Pro-Life Texas Legislator Threatened With Rape
As SB 5, a bill that would ban abortions at 20-weeks, prepares to be passed in the Texas Senate, pro-abortion activists have threatened pro-life legislators, like State Senator Donna Campbell, with rape. : Sexual assault was also wished upon her family. : Alas, we have the tolerant left.: As Betsy Woodruff at National Review: reported on July 2:
State senator Donna Campbell, who issued the third point of order against Davis’s filibuster (which ended it), has also been the target of extensive verbal abuse from pro-choice protesters, according to her spokesman Jon Oliver.
They’ve received Facebook messages and e-mails saying, “I hope you’re raped” and “I hope your daughter’s raped,” Oliver tells me.
“Lots of language – ‘You’re an effin’ blank,’ ‘You are a traitor to women’ – those kind of things,” Oliver says. “I wouldn’t say anything’s necessarily a direct threat, but they’re the kind of e-mails that make you a little nervous, especially when you start talking about family members: ‘I hope your family members are raped.’”
Oliver tells me that the Department of Public Safety is on high alert during the special session. He also says that the pro-choice offices near his office have been receiving flowers from activists. One staffer from Davis’s office asked him if his office had gotten any flowers.
He tells me his response was, “No, quite the opposite.”
Liberals have threatened a sitting legislator with sexual assault, but conservatives are the ones with the rape problem. Additionally, when State Sen. Wendy Davis began her filibuster of SB 5 on June 25, she said, “Lawmakers, either get out of the vagina business or go to medical school.” : That’s ironic. Donna Campbell is a doctor. : Yet, I’m not seeing her interviewed on the major news networks.
This egregious behavior is indicative of the institutional left. They’re intolerant, vicious, and devoid of decency. : Then again, that’s what your become when you lack core principles.
