Radical Pro-Abortion Crowd Intimidation Tactics

Last night I posted an invitation to a pro-life prayer event on my Facebook profile, and I was shocked at what I saw. This copy of a note I posted after the fact explains everything.

Pro-Abort Encourages More Pro-Aborts to Disrupt Pro-Life Prayer Meeting at Late Term Abortion Mill & Uses Term “Violence”
Yesterday at 11:28pm

Nice to have such lovely friends, thanks.
After I posted the following,
“9 AM – anyone in Dallas wanna go with me?Southwestern Women’s Surgery Center at the Northeast Corner of Greenville Avenue and Royal Lane.

WFAA Channel 8 recently did a story on the center and interviewed the 72 year old doctor, Dr. Curtis Boyd. Since 1973 his practice which started at the Fairmount Clinic has performed 300,000 abortions. Unlike his other clinic, the new location is a surgery center, which means Boyd and his staff are now able to offer late-term abortions for women in their second trimester up to six months or 24-weeks pregnant. He hopes to be able to perform 2000 of these late term abortions per year in Dallas. “Am I killing?” Boyd said. “Yes, I am. I know that.” Read the story here: http://tinyurl.com/Channel8Story

Please consider coming with us. It is so important that people arriving for these services see us outside. Maybe they will reconsider their decision and choose life. Because of the Catholic Pro Life Committee and other religious groups, there are only five abortion clinics left in Dallas when there used to be thirteen. Your presence and prayers do make a difference!!!

For more information, please call
Christina Smith 972-489-3125
Time:9:00AM Saturday, November 14th
Location:8616 Greenville Ave Dallas, Texas 75243″

This shows up in my news feed, to which I responded.

“John Lundin …anti-abortion protesters are planning demonstrations outside this clinic tomorrow, Saturday:

Time:9:00AM Saturday, November 14th Location: 8616 Greenville Ave Dallas, Texas 75243

Those of you are local (Dallas) and who support women’s reproductive rights might consider being present to help allay violence and protect those seeking services

Hey maybe some of your Dallas friends should take a visit there, I’m sure at least one of them is due for their reproductive health checkup. That is what Planned Parenthood is for right? Afterwards I may head over to the Sherlock’s for a drink after all that violence. Then over to study at law school to read up on the constitution and the first amendment right to peacably assemble. Thanks for ganking stuff from my profile to promote abortion. Class act!

Personally, I am saddened by the Legal Murder of Potential Einsteins…by the duping of their mothers, who have been told so often that their own child is “just a piece of tissue” that they have believed the lie and not the truth beneath their hearts..http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Vh1frrx_-wby the pain to be felt by those innocent babes as they have their bodies eviscerated ..http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s_W75zh1j2I. by the horrors of yesterday, today, and of tomorrows yet to come.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M4Dawr2suZ4…and by the travesty of life which allows a doctor to rip a viable infant from the womb, mortally wound him or her, and leave them in a closet to die..see: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4ubrw80RbEQ

Yeah, as if you know any of the people who are going. It’s a prayer meeting. It is really insane to take something like this from someone else’s page and then act like you think there is going to be violence. Are you even a friend of mine? No. John is, and I am certain he sees my posts in his feed often so he should know better than to accuse me of something like that. I will be putting this on my blog including all of your names. Feel free to friend me. Oh I am so scary… and all my little catholic girlfriends are also oh so threatening. Damn those Christians for praying to God to help these mothers. I bet you hate it knowing that women see people out there, talk to them, and decide not to kill their children all the time!

FYI this is a late term abortion mill that hopes to perform 2000 abortions on 24 week babies this year. The doctor who runs the clinic has killed 300,000 babies.

@Amy: As a Catholic, I struggle with this issue. First, I strongly feel that murder, no matter when, is wrong. However, I also know that Catholics believe that life begins at conception. However, not all religions or people believe the same as Catholics. So should Catholics export our religious views on the rest of America? Do we want all religions to export their religious views on the rest of us? For example, should Mormons be allowed to baptize all of us into the Mormon faith after we die? BTW, they already do this but what do I care. Should we all have to abide by the Wisconsin Synod of the Lutheran Church which calls the Pope the Anti-Christ? What I am trying to get across is this: Not everyone believes in the Catholic view of life some believe that life begins at birth in which case abortion would not be considered murder.

Why not mandate religion? God won’t know if someone truly doesn’t believe in their heart, right? I mean he would know, but wouldn’t we be better off anyway with everyone walking the walk, and talking the talk until eventually they see the light?

Could it be that as a society, the abortion issue is little more than a smokescreen to hide our dismal record of following Jesus’ teachings to practice Christian charity toward our fellow men and women, the poor and the sick among us?

Thank you John for getting the word out about this. I would absolutely be there to help protect the rights of women who need access to these critical services if I could. These women are just like me, and I respect whatever choice they make. I just wish efforts to reopen greater access to contraception and comprehensive sex education were working. It was a public health policy that clearly worked under the Clinton Administration, and we need to start having intelligent discussions about it again.

Unfortunately, the same lobbies who oppose abortion also tend to oppose birth control and education. It is categorically unjust for these groups to deny women control over their own bodies and sexuality. We did not fight so hard for equal rights to be told we are still second class citizens in the bedroom. It’s hard not to realize this debate is disingenuous when the same lobbies, who feel so strongly that “all life is sacred” they will oppose abortion at all costs (including violence), are somehow conversely pro-war and pro-death penalty. Nor can we ignore how their pro-family values stop at the womb. Once these fetuses become real people, they are denied access to education, health care, fair wages, a clean environment, and safe neighborhoods. It’s no coincidence that the South, which is last in women’s reproductive health, is also last in just about everything else.

