    Is violence an acceptable political tactic? No. But the anti-abortion movement in this country seems not to agree.

    "Acceptable" means different things under different circumstances. **** the American Revolution was pretty damn violent.

    Violence is never justified. I am a self proclaimed pacifist, but I will fight if need be.

    I'm part of the anti-abortion movement and I don't support violence. Your generalizations are false. So I guess the pro-choice movement is more violent because more babies have been delivered and murdered than abortion doctors murdered by crazy people? The pro-choice movement seems to not agree, as they have no problem with delivering babies alive and then murdering them in inhumane ways (and by pro-choice I mean a handful of "doctors." They define the whole group though).

    That was a war of independence. Are we in a war of independence?

    You have to deal with the fact, underline, the fact, that abortion is a legal medical procedure. Doctors who perform abortions are law-abiding citizens. Failure to acknowledge this is failure to deal with reality. Reality.

    I was merely pointing out that your question is WAY too broad.

    under certain circumstances violence is certainly justified. if those marched into the death camps of the Third Reich had all fought back and if only one of 20 had killed a german soldier, we would have crushed Hitler's regime much faster
