Planned Parenthood Shooting ‘Appears’ To Be Domestic Terrorism According To Mayor
Colorado Springs Mayor John Suthers has said that the Planned Parenthood shooting on November 27th that left three dead “appears” to be an act of domestic terrorism.
Hmm. I dunno Mayor Suthers, I think it is EXACTLY domestic terrorism but I understand you are trying to be cautious with semantics because of…what reason exactly?
Police sources said that Robert Lewis Dear made rambling comments during his rampage some of which “suggested animosity toward the health care provider.”
President and CEO of the Rocky Mountains chapter of Planned Parenthood Vicki Cowart said of his motive:
“We’ve seen an alarming increase in hateful rhetoric and smear campaigns against abortion providers and patients over the last few months. That environment breeds acts of violence. Americans reject the hatred and vitriol that fueled this tragedy. We do not accept this environment as normal. We should not have to live in a world where accessing health care includes safe rooms and bullet proof glass.”
Late on Saturday, the Attorney General Loretta Lynch even called the shooting a “crime against women receiving healthcare services at Planned Parenthood.”
What more do we need to convince the public what this was? A clear act of domestic terrorism against the rights of women to receive full reproductive healthcare.
