Wave of violence against pro-life people as court prepares to rule on abortion

In a strongly-worded article in The Washington Post, columnist Kathleen Parker says the recent wave of violence in the USA aimed at pro-life people “should be investigated as terrorist acts.” The Supreme Court is due to rule on the 1973 Roe vs. Wade decision, which liberalized abortion at the federal level in the US. Since a draft showing several judges may be in favor of overturning this decision leaked on May 2, there has been a spike in unrest such as attacks on pregnancy counseling centers, disruption of church services, and an alleged assassination attempt of Supreme Court Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh. “It is a terrible irony that the people who want to protect life must put their own lives at risk,” denounces Parker. She criticizes the fact that these attacks are mostly reported only in religious or Catholic media outlets and that President Joe Biden hasn’t condemned these events. “Biden should have used a bullhorn to condemn all the above, presuming he was apprised of them,” the journalist says, concluding that “violence, after all, begets violence.”
