Bush to Anti-Abortion Terrorists: “Go For It!”

A recent post at Think Progress notes that the Bush Department of Justice failed to enforce laws designed to keep anti-abortion protesters from obstructing work at health clinics.

Between 2000 and 2008, the National Abortion Federation recorded 3,291 acts of violence against abortion providers and “at least 17 cases of ‘extreme’ violence against abortion providers in the United States, such as arson, stabbing and bomb attacks.” However, the Bush Administration’s Department of Justice “prosecuted only 11 individuals for any acts of violence against abortion clinics or providers.”

So, big shocker that hard-line pseudo-Christian wackos would think that vigilante “justice” might be justified. The Bushies didn’t bother changing Roe v. Wade (even though they had full control of the House, the Senate, the White House and the Supreme Court for a while there), but they did tell the confused far-right militant activist weirdos to go ahead and have a free-for-all on women’s protected rights.

Dear Representative Perriello,

As a proud long-time resident of Virginia’s 5th District and one who loudly backed your campaign and cheered your victory last November, I am somewhat disheartened by your new television ad campaign. While the ad itself is upbeat and admirable, I couldn’t help but notice it was paid for by the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA) and the Healthcare Leadership Council (HLC).

Are we to gather from this that your health care-related legislative decisions will be made for you by one of the more questionable (and, unfortunately, powerful) lobbying concerns in the U.S.? Is it safe to assume that you would never sponsor a single payer health care option for the American taxpayer? If this is the case, then in the future I will certainly consider a candidate who will put the people’s needs before campaign contributions. Continue reading

There are all kinds of right-wing knuckle-draggers I can’t for the life of me fathom, but the anti-choice crowd is definitely the lowest. What the fuck is wrong with these people? Claiming that Jesus declared life begins at conception (he didn’t), they humiliate women making very hard choices, harass doctors performing desperately needed services, legislate clinics almost out of existence, and occasionally, assassinate a person many consider a hero.
