Abortion advocates claim to support women but it appears some only support abortion and violence.
After Alabama passed a pro-life bill to protect babies from abortions last week, pro-life Alabama Governor Kay Ivey signed it into law. The liberal media and abortion advocates launched a concerted campaign to target the pro-life men in the Alabama State Legislature who voted for the bill.
Those male pro-life legislators were castigated for the fact that they are white men who supported pro-life legislation even though the bill will protect women and unborn children of all races from abortion. That targeted campaign led to threats of violence for one pro-life legislator, State Sen. Garlan Gudger (pictured), who said his wife was threatened with rape and his son was targeted with harassment.
“Overall, it’s been tough,” Gudger said during an interview that aired on Friday’s broadcast of Alabama Public Television’s “Capitol Journal.” “It’s been tough dealing with the balancing of my wife and my children being attacked. I obviously don’t like that part. No one should be attacked or threatened with harm for a difference of opinion. But overall, I’m doing well — besides that.”
The Cullman, AL state senator told APTV’s Don Dailey both his son and wife had been targeted.

“People have contacted my 15-year-old son on Snapchat and social media,” he explained. “My wife had been contacted that they were going to break into our house and rape and do other things to her. It’s been a lot of stress at our household — and a lot of the other colleagues on the floor the same way. It’s something we have to deal with, and we’re dealing with it.”
After passage of the bill, one abortion activist was arrested for vandalizing the state legislature. And in Mississippi, after the state approved its abortion ban, an abortion advocate was caught on video assaulting a pro-life man.
Research shows 60% of the babies in Alabama who would be saved from abortions are black.
