Cheryl Sullenger, the senior Vice-President of the anti-choice group Operation Rescue
is hurt and upset by a newspaper ad in the Denver Post. Abortion provider Warren Hern took out a full page ad to address the people who are investigating him to make sure he’s not selling fetal body parts.
Hern’s ad said, in part:
“You and your Republican Party are vigorously allied with a violent terrorist movement that threatens the lives of women, their families and healthcare workers. As part of this sham ‘investigation,’ your letter to me and letters to other physicians constitute a program of target identification for anti-abortion assassins. You can deny this, but it is a fact.
“Your ‘investigation’ is legislative harassment that endangers our lives. The blood of any of us who are assassinated is on your hands.”
Sullenger had this to say about his statement:
“Hern’s warped perception of the work of a peaceful pro-life movement that sacrifices to aid pregnant women and provide loving alternatives to abortion – acts that he considers ‘terrorism’ — reveals how much Hern is deceived by his own fears and prejudices.
“Hern’s hateful missive is typical of ‘liberal-speak.’ Anyone who disagrees with the Left is hated, disrespected, castigated, bullied, and demonized.”
Fun fact: In 1987, Sullenger was involved in a failed plot to bomb an abortion clinic. She is an attempted terrorist complaining about terrorism. I’m sure the irony went right over her head.
