    Is bombing a family planning clinic in opposition to abortion a terrorist act?

    Is bombing a family planning clinic in opposition to abortion a terrorist act? I say that it is. It's the use of violence to try to get your way politically.

    Of course it is. I understand their anger, of course, but they have zero right to blow anything up. They should be treated like any other terrorist under the law.

    Yes it is. Bombings of any kind is terror.... in war or not. That is why they bomb to create terror on the receiving end!

    It doesn't 'get their way' politically - they're 'trying to get their way' or they 'think it will get them what they want'

    It's in their head that it's 'effective' - it's just criminal acts guised as a 'cause'

    It's an attempt to scare people and make a message against abortion.... pretty straight forward.

    Of course it is a terrorist act... I guess you can say,"two wrongs don't make a right", in this case.

    I said yes, the action is dedicated to inspiring terror in those who who use these clinics.

    Terrorism is the act of coercion through violence, not necessarily getting ones way. Plenty of terrorists don't get their way, but they'll make the rivers run red with the blood of their perceived enemies if allowed to continue their actions. That's why armed predator drones exist.

    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.
