Here’s a video about the vandalism of a clinic in Kalispell, Montana, one that provides abortions along with other healthcare. Some anti-choice terrorist lunkhead broke every single glass object and sprinkled some kind of yellow powder over everything in the clinic. Here’s a little bit about the suspect, from the Montana Cowgirl blog:
Zachary Klundt is the son of a woman named Twyla Klundt, who is on the board of Hope Pregnancy Ministries which is affiliated with a fake women’s clinic called Clear Choice–which is a so-called “crisis pregnancy center,” MHRN [Montana Human Rights Network] reports.
As you can imagine, “Hope Pregnancy Ministries” is “Hope you Don’t Get an Abortion Pregnancy Ministries”, one of those shady places that crop up around every abortion clinic, and whose interest in women’s health is focused strictly on keeping the fetus in utero for the first 24 weeks of pregnancy.
If the son of some anti-gun activist had broken into a gun shop and vandalized the place like this, Fox would have gone 24/7 coverage on this violation of a constitutional right, and they’d treating the anti-gun organization like the local branch of the bin Laden fan club. Instead, this story didn’t go beyond the local news. If you’re interested in helping out Susan Cahill, who runs the clinic and wrote this sad letter to her local paper, here’s where you can kick in. And take a look at a map to see just how important it is that her clinic survives in a place as remote as Kalispell.
