I see no benefit to the pro-life cause screaming and harassing like banshees.
Actually, I agree with you. It is counter-productive. Screaming and harrassing like banshees just makes pro-life people look like fanatics and gives good prime time video to the MSM. It also alienates people and/or candidates who might be vearing pro-life.
There are smarter ways to achieve pro-life objectives.

“There are smarter ways to achieve pro-life objectives.”
All this does is bring out the pro-abortion zealots.

I agree with both of you. Perhaps some signs at several stops encouraging Rudy to become pro-life. That both encourages Rudy to beocme pro-life (probably never going to happen) AND reinforces the message that he isn't.
But shouting those kinds of comments at him everywhere in Florida he goes, make us look like a bunch of harassing, stalking nuts. It is very bad for the pro-life image and totally ineffective way of promoting the pro-life message and increasing the pro-life ranks.
We have to worry not only about the MSM but the fact that television programs and movies write this stuff into their scripts, making us look like irrational, crazy people. This does nothing to stop abortion and only helps to maintain them.
