sidewalk counselor
 n.— «For two years, on a strip of pavement outside 560 Southern Boulevard, near 149th Street, protesters and activists who call themselves sidewalk counselors have gathered four times a week—the days the clinic performs abortions—and have handed incoming patients fliers containing graphic pictures of aborted fetuses. Many are volunteers for Expectant Mother Care, a group that operates several centers citywide where women can receive pregnancy tests, counseling and ultrasound readings.» —“Protesting the Protesters” by Saki Knafo New York Times Dec. 14, 2008.
