1. I'd like to recap the violent fatality score for the last 30 years:
"Pro-choicers" >40 million
2. A handful of heterosexuals commits fatal hate crimes against homosexuals, does this mean George Carlin is dangerous to homosexuals?
A handful of abortion-opposers have gone apenuts and wrongly thought that the solution was to kill people who make a career of killing children. They looped and they were wrong. Truth be told, a number of the perpetrators weren't even "pro-lifers" but were angry men whose girlfriends/wives had aborted their children.
3. In the book ProLife Ansers to ProChoice Arguments, Randly Alcorn reminds us that historically, the civil rights movement has been more violent than the anti-abortion movement, yet everyone understands that a few nutlettes don't illegitimize the entire civil rights effort.
4. Randy also points out that no matter what anti-abortion protesters are doing outside abortion facilities it doesn't change the fact that abortion-supporters are killing countless children inside.
If you don't have the book you must get yourself a copy. There's a whole section on the "prolifers are violent" charge.
Here are some of the talking points:
*Media coverage of prolife civil disobedience often bears little resemblance to what actually happens.
*Prolife civil disobedience should not be condemned without understanding the reasons behind it.
*Peaceful civil disobedience is consistent with the belief that the unborn are human beings.
*Prolife protests have been remarkably nonviolent, and even when there has been violence, it has often been committed by clinic employees and escorts.
*Abortion clinic bombing and violnece are rare, and are neither done nor endorsed by prolife organizations.
Examples and citations are given for each.
Just for fun, you have to read the reviews for Alcorn's book on Amazon. There are a few little "anti-choicers are anti-feminist" nuggets that I just cherish for the giggles.
