The FBI on Thursday announced a $25,000 reward for information on “a series of attacks and threats targeting reproductive health service facilities across the country.”
On Friday, MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell asked former Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards, “What about the issue, Cecile, of what the FBI is calling domestic terrorism? They are offering $25,000 rewards for any information on recent attacks against ten reproductive health care clinics. How concerning are these attacks and the implications for the women, the emotional stress on women and health care workers?”
You may recognize “reproductive health care” as the euphemism liberals use for abortion clinics, though not quite the exact words used in the FBI’s quote above, which referred to “reproductive health service facilities.”
Richards answered Mitchell: “Of course, it’s horrifying to think that this is happening in the United States., but it is. You are right, these attacks on doctors, on health care providers. But, Andrea, I think you mentioned a point that to me is really important and that is, what the Republican party through these abortion bans, the, kind of, bounty hunter system that is in place in places like Texas, it has created fear across the country for women, for young people, for families.”
If at any point in that exchange you thought they meant anything but “abortion clinics” that was dispelled when Richards specifically said that Republicans are causing it with abortion bans.
Not to mention the images on screen.
But of course the FBI was not talking about that. This is from the press release:
As part of a national awareness effort, the FBI is offering rewards of up to $25,000 for information leading to the identification, arrest, and conviction of the suspect(s) responsible for these crimes.
“Today’s announcement reflects the FBI’s commitment to vigorously pursue investigations into crimes against pregnancy resource centers, faith-based organizations, and reproductive health clinics across the country,” said FBI Director Christopher Wray. “We will continue to work closely with our national, state, and local law enforcement partners to hold responsible anyone who uses extremist views to justify their criminal actions.”
As the Daily Signal noted on Thursday:
But on Thursday, the FBI announced that it seeking the public’s help to identify individuals responsible for a number of incidents, including the June 27, 2022, arson of Two Hearts Pregnancy Aid in Seattle; the July arson and vandalism at Mother and Child Education Center in Portland; the June 10, 2022, firebombing of Gresham Pregnancy Resource Center in Portland; and the May 8, 2022, firebombing of Oregon Right to Life in Portland.
Of the TEN incidents, NINE were pro-life centers! Exactly ONE was a Planned Parenthood.
Mitchell did not mention that the facilities were pro-life, and in fact asked the former Planned Parenthood president to explain why in fact this was the fault of Republicans and the overturning of Roe.
“As these abortion bans are in effect longer and longer, we’re seeing more women, more patients who can’t get medical care because doctors and health care providers are terrified of breaking laws that haven’t even really been fully explained and written by non-medical professionals so it’s a climate of fear. I’m glad the federal government has stepped in.”
THEY STEPPED IN BECAUSE PRO-LIFE CENTERS ARE BEING FIREBOMBED AND TAGGED WITH “JANE WAS HERE” GRAFITTI YOU DISHONEST GHOUL.
You think we’ll get the self-appointed misinformation police and fact-checkers in the MSM to speak up on this?
Yeah don’t hold your breath.
