The Pro-Abortion Movementís Best Kept Secret
The American TFP ^ | 6/19/09 | Michael Whitcraft

Posted on 06/20/2009 10:03:46 AM PDT by wagglebee

In the wake of George Tiller’s killing, many pundits and pro-abortionists have tried to project the shadow of his assassination onto the entire pro-life movement.

A June 2 Associated Press (AP) article titled: “Suspect in doctor killing railed against abortion” exemplifies the attempt. Although the AP professes to be an unbiased news source, the only pro-lifers interviewed expressed support for Tiller’s slaying and a substantial part of the story outlined the increased security measures abortion mills will now assume.

Although every mainstream pro-life organization issued immediate condemnations of the killing, the article lacked a single quote from any of these statements. The only recognition of the pro-life movement’s rejection of the killing was a paragraph that stated:

Police said it appears the gunman acted alone, and some anti-abortion groups quickly distanced themselves from the killing. Outside Tiller's clinic, the Kansas Coalition for Life placed signs saying members had prayed for Tiller's change of heart, "not his murder."[1] 
Britain’s liberal newspaper The Guardian was even more biased. A June 5 story titled: “On the front line in the US abortion war,” is not an objective representation of the struggle against abortion, as the title suggests, but an interview with and character sketch of Georgian extremist Neal Horsley who justifies violence against abortionists and even honors the perpetrators of such violence, dubbing them: “soldiers in the war against terror.”

Worse yet, rather than admit that Horsley does not represent the pro-life movement, author Chris McGreal shockingly affirmed:
Horsley has been at the forefront of an unrelenting campaign against abortion that straddles the blurry line between the mainstream movement characterising itself as "pro-life" and men like Scott Roeder who has been charged with Tiller's murder.[2]
Meanwhile, the feminist pro-abortion group National Organization for Women (NOW) decried the killing as “the most recent in a string of murders in the service of the anti-abortion cause,” and called upon the US Departments of Justice and Homeland Security to “root out and prosecute as domestic terrorists and violent racketeers the criminal enterprise that has organized and funded criminal acts for decades.” They urged the government to put “the full resources of their two departments behind that effort.”[3]

National Abortion Federation (NAF) president Vicki Saporta went so far as to dub the last thirty years a “reign of terror” against abortionists.[4]

Similarly, late-term abortionist LeRoy Carhart called on the government to define as hate crimes all efforts of “anti-choice domestic terrorists” and likened planting crosses in the yards of abortion-performing doctors to actions of the KKK.

Warren Hern, another late-term abortionist from Colorado, told London’s Guardian that pro-lifers constitute:

a national terrorist, totalitarian, fascist movement that is violent, well organised and well armed and they do not accept the basic premises of American society. Everything they've done for the last 35 years is designed to animate, to inspire, to give encouragement to anti-abortion assassins and anti-abortion violence.[5]
Indeed, the pro-abortion movement and leftist media are intent on equating the vast majority of peaceful and legal pro-lifers with savage terrorists. As conservative columnist Michelle Maklin aptly described it: “When a right-wing Christian vigilante kills, millions of fingers pull the trigger.”[6]

However, is this demonizing justified? Are pro-lifers really the violent people they are being made out to be? And what about pro-abortion violence, does it exist?

Skewed Statistics
Skewed Statistics and Misrepresentations

To track pro-lifers’ “offenses,” pro-abortion groups tally acts of “violence and disruptive actions” the former allegedly perpetrate in the United States and Canada. The NAF publishes a table of the data they accumulate.[7]

At first glance the numbers are impressive, indeed. According to the chart, the total disruptions and acts of violence since 1973 is a full 156,961. However, a closer look reveals that 141,837 of these incidents are peaceful picketing of abortion mills, 13,995 are “hate mail” or “harassing” telephone calls – which certainly include many peaceful and legal actions –, 1,993 are trespassing violations and 1,400 are generically termed “vandalism.”

The section of the NAF chart on violence is even more misleading. Under this heading it lists trespassing violations, vandalism, invasion, threats and butyric acid attacks. The latter may look violent at first glance. However, butyric acid is a harmless but foul-smelling liquid. Thus, the frightful sounding “butyric acid attacks” amount to nothing more than the use of stink bombs. Admittedly this costs money to clean up, but to classify it as “violence” is simply dishonest.

