Pro-Life Texas Legislators Receive Threats [“I hope your daughter’s raped.”]
NRO ^ | By Betsy Woodruff

Posted on 07/02/2013 11:42:46 AM PDT by Jim Robinson

Pro-life legislators in the Texas statehouse have faced threats and abuse from pro-choice protesters, prompting at least one to bring in extra volunteers to help with security.

State representative Jonathan Stickland tells NRO that being vocally pro-life has made him a target for abuse and threats from some of the pro-choice protesters in Austin. The night before state senator Wendy Davis’s filibuster, she requested that people send her stories about the importance of abortion rights that she could read during the filibuster. Stickland tells me that inspired him and a few other representatives from Tarrant County (part of which is in Davis’s senate district) to send in 84,160 pieces of blank pink and blue paper to represent the number of abortions in Texas last year.

“We delivered them to her office so that she could read the untold stories of all the kids who were aborted last year,” he says, adding that the gesture made him the target of intense vitriol, including thousands of tweets. Many were “very, very hostile,” he says.

“My favorite one was probably this female who said that she couldn’t wait to see Representative Stickland so that she could pummel my face in,” he tells me.

Yep, that’s what can be expected from the vile evil type of people who support the butchering and murder of babies.

Real threats to conservatives go ignored, imaginary threats to liberals get police attention.

Liberalthink:

1 - I am pro abortion because I don’t think government should be involved with womens health

2 - I am pro Obamacare because I think government should be involved with everyone’s health.

I am simply amazed that they see no logical fallacy with holding those two beliefs.

You can't change a person's position with reason when they
didn't get to that position with reason to begin with.

Aren’t all those threats tracable with all the NSA info-grab data? Start prosecuting them - you are free to say what you want, but if you break a law in the process, there should be consequences.

Ever notice that the left shuts down scientific debate about global warming, poo-poos debates about science and anatomy when it comes to homosexuality, but absolutely will not allow any scientific evidence in even a discussion on abortion?

The Texas Tea party needs to go to Austin for a two day food and music festival and during the day, go to the statehouse and watch the proceedings.

It would provide us with valuable information about how the Texas legislature works as well as teach us a good lesson in civics.

Plus, we can take up all the seats so the whackos can’t get in.

I live in Austin and will have to say that every Occupy person is down there. Yesterday on Craigslist they were asking for people to come down and they would pay them! The post was taken down after people started talking about it online. On KXAN.com there is an article about how 32% of abortions in El Paso are women from Mexico because their laws are so tight poor things they can't kill their children so they come to America! I tried to post the article but it wouldn't let me. If you're interested go to KXAN.com

No surprise. These are the days when Harvard students call for a ban on genetic research, just because the findings might say something they don't like.

Don’t forget that most of these idiots are also against the death penalty for murderous thugs.

Abortion=good
Death Penalty=bad

On his radio show today, Glenn Beck said some of the Austin sickos were chanting, “Mary should have had an abortion” and “Hail Satan.”

Scum.
