    Yes, absolutely. Is this even a question?

    I don't like how the US government has exploited that word and used it to erode the constitution. There is very little actual "terrorism" that the CIA or FBI did not instigate , have a hand in, or create outright altogether.

    Violence against clinics and doctors who provide abortions is terrorism by definition. The terrorists are sending a message meant to terrorize and coerce doctors into refusing to provide abortion services because they fear for their lives, and women are terrorized by the threats against them for using clinic services.

    It's quite obviously a tactic to prevent women from receiving a perfectly legal, constitutionally-protected medical procedure, thereby enforcing their will on the rest of the populace by violent means.

    I don't see how playing semantical musical chairs can obfuscate the obvious.

    Straight to the heart of the matter as always Di. I fully agree.

    As I wrote if of it, it is not to achieve a political goal. It is to achieve a tangible goal of stopping abortions. To you it is JUST political. But to some other people I suspect it is murder and has nothing to do with politics.

    It's only terrorism if a Muslim does it. I think.

    Or at least we're only supposed to get outraged if it's a Muslim.
