Those crazy violent pro-lifers are crazy and violent and stuff.
Pro-life violence is the subject of a massive amount of news stories, opinion pieces, documentaries, television shows, and movies. You’d think there was a national epidemic. Of course, there isn’t.
You’d never know that pro-abortion violence occurs far far more often. But every time it occurs it’s not labeled as such. It’s what some reporters call a “local crime story.” There’s no trend here. Nothing to see, even though it happens all the time everywhere throughout the country.
But how often do we read about the tragedy where a man kills a woman because she was pregnant? All. The. Time.
The Daily News reports:
A Connecticut man enraged that his pregnant girlfriend wouldn’t get an abortion allegedly hired a hitman to kill her, according to court documents.
Carlton Bryan, 21, was riding with Shamari Jenkins, who was four months pregnant, when she was fatally shot April 29 while driving in Hartford’s North End, police said.
Alleged trigger man Matthew Allen Hall-Davis fired through the back window and struck 20-year-old Jenkins.
Shamari Jenkins, 20, was killed in April. Police say her boyfriend put a hit on her because she was pregnant and wouldn’t get an abortion.
Shamari Jenkins died because she wouldn’t kill her unborn baby.
But to the media, George Tiller is a hero, a martyr. Currently, in Google News, in the past few weeks there were over 1,400 mentions of late-term abortionist George Tiller, despite the fact that he was murdered years ago.
In the same time period, there are only nine mentions of “Shamari Jenkins” in news stories.
Shamari Jenkins will be forgotten by most. She will be a footnote, an anomaly not worth discussing. None of the major media outlets have even mentioned her name.
Please say a prayer for a young woman who chose life.
