By now you have heard all about the shooting near the Planned Parenthood in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
You know three people lost their lives Friday, November 27th, and another nine were injured.
You know the events last Friday were a tragedy. The shooting is condemnable, obviously.
No one in their right mind would advocate for, celebrate, or condone murder.
Yet, this hasn’t stopped some liberals from trying to lay the tragedy of the shooting near Planned Parenthood at the feet of the pro-life movement.
I thought I would point out three logical inconsistencies with the politicization of this shooting by the liberals.
1. Exactly Zero of the Victims Were Planned Parenthood Staff Members or Clients
Planned Parenthood themselves have confirmed none of their staff or clients were shot during the rampage.
Notice that the alleged perpetrator was shooting near the Planned Parenthood. He was not shooting at it. When he did fire inside the building, it seems Dear was firing from the building (toward the police).
These are factors hard to square with the political narrative being woven by the Left that this guy was targeting Planned Parenthood specifically. If he was exacting revenge for the daily carnage Planned Parenthood perpetuates, why didn’t he target any of their building or those inside?
Thank God he didn’t, but this remains a logical inconsistency with the media’s narrative.
2. The Liberal Media Seems Aloof that the Pro-Life Movement Condemns Any Violence at Abortion Clinics
David Daleiden, the man behind the Center for Medical Progress’s release of videos exposing Planned Parenthood’s illegal sales of fetal body parts, condemned the Colorado shooting.
Operation Rescue, run by Troy Newman, condemned the shooting, as did the Christian Defense Coalition.
Father Frank Pavone of Priests for Life, naturally, condemned the shooter’s attack.
National Right to Life also issued a statement condemning the shooting in Colorado Springs at the Planned Parenthood.
And on and on we can go. So, tell me again how the pro-life movement is responsible for the actions of a mad man not associated with the movement whatsoever?
3. It Takes Real Hypocrites to Cry Foul for the Murder of Adults for a Shooting Near a Planned Parenthood, but to Ignore the Murder Occurring Daily Inside Their Buildings
I know I am not the first to point this out, but it bears repeating.
Planned Parenthood murders children. They peddle death. They market the body parts of dead babies to make additional revenue. They take your tax dollars and dismember the smallest members of the human race.
Something like 900 babies die a day at Planned Parenthood on an average day.
So, if the liberals in this country really cared about preserving innocent human life, they would not be supporting Planned Parenthood or any other abortion clinic.
However, since they justify the murder of the unborn, they have accepted the premise that human beings can be murdered. So, tell me again, on what basis can they logically denounce a murder occurring outside their facility?
As it turns out, their hypocrisy gives us a glimmer of optimism. For, their consciences are not so far gone as to not be bothered by the death of at least some individuals. There may be hope for their pour souls yet.
What do you make of the tragedy occurring with the shooting near the Planned Parenthood?
