In anticipation of the Supreme Court releasing its Dobbs ruling, the Associated Press warned on Wednesday of violence against providers. It wasn’t until paragraph 14 that the AP finally recognized the recent and actual violence against pro-lifers, but since many do not read past the headline or first couple paragraphs, they probably missed that important detail.
The article , authored by Sara Burnett, begins by profiling Philadelphia abortion provider Amanda Kifferly, reporting that she has learned how to search for bombs “And on the night of last winter’s arguments before the U.S. Supreme Court in a case that could end the nationwide right to abortion, people gathered outside a clinic in New Jersey with lawn chairs, a cooler and a flaming torch — a sight that brought to mind lynchings and other horrors of the country’s racist past, says Kifferly, who now serves as vice president for abortion access.”
After going through some history, Burnett writes: They’re preparing for an increase in violence once the Supreme Court rules, saying there has historically been a spike when the issue of abortion gets widespread public attention, such as after a state approves new restrictions. If the decision ends Roe v. Wade — as a leaked draft opinion indicates may happen — they also anticipate protests, harassment and other violence to be more concentrated and intensify in states where abortion remains legal.

Burnett also quoted the National Abortion Federation’s chief program officer, Melissa Fowler as declaring, “We know from experience, it’s not like the people protesting clinics in banned states just pack up and go home.”
That quote also made its way onto a promotional image that the AP’s Twitter account used to promote the article. Later in the article Burnett declared that threats […]
They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We just launched a GiveSendGo page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
