The pro-choice community celebrated on Thursday, November 8, when a federal judge ordered an infamous Reading anti-abortion activist, John Dunkle, to remove posts from his internet website and blog that "clearly constituted a threat" against physicians, staff and patients of several abortion clinics in the region. With pending threats against abortion rights at both the state and federal levels, it is comforting to know that the Attorney General's office is willing to protect doctors and staff involved with abortion services.

On a daily basis, the frontline superheroes of the reproductive rights movement face villains claiming moral superiority. Like John Dunkle, these protestors barricade clinic entrances, send terrorist threats to clinic employees and physicians, and shove frightening anti-choice propoganda in the faces of clinic patients. In the name of God, they "protect the innocent" by threatening the lives of men and women. But who are they to judge?

I would like to thank those men and women, especially Dr. Mary Blanks and Jennifer Boulanger from the Allentown Women's Center, who were willing to come forward and stand up against a man labeled as a "domestic terrorist," by one of the assistant U.S. attorneys. I would also like to thank the clinic staff, physicians, and escorts who work hard on a daily basis to provide women with choices when they need them the most.

Even though Dunkle's website has been cobbled, there are many more anti's out there threatening patients and clinics. The infamous anti-abortion activist Randall Terry, who has been disavowed by Operation Rescue, is planning a clinic protest in the Philadelphia area on Saturday, Nov. 24th. We are seeking to train escorts in anticipation. If you are interested, please click here.

Now that John Dunkle has taken down his comments babykilling abortionists can continue to murder helpless babies in their mother's womb without interference.
Hope you babykilling pro-aborts are happy now.

A perfect example of the oppositions.

Where were you "Pro-Lifers", when Bush vetoed CHIP, when he votes for War.

Let's not forget, they're not "pro-life," they're "anti-choice"

And the good, loving Christians can still oppose choice if they want, but at least one sensible thing from our government won't let them threaten and kill individuals performing within the law.

John Dunkle is a twisted, sick man. His wife and kids blocked his website behind his back and lied to him about it. Not much respect there. Thank God we have laws in this country preventing these sick men from ruling over women like their terrorist cousins,the other major religious fundamentalists in the news,the Taliban. Women do what they need to do to survive just like men. Men will never have the choice to give birth or abort. Perhaps it is womb envy they have. The one thing they can't control in their women. Being an Ob-Gyne I know how many wives and daughters of these men have abortions and tubal ligations behind their backs out of fear and with support from the other women in their families. What hypocrisy these one issue, anti choice fundamentalists and thier women live.

I have always thought that radical Pro-lifers who threaten anyone's life are hypocrites. Is an unborn child's life any more important than that of the life being threatened?
Real Christians know that only God can judge us.
so why are these radicals judging people lives??
