A Crackdown On Pro-Lifers Coming After The Shooting Of Congresswoman Giffords?

So now if you are pro-life you might try and kill a Congresswoman. From Life News:
The issue of abortion has been a significant one in the response to the shootings.

The social networking web site Twitter became an early place for people on all sides of the debate to easily weigh in with their comments in response, and it quickly became a bastion of misinformation. Apparently based on early reports wrongly indicating Giffords was shot because she was pro-life, Twitter became dominated by comments from those who claimed she opposed abortion.

“Gabby Giffords voted against amnesty and was pro-life,” a frequently re-tweeted message said.

Yet, according to the National Right to Life Committee, Giffords had a 100% pro-abortion record during the 2009-2010 session of Congress, including supporting the ObamaCare bill that funds abortions. Although she supports legalized abortion, Giffords, who barely defeated her pro-life Republican opponent Jesse Kelly in November, does take conservative stands on other political issues, including immigration.

That didn’t stop prominent liberals from blaming pro-life advocates.

“Mission accomplished, Sarah Palin,” tweeted Daily Kos founder Mark Moulistas after the shooting — in a comment that received significant criticism from conservative activists.

And NOW president Terry O’Neill, the head of the pro-abortion women’s group, blamed “extreme right-wing opponents” just hours after the tragic shooting and called for a Justice Department investigation “to the fullest extent of federal anti-terrorist legislation” to determine whether the shooting was “part of a conspiracy.”

“Conservatives cannot have it both ways, screaming sexist, racist and homophobic slurs at legislators as they vote for health care reform, putting legislators on a violence-inciting ‘Targets’ list, and then simply saying how sorry they are when someone explodes into murder,” she said. “We call on Republican leaders to do more than disavow hatred, hostility and violence-laden speech as a political.”
I guess I will see my other pro-life companions and fundamentalist Christians at the re-education camps.
