Walker's 'Birth Control Pills Are Murder' Rhetoric Incited Clinic Bombing

There is no one in Wisconsin that has been more of a rabid leader in the anti-choice movement than Scott Walker. 

When it comes to women's health, Scott Walker preaches what he believes to his fanatically anti-choice supporters.  And what he believes is that birth control pills that women have used for decades are actually that kill a human life.  This is because in a very small percentage cases a birth control pill allows a women's egg to be momentarily fertilized.  The egg never grows, but because it was fertilized, Scott Walker and other extremists believe not only that this is a human being, but that it has the same rights as a 30 year old person.

Walker even says that he sees no difference between birth control pills preventing fertilized eggs from attaching to the wall of the uterus and killing an elderly woman:

"I am 100% pro-life and believe in protecting life from conception to natural death. As governor, I will protect the sanctity of all human life.  I believe government has no higher purpose than protecting its citizens, particularly those that cannot fight for themselves like the unborn and elderly."

Therefore, it should be no surprise that someone who regularly equates murdering an old lady to taking birth control pills would not condemn someone who bombs a Planned Parenthood clinic that uses most of their resources into providing birth control pills to women.

In Walker's world, what this terrorist did was a good thing:  He tried to close down clinic that murders people and succeeded in closing down the clinic for at least a day.

Why would Walker condemn that?

At the end of the day, what Walker and others in the anti-choice movement have done is juxtaposed a microscopic egg that has been momentarily fertilized and has no chance of growing into anything with a born, grown person and told his followers that they are exactly the same.

They are not even close to being exactly the same and making such a comparison is not only absurd, but its dangerous:  It incites true-believers like the Planned Parenthood bomber to protect people from being killed.

And that is exactly why Scott Walker-- the defacto leader of the anti-choice movement in Wisconsin-- bears the most responsability for the Planned Parenthood bombing.
