Leading pro-abortion group NARAL threatened pro-life Republican presidential candidate Rand Paul after he said that abortion should always be illegal in last night’s GOP presidential debate.
In reaction to Paul’s comments, NARAL tweeted out an image saying, “Keep saying s— like that and you’re gonna get punched.”

During last night’s Republican presidential debate, pro-life candidate Rand Paul made his abortion views clear — he thinks abortion is “always wrong.”
“You know, I think abortion is always wrong,” he replied to a question from the Fox News moderator. “I’ve supported a variety of solutions, both state as well as federal. In fact, just last week, I introduced the Life at Conception Act, which would say that the 14th amendment would defend an individual even in the womb.”
CNS News also noticed the tweet and reported that it was hypocritical in part because NARAL’s president has attempted to portray pro-life people as violent and admonished people on the words they use when discussing abortion.
NARAL Pro-Choice Ohio wrote in December that, “violent rhetoric begets violence” in announcing legislation to “address harassment of doctors, patients, and staff at Ohio’s nine abortion clinics.”
NARAL President Ilyse Hogue also chided pro-life activists for “hate-filled rhetoric” in November following shootings at a Colorado Springs Planned Parenthood.
Hogue implied that the violence was caused by the language of pro-life activists. “The language you choose matters,” she wrote.
