When the Pro-Life Fan Club Kills

I'm so pro-life I'll kill anyone who disagrees with me...

I’m so pro-life I’ll kill anyone who disagrees with me…

Let’s make one thing perfectly clear from the outset: abortion is one of the most divisive issues in the United States today and will be in the foreseeable future. It lines up two very potent forces against one another: those who believe that a woman has the right to decide what goes on in her own body, and those who believe that life begins at conception. Since Roe v. Wade, there has been a struggle in American society to either protect or overturn that ruling and the acts of the past week have only solidified the entrenched opposites in their quest to see total victory for their cause.

The pro-life (so called) side has relied on means both fair and foul to try and eradicate abortion in the United States.

A terrible act, but one to which he was no stranger: he had just been released, weeks prior, from an Israeli prison for doing the exact same thing at a Gay Pride march in 2005. During that attack he managed to wound three people; during last week’s he stabbed six one of whom, sixteen-year old Shira Banki, has died of her wounds.

To their credit, the Israeli government was swift to condemn the attack in no uncertain terms with both Prime Minister Netanyahu and President Rivlin speaking out on the basic rights for an individual in Israel to live in security however they wish to live their lives. Even the Anti-Defamation League in New York spoke out condemning the attack and praising the open and tolerant attitude expressed towards the LGBT community in Israel. Read the rest of this entry »
