The abusive rhetoric pro-abortion radicals use toward social conservatives seems to constantly escalate. Recent pro-life events have been marred by violent outbursts on the part of protesters who want a free pass to murder babies until the very moment of a complete birth.
Abortion workers themselves often join in the assault, as was illustrated in an incident outside of a Texas facility.
Taking part in a 40-day campaign to stand up for the unborn, Miguel Abaunza stationed himself near El Paso’s Hilltop Women’s Reproductive Clinic earlier this week and prayed. Meanwhile, a nurse named Gloria Martinez spotted him on the sidewalk and reportedly targeted him because of his stance on abortion.
Abaunza said she drove her car off the road and straight toward him. While she ultimately failed to strike him, she reportedly shouted, “One of these days I am going to run over you.”
The peaceful pro-life protester was prepared, he said, since this was not his first encounter with Martinez. He recorded the event on his phone camera and expresses fear she will not stop until he is dead. A number of other activists have similarly accused the nurse of making threatening and obscene comments to them.
Despite the risk of retaliation, the group has no plans to stop their protest. Recently, they celebrated the fact that two pregnant women decided to keep their babies after speaking to them. A social media post encouraged readers to “pray for these courageous mothers!”
As for the clinic, this is not its first controversy. Two years ago, a man found the dismembered body of an aborted fetus in a bag nearby.
Protests in America are a common occurrence, whether in support of homosexuality, illegal immigration, or any number of other pet causes. What should be the highest cause of all — life — is the only one for which activists are routinely targeted by the monsters on the other side.
Instead of extending the same courtesies they expect when engaged in their respective rallies and marches, the left considers pro-life campaigns worthy of the utmost derision. Thankfully, the mission is so vital that protesters choose to face a potentially violent backlash in order to quite literally save lives.