Furthermore, a 1995 Life Research Institute study investigated all available claims of pro-life violence and uncovered major inconsistencies. The study is titled: Abortion-Related Violence and Alleged Violence and is readily available online.[8]

It shows that many claims made by NAF and other groups are simply not substantiated nor is any evidence provided. Readers are expected to accept many incidents without proof.

Furthermore, an investigation of the more detailed “offenses” reveals major flaws. For instance, pro-lifers are assumed as the culprits of any act committed against an abortionist or even near an abortion mill.

Other examples include:

The 1993 murder of abortion doctor Wayne Patterson is categorized misleadingly as a murder that forced the closing of two abortion facilities. The truth is that Wayne Patterson was robbed and killed by an unknown assailant while leaving a pornographic movie theater. What his killing has to do with the pro-life movement is not explained.[9]

On October 21, the Feminist Women’s Health Center in Redding California burnt down. The event and was designated a pro-life arson, despite police reports that identified an electric fan as the cause of the blaze.[10]

In June of 1990, the Minnesota director of Planned Parenthood was supposedly assaulted, although he escaped the event without a scratch. His assailant, who certainly attacked other clinic employees, was an escapee from a mental institution. It was proven in court that he had no links to any pro-life organization.[11]

Those Who Live in Glass Houses…

In addition to greatly exaggerating (and even inventing) incidents of pro-life violence, the pro-abortion movement is deathly silent about the violence from within its ranks against pro-lifers.

In fact, the vast majority of active pro-lifers have endured acts of pro-abortionist violence. A common example is abortion mill workers who try to run over pro-lifers demonstrating in front of clinics.[12] Dr. Tiller, himself, ran over a pro-lifer and rammed a policeman on a motorcycle in a 1989 incident at his Wichita clinic.[13]
Human Life International's logo

Pro-life organization Human Life International (HLI) has documented cases of pro-abortion violence for years. Their research is published online at: http://abortionviolence.com/ and on a blog titled: Tree in the Sea (see: http://tree-in-the-sea.blogspot.com/2008/05/pro-abortion-violence.html). The latter has a list that is over 100 pages long and contains more than 2,000 cases.

For example:

Seven-year-old Ekaternia Engelke was kneeling in prayer at a Wisconsin abortion mill when leftist Catherine Doyle approached and screamed profanities at the little girl. When the latter replied: “You are killing babies!” the former kicked little Ekaterina in the face, injuring her. Afterwards, a hotline for Doyle’s pro-abortion group, Milwaukee Clinic Protection Coalition, instructed fellow pro-abortion activists to “brush up on their football skills.”

Despite numerous witnesses, charges were never brought against Doyle. Incidentally, her sister was Wisconsin Attorney General at the time of the attack.[14]

Worse yet, in Los Angeles, three pro-abortionists were arrested in 1989 for trying to burn down a church, packed with pro-lifers. Police also found concussion grenades underneath a speaker’s platform that was set up for a rally scheduled later in the day. There were 2,500 pro-lifers at the event.[15]

Senator Tommy Burks
In Tennessee, Byron Looper, pro-abortion candidate for the state senate, shot his pro-life opponent Senator Tommy Burks in the face, killing him. Afterwards, he bragged about the murder to his friend Joe Bond, saying: “I did it, man, I did it! I killed that dude.”[16]

Last, activist Eileen Orstein Janezic shot pro-life talk show host Jerry Simon at his home. She proceeded to hold the police at bay for six hours, while she recited quotations from Antoin LeVey’s Satanic Bible.[17]

These four events are merely the tip of the iceberg. There are literally thousands of documented cases of pro-abortion violence.[18] In fact, these substantiated incidents greatly outweigh the alleged acts committed by pro-lifers.

Denunciations and Silence

Furthermore, when an abortion opponent commits a violent crime, all mainstream pro-life organizations instantly condemn the act and reaffirm their commitment to engage only in peaceful activities.

