Abortion doc attacks pro-life activist:

Reader Steve sends a tip about this story in the OC Weekly covering an abortion doctor’s reported assault on a pro-life activist at a shady clinic. Steve writes: “[T]he Weekly’s a pretty liberal publication, but I think they deserve a bit of credit for outlining some of the shocking deficiencies of care that have been brought to light at several Los Angeles area family planning centers.”

The fact that throughout the nineties the anti-abortion crowd regularly blew up clinics, attacked doctors and were generally violent miscreants and could make any operating clinic a little anxious still. I’m betting the camera-wielding protester wasn’t as innocent as they claim either; I doubt a doctor would attack him simply for taking pictures. Slanderous attacks while taking pictures of your staff and customers, though? Yeah, I can see it.

Because given the history, that’s threatening behavior.

The fact that the people who created a very long, and very amusing, comment thread on the linked article exist simply frightens me. I don’t get how you can live your life thinking like this, and with any luck I never will.

Also, I have money on the number of emergency room visits related to falling down the stairs goes up proportionally to the number of abortions no longer being performed if they ever overturn Roe v. Wade. That and the Mexican economy will thank you for your tourism.
