Montana: homemade bomb thrown at pro-life vigil

March 21, 2011

A homemade bomb was thrown at an elderly woman who was taking part in a pro-life prayer vigil in Kalispell, Montana. The woman was not injured.

“If the bomb were aimed at this lady and the assailant missed, that was a fortunate happenstance,” said Tom Brejcha, president and chief counsel of the Thomas More Society. “But what if he merely wanted to scare her, an elderly retiree praying on the public sidewalk — exercising her fundamental First Amendment rights — that alone would rank as an entirely unconscionable act.”
