Hi, this is my blog for all sorts of pro-life news, statistics, stories, and personal ventings. I am a wife and mother, as well as a nursing student. I I truly believe that abortion has failed women, and will continue to do so as long as it is legal.

Pro-lifers Responsible for VT Shootings?

File this one under "shameless"

From "abortionclinicdays"

As I read the paper and watch my TV, trying to take in the tragedy that has befallen the students, parents and faculty of Virginia Tech, I am feeling sick and in shock. I also feel a huge fear for my children. I know and am reminded that I cannot protect them anywhere.

Maybe I am a conspiracy theorist, but I cannot help but look at the history of this kind of violence and link it directly back to the anti abortion movement.

They were the very first people to speak so hatefully and announce with pride their thoughts of justifiable homicide. They were the first to post doctors' pictures on the Internet advocating killing, admitting who they were, yet there was NO PUBLIC CONDEMNATION. Even so called religious people often beat around the bush refusing to say it was wrong or in fact said nothing at all.
So the anti-abortion faction commited arson, firebombed us, shot us and then one of them got brave enough to go out in broad daylight and shoot at 2 clinics (3?) in Boston. And evade the authorities for how long? One of them blew up a clinic killing a police officer and almost killing but maiming the nurse and what happened? Nothing!

The White House under President Reagan and the first Pres. Bush entertained Joe Scheidler as a guest, and and others I no longer remember who were certainly themselves early terrorists or advocates of terrorism. And still no public outcry.
Finally, after the same bomber planted a bomb in Atlanta during the Summer Olympics, this got some attention.

When the school shootings started, Columbine and the rest, where did people think these kids learned their hate and their skills and the belief that is was ok to kill people. What did anyone with an ounce of sense think would happen to a generation of young people who saw others turn their heads from violence because it was aimed at a select few. And it was controversial after all.

Of course, after 911, Domestic Terrorism was suddenly in the news. But in print or on the news no one mentioned that abortion providers have been living with terrorism for a long time. They pretended it was new. When the members of congress first started getting envelopes with possible anthrax in them, abortion providers already had booklets that the ATF had printed for handling anthrax threats in our clinics. Many of us had gone through that kind of terrorism years earlier. Yesterday's actions may have been by someone who is mentally ill but where did the example, the idea come from?
We are all responsible for putting an end to hate. Just last week some people still thought it was a fuss about nothing when hate talk against women athletes was allowed to continue. Even when the shock jock was eventually fired, there were still a lot of people who thought it was funny. Unless people of leadership and faith announce the connection and call for an end we as a nation are going to see ever more violence.

When a crazy man can stand outside my friend's clinic today and still say these hateful things and call himself a minister, a man of God, why doesn't the public rush to run his ass out of town. If we want to see these shootings end it has to start there, with people like this minister, because they are the ones who started it all.

I am sorry if I am ranting especially because many of you have also lived with this or something equally frightening or painful but I just needed to write it for me. My rage and pain do not feel lessened but somehow I feel stronger.
Thank you for listening to me.

I don't even know how to respond to this. I deplore prolife violence. I see it as wrong. Period.

This article, however, is beyond absurd. To implicate an entire ideology because a handful of people committed a crime is ridiculous. Isn't this the exact same "close-minded" thinking that liberals accuse conservatives of perpetuating when speaking about Muslims?

It is laughable that a mad man's shooting is *DIRECTLY* linked to anti-abortion violence. This is disgraceful and disrespectful to the families of the victims of the Virginia Tech mass murder.

Tethering political mudslinging to tragedy is the epitome of self-serving gain. Shame on this author for sinking to such low a level.

  • Always keep in mind that there are many abortion rights supporters who simply have never met a "reasonable" pro-lifer -- and by "reasonable," I mean, approaching the pro-life cause in a truly Christian way, rather than slandering the people who disagree as "baby killing whores" or worse.

    If someone`s only exposure to the pro-life side is a "crazy man" who "can stand outside my friend`s clinic" and "say those hateful things and call himself a minister" -- then she`s obviously gotten a very incomplete view of what the pro-life side is all about, and I think I can understand why the emotional opinion she expressed in her post is so one-sided.

  • What do you suppose she means by "those hateful things"? Abortion is murder? Don't kill your baby? Jesus is the answer?

    Note that she didn't say what the guy outside the clinic is saying.

  • Wow, lauren, that was crazy....I can't believe someone would disrespect the VT people who were killed in this way, by turning it into a pro-life pro-choice argument!
