Pro-Lifer Attacked with SUV, Alleged Attacker Charged

CHICO, CA, June 26, 2009 ( - James Canfield, a regular pro-life protester of a Planned Parenthood and Women's Health Center in Chico, California, was almost run down during a protest last Wednesday, according to the Chico Enterprise Record. His alleged attacker, Matthew Haver, was charged with assault with a deadly weapon.

Witnesses reported that a man driving an SUV attempted to strike Canfield, who dove out of the way and was not seriously injured. The license plate of the SUV was taken down and was traced back to Haver, who was then arrested.

According to Chico Police Lt. John Carrillo, Canfield was protesting outside of a Planned Parenthood facility with a large, graphic sign of an aborted baby. Haver drove by with a child with him, who asked what was on the sign. Haver then apparently became enraged at the sight of the sign, and attempted to run down Canfield.

You know, the fact that the feminists blame pro-lifers and call us responsible for George Tiller's death...

That's extremist, incendiary hate speech.

Now pro-abortion passers-by at abortion clinics will be out to get us, and the feminist hate speech will provide justification for these assaults.

I bet some commenters will say they don't agree with hitting Canfield, but deep down they're celebrating. They're happy that he was attacked.

See how easy it is to make baseless, unprovable assertions about causation and intentions?

I can just predict the rebuttals: but ours is true: you're just making yours up!

As if believing their rhetoric makes it any more true.