Thus, when George Tiller was killed, immediately an ocean of rejection flooded from the pro-life community. Human Life International President, Father Thomas Euteneuer affirmed that Tiller’s killer “proved that he was no better than Tiller.”[19]

Likewise, American Life League executive director, Katie Walker, stated that Tiller’s killing defied the principles of the pro-life movement.[20] Pro-Life Action League President Joe Scheidler affirmed: “We deplore the killing of George Tiller on Sunday morning.” He also stated that his policy is to try and convert abortionists, not kill them.[21]

Tony Perkins, Family Research Council president, decried the murder saying: “We strongly condemn the actions taken today by this vigilante killer.”[22] Doctor James Dobson of Focus on the Family declared: “We are shocked by the murder of George Tiller, and we categorically condemn the act of vigilantism and violence that took his life.”[23]

Last, an Operation Rescue press release condemned the attack saying: “We denounce vigilantism and the cowardly act that took place this morning.”[24] (To read the American TFP denunciation of the murder of George Tiller, click here.) The list goes on and on.

However, when a pro-abortionist commits violent crime, abortion groups react at best with deafening silence.

When 69 year-old Ed Snell was counseling women entering Hillcrest Abortion Clinic in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania from atop his car, the boyfriend of a potential “client” became angry and threw him to the pavement below.[25]

Ed Snell talking with a TFP reporter.

The force of the fall was such that Mr. Snell was knocked unconscious. After being rushed to the hospital, doctors found he had two broken ribs, four fractured vertebrae, a cracked scapula and bleeding in the tissue between his skull and brain. Until they were able to stop this bleeding, doctors feared he would die.

Nevertheless, when the author called Hillcrest Abortion Clinic for a statement on the assault, a receptionist shouted: “He got what he deserved! He earned what he got!” then hung up the phone.

Additionally, the author’s research did not uncover a single condemnation of the attack from pro-abortion organizations. This research included searching the web sites of: NARAL, Center for Reproductive Rights, National Organization for Women (NOW), Catholics for a Free Choice, National Abortion Federation (NAF), Feminist Majority Foundation and Planned Parenthood.

Furthermore, the author checked the same web sites for a condemnation of the murders committed by Byron Looper and Eileen Orstein Janezic mentioned above. Not finding the slightest reference to either, he proceeded to write to each of these groups.

NAF responded immediately that, due to the “volume of inquiries” they receive, they are unable to answer questions. NOW sent him a membership form and neither NARAL, Center for Reproductive Rights nor Feminist Majority Foundation returned his email.

Shockingly, Catholics for a Free Choice and Planned Parenthood wrote back stating they had no knowledge of the murders and asked for more details. Catholics for a Free Choice never responded after receiving more information and Planned Parenthood Media Relations Specialist, Elizabeth Clark admitted: “I’ve had a couple of people in the National office check for statements, but there’s nothing in our records. It doesn’t look like we commented on these incidents.”[26]

The Emperor Has No Clothes

Despite everything, the media continue their biased emphasis on anti-abortion violence while underreporting the violent acts committed by abortionists. It is time for this to stop.

It is time for pro-lifers to raise their voices and point out that violence is the inevitable inheritance of those who favor the killing of mankind’s most innocent and defenseless. This message should be repeated at every chance, in all their publications and republished until the message sticks.

Only then will America view the issue without the blinders crafted by media intent on promoting a cause rather than reporting news. With the help of Divine Providence and a clear outlook this nation can overturn Roe v. Wade and once again defend the right to life of its most vulnerable citizens.

One of the MOST important reasons that I took a strong prolife stance, early on, was the “slippery slope” argument that when we allow the taking of a life, without any protection at all for the one put to death, that this would open the door for more killing of more people.

Respect for life has been under attack by the left.

It is hypocritical for the left to whine about respect for the “law” when they have actively worked to destroy morality itself.

No, I do not support shooting abortionists.

However, I do not condemn those who disagree with me, on that matter.

I am prochoice on the subject of shooting serial child killers.

How does that work for you?

I just think it is wrong for me to impose MY morality on anyone else.

Liberals and the media are now engaging, more than ever before, in absolute lies and distortions against conservatives.

We are witnessing the early stages of an attempt to criminalize political thoughts and ideas.

