WASHINGTON - In a piece published in Sunday’s Los Angeles Times, columnist Robin Abcarian proved that neither she, nor the establishment media, have any understanding of the pro-life movement.
Writing under the headline, “Why we might soon see a surge in antiabortion violence,” Abcarian opined that the Biden-Harris Administration’s shift in abortion policy would be met with violence by the pro-life movement.
NRLC strongly opposes any use of violence as a means of stopping the violence that has killed more than 62 million unborn children since 1973.
“Ms. Abcarian owes an apology to the millions of pro-life Americans who work through peaceful, legal means to secure legal protection for unborn children and to protect women from the trauma of abortion,” said Carol Tobias, president of National Right to Life. “Those who commit acts of violence against those involved in the abortion industry are not pro-life, nor do they represent the pro-life movement. By painting us all with the same brush, Abcarian and the LA Times employ hysteria and hyperbole to deliberately mislead their readers in an attempt to undermine pro-life policies supported by a majority of Americans.”
“Ms. Abcarian certainly has the right to disagree with the pro-life movement’s goals, but she doesn’t have the right to imply that we will use violence to achieve those goals,” added Tobias. “Pro-life Americans are committed to peacefully achieving a world where all innocent human life is respected by our society and protected by our laws.”
