Last week, in announcing that he would be hosting yet another press conference at the National Press Club, this time “to discuss what he and other pro-life leaders will and will not do if healthcare passes and includes paying for child-killing,” Randall Terry declared that Congress would be responsible for any violence that occurred as a result:
It is clear that many elements in the pro-abortion congress and White House want to force Americans to pay for the murder of the unborn in their “healthcare” program.
If that happens, it is tantamount to the government putting a gun to taxpayers’ heads to pay for the brutal murder of an innocent child. This is tyranny and evil of the highest order.
“Please understand: neither I, nor any thinking person wants the convulsions that would inevitably come from such a government policy — the decision to force Americans to pay for the murder of their neighbor.
“Nevertheless, the sheer horror and frustration of such an evil policy will lead some people to absolutely refuse to pay their taxes. And I believe — if my reading of history from America and around the world is correct — that there are others who will be tempted to acts of violence.
“If the government of this country tramples the faith and values of its citizens, history will hold those in power responsible for the violent convulsions that follow.”
Today, Terry issued another press release announcing those who would be joining him at the conference, which consists largely of people of whom we have never heard, plus “a Catholic Priest [and] a leader from the ‘tea party movement'” and warned that passage of any such measure would cause people to snap, leading to “horrific consequences” unlike any this nation has seen “since the Civil War”:
If Congress votes to fund the murder of babies by abortion in any “health care” bill — either explicitly or implicitly — there could be horrific consequences.
Pelosi and Co. cannot expect millions of Americans to betray God, and to pay for the murder of their neighbor without something snapping. They must not delude themselves: Congress runs the real risk of national convulsions that have not been seen since the 60s, or perhaps since the civil war if they try to compel Americans to pay for the murder of the innocent.
If they attempt to fund abortion, it is tantamount to the government putting a gun to taxpayers’ heads to pay for the brutal murder of an innocent child. There are many of us who will not comply.
