ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - A driver rammed his SUV into the front door of an abortion clinic on Thursday, the anniversary of the Supreme Court's Roe v. Wade decision, police said. No one was injured. A 32-year-old man was arrested and taken to Ramsey County jail on suspicion of aggravated assault, police spokesman Peter Panos said.

A SUV and a overt attack on Planned Parenthood?

Thats a gift to liberal everywhere they can only get from the more zealous among the Right to Life crowd.

Pardon me if I respect the feeling, but stated bluntly this was incredibly stupid, short sighted, and typical of a zealot.

The damage done to the Right to Life movement is far far outweighed by the damange to Planned Parenthood’s front door, in short.

If we are to believe the stupid title, they should have arrested the SUV, not the man.

I don’t care if it was a 30 degree incline, there was a six foot curb, 27 steps to the front door, and a 47 mile headwind.

“The brakes failed”, works for me.

The problem is, this kind of stuff never works in favor of addressing the issue.

It always comes off as a terrorist attacking a building, especially these days.

Imagine if an atheist or Planned Parenthood employee rammed an SUV into a Christian Church.

What do you want to bet the Obama “Reichstag Fire” will happen at an abortion factory? This will be the excuse for going after orthodox Catholics and, in fact, all Christians who are faithful enough to oppose abortion and thereby present a threat to The One.

How do you rate this as an assault? It’s destruction of private property, but assault is a tough call. Perhaps the one person inside was hurt.

Well if thats the case then "Unintentional Acceleration Syndrome" caused the accident.

The SUV is obviously a member of some fringe, extremest right-wing, Auto Club and acted on its own.

So what is it when they suck a baby's brains out of his or her little head while in the birth canal?

Chuck, The SUV didn’t harm anyone. It is inside the clinic that the real death takes place.

A moral atrocity.

However, and stop me if you've ever heard this one, but . . . two wrongs don't make a right.

We should have prayer meetings outside the abortion clinics, not this. This just makes up look like muslims.

Exactly, prayers, education and speaking to women who are contemplating abortion are much more effective approaches.

What this guy did is not different than a Muslim who rams an SUV into a synagogue.

>>This is just not good....I agree. Do a prayer meeting.<<

We have for 12 years now -- 3 times a week at our local killing center -- and VERY few Christians show up.

Seems they're too busy to be a witness for the love and mercy of Christ.

So I guess Israel should just have let Hamas fire rockets at their people, because 2 wrongs don't make a right. And I guess America should have kept her troops at home after 9/11, and stayed out of Afghanistan & Iraq, because 2 wrongs don't make a right.

Fact is, as every right thinking conservative knows, Israel had absolutely no choice but to fight Hamas, because they couldn't sit idly by while their people were killed & in fear for their lives.

The world is a bit more complicated than the 2 wrongs saw.

Who said those actions were wrong? Israel and the United States had the legal right to protect their territory.

This yahoo and his SUV did not have the legal right to assault this facility.

I think if you were the one about to be slaughtered (without pain killers I might add), you'd feel differently.

Don't get me wrong. I'm not defending the practice of abortion.

But just because someone disagrees with a legal practice, that does not give them the right to become a terrorist and threaten the lives and/or livlihoods of law-abiding citizens.

I hope and pray that women choose not to have abortions. But I also hope and pray that this s.o.b. is prosecuted the fullest extent of the law.

sorry I misinterpreted what you meant.

this increases the degree to which abortion is seen as extremely controversial.

in Britain, there is no backlash against abortion, and as a result it’s considered a perfectly ordinary procedure. in some cases, like contraception

abortion has become more & more socially unacceptable in America, which is great

This is like BDS. most people disagree with it, but it gives them the impression that something really important is going on

I agree that personal witness is a much better approach though.

What if the US &/or Israel didn't have the "legal" right? What if there was some "international law" against it?

What is wrong is not necessarily what is illegal, and what is legal is not necessarily what is right.

If you were about to end up like this poor, little baby, I think you'd want someone to drive a semi thru the killing center doors to save you.

Even if that were the case, does his moral opposition give him the right to terrorize?

After all, isn't it that the argument of radical Islam?

No one is applauding this guy’s actions as Christian. Some guy snapped over the daily slaughter of babies. If that doesn’t lead some people to snap, what would?

(a) the guy clearly snapped. no one is saying it’s a fine thing to do. but I think people have some understanding of why he snapped.

(b) Islam attacks to gain territory. if it were not itself killing people, the world would be no threat to it. Islam has attacked to gain territory for 1400 years. Now is no different.

The killing of babies who have absolutely no ability to defend themselves is a moral issue infinitely beyond the mushlims desire to increase their power & territory. The guy here snapped, and I think a lot of people understand why.

No, they just vandalize and attempt to destroy the churches. Just look at the gay mafia's actions in California recently for that.
