On Friday, LifeNews.com reported on an unidentified person who threw a “Molotov cocktail” at an elderly woman at pro-life prayer event.
“A homemade incendiary device was thrown at one of the participants of the 40 Days for Life pro-life prayer vigil at an abortion business in Kalispell, Montana on Thursday night.
The woman walked on the public sidewalk near the abortion business when an unidentified person threw the device — akin to a “Molotov cocktail” — in her direction. The woman did not see either the firebomb nor the assailant it exploded on the sidewalk behind her, making a loud popping noise like a big firecracker as it burst into flame. Fortunately, the woman was not hurt in the incident.
After she regained her composure, the victim called Karen Trierweiler, coordinator of the 40 Days prayer vigils in Kalispell at the All Family Health Care abortion center, over to her.”
From what I can see in the photo LifeNews.com provided, this particular bomb was made using a plastic bottle. Thus we can be pretty sure that the aggressor did not intend to kill any pro-life activists, but rather intended to harm them (fire bombs are designed to set things on fire), and scare them.
In my time in the pro-live movement, I have very often come across the “argumentum ad ignorantiam” – the argument from ignorance. Often I am confronted with an argument which relies almost completely on verbal abuse. However there is another form of argument: “argumentum ad baculum” – an appeal to force. Baculum is Latin for cudgel. Why are proponents of abortion so quick to resort to verbal and physical abuse? The answer is, quite simply, that they are frustrated, and ultimately unable to combat our consistent presentation of truth and science.
You’ll remember we discussed the propensity of abortion’s proponents to use embarrassingly childish and ignorant arguments in my March 16 post, “A Consistent Pro-Abortion Position Must Accept Infanticide“.
But wait, you say – I thought it was pro-lifers who were the violent ones… I’ll hand it over to AbortionViolence.com who aptly brings a bit of desperately needed perspective to the issue of violence in the abortion debate.
“We’ve heard endless stories in the mainline media about “anti-choice violence” and an “organized campaign of terror and intimidation against reproductive health centers.”
But where does the real violence lie when it comes to the abortion issue?
Pro-life groups have emphasized the violence that goes on inside the abortion mills—but what about the violence that pro-abortionists commit against born human beings?
The pro-life movement is unquestionably the most peaceful social movement of all time.
We have all heard about the seven murders committed by self-identified anti-abortionists during the time period 1994-1998. But to put this into perspective, according to the United States government, more janitors, bartenders, secretaries, hairdressers and cosmetologists have been killed on the job than abortionists.
The most violent social movement of all time is so-called “pro-choice.” Not only have “pro-choicer’s” killed tens of millions of innocent preborn babies in the name of convenience, they have murdered hundreds of men, women and children.”

Watch this video [Warning: Language]. This is a woman who has suffered from an abortion, if ever I’ve seen one. Why does she resort to verbal and physical abuse? Why is she so distraught and angry? It is because abortion is the ultimate violence being carried out in the name of choice, every day in the United States. Every day in the U.S.A., 4,000 absolutely innocent and helpless pre-born human-beings are torn limb from limb. And every day in the U.S.A., 4,000 women are lied to – with their back up against a wall, and the men in their life either abandoning them or pressuring them, they are put through the unthinkable trauma of having their pre-born child ripped from out of them and thrown in a trash bin.
The pro-abortion movement seeks to defend the indefensible. It’s enough to drive anyone insane.
For the silent unborn,
