The violence of abortion is often defended with violent tactics
There should be no surprise that those who are fighting for the “right” to kill pre-born children, tend toward violence themselves.
Christian’s who engage in defending their pre-born neighbors from slaughter and speaking up for babies, either in-person at abortion facilities or through online outreach to actively aborting women, are often on the receiving end of threats and/or actual physical violence.
Men and women who stand up for babies on the street are often asked by well-meaning Christians if it is safe to go out there and minister. The resounding answer from Christians who regularly minister the Gospel of Jesus Christ to women at abortion facilities around the country is: NO.
When you are confronting murder in the act of being carried out, it will never be safe. That’s why the strong need to stand up for the weak.
Examples from the field:
Report from sidewalk counselor “K” after ministry outside of a Fort Collins abortion facility:
“Take a good look at this woman. THIS is the face of ‘choice.’ She assaulted us, stole our signs, maced us, then proceeded to pull a steel baseball bat out of her sweatpants and swing it viciously at us.
“Throughout the whole ordeal, we asked her to give the sign back, pleaded with her to stop, and told her these were crimes she was committing. She laughed at us, cursed at us, threatened us, and mocked the dead baby on the sign she had ironically chosen to steal.
“These still shots were taken from a 3-minute video of her pre-meditated, violent tirade. The Fort Collins Police were called, took many witness statements, and are actively looking for this woman. She is a criminal and will be charged. Several saints had been praying quietly nearby when this occurred.
“When this woman, full of rage, started swinging at me and the rest of us with her steel bat, there was a brave man [who had come simply to serve as security for the saints] and another male family member who stepped forward INTO DANGER to block her swings. They did not hesitate to protect me and others, even to their own hurt. They didn’t touch this woman or assault her, but they were ready to stand up and defend the innocent when it was necessary—at a moment’s notice.”
Christians who go to this nation’s abortion facilities to plead for the lives of their pre-born neighbors often face violent opposition from women who are willing to fight for their “right” to kill, should the opportunity arise. Women volunteer their time to harass, intimidate, and sometimes assault, Christians speaking up for babies. These women WANT abortion and are willing to fight tooth and nail for it.
