Pro-abortion Activists to Target Catholic Churches on Mother's Day

 

SAN ANGELO – Radical leftist organizations are calling on pro-abortion activists to protest at Roman Catholic Churches across the nation on Sunday, Mother's Day, over the leaked U.S. Supreme Court ruling on Roe v. Wade.  

Fox News is reporting the protests follow days of organizing in front of the Supreme Court building following the leak Monday night – protests that led the Washington, D.C., police to erect a fence ostensibly to protect the building and justices within. Fox News has also learned that there has been a strong police presence at the justices' homes following the leak.

"Whether you’re a ‘Catholic for Choice’, ex-Catholic, of other or no faith, recognize that six extremist Catholics set out to overturn Roe," the pro-abortion organizing group Ruth Sent Us posted on Twitter, with a video of activists appearing to disrupt a church service. "Stand at or in a local Catholic Church Sun May 8."

Brian Burch, president of the Catholic advocacy organization Catholic Vote, condemned the planned protests and urged President Biden – who has faced criticism for claiming a Catholic identity while supporting abortion – to condemn what Burch called "domestic terrorist threats."

"In the wake of the shameless leak of a draft opinion of the Supreme Court, pro-abortion groups are now threatening to disrupt Catholic churches and to protest outside the homes of Supreme Court justices this Sunday," Burch noted in a statement Thursday.

"President Biden must immediately and forcibly condemn these domestic terrorist threats," Burch declared. "Anti-Catholic zealots are plotting to intimidate and harass Catholics across the country, along with justices and their families. This country was built on freedom of speech and freedom of religion. The President of the United States must stand up for both."

No word yet on whether local pro-abortion groups are planning protests at San Angelo area Catholic Churches.

Why did Yantis post this in the crime category.  If anyone should know what a crime is, it's Yantis.  Brian Burch gives a perfect example of religious zealot/right wing hypocracy. 

"President Biden must immediately and forcibly condemn these domestic terrorist threats," Burch declared. "Anti-Catholic zealots are plotting to intimidate and harass Catholics across the country, along with justices and their families. This country was built on freedom of speech and freedom of religion. The President of the United States must stand up for both."

I guess those two freedoms only pertain to Catholics/Religious Zealots when they are protested against, or when they protest at a Planned Parenthood.  Yantis is just trying to rile up the local pro lifers.  He doesn't even know if protests are planned in San Angelo.

 

 

Freedom of speech is a thing. So is freedom of religion…so if any of these leftist pro-abortion “zealots” do show up and in any way attempt to block access to the church, they are in violation of federal law ;)

The White House will just call it peaceful protests. Let Republicans show up at democrat places of worship or threaten to stalk Federal Judges and see what happens. The dems and their news outlets will be screaming bloody murder. They would declare for Republicans to do such a thing means they hate their country. The White House would have the FBI hunt them down, arrest them and file charges. Someone here tell me that's not true.

How soon some forget the barbarous criminal activity of January 6 egged on by the Barbarian-In-Chief sitting on his fat, well-protected ass after he said, "I'm going there with you!".  Cowardly bastard.

Tell me sir, percentage wise, how many antifa that burned down neighborhoods, terrorized innocent people and destroyed lives over a period of months have been hunted down and arrested compared to the Jan. 6th riots that happened in one day. There are many videos of the antifa riots, burning homes and businesses while the democrats now in power were calling them mostly peaceful protests. I know your first argument will probably be But, but, this was the Capitol. I guess the fact that innocent lives were ruined and even taken doesn't matter if it didn't happen in the Capitol. The only real coward is that senile pretender sitting in the White House. The only person that would do a worse job leading this country is his VP.

The January 6 rioters sought to overthrow a government.  While I do not condone whatever destructive actions were carried out in the instances you cite and acknowledge those perpetrators should be identified and punished appropriately, they represented far less danger to the Republic than the animals that attacked due process regarding what has previously been a peaceful transition of power and carried with quite some grace in the past when it might not have been so had it not been for Al Gore.

Gore could have, and had the right to, pursue the battle over the debacle in Florida's reporting.  This whole thing remains subject to argument.  Nonetheless, he sought the high road and took the path that would best serve the country.  He acted with grace.  He acted with style.  Trump, in 2020, acted with petty selfishness and with no concern for the country.  He is a thuggish piece of shit, and I remain unable to unable to understand those who think this wholly self-serving soulless cretin is worthy of any respect whatsoever.

