"Fire next Time"

Our friends on the left often com­plain about pro-​life pro­test­ers and never fail to point out any unto­ward word. Here is a bit of news they might not have caught. Today at 8 a.m. when the peo­ple who vol­un­teer at Prob­lem Preg­nancy came in they found this threat on their fence.

The sym­bols painted on the fence were the anar­chist and the fem­i­nist sym­bols. I talked to Cor­rine of prob­lem preg­nancy about it:



You would think that a place like Prob­lem Preg­nancy that offers free care to all com­ers, takes not state or fed­eral money and is staffed almost entirely by vol­un­teers would be a wel­come thing to fem­i­nists but I guess with­out abor­tion they don’t count. Speak­ing of which Planned Par­ent­hood has a very large facil­ity diag­o­nally across the street from them:

As you might guess where there is abor­tion there are pro­test­ers praying:

And hold­ing var­i­ous signs:

In reg­u­lar protest

Some of them were will­ing to talk to me:

They were care­ful not to cross the Planned Par­ent­hood 3 point line, but I was under no such restriction

So I went over to planned par­ent­hood as asked if I could speak to any­one con­cern­ing the van­dal­ism and threat.

They seemed gen­uinely sur­prised and upset by the van­dal­ism and threats lev­eled at Prob­lem preg­nancy. The secu­rity guard was able to use their cam­eras in the build­ing and was able to zoom directly into the spot at prob­lem preg­nancy where this took place.

but unfor­tu­nately since their cam­era are usu­ally focused on their own area their own cam­eras wouldn’t have caught it unless a guard had been pointed the cam­eras directly at them. The peo­ple there were quite polite but declined to give any for­mal comment.

Mean­while Prob­lem Preg­nancy as you might expect from a place staffed by unpaid vol­un­teers has a less com­pre­hen­sive cam­era sys­tem but their peo­ple where going through the film as I left. It’s much too early to say if any of their cam­era shots got the threats as they are still exam­in­ing footage.

My guess is this threat came in response to the pos­si­ble loss of fed­eral money for Planned Par­ent­hood. I didn’t hear any­thing on the local news or radio con­cern­ing this, to my knowl­edge this is the only media report on it, but then again Prob­lem Preg­nancy oper­at­ing with only dona­tions and gifts isn’t in a posi­tion to con­tribute mil­lions to any can­di­dates so nat­u­rally there is no story here.

As I have often said, media bias isn’t so much about what is reported, as it is about what isn’t.

Our friends on the left often complain about pro-life protesters and never fail to point out any untoward word. Here is a bit of news they might not have caught. Today at 8 a.m. when the people who volunteer at Problem Pregnancy came in they found this threat on their fence.

The Rock in question

The symbols painted on the fence were the anarchist and the feminist symbols. I talked to Corrine of problem pregnancy about it:



You would think that a place like Problem Pregnancy that offers free care to all comers, takes not state or federal money and is staffed almost entirely by volunteers would be a welcome thing to feminists but I guess without abortion they don’t count. Speaking of which Planned Parenthood has a very large facility diagonally across the street from them:

Planned Parenthood in Worcester

As you might guess where there is abortion there are protesters praying:

Protesting Planned Parenthood

And holding various signs:

Nothing is more scary than people praying

In regular protest

Some of them were willing to talk to me:

They were careful not to cross the Planned Parenthood 3 point line, but I was under no such restriction

So I went over to planned parenthood as asked if I could speak to anyone concerning the vandalism and threat.

They seemed genuinely surprised and upset by the vandalism and threats leveled at Problem pregnancy. The security guard was able to use their cameras in the building and was able to zoom directly into the spot at problem pregnancy where this took place.

but unfortunately since their camera are usually focused on their own area their own cameras wouldn’t have caught it unless a guard had been pointed the cameras directly at them. The people there were quite polite but declined to give any formal comment.

Meanwhile Problem Pregnancy as you might expect from a place staffed by unpaid volunteers has a less comprehensive camera system but their people where going through the film as I left. It’s much too early to say if any of their camera shots got the threats as they are still examining footage.

My guess is this threat came in response to the possible loss of federal money for Planned Parenthood. I didn’t hear anything on the local news or radio concerning this, to my knowledge this is the only media report on it, but then again Problem Pregnancy operating with only donations and gifts isn’t in a position to contribute millions to any candidates so naturally there is no story here.

As I have often said, media bias isn’t so much about what is reported, as it is about what isn’t.
