Pro-life terrorists: eight murders haven’t been enough

Pro-life terrorists in the US have already murdered eight people for working in clinics that perform abortions, and have attempted to murder 17 more. (cite) Now that the pro-life murderer of George Tiller has been convicted, pro-life terrorists and their supporters are working elsewhere to get more clinic staff killed:

A gynecologist who performs abortions in Tarrant County is the target of a vicious postcard campaign which lists his home and work addresses along with names of five of his staff members.

The postcard is printed in black-and-white and it is unsigned.

On the front is a picture of Dr. Michael S. Phillips next to the question: “Have you seen this person?”

When it’s flipped over, the postcard lists the doctor’s name, and three addresses — including his home.

It goes on to reveal names of five staff members.

When reached at his home, Dr. Phillips said he wouldn’t talk about it. “I’ve been dealing with it for 35 years, that’s all I can say.” (Texas, WFAA)

The card uses familiar pro-life hate rhetoric, calling the clinic staff named on the card “heart-stoppers” and promoting the usual pro-life lie that that the doctor and the clinic staff practice infanticide, claiming “They kill ’em cheap and stack ’em deep.”

Chuck Pelletier, apparently the clean face for the pro-lifer movement in Texas, claims that he has nothing to do with producing or passing out this card, but that everything on it is true. (He and his wife run the “Mother & Unborn Baby Care” crisis pregnancy center in Fort Worth: I have no idea what links this particular crisis pregnancy center may have to the coercive adoption industry, but “follow the money” is a good rule anywhere – and the adoption industry in the US is huge and has nothing to do with respecting women as mothers.)

It is, as always, ironic and worth noting that not only is the pro-life movement a terrorist anti-life movement… it is also deeply against provision of services which prevent abortions.

  1. How many murders is enough for the abortion industry? They’re at about 50 million and counting. OK, so a few abortionists have been shot. That’s like saying the Nazis murdered 6 million Jews, and the Jews murdered a handful of Nazis.

    • About 70,000 women die each year because they cannot get access to safe, legal abortion. Abortion can be safely and easily performed: the only access difficulties are thanks to the pro-lifers who believe and who act on their belief that women’s lives are of no value and women should be denied basic human rights.

      Pro-lifers are the ideological and actual descendents of the Nazis, racist, homophobic, indifferent to human life and against human rights.

      • A lot of people forget that it was the Nazis who banned abortion, at least for “Aryan” women. They (like their ideological descendant Pat Buchanan today — read The Death of the West) were terrified that their sacred and pure and lilywhite heritage would be drowned in a seething brown sea of otherness.
