Pro-life Killer, Robert Dear
It seems strange when a “pro-lifer” kills.
Like Robert Dear’s recent mass shooting.
Yet “pro-lifers” are less interested in sustaining life than in controlling women.
That sounds crazy, but check this out:
Pro-lifers aren’t really pro-life
“Pro-life” politicians often (in fact, usually) vote against:
- Allowances for abortion to protect a mother’s life or health
- Prenatal care for the poor (which supports live births)
- Food stamps
- Universal health insurance
- Medicaid, Obamacare
- HPV vaccination for cancer
- Legislation to stop climate change
- Gun control
That last one helps men like Robert Dear to go on shooting sprees.
Pro-lifers actually want to control women
“Pro-lifers” are often conservatives who are intent on making sure that women are controlled. Many believe:
- Women should obey their husbands
- Women should be modest — allowing others to tell them what to wear
- A woman’s place is in the home — making her more dependent on a man
The next two “pro-life” stances also make it harder for women to be financially independent — leaving them more dependent on men (and more easily controlled by them):
- No right to terminate a pregnancy
- Limited rights or no right to contraception (even though it prevents abortion)
Many abusive boyfriends and husbands hide or destroy their partner’s contraception for that reason.
Meanwhile, televangelist, Pat Robertson, is against abortion in the US, but is okay with forced abortions in China (due to overpopulation). He’s only consistent in controlling women: trying to prevent US women from terminating a pregnancy and trying to prevent Chinese women from keeping one.
Robert Dear isn’t pro-life; he wants to control women
Obviously, anyone who would go into a clinic and start shooting people is not pro-life.
The mis-named Mr. Dear wants to force women to follow his religious beliefs (no abortion) or be killed.
But he follows a very different standard, himself. “He was a man of religious conviction who sinned openly,” says the New York Times.
An ex-wife explains,
He says that as long as he believes he will be saved, he can do whatever he pleases.
But women must do what he wants.
Including past wives or girlfriends he abused when they didn’t.
He also has a BDSM fetish. I can only guess that he wants to be the dominator.
