Local Political Violence

Letter to the Editor | Friday, October 10, 2008

Last week I put a sign in my yard that reads “Pray to End Abortion.” The sign is part of an effort called 40 Days for Life which has a simple aim: to get people to pray to end abortion. Within days of putting the sign up someone dumped a full can of trash on it. This week I have had eggs thrown at my house and my car window smashed out with items stolen. It is frightening to think that this is how the pro-abortion movement responds to non-violent protest in our local community! I guess it is not surprising that a movement that thinks it is a “right” to do violence against unborn babies will resort to violence against mere peaceful political expression.
