Bombing Abortion Clinics

It seems like we don't hear as much about bombing attacks on abortion clinics now as we did a few years ago. It is tempting to conclude that this is a thing of the past and people have come to their senses. Unfortunately, this article shows that this is far from the truth.

Attacks on abortion doctors are probably the most common type of Christian terrorism within America. Most mainstream Christians are quick to dismiss those who carry out such attacks as fanatics who do not represent their religion. And yet, those who perpetrate such acts tend to be Christians motivated, at least in part, by their religious beliefs.

If one is repeatedly told by one's clergy that abortion is a form of genocide, then it is easy to see how one might be motivated to stop it. After all, who wouldn't want to end genocide? Moreover, if abortion is really genocide, it is not too difficult to imagine how someone might come to justify a bombing as protecting the unborn.
