SAN ANTONIO — A San Antonio woman has a pro-life protestor to thank for saving her life at an abortion clinic.
Early Saturday morning, as a woman was entering the Alamo abortion clinic, her boyfriend emerged from the trunk of her vehicle and began shooting at her. A pro-life advocate returned fire, saving the life of the woman. The pro-life hero had a license to carry the concealed firearm he used to defend the woman. The boyfriend fled and is still at large.
“He absolutely saved this young lady’s life,” San Antonio, Texas, police spokesman Chris Ramos said. “He did something a reasonable person would do.”
But to understand reporting on the incident, you have to be familiar with politically correct speech. The woman was outside the Alamo Women’s Reproductive Services center. “Women’s reproductive services” is a euphemism for abortion.
Even the most cursory examination of the clinic’s website reveals its true nature. The Alamo abortion clinic heavily advertises the use of the Abortion Pill (RU 486 / Mifepristone and Misoprostol) and follow-up surgical abortion procedures. Abortion is its sole business.
The police accurately described the facility as an abortion clinic. But the news media did not.
Not wanting to use the dreaded “A” word itself, the local San Antonio news affiliate carefully used quotation marks to explain that police described the location as an “abortion clinic.” The NBC national news scrupulously avoided using the word “abortion” altogether, describing the location as a “women’s clinic.” If you didn’t know better, you would think the place is some sort of ladies’ Saturday morning club.
Even more telling, both the local news affiliate as well as the national news outlet also chose not to report WHY our hero was there. The local affiliate reported that a group of people were “protesting” outside the abortion clinic. Similarly, the national NBC news report describes the hero as a “protestor.” This begs the questions: What were these protestors protesting and why were they outside the Alamo abortion clinic at 8:30 a.m. on a Saturday morning?
Thanks to the incomplete reporting and news media spin, that’s what we know.
Now for a short commentary based upon a couple of logical assumptions: It’s safe to assume the woman in the report is pregnant and seeking an abortion. The Texas hero likely knew she was abortion-minded because she was entering the abortion clinic early in the morning during a time when surgical abortions are regularly performed. Our hero defended her from the man trying to shoot her because it was the right thing to do.
A law-abiding gun-owning pro-life Texas hero saved the life of an abortion-minded pregnant woman and her unborn child. He acted because defending innocent life is the morally correct thing to do. Abortion is immoral because it kills innocent life. Because life matters.
So, thanks to a pro-life good guy with a gun, this woman can come back to the Alamo abortion clinic to kill her baby next Saturday. And our hero or his fellow pro-life advocates will likely be there peacefully praying she chooses life instead.
