Colorado Planned Parenthood Shooting Is Part Of A Frightening Trend

Is this the next stage of anti-abortion violence in America?

A gunman opened fire in a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado Springs, Colorado, on Friday, the latest in a string of attacks at the health care provider's clinics this year.

.

Robert Lewis Dear, 57, who surrendered to authorities after an hourslong standoff, appears to have been motivated by opposition to abortion. Abortion clinics have long been the targets of violence, including bombings, anthrax scares and mass blockades. This year alone, arsonists attacked four Planned Parenthood clinics in Washington, California, Illinois and Louisiana.

.

In October, NARAL Pro-Choice America launched a petition urging the FBI to investigate the arson attacks, stating that theyre perpetrated by an extreme minority thats committed to ruling through fear and intimidation and urging the FBI to treat them with the gravity warranted by domestic terrorism.

.

We cant wait until one more patient, doctor or nurse is hurt or killed before we say enough is enough. Its time for an investigation to get to the bottom of this, the group said.

.

Attacks on clinics are not always violent, though they are often threatening, designed to sow fear and to make it harder for abortion providers and clinic workers to do their jobs. In Living in the Crosshairs: The Untold Stories of Anti-Abortion Terrorism, David S. Cohen and Krysten Connen detail the many ways in which clinics have been attacked or threatened in the last several decades:

.

Extremists have also thrown butyric acid into clinics, glued clinic locks shut, locked themselves into clinic property using items such as bicycle locks or chains, drilled holes into clinic roofs so that the clinic floods, invaded clinics, vandalized clinics, made threatening phone calls, tried to persuade patients to go to fake clinics, put spikes in driveways, talked outside clinics about bomb-making chemicals, laid down on sidewalks, jumped on cars, camped out in front of clinics for multiple-day stretches, and sent decoy patients into clinics to disrupt business.

.

Cohen told The Huffington Post that Fridays shooting was on the extreme end of the obstacles that abortion providers and clinic workers face on a daily basis. The normal part of being an abortion provider is living an working in fear, and today is an example of why, he said. Thankfully these things dont happen every day but they do happen, and because they happen, abortion providers have to live their lives and go to work knowing that theyre in danger.

.

One of the most high-profile examples of violence against an abortion provider is the 2009 murder of Dr. George Tiller in Wichita, Kansas. Tillers clinic had been the target of numerous acts of sabotage and violence, including a shooting in which Tiller was hit in both arms.
