As a student, New York Times reporter urged classmates to assault pro-lifers

A pro-life student group at SUNY-Buffalo set up a “cemetery of the innocents” — 4,000 wooden crosses symbolizing the number of unborn children aborted in one day.

Pro-choicers stormed the exhibit and kicked the crosses down.

Michelle Goldberg, then a writer for a campus paper, urged readers to “do your part and spit at [the pro-lifers]. Kick them in the head.”

Goldberg now writes for the New York Times.

Feminist activist urges violence

Pro-abortion activist Meredith Talusan writes:

“We must take to the streets not merely to chant and make ourselves feel better, but to risk and anticipate confrontation.

We should not be afraid to throw a brick if a brick needs to be thrown. There are times when a single instance of violence is a justifiable response to pervasive and encompassing oppression by the state.”

Pro-Choice activists harass pro-lifers

Shawn Carney wrote that after 40 days for Life got favorable coverage on TV, pro-choice activists in Santa Cruz began harassing the pro-lifers:

“Volunteers were spat upon and had water bottles thrown at them and signs ripped out of their hands. One day a young woman drove by the vigil site, honked her horn to get the volunteers’ attention, and then began a profanity laced tirade. She lifted an expressive finger through her sunroof. As she drove off, the 40 Days for Life volunteers couldn’t help but notice the bumper sticker on her car: “Tolerance.”

Pro-choicers harass 40 Days for Life participants

Shortly after the local news in Santa Cruz covered the city’s 40 Days for Life campaign, pro-choicers came out in force to harass the demonstrators:

“For the next week, several [pro-choice] protesters showed up in the afternoons wearing ghoul costumes and shouting at prayer volunteers. Throughout the vigil, volunteers were spat upon and had water bottles thrown at them and signs ripped out of their hands.”

Pro-life demonstrator recalls being pelted with eggs

Randy Alcorn wrote about what happened when he was demonstrating with some pro-lifers at an abortion facility:

“At the last [rescue] clinic personnel poured water on us from above. A few girls kept circling the block in their car, pulling over to scream obscenities at us. They shouted incredible accusations, like, “The only reason you want to save these children is so you can rape them.” When their voices got hoarse and they ran out of dirty words (which took a long time), they came back with a carton of eggs and pelted us.”

Planned Parenthood escorts “step on” pro-lifers

An article talked about the way clinic escorts at Planned Parenthood of Greater Iowa dehumanize pro-life sidewalk counselors:

“It tells the escorts to tape the name of a pro-lifer to the bottom of their shoes and then sing to themselves “Every step you take, every move you make, I’ll be squishing you.” Susan Gellinger of Planned Parenthood says that “This is a very empowering yet non-confrontational thing to do. You know you’ll be symbolically stepping on that person all day.”

Pro-Abortion blogger threatens to shoot pro-lifers

From one pro-abortion blogger:

“March for Life, today, outside my building.

Too bad I forgot my Glock 19 at home…

The other option was to simulate a pregnancy and have Joe do a home-made abortion by punching me in the stomach mid-march, although, i get the feeling that would either result in him being arrested or stoned to death.”

Pro-Abortion feminist screams at pro-lifer

In a book by a pro-choice author, pro-life activist Fred Niles says:

“During a pro-life vigil outside Parliament House, I was attacked by hard–faced, pro–abortion feminists. One of these angry feminists even tried to scratch my face and screamed at me, “There is nothing in an abortion, I’ve had seven.”

Police kick pro-life protester unconscious, break another’s jaw

The The Indianapolis Star has an article about police violence against Operation Rescue demonstrators:

“Indianapolis police hope to handle the situation [of the Operation Rescue demonstrators] with more finesse than Atlanta police used in their city, where over 400 demonstrators were arrested this week and nearly 800 were arrested in earlier protests.

Bob Fierer, an Atlanta attorney representing Operation Rescue, said police brutality lawsuits will be filed in Atlanta, where he said police broke the jaw of an Indiana minister, Doyle Clark, and kicked another man unconscious. An Atlanta police captain denied the charges. He said police “have to use whatever pressure is necessary and condoned by the Atlanta Police Bureau” to get demonstrators into police wagons.”

Male pro-abortion “feminist” curses at female pro-lifer

Lauren Metz, 18, was participating in a counter-protest at a pro-choice march. She describes the way she and other pro-lifers were treated.

“As we were screamed at, called names, spit on, sexually harassed, and censored by the covering of our signs, the fact that the march was for complete and total abortion freedom was indisputable. A male feminist…called me a piece of s*** and worse. He got within an inch or so of my face, continuing his harassment, exclaiming that he did not want to talk to me, only to harass me.”
