    Default Reporter Laura Bassett: Nothing less pro-life than bombing health clinic

    http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2012/04/0...e+Raw+Story%29

    Laura Bassett, political reporter for The Huffington Post, said Monday that an attack on a Planned Parenthood clinic in Wisconsin on Sunday night was “absolutely” domestic terrorism.

    “These people are calling themselves pro-life, and I can’t think of anything less pro-life than putting a bomb outside of a health clinic,” she said on The Young Turks.

    Bassett also noted that Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum, who is currently campaigning in Wisconsin, condemned Planned Parenthood in a statement denouncing the attack.

    “Like with the Rush Limbaugh controversy, I think there are a lot more that conservatives, particularly pro-life conservatives, could be doing to calm their base down,” she said. “Unfortunately, they’re doing the opposite.”

    Police are still looking for whoever left the device, which exploded around 7:30 p.m. and caused little damage to the building. Nobody was injured.

    Another clinic in the Dallas area was attacked in a similar manner by a separate person last July

    I have never quite understood the logic behind "I am against abortion, so let's go kill some people!"

    Of course liberals never calm their own base down. Olbermann, Schultz, and Maher can call women "mashed up bag[s] of meat with lipstick," "right-wing slut," and "cunts," respectively, but Limbaugh can't, and liberals defend theirs while bashing Limbaugh (not that Limbaugh really should be calling women sluts, either).

    Either way, this is WRONG.

    Except maybe killing innocent and utterly defenseless children in their mothers wombs. No? Mmmkay lady.


    Doesn't sound like this homemade device was much of a "bomb". And @ 7:30pm on a Sunday night? Not exactly targeting to kill or maim anyone it seems as nobody was even around to be injured by the "device" much less killed.
    And after all, the abortion mill was indeed shut down for at least 2 days because of this, which was probably the intent of the attack.
    I wonder how many lives the attacker actually saved then, due to the expectant "mothers" who are now forced to reschedule - and given this extra time may actually reconsider the act of killing their own babies.

    I DO NOT condone bombing abortion mills, so don't even go there.


    "Health" clinic. Riiight.. That's Nazi speak for "baby killing facility", where mothers go to murder their own babies.



    "But I feel that the greatest destroyer of peace today is abortion, because it is a war against the child - a direct killing of the innocent child - murder by the mother herself. And if we accept that a mother can kill her own child, how can we tell other people not to kill one another?

    Any country that accepts abortion is not teaching the people to love, but to use any violence to get what they want. That is why the greatest destroyer of love and peace is abortion."

    - Mother Teresa, 1994

    I did not say that there weren't instances (rare as they are) where a procedure isn't justified.

    I don't know what happened in the case with your mother, Brett, so I can't comment on that.



    I think what the reporter woman said was absurd... "Nothing less pro-life than bombing an abortion clinic."
    Considering what goes on inside those clinics, mostly out of pure convenience. All the death that goes on in those places every day, and then she makes that comment about something that didn't hurt (and probably wasn't even intended to hurt) anyone.

    Consider this too..

    That clinic was shut down for 2 days because of this "device". How many abortions do these places perform in a day? 15 maybe? So because of the after-hours attack on this kill clinic then there are 30 innocent beating hearts in the world today that would have been otherwise snuffed out. 30 little innocent hearts beating RIGHT NOW that would have otherwise been destroyed.

    And of those 30 little hearts beating today then I'd venture to guess that at least 29 of them aren't putting their mothers lives in jeopardy, considering that greater than 97% of abortions in the US are done out of convenience.

    They're going to happen one way or another. Legal or not. But I'm in favor of the mother having to watch the procedure done before she actually goes through with it.

    But this guy... If he'll do this and I think it shows terrorist tendencies that would probably escalate.

    And nothing more "life-affirming" than killing an innocent baby. Oh I forgot, that's a choice.

    I think most people are who are against abortion are also against the bombing of abortion clinics. I'd like to think most of us on this side are against killing of human beings (hence against abortion) so to be for bombing a clinic (and killing human beings) kind of flies in the face of our stance.

    Actually, I think most Pro life people are for the death penalty. May have also been onboard with the wars. Which have resulted in a lot of killing.

    i think that's unlikely but i can't speak for all pro-lifers.

    From the ones I know (and I'm kind of one of them) we're not big on wars and would gladly exchange the death penalty for life in prison.

    "Sixty-four percent of Americans support the death penalty in cases of murder," says Frank Newport, editor-in-chief of the Gallup Poll.

    That's actually a little higher level of support than when George Gallup began asking Americans about their views of the death penalty back in the mid-1930s. Support is generally higher among Republicans surveyed, and among those who live in the South, he said, where 1,042 of the nation's 1,269 executions since 1976 have occurred. (Texas has overseen the most executions, 475 since 1976. Virginia has killed 109 death-row inmates.)
    Republicans in the US tend to Pro life while Democrats in the US are more likely to be Pro Choice.

    Support for the death penalty really shot up during the Reagan/Bush Sr years.
