San Francisco District Attorney Chesa Boudin announced Thursday the filing of a felony charge against Aaron Jonathan Hurley of Los Angeles for harassing a physician who provides health care services, including abortions, to women in the Bay Area.

Hurley is allegedly a leader of an anti-abortion group called Progressive Anti-Abortion Uprising. The charges stem from a series of incidents in which Hurley and others allegedly attacked the doctor with threatening behavior.

According to the District Attorney's Office, a woman purporting to need counseling arrived at the door of the family planning center. When the door was opened to admit her, Hurley and several others rushed into the clinic. They began filming, both staff and patients, and attempted to enter an operating room. Hurley was charged with harassment and several misdemeanors. An arrest warrant is pending for one of the other participants.
