Planned Parenthood shooting suspect to make first court appearance

Abortionists and Planned Parenthood Shooter Are Just Two Sides Of The Same Coin.

COLORADO SPRINGS – Planned Parenthood clinics across the nation opened Monday with leaders vowing to provide care for women – “no matter what” – three days after three people died in a shooting rampage here. It’s been just a few days since a shooter killed three people and wounded nine others at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado Springs, and Republicans have already resumed their baseless accusations against the group.

In the days after a shooting at a Colorado Springs Planned Parenthood on Friday left three people dead and nine injured, details are starting to emerge about the victims. Carly Fiorina has determinedly promulgated the claim, first advanced by the Center for Medical Progress in its deceptively edited videos, that Planned Parenthood sells “body parts” from fetuses. Robert Lewis Dear, 57, Is accused of shooting a university police officer who tried to stop the attack, and an Iraq war veteran and a mother of two who were accompanying separate friends to the clinic.

Neighbors who live near Dear’s former South Carolina home say he hid food in the woods and lived by selling prints of his uncle’s paintings of Southern plantations and the Masters golf tournament. But roughly 100 church members — who resembled a family more than a parish — came to celebrate the man who taught them about service, and honor the sacrifice he made. “For Garrett, it was all or nothing,” said fellow pastor Kurt Aichele. A law enforcement official said Dear told authorities “no more baby parts” after being arrested, part of a rambling statement that investigators were parsing to understand the reasoning. However, he added, “there were many tapes that are appropriate” and “there are people that are extremely upset about it.” Whether he thought this explained the actions of the suspected shooter, Robert L.

Presumably, a number of unborn babies lost their precious lives in the building that day as well, but they will never be named and no memorials will ever be held for them. Dear, a South Carolina native who appears to have moved to Colorado last year, was taken into custody at the clinic after an hours-long standoff with police and jailed ahead of a Monday court appearance. The left has predictably turned this outrageous assault on police and civilians into an opportunity to indict Christians, white people, and pro-lifers, despite the fact that religion, race, and politics have nothing to do with this.

Attorney John Walsh said investigators have been in touch with lawyers from the Justice Department’s Civil Rights and National Security divisions, a move that suggests officials could pursue federal charges in addition to state homicide ones. In a statement, Vicki Cowart, chief executive of Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains, said, “This is an appalling act of violence targeting access to health care and terrorizing skilled and dedicated health care professionals.” The shooting was believed to be the first deadly attack at an abortion provider in the United States in six years. Marc Pino told the Associated Press. “You don’t realize how much you love someone until you can’t tell them anymore,” co-pastor Scott Dontanville, who preached yesterday, said, reported NBC News. Barbara Boxer asked Speaker Paul Ryan on Saturday to disband the committee tasked with that investigation, known as the Select Investigative Panel on Infant Lives.

Enough is enough.” Leyonte Chandler told NBC News that Stewart, Chandler’s brother, had stepped outside the clinic to make a phone call when he was shot. But Marsha Blackburn, the committee’s chair, accused Representative Boxer of “playing politics with this tragedy.” The accusation is ironic — ever since the videos were released, Representative Blackburn, Mrs.

One possible avenue could be the 1994 Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances Act, which makes it a crime to injure or intimidate clinic patients and employees. “The case may fit the criteria for a federal domestic terrorism case, but based on my experience, I would be very surprised if this is not simply a local prosecution,” said Colorado Springs Mayor John Suthers, a former U.S. attorney and state attorney general. “Murder charges will be more than adequate on the local level.” Whatever authorities decide is sure to be controversial, given the political murkiness of Dear’s statements and the debate over Planned Parenthood, which was reignited in July when anti-abortion activists released undercover video they said showed the group’s personnel negotiating the sale of fetal organs. Planned Parenthood was criticized this year after officials of the organization were secretly recorded by an anti-abortion group discussing how to obtain human tissue from aborted fetuses.

Chandler said Stewart ran back inside to help those trapped inside. “I believe that’s his military instinct, you know: Leave no soldier behind, leave no civilian behind, just leave no one behind,” Chandler said. “And before his time ran out I guess that was his main priority … to help and save other lives.” Swasey, a police officer, had responded to a call that a gunman had swept into the building. The videos triggered protests and have become an issue in the 2016 presidential election race, as conservatives in Congress seek to cut off Planned Parenthood’s federal funding.

He’s textbook nut, through and through, with the traditional crazed facial expression and shack in the wilderness and everything else to go along with it. There have also been 17 attempted murders, 42 bombings and 186 arsons and thousands of other incidents, including vandalism, according to the foundation, a trade group for abortion providers. Between deep chuckles, Swasey used his career in law enforcement to help parishioners understand the importance of being attentive in how they serve God and each other. It seems, then, the reason police haven’t, as of this writing, released comprehensive details about his motivation is that his motivations are psychotic and jumbled.

Still, that has not prevented abortion enthusiasts on the left from gleefully spiking the football as if some point has been proven by the random violent outburst of a paranoid hermit. As they explained, I should “feel guilty” and be “held accountable” for “inciting” violence by vocally opposing Planned Parenthood’s practice of crushing the skulls of human children (never mind the logistical question of how a kook who lived in the forest without electricity could be incited by bloggers on the internet). Rachel Swasey released a statement thanking the community for its support during “this very difficult time.” “While the nation now knows Garrett as a hero who gave his life for others, he was also a devoted husband of 17 years and a wonderful father to his two children,” her statement read. “His greatest joys were his family, his church and his profession. Naturally, Planned Parenthood itself didn’t hold off until the bodies were cold before it placed the blame at the feet of pro-life “extremists.” Bernie Sanders and the governor of Colorado and many other Democrats and abortion worshiping liberals likewise explained how “rhetoric” from conservatives and Republicans prompted these events. We will cherish his memory, especially those times he spent tossing the football to his son and snuggling with his daughter on the couch.” The statement adds: “In the end, his last act was for the safety and well-being of others and was a tribute to his life.

