Planned Parenthood, which delivers reproductive health care and sex education to women and men across the United States, came under attack by a man with an assault rifle on November 27, 2015.

Three individuals were killed in the shooting: University of Colorado Colorado Springs police officer Garrett Swasey, 44, who responded to the shooting; Ke'Arre M. Stewart, 29, who ran back to the clinic to warn others after being shot; and Jennifer Markovsky, 35, who was accompanying a friend to the clinic. Nine other victims, comprising five police officers and four civilians, were shot and admitted to local area hospitals. The gun-man eventually surrendered more than five hours after the first shots were fired.

The attack comes after three additional attacks on Planned Parenthood clinics in 2015 (two cases of arson and one vandalism) and in the context of ongoing anti-abortion violence in the United States against both individuals and organisations ranging from vandalism and threats to arson, bombings and murder since the 1980s.
