationship

in front of everybody.

Angela hands out birth control

pills from your house.

How much longer do

you think these people

are gonna play nice?

Sheriff, it's a free country.

- Where?

- Here.

You don't know these people.

You don't know Angela.

You're an idiot if you think

that they're gonna let some...

nurse sass them.

Am I missing something here?

We're the law, not them.

You're not that stupid.

You can't win, Mac.

We're not leaving.

How long has it been there?

I noticed it a couple weeks ago.

And has it changed in

shape or size at all?


Joan, it's OK.

They've gone for the day.

Does it hurt?

Yeah, a little.

I really think you

need to see a doctor.



Because you need to go somewhere

where they can run the proper tests.

Well, aren't you a doctor?

I'm not a doctor, Joan.

I'm a counselor.

Well, I... I can't.
