    Yes and no.
    "Classic" or true terrorism attacks all of us - simply for existing
    Terrorism against an abortion clinic is only set against the abortionist and his victims.

    You dont think that the attacks do not affect women who were thinking of having an abortion? Or that the community surrounding where the attack was? I know if I walk near a clinic where they do abortions I keep an eye out for packages and crazy people. Bombing clinics affects everyone not just the workers and the owners of the clinic.

    Is there some significance to it being deemed a "terrorsit act", say a longer prison sentence, as opposed to your usual, everyday bombing?

    Bombings in this country are an everyday occurance?

    Don't be banal. My question was to the motivation of the OP to have abortion clinic bombings considered a "terrorist act". Is there some advantage to this?

    Of course its a crime..is it terrorism...I dont know how to characterize that and it may very well be if the intent is to discourage others from doing what they have a lawful right to do...if its just to kill someone in particular than its a crime...does that make sense ?

    Yes, actually.

    Due to a raft of atrociously bad laws passed during the Clinton and Bush II administrations, merely being ACCUSED of certain criminal acts (including some forms of terrorism) dramatically changes which legal rights -- if any -- you retain.

    I don't recall if domestic terrorism falls within that range of specified crimes, but for those select crimes, you don't have habeas corpus rights or in some cases even a right to a timely trial (i.e. you can be thrown in a dungeon without access to family members or counsel...indefinitely).
    I've moved on to a better forum (scienceforums.net). Facts matter, and I don't have the time or energy for putting up with the pretense that they don't. PM me if you'd like me to get in touch with you when I'm done developing my own forum system, likely towards the end of 2013.

    It paints people like Eric Rudolph as terrorists instead of being treated like a hero like he was by quite a few anti-abortion supporters when he was on the lam.
    I think that's an advantage.

    If you get tm ask the motivation of the OP,then I get to ask you what are your motivations?

    What advantage is that? Do you think the people who applauded Rudolph are going to think differently about him because he's labeled a terrorist in the MSM?
