When weighed against the millions of murdered unborn children, that list looks very small.
Meanwhile, we have endless examples of Muslim terrorists. Can we make blanket statements about the "hypocrisy" in the Muslim world? No. Will the media make endless pronouncements about the hypocrisy in the pro-life movement? You betcha.
Murder is wrong.......unless you are an innocent unborn (and now includes ‘newly’ born). But imagine what the abortionist wakes to ‘on the other side of eternity’. “There are no atheiests in hell”

Objectively speaking, these deaths as a result of anti-abortionists (not pro-lifers) is a drop in the bucket! Ironically, it speaks volumes to just how peaceful pro-life protests have been!
“I was told to antagonize the pro-lifers and I made the girls throw out any pro-life literature before entering the clinic. ... We would tell them, “Those people out there are terrorists, it’s safer in here. They’re crazy.” I even told one group, “That woman out there was just released from Meadowview Mental Hospital. Don’t talk to her; she killed her family.” ... As soon as I got here last August, I joined the “Freedom of Choice Action League.” They’re big at Pine and Market. Some of them practice witchcraft and sometimes they chalk pentagrams [a Satanic symbol] on the sidewalks. ... I had written about how they openly practice witchcraft and how the clinic director tells us, every time we beat up the pro-lifers, to cover their cameras. ... I wrote [in an editorial to the Wichita Eagle] that pro-abortionists displayed sex toys in front of children and how they dumped semen and urine on people at national rescues. I personally defaced churches, LIFE, Inc., and HopeNet. I apologize for that. ... They hate God, they’re anti-Christian ...
“Pro-abortionists are the terrorists, not the pro-lifers. They’re the ones throwing bricks through people’s windows and doing obscene things. I was shocked when I went to the Crypt to pray and they were screaming and yelling, shouting obscenities, while all the pro-lifers were praying silently.”
