However, I have seen huge sacrifices in time, money, career retaliation, legal expenses, political damage etc due to this man.
Our Constitution was supposed to give us “Federalism” where the National government respected the States, through the 10th Amendment.
Abortion law ignores the wisdom of our founders.
When the national government acts as a tyrant, the tools of the national government will meet a tyrants death.
This was wrong.
It was also predictable.
There seem to be few alternatives left for us. Some feel desperate, painted into a corner. To THEM, this will be like the attempted assassination of Hitler.
But there ARE alternatives, as weak as they seem, and hopeless as it seems sometimes, and I feel bad for the person who snapped and took this action. However, NO reading of the Declaration of Independence, followed by a reading of the Constitution, could lead one to believe that our Founders were wrong on one important point: Civil Society will break down, and people WILL take back their "government" BY FORCE, if the government no longer respects the will of the people. I think that this was premature. I think, as far as the prolife cause is concerned, this WILL do more harm than good, at least in the short term. However, again, such actions were understood and predicted by our Founders, no less, when they FORMED this country.
A friend of mine has done the right thing. She has picketed at abortion clinics, one of which is literally across from her Catholic church. She encourages adoption and has actually saved about a dozen babies from being murdered by talking to the mother and convincing her not to kill her baby.
Not true at all. The Leftists have lost the abortion debate.