Huffington Post, in one of the most staggeringly manipulative pieces of propaganda-disguised-as-news I’ve ever seen, announced the “return of anti-abortion terror,” and accompanied that headline with an unrelated picture of a Westboro Baptist buffoon from seven years ago. I have noticed among progressives very little actual concern for the heroic law enforcement officer who lost his life in the line of duty, or for the slain civilians. Others relayed information from surveillance cameras and victims in hiding. “We’ve got a report of a victim texting from just east of the lobby,” someone said. In the small town of Hartsel, Colorado, about 60 miles west of Colorado Springs, about a dozen police vehicles and fire trucks were parked on Saturday outside a small white trailer belonging to Dear located on a sprawling swath of land.

Swasey had planned to watch the Patriots’ Sunday matchup against the Broncos with his son, who would have inevitably rooted for the Broncos, Aichele said. Zigmond Post, who lives near the RV where Dear lived, said he didn’t have many interactions with Dear but he said the suspect once gave him a pamphlet opposing President Barack Obama.

Jamie Heffelman, owner of the Highline Cafe in Hartsel, said residents would occasionally see the 6-foot-4-inch, 250-pound Dear at the post office to get his mail but he never said much. I’ve never heard even the most radical pro-lifer (a very small demographic) suggest, propose, encourage, or applaud the murder of cops and civilians. He said that Dear rarely talked to them, and when he did, he tended to offer unsolicited advice such as recommending that Hood put a metal roof on his house so the U.S. government couldn’t spy on him.

Russell and others said the only companion they saw with him was a mangy dog that looked to be in such bad shape they called animal control because they worried he was beating it. If we truly care about this — if we’re going to offer up our thoughts and prayers again, for God knows how many times, with a truly clean conscience — then we have to do something about the easy accessibility of weapons of war on our streets to people who have no business wielding them.

To put that in perspective, Planned Parenthood has butchered 100 times more babies in a day than alleged “anti-abortion activists” have murdered in over 14,000 days. If there existed any statistically significant minority of violent pro-lifers; if murder was viewed as at all acceptable by any portion of the pro-life population; if “anti-abortion terrorism” was an actual problem, there’d be a lot more than eight dead abortionists to show for it over the last four decades.

As it stands, George Tiller, the heinous late-term baby executioner who ruthlessly slaughtered thousands of viable and fully developed infants, is the only abortion worker to be killed by an abortion opponent this century. In light of that fact, it’s clear that abortion workers can go to their jobs and kill babies and make money and walk around in public, and they still have a better chance of getting struck by lightening twice while being devoured by a swarm of piranhas than getting murdered by a “pro-life extremist.” Half the country sees them as serial killers of children, yet they remain basically safe and secure. Pro-aborts should be singing praises to our commitment to peace — a commitment that remains in tact even in the face of their brutality and carnage — rather than waiting eagerly for the once-in-a-decade occurrence of supposed “anti-abortion violence.” The whole routine is beyond ludicrous.

Many liberals, including abortionist cartels like the National Abortion Federation, have demanded that pro-lifers change or “tone down” their rhetoric in response to this evil act. Planned Parenthood abortionists and executives spent all weekend tearfully complaining about the mean old pro-lifers who are supposedly so “hateful” and “angry” and “inflammatory” all the time. Even Ben Carson agreed that “hateful rhetoric” on “both sides” has “exacerbated the situation.” A colossally stupid thing for anyone to say, especially a pro-life Republican, considering “pro-life rhetoric” fundamentally consists of promoting the sanctity of life and passionately opposing the destruction of innocent life.

Let me get this straight: someone murdered because we said people shouldn’t murder, so now we should stop criticizing people who murder so that people won’t murder? These statements are true and necessary, and the last thing I would ever do is “tone them down” or take a break from saying them just because some innocent people were murdered at one of their establishments. Innocent people are murdered at their establishments EVERY DAY, and that’s EXACTLY WHY I say them and will continue to say them as loudly and clearly as I can.

Yes, I do want to be inflammatory and provocative when I discuss it because my intention is to inflame and provoke a passion for protecting innocent life. Those who feel it must pray to be healed of it, but I simply cannot abide these abortionist acting shocked and offended that other human beings may feel a profound animosity towards them because they regularly massacre precious children.

Yes, we should always be sure to hate the sin and not the sinner, but when the sin is this abominable, the sinner simply has no place to lecture us about our feelings. Speaking of rhetoric, if anyone needs to change it or “tone it down,” it’s probably the side whose rhetoric explicitly justifies the extermination of human beings. We cry out against the murderer who uses a rifle in the lobby for the same reason we cry out against the murderer who uses a scalpel and a suction tube down the hallway in room three. As pro-lifers, we affirm that Officer Garrett Swasey’s life was meaningful and purposeful and beautiful, just as we affirm that those children’s lives were meaningful and purposeful and beautiful.

So while Robert Dear provided us with yet another illustration of why it’s evil to be a mass shooter, he also provided us with an illustration of why it’s evil to be an abortionist. He clearly did not do what we do or what we encourage others to do, because all we do is strive to end the butchery and victimization of the innocent, and we urge others to do the same.
