On Thursday, January 16, 1997 an abortion clinic in Atlanta Georgia was bombed. Six people were injured. Militant, right-wing anti-choicers were behind it. On Monday, January 20, 1997 in Tuscon, Arizona, another abortion clinic was bombed in a similar manner. Fortunately, nobody was injured as the clinic was closed for the day. These are just two examples of the attacks against our right to choose or not choose abortion, and those who provide these services. Luckily, these attacks, unlike so many others, did not result in death.
I just don't get their way of dealing with abortion and anything that goes against their beliefs. If anyone can explain it to me, please do... I really do want to be able to understand.
Do they think that by using a murderous approach to opposing abortion that they are really going to acheive anything? It doesn't gain them supporters, and it doesn't gain them respect amongst the majority of the world. What it does do, however, is make their opposition more intent on keeping the services open, and protecting their rights and their clients rights, as well as trying to provide physical protection. This violence only points to their hypocracy. What I don't get is this - it's not ok to remove blood and tissue from the uterus of a woman that has the potential, but is not yet, to become life, but it is ok to kill real live adult human beings simply because they assist in the above-mentioned procedure, or believe that it should be legal? Something about that just doesn't make sense..
