Oh my god.
I'd like to help pay for protective detail.

FTFA:Abortion opponents have vowed to keep it closed. Already, they have filed complaints with the city accusing Ms. Burkhart of renovating the clinic without proper permits. They have collected around 14,000 signatures in opposition to her plan. They have asked Wichita officials to change zoning rules to prohibit the clinic from operating in its current location. They have prayed.

I bet these people prayed for Obama to not get re-elected. I'm sure they are prayed for someone other then Mitt in the primaries. How is that whole prayer thing working out for you?

either:
A) the prayers they do nothing
B) God hates you

"In reality, I'd like them to be closed forever and ever, amen," said David Gittrich, the development director forKansans for Life, later adding, "We don't want to be known as a community where you go to get your babies killed."

You'd prefer to be known as a community where doctors are killed for providing legal, often life-saving medical procedures.

Yeah, pretty much that.

"Oh we don't want people to think that we allow globs of snot to die here!  We would much rather people think that we execute medical professionals.  That's a lot better!"

Less than a month before Christians firebomb it.

Remember if it's Muslims doing the killing it's "terrorism" but if it's Christians doing the killing it's "patriotism".

Aren't late term abortions only legal in cases were the mother's life is in danger in the US?

This clinic will not be performing any abortions for women who are more than 14 weeks pregnant.

I know, I was thinking of Tiller. Preventing late term abortions puts more lives in danger assuming it's a matter of the mother's life. I guess the anti-choice crowd see it as a 2 for 1 special for god

Keep on fighting the good fight.

So-called Pro Life groups are ignorant zealots who leave a path of death and unnecessary misery in their wake.

Good. Those farking Christian anti-choice anti-American dickwads can die in fires. They are the worst human beings I have ever witnessed. Yes I've paid for an abortion, and yes, I've had those farkheads scream at me and my girl when we did nothing more than go to a goddamned doctor's office in Birmingham, Alabama.

At least I consider myself lucky. Those assholes firebombed the place a few weeks later.
 
2013-02-17 11:54:49 PM
hey guess what assholes? I paid to have my kid aborted nearly 20 years ago, and that's the best damn money I ever spent! A+++ would do again

I live in Wichita and I've lived here most of my life. I remember the "Summer of Mercy" in '92 and I remember Dr. Tiller being shot in the mid-nineties and I remember Dr. Tiller being assassinated in his church in 2009.

The reopening of this clinic is good news for those of us who would hated to have seen the Christian terrorists win.

I guarantee you that if another doctor who provides abortions in Wichita is murdered, the aftermath will play out very differently than it did in 2009. We were shocked in 2009. This time, we will be prepared.
 
2013-02-18 12:12:51 AM
Good and good luck to them. These anti-women assholes would have preferred to see several of my friends die over terminating their pregnancies. Some were ectopic and some were late term, but all were wanted. That these anti-women assholes could even think that this is some kind of easy choice should make them eligible for a punch the crotch.

I don't think this is a 'liberal' or 'conservative' issue. It's about Jesus freaks who mostly constitute the protesting and shooting crowd. Like it or not, abortion is a right decreed by the highest authority in the land. That most of them are [Tea]publicans is just how it is.

we really need to step up the pro-abortion protesting.
might be good exercise too.

drive over to a clinic
take a TON of photos of the nice protesters
go walk with them and get their names and put trackers on their cars
follow them home and protest some more ...
first amendment right?

god I hate these people more than bush and cheney

resorting to Scientology like tactics seems ass backwards.

If they are violent or move beyond the means afforded to them by the 1st amendment then public shamming is all good. Upload that to Youtube and get them exposed for it.

If you have proof of their hypocrisy exposure is fine

Shamming will not work with zealots since they believe in their cause, you will just make them a leaving martyr

No, you see it's been decreed by the c man that FARK is not an appropriate place for these discussions; FARK is only suitable for snarky comments. Any discussion (particularly those of a political nature,) should it involve a liberal expressing a point of view, is only allowed to occur at Kos.

That Troy Newman fellow who's using the "Operation Rescue" name, and who's quoted in the article is quite the character. He's got ties to the Army of God domestic terrorist group, and his version of Operation Rescue broke away from the original organization because they disagreed with the original group condemning the use of force. Oh yeah, and he had at least a certain level of association with Scott Roeder, which you'd think the NY Times would have mentioned what with this being a story about reopening Tiller's clinic and all.

Actually, I've seen him post basically the same cut and paste over the last 24 hours. He really does seem to be deliberately derailing conversations. I had to put him on ignore earlier today for that reason, even though he had, up until then, been on my "favorite conservatives" list.
