Ever since the draft opinion leaked from the Supreme Court that Roe vs. Wade is expected to be overturned in the coming weeks, the right has been pretending that the left is ready to engage in violence to make sure abortion rights are able to stay in place. In truth, the history of violence has to do with the topic of abortion is well documented and is overwhelmingly committed by right-wing terrorists. According to CNN, there have been more than 200 bombings and arson attacks at facilities that offer abortion services. Doctors David Gunn, Barnett Slepian, and John Britton were a few of the people shot and killed by anti-abortion extremists. Famously, abortion clinic director George Tiller was shot and killed in Wichita, Kansas in 2009. It has unquestionably been the right that has been violent on this issue, which is rather ironic since they’re the ones calling themselves “pro-life.”
