ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — The head of Orlando’s Planned Parenthood operations says she was targeted for a protest last weekend as she was taking a neighborhood stroll with her husband and 3-year-old son.

Jenna Tosh says about 30 protesters picketed in front of her home and around her neighborhood carrying anti-abortion signs. She says the protesters positioned themselves between the Toshes and their home as they were coming back from a walk in their neighborhood.

Tosh says the tactic is not new. Other Planned Parenthood leaders have faced similar protests at their homes and neighborhoods.

Tosh is the sister-in-law of comedian Daniel Tosh, who has a television show on Comedy Central.