These are not policies and values that put life first. These are policies and values vainly attempting to control women the only way they have left.

Amy take your praying somewhere else. Better yet go pray for yourself. John’s not promoting abortion as you said. He’ s support my right and every woman’s right to control her own body and make her own decisions. Not everybody believes your crazy catholic crap. Get off your soap box.

Joe – no, people should not force their religion on others. As humans we should not be allowed to kill other humans and we should be able to agree that innocent babies do not deserve to be murdered and that their mothers have no right to kill them.

P.S. – The group that arrived at the abortion mill stayed on the public sidewalk praying and talking, nobody trespassed, nobody was violent, and your pro-abort friends didn’t show up to “protect” anyone as far as I could tell. None of the mothers going in to have an abortion this morning stopped to talk to us, but if they had we would have offered them help.

The Gabriel Project in Dallas gives mothers a place to stay, money, and free OB care. There is a doc here that delivers these babies for free. Everything they need is provided for them. The sidewalk counselors have “saves” all the time and try to cover all the shifts of the abortion mills here in Dallas.

I am posting pictures and video so you can see what a peaceful event it was. As I said earlier on my page the only violence that took place was inside the mill.

Oh, and to the women who think all women are like them and all want their “rights” protected, I find it ironic that you are so worried about the shape of your body or your inconvenience, yet the innocent baby living inside of you has no rights not even to life.

BTW I don’t think Jesus said to pray in your closet, but if there is a verse in the Bible that I missed please feel free to quote it. Maybe you could walk into churches and tell them to stop praying also.

Thanks to my radical pro-abortion friend for trying to intimidate us. Maybe your friends can show up with your scalpels suction tubes and RU486, I guarantee you you will be more armed than I will. All I have is a cell phone for calling 911 and a set of keys. Thanks for the encouragement. You obviously don’t understand how people work… Now more of us will work harder, so good job.

Your statement that John Lundin “Encourages More Pro-Aborts to Disrupt Pro-Life” is a gross mis-statement of my posting. Just as you did, I am only suggesting a presence. I’m in no way characterizing your call for your friends to make their presence known as an incitement to violence, but I’m also sure I don’t have to tell you that violence has been an unintended consequence of anti-abortion actions at Planned Parenthood clinics in the past. As an ordained minister, I, too, pray for everyone at the clinic tomorrow.

You’re a minister and yet you insinuate that my friends and I will become violent. You are way out of line. You are the one inciting violence by encouraging random people to come there expecting it and try to make everyone angry. Whatever, your friends have a right to loiter around PP if they want to, and like I said perhaps some of them need the PP services.

I’m not an ordained minister at all but I do know right from wrong and I intend to exercise my human rights to try to help innocent, helpless babies from having their heads ripped off their bodies. Sleep well.

An ordained minister of what? Certainly not an advocate for Christ or his teachings. For any man or woman for that matter to proclaim to “Minister” and yet endorse a womans “Right” to destroy the life that God has created within her, is an abomination.

Now as for how the actual event went:

Today outside a Dallas abortion mill approximately two dozen volunteers prayed and stood waiting to assist mothers arriving to have abortions at the “Women’s Sugery Center,” a clinic run by a doctor who has killed 300,000 babies and hopes to perform 2,000 late term abortions this year. The Gabriel Project has trained peaceful volunteers ready to sidewalk counsel mothers who seek them out.

13342_174956239246_501119246_2857223_6275508_n

Contrary to the hateful comments and unfounded accusations which you saw above, these pro-lifers were nothing but peaceful. I arrived about 9 am and parked in the parking lot outside the surgery center. I saw one woman walking out in her pajamas carrying a chucks pad and then a person in a BMW came and picked her up. You could tell she had been there for an abortion, and based on the description I gave the sidewalk counselor she believed it to be a late term abortion.

Once I met my friends on the sidewalk (this was my first time at an event like this) a woman walked up and introduced herself as a sidewalk counselor and told us some of the rules. At first I thought she was from the abortion clinic and there to harass us, then I realized she was our friend. The rules that I became aware of were as follows:

  • Only stay on the sidewalk and do not let your feet pass the rough area painted black on the sidewalk which delineates the property line of the clinic.
  • Do not wave down traffic or talk to people in the driveway.
  • Do not park in the parking lot of the clinic or you could be towed and get a citation. (I had to go move my car.)
  • You can talk to mothers who come to the sidewalk to talk to you but you cannot interfere with their entering the clinic.

Sounds like a pretty peaceful set of rules to me.

We stood in one spot for about half an hour going through a mass and reciting The Lord’s Prayer and Hail Marys. Since I am not Catholic I had to listen to memorize the words to the Hail Marys. I decided to tape and take photos.

Video of event

After a while my friend and I walked down to talk to the sidewalk counselor, and there were a couple of other clusters of people praying on the sidewalk along the premises. We talked to her for a long time and learned about what sidewalk counselors do and how they help these mothers.

After a while I left but the sidewalk counselor stayed and a few more people showed up. I admire their dedication and the fact that this woman has volunteered most days per week for at least a decade, maybe longer.

I did learn that the doctor who runs the clinic came outside recently to harass someone (whom he observed through his surveillance cameras) who stepped into the driveway to give a passerby directions after the driver pulled over and asked. She was told if you ever do that again I will have the police out here immediately. The next day there were 9 squad cars in 3 hours according to the sidewalk counselor.

The Gabriel Project chooses not to use photos of aborted babies but they do have models of babies at different stages of development. They also arrange for mothers to get a place to stay, money and free OB care from a local Pro-Life doctor. The counselor said basically everything that they need…
