Quote# 57395

[on the vehicular vandalism of a planned parenthood clinic in St Paul, Wis.]

Several employees were in the building at the time, said Planned Parenthood spokeswoman Kathi Di Nicola. She said the SUV hit the front door of the clinic two or three times, damaging the clinic's front door and surrounding stonework.

When Di Nicola arrived at the clinic, she said the man had gotten out of the SUV and was pacing around it, holding a crucifix and chanting. "He was agitated and he was saying, 'shut down this Auschwitz,' " she said.

We need more people like Mr. Derosia.
AFAIK the automobile industry is in a crisis, so, if there were more fundies driving their own vehicles into abortion clinics (damaging their vehicle beyond epair and requiring them to buy a new one) many jobs could be saved
(everything under the assumption, of course, that noone gets hurt and that the fundies are required to pay every costs that arise from the need to repair the damage to the building)

@ Old Viking
He drove his own SUV into the clinic? Fundy for sure.

First thought I had; Who's vehicle was it?
Aha! His mother's boyfriend's car, not his own.

I hope he does time for vehicular assault. I wonder if he knows or cares he could have killed someone in the name of pro life.

Actually, Mrs. Antichrist, I don't know if PPs are the same everywhere, but in MN they are one of the only places you can get proper OB/GYN care if you don't have insurance. The only other choice is the free clinic downtown - not really the cleanest place and in a scary neighborhood to boot.

In MN PPs do a lot for both pregnant (and wanting to stay that way) and general women's health - like annual exams. BC is a smaller part of that and abortions are the tiniest of tiny fraction of what they do. And if you don't have insurance, they treat you like a human... something I found out first hand is something to be treasured.

I propose the installation of .308 automatic turrets to the front door.

the poor guy has a history of mental illness, so can't be held entirely responsible.

However the religious indoctrinators should reflect

@Zuzu: Surprisingly, the PP near my house in Des Moines, IA has never been hit by protests.

If the guy's not responsible for his actions, he probably shouldn't have been allowed to own or operate a vehicle so powerful and massive that it's classified as a light truck. In fact, based on this behaviour, I'd hesitate to trust him with a Vespa. You're right about religious indoctrination, though - one feels that, just as they should probably be stopped from drawing children into the fold before they've even learned critical thought, religions should also be prevented from preying on mentally weak or damaged adults.

I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who took the time to respond to my question about protesters outside Planned Parenthood clinics. I am relieved to hear that I won't need to add "Fight fundies" to my list of things to do in the USA.

Thanks again. I'm really looking forward to seeing your wonderful country... even if you have supposedly got the anti-christ for a president :-)

Read the story at the link above. The guy is utterly delusional - nine admissions to Psych facilities since 2004! He has a serious mental-health problem, yet will almost certainly be praised by the anti-abortion lobby as a "true crusader" for their cause. Says a lot about the mental health of those who oppose abortion.

What was he doing with the crucifix? Were there vampires getting abortions there?

I jest, I jest...
