Treat pro-life activists like terrorists, late-term abortionist urges

Catholic World News - July 09, 2010

A notorious late-term abortionist has called for more aggressive police action to curb pro-life activism.

“Treat them like terrorists,” LeRoy Carhart suggested in an interview with the Boston Phoenix. Carhart was in Boston to speak at a fundraiser for the National Organization for Women (NOW).

NOW President Terry O’Neill emphatically supported Carhart’s suggestion, adding: “Unlimited detention! Freeze their assets!”

    The caption of this article is inaccurate and misleading. The people who are to be treated like "terrorists" are those "who've TREATENED the doctor and his practice" - NOT all pro-life activists - according to the Boston Phoenix article. An important distinction.