The people who attacked the Capitol are morons.  I have no respect for them.

As dumb as it was, were they all really trying to “overthrow the government”? Like for example the smiling guy who was pictured with the podium or the one in the horned helmet. Were they there to take over the government? It honestly looks like a giant cluster f in the videos. Just a giant out of control crowd with agitators taking advantage. 

Like every mass gathering most were there to protest.  Some would never have done anything bad, some didn’t plan on it but fell into a group think thing, and a small number were there to stop the transfer of power.  Had the lead group found Pelosi or pence bad things would have happened.  Blm protest were the same thing 90% of the crowd wasn’t there to burn or loot.

(The January 6 rioters sought to overthrow a government.  While I do not condone whatever destructive actions were carried out in the instances you cite and acknowledge those perpetrators should be identified and punished appropriately, they represented far less danger to the Republic than the animals that attacked due process)

First of all, I don't remember any AR15s, shotguns or other such weapons that most definitely would be needed to overthrow a government. Even with weapons they wouldn't stand a chance in hell of succeeding. What happened is people became angry at the fact that parts of that election process seemed very suspicious to say the least. They were sick and tired of groups like antifa terrorizing, causing so much destruction and threating to cause even more if the democrats didn't win the election. They were angry that democrats everywhere were excusing this and allowing it to continue. Unlike the Jan. 6th crowd, antifa had guns and knives they used to kill people and molotov cocktails used on official buildings such as city halls and police stations. This was the real threat to the Republic not the angry protesters that stormed the capitol, broke some windows, climbed fences and entered buildings. Yes a Police officer died at the hands of one idiot and an unarmed girl died at the hands of another. If you would like I can find out how many died over the course of the antifa riots. I assure you, it was many many times that. The dems keep referring to Jan. 6th as an attempt to overthrow the Government which is ludicrous at best but, it sounds good.

Most republicans work for living and don't have time to protest.

I’m sure you just screwed up, but anyone with a cursory knowledge of the constitution understands freedom of religion or speech protect you from your govt not random protestors.  

This is a poorly understood concept.  I blame it on those who never read the Constitution, especially the Bill Of Rights, and allow others to define what those rights mean.

I'm sure you just screwed up but, anyone with a cursory knowledge of the English language will understand my concern is the government, not the protestors.

What? The freedom of speech/religion is an INDIVIDUAL right protected by the U.S Constitution has nothing to to with whether it’s protestors or the federal government attempting to take away that right!

Tell you what,friend, go block the doors of the church and see what happens you’ll be led off in handcuffs ;)

you are 1/2 correct sir.  Freedom of religion and speech are individual rights that stop the govt from impeding you from following any wackdu beliefs you choose to follow.  

I do agree i cant block the doors of a church it violates several laws, the same laws that keep me from blocking the doors of an allsups.  So i agree on the arrest just not the reason for it. 

Haha “the same law that keeps me from blocking the doors of an allsups”

Not exactly I can quote the law if you wish ;)

Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances & Places of Religious Worship: “This Act prohibits the use or threat of force and physical obstruction that injures, intimidates, or interferes with a person seeking to obtain or provide reproductive health services or to exercise the First Amendment right of religious freedom at a place of religious worship”.

lol again your moving goalpost but i guess i was wrong about being arrested for the same crime.  We were talking about the freedom of religion granted in the bill of rights.  

Semantics. The Bill of Rights is part of the U.S. Constitution, thus the rights described within are considered “constitutional rights”.

Indeed, since the Bill Of Rights is the first ten amendments to the Constitution.  Part of me wonders if kids today are taught that in school, but I guess discussion of that might start another feces flinging storm.  Along those lines, I think a lot of the discussion here has been thoughtful and properly argued.  There have been some exceptions, of course.

Interesting law actually written to stop religious wingnuts from blocking abortion clinics.  thank you for the reading material. 

I have an opinion on the abortion issue. But it doesn't matter at all. All the rhetoric around abortion  is for naught. My opinion, and the arguments behind it, will never persuade a differing opinion to switch sides. The only thing that matters is the law, and that may very well be changing soon.

It’s no different than those who tried to block access to abortion clinics..,in fact it falls under the exact same law ;)

As usual just another reason for the butthurt snowflake libturds to demonstrate their terror tactics because they disagree.

Kinda like the demoncrat slugs that are out there in our nation breaking church windows and writing their drival on churches walls.

And all for just a rumour!!!???
