Pro-life pioneers’ home damaged in middle-of-the-night pro-abort attack

CHICAGO, December 2, 2010 ( - The home of long-time pro-life leaders Joseph and Ann Scheidler was attacked in the middle of the night with bricks of asphalt being thrown through two front windows, reports Operation Rescue.

One of the bricks contained a threatening note from an obvious abortion supporter. The attack occurred around 2 am.

The note read: “We are crazy feminist bi***es who will destroy your sexist ideas.”

“P.S. I’ve had an abortion and no laws could ever stop me,” it continued. “You can’t make Queen Anne’s lace illegal, a******.”

Operation Rescue President Troy Newman denounced “in the strongest terms” the “cowardly violence that shattered the peace of the Scheidler home last night.”

Joseph and his wife Ann Scheidler are among the most respected pioneers of the pro-life movement, and have been active on behalf of the unborn for decades. Scheidler is the head of the Pro-Life Action League.

“We demand that that Attorney General Eric Holder order the Justice Department to launch an immediate investigation into this violent hate crime and to provide the same protections to Joseph and Ann Scheidler as they have in the past for unthreatened abortionists.”

There has been a recent increase in violence against peaceful pro-lifers. In September, 2009, activist Jim Pouillon was brutally murdered as he stood with a pro-life sign in front of a high school in Owosso, Michigan. Operation Rescue’s headquarters in Wichita, Kansas, has been repeatedly vandalized, and staff threatened in recent months. In Albuquerque, New Mexico, sidewalk counselors were threatened by a man at gunpoint and police later discovered a cache of weapons in the man’s vehicle.


I'm just wondering.

What exactly is that supposd to accomplish?

Aside from damaging the house, do these a**holes think that this is going to stop anyone?

Destroy sexist ideas? You can't destroy ideas. You can only make them less popular.

But polls have shown that the US is becoming more and more pro-life.

What a bunch of nutcases.