Liberals are calling conservatives dangerous....if you read the comments section to any liberal newspaper, you will see a movement starting to coalesce around this concept.

The DHS report starts to make this official US policy.....a policy that is finding widespread support.

“The only difference between an abortionist and a serial child killer is the age of their victims.”

Not exactly the case

The REAL difference is that one is a State-sactioned, professionally trained, murder for hire and the other is just a clever amateur. Age is just a dividing line.

The REAL difference is that one is a State-sactioned, State-funded, professionally trained, murder for hire that turns a enormous profit and the other is just a clever amateur. Age is just a dividing line.

And that difference makes me sick to my stomach.

Unfortunately, the number is closer to 52 million+ and this DOES NOT include the RU-486 carnage, nor does it include the number of mothers who have died as the result of botched abortions.

If one can kill a helpless infant, it’s not a far-cry to kicking a defenseless 7 year old in the face.

Hopefully that little girl may be more dedicated than ever to fight the absolute evil of the left. The pro-abortion liberals are no different from Nazis and should not be given a lick of quarter.

One of the things I find interesting about Tiller is the complete lack of mention in the press of the estimated $300 million he grossed while performing abortions (60,000 at $5K each). I can only guess at his net income, but I think it is safe to say that Tiller became a multi-millionaire by murdering viable babies. Of course, he had to share some of his income with various Democrat politicians by buying protection, er donations.

Just disgusting....

Tiller did become VERY WEALTHY, but did not make anywhere near $300 million. He did between 250 and 300 late-term abortions each year at ~$5K each, the rest were regular abortions which are not as expensive, plus he had overhead (office, staff, including other abortionists, etc.). He was personally earning around $1 million a year, which is still a sickening amount of money for a mass murderer.

One evil leads to another.

Who is more likely to be violent, those who respect and honor all human life, or those who believe it is a good thing to kill innocent babies?

Who is more likely to LIE about what is happening, those who honor the truth, or those who argue in behalf of political ideology and personal convenience?

The facts certainly support such a reasonable supposition. Evil is more violent than good. Evil is unscrupulous and never hesitates to lie or obfuscate. But of course the press is about 97% pro-abortion, so they simply suppress the facts and distort the language. Pro-life becomes anti-abortion (two ugly words). Pro-abortion becomes a woman’s right to choose.

the feminist pro-abortion group National Organization for Women (NOW) . . . called upon the US Departments of Justice and Homeland Security to “root out and prosecute as domestic terrorists and violent racketeers the criminal enterprise that has organized and funded criminal acts for decades.” They urged the government to put “the full resources of their two departments behind that effort.”[3]

The Democrat Party? That's not going to happen, no matter how much NOW insists on it.

I The only difference between an abortionist and a serial child killer is the age of their victims.

That's also how I see it.

I know I am out of the pro-life mainstream on this issue, but I look at it this way. If 3 month old babies were being murdered in a facility that claims to be a woman's health clinic anyone would be morally and legally justified in intervening, and intervening with potentially deadly force if necessary. A person who used deadly force to stop a paid professional hit man from killing a handicapped 3 month old baby would be applauded by the media and the public, and rightly so. The fact that the children who are being murdered in those "clinics" are not yet born may alter the legal status of their murderers as long as Roe v Wade is the law of the land, but it doesn't change their status as murderers in the moral realm.

I won't shoot abortionists or bomb abortuaries to stop their deadly work because it's legally impermissible, and we are commanded by God to obey the law even if we disagree with it on moral grounds. But I can't keep from sympathizing to some degree with those who do commit those acts to save the lives of the countless babies that the abortionist will murder in his/her normal lifetime. My main criticism of secular pro-lifers who use deadly force against baby killers is that their illegal acts always set back the painfully slow progress that is being made in changing the attitude of American voters regarding the abortion issue.

God could have stopped the murderous persecution of early Christians in Rome, and he could stop the murderous activities of abortionists in America today. But for reasons known only to Him He often allows persecution of the innocent to continue. And if I obey His scriptural command to obey even unGodlly rulers I can only work within legal parameters to end the legalized murder of the unborn and partially born humans who currently have no legal standing in US law to protect them.
