View from the choir

I am a Catholic layperson and Secular Franciscan with a sense of humor. After years in the back pew watching, I have moved into the choir. It's nice to see faces instead of the backs of heads. But I still maintain God has a sense of humor - and that we are created in God's image.

More Reports of Pro-Abortion Violence interviewed Fr. Tom Euteneuer, of Human Life International, about pro-choice violence. Here are some of his responses:

In the days when I was more actively doing sidewalk counseling, I was threatened with death twice by abortion clinic workers, threatened with physical harm numerous times by boyfriends and others who accompanied women to the clinic and several times I was assaulted by people in vehicles trying to run me over. The verbal harassment is too numerous and gross to recount, especially when directed against a man of the cloth. ...

In Kenya an abortionist tried to poison our director;
in Mexico, the HLI director found a knife covered with red blood-like liquid stuck in his couch with a message to stay out of abortion;
in Austria the anti-lifers have sued our affiliate (without success) and the city government of Vienna created special laws against them;
in the Philippines there are attacks against the character of our pro-life people and one parliamentarian called for the deportation of HLI’s Dr. Brian Clowes when he did a speaking tour there;
in Ecuador our affiliate leader was threatened with death, satanic graffiti was put on the door of a church against us, the severed head of a dog was thrown into a church with a desecrated Sacred Host in its mouth. ...

There has only been intimidation of family members like my father who stands in front of the local Planned Parenthood. It is regular fare: he has insults hurled at him and bottles thrown from cars. ...

The behaviors have always been irrational, but the new element seems to be an occult element that I believe we will see more in the future. “Death-scorts” seem to be more prone to curse and "pray" against pro-lifers probably due to so many of them being involved in New Age and witchcraft. Some of it is overt and some not. The abortion clinic owner in Rockford, IL periodically comes out of his place dressed in a devil outfit, for example. He also puts blasphemous images of Jesus and religion in the window of the clinic. One abortionist in FL some years ago shook blood from his abortion instruments on the pro-lifers after a morning of killing. We will see much more of this in time.

The Rev. Euteneuer may be spinning facts (or using unsubstantiated stories) when he writes, "in Mexico, the HLI director found a knife covered with red blood-like liquid stuck in his couch with a message to stay out of abortion."

He appears to be referring to Jorge Serrano Limon, the president of the Mexican branch of this organization... and rather notorious in Mexican politics. Serrano, who like Vicente Fox's wife, Martha Sahugun, came from the fascist (Synarchist) wing of the conservative party (PAN) was widely discredited as a serial liar after he was caught using government funds for private purposes... including buying himself (and the board members of the anti-abortion organization) very expensive underwear (designer tangas to be exact). Naturally, the press had a field day with that.

Since Serrano has his own private security, anything left in his couch probably came from someone within his own organization. But, he's the kind of guy whose stories you don't believe without double checking... twice.
