Right-wing Christians will do anything to stop the rest of society from exercising rights that they’re opposed to. This is especially true when it comes to hot button issues like abortion. The threats and vandalism that took place at an Ohio Planned Parenthood location is the latest example of tactics utilized to intimidate women’s health workers.
The place was covered in red paint, and the following words referencing a bible verse was found at the scene of the crime:
“SATAN DEN OF BABY KILLERS GOD SEE ALLLL MARK 9:42”
Here is an image of those words plastered on the building:
The bible verse that supposedly forbids abortion reads:
And whosoever shall offend one of these little ones that believe in me, it is better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he were cast into the sea.
“These attacks are perpetuated by extreme individuals who continue to invoke lies and smear videos to demonize Planned Parenthood and the 80,000 Ohioans who come to us for basic health care,” Nicole Evans, spokeswoman for Planned Parenthood of Greater Ohio, said in a statement. “The individuals responsible for this act hope to send a signal that using acts of violence will intimidate health-care professionals and the women we serve. They are wrong. Our doors will stay open.”
