Another Planned Parenthood clinic burned. This time in California.

Courtesy of The Guardian:  

Police and fire investigators are combing through a charred and water-logged Planned Parenthood clinic near Los Angeles after a nighttime arson attack. 

An intruder broke a window and used a liquid accelerant to start a fire on the ground floor of the two-storey structure in Thousand Oaks late on Wednesday, just six weeks after the abortion provider was vandalised. 

A sprinkler system doused the flames, averting serious fire damage but covering the floor with several inches of water, forcing it to remain closed on Thursday. 

The attack came amid a political storm over Planned Parenthood triggered by a series of videos posted online by the anti-abortion group Center for Medical Progress, which has accused the healthcare provider of profiting from the sale of foetal tissue.

Those doctored videos, and the emotions they were designed to spark, have real world consequences well outside of political debate about defunding and policy changes. 

There are people who are willing to destroy, to threaten, and yes even to kill because in their minds they are saving actual children from slaughter.

In my opinion the group that doctored and then released those videos should be held criminally responsible for EVERY health clinic torched by anti-choice arsonists, EVERY incidence of vandalism against a Planned Parenthood facility, and of course any injuries or deaths that might be linked to their propaganda.

Oh and it goes without saying that Planned Parenthood needs to sue them for every cent that they have.


  1. No doubt the Arsonist was a "Christian". I hope they catch the culprit and lock them up for a good long time.

    Then again, maybe some of these kooks will say that the arsonist is merely following his or her religion and that burning down the clinic was what God would want.

    Speaking of arson G, has anyone ever figured out who burned the Wasilla church that Sarah P claims to belong to? And more importantly, did they ever figure out who burned down Dar Miller's house with Dar Miller in it?

    Brings back memories of the mysterious church fire at the Wasilla Bible Church, a non-denominational, evangelical Christian church in Wasilla, Alaska.

    Why would anybody burn down a church in Wasilla, Alaska?

    @2:45 Why did Darr Miller have to die from a house fire in Wasilla? What did she know?

    I am saddened to hear this about my local planned parenthood. I have taken my daughter to this clinic several times so she could get her Depo Provera injections. I didn't have health insurance at the time and they saw her for free. She now has insurance with her father but I will be taking her back to planned parenthood when they reopen. We can not be scared by these terrorists.

    Thank you @3:00. I used PP when I was young, and they were great. I donated to them this week. I hope everyone else will, too.

    OT-HISPANIC SNUB: CNN reports DONALD TRUMP claims he never agreed to appear in front of the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce while the group said they had a firm agreement for him to appear on Oct. 8 — which Trump now says won’t happen. “I never agreed to do an event,” Trump said.

    "Look, stuff happens, there's always a crisis. And the impulse is always to do something, and it's not necessarily the right thing to do.

    YEP, time to sue. And those of us who have believed in Planned Parenthood since its inception have some pretty bright and pissed off daughters who embrace feminism and the opportunities it has allowed them due to their mothers' and grandmothers’ past efforts.

      Thanks, 4:20. I dont want people to forget that.

  14. I figure they're two away.
    If they burn two more clinics people will act.
    I can see volunteer night guards outside PP clinics but instead of AR15s
    they have cellphones, flashlights and cameras.

    PP does a lot of good. I think the underlying reason for Republican politicians wanting to defund is about money first--and maybe abortions second. High fees for doctors/exams and pumping money into adoption providers. The people they stir up don't realize this.

    Palin is an example of another way to make money--and Bristol- off of going against PP. Sarah gets paid to speak & Bristol gets paid to blog. Whether Palin is really against PP or not, she gets a lot of traction/benefit out of going against PP---and she'll keep it up until she squeezes every dollar she can from it.


Don't feed the trolls!
It just goes directly to their thighs.
