Pro-Life Activistís Home Vandalized by Abortion Backers
Life News ^ | 07-02-12

Posted on 07/03/2012 7:27:36 PM PDT by Coleus

Following an profile news story in Newsweek detailing their work in the pro-life movement, Personhood USA leaders Keith and Jennifer Mason, who is pregnant, saw their home become the victim of the violent vandalism attack.

In the middle of the night, a large rock was heaved through the double-paned glass of their front door, scattering glass throughout their living room and across the front porch, covering their children’s toys and items for the new baby. The pro-abortion criminals also spray-painted coat hangers and vulgarity in large letters on the front and sides of their house.

The Newsweek article profiled the Masons and their work as the leaders of the group Personhood USA, which is working to pass personhood amendments in states across the nation. The amendments would, until the Supreme Court is changed, act as statements of position by states certifying that human life begins at conception, or fertilization.

The profile was also featured on The Daily Beast and, in comments at the bottom of the post, the notoriously liberal audience took exception to the pro-life beliefs of the Masons, resulting in several physical threats posted in the comments beneath the article. After viewing these threats, one reader tracked down the Mason’s home address and posted it in the comment section. Mason indicates he thinks that was the genesis of the vandalism and attack on his home.

“The article does state that we have three small children, and that my wife is due to deliver our fourth child very soon,” he said. “It is shocking to consider that someone would be so cruel and heartless to attack a home with a pregnant woman and small children inside. Apparently, the pro-choice crowd has no more compassion for born children than they do for the preborn.”

A few days after the attack, dedicated pro-life volunteer Everett Stadig was assaulted while petitioning for Colorado’s personhood initiative and suffered several injuries, including a broken hip which required surgery.

“Our reaction is one of puzzlement. What kind of person would terrorize the home of a family with young, innocent children inside? We’re left wondering what these abortion fanatics hoped to accomplish,” continued Mason. “Not only are these hateful attacks uncalled for, but they have renewed our resolve to press forward. It is a great testimony that even as Everett recuperates in the hospital he is undeterred, even asking hospital staff and visitors for their signatures on his personhood petition. We are all following his example, pressing forward despite hardships, determined to continue to defend the lives of women and babies – all of whom deserve better than abortion.”

Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, denounced the violent attack and called upon organizations and leaders that support legal abortion to denounce this violence as well.

“Where are the voices of Planned Parenthood, NARAL Pro-Choice America, and other abortion advocacy groups when violence is perpetrated on pro-life people? These groups are heard loud and clear when violence is done to supporters of their philosophy. It would be nice to see some consistency here,” Fr. Pavone stated.

In May, a pro-abortion extremist pleaded guilty to threatening the life of Father Pavone and Princeton University scholar Robert George. Theodore Schulman faces up to four years in prison at his sentencing in September.

What I find disturbing is that these people are surprised. The pro-death crowd is vile, viscious, and evil. Period.

Thanks for posting. This will be ignored by the MSM. Too bad the Mason’s aren’t gay activists n this would be a front page story.

We have our little half shepard...all 40lbs of her. She still has the bark of a big one and a 40lbs dog moving 30mph can still take down a man. It just takes one word...and she is off. That word...Racoon.

Guess I’ll have to take Everett’s shift for him.

Expect a different outcome if they come my way....

Don't you understand, Mr. Mason? You and your lovely wife are 'breeders', according to the pro-abortion crowd.
