In the wake of the horrific shootings at a Planned Parenthood facility in Colorado Springs, Colorado in which a crazed man killed three people, the mainstream media rushed to link the domestic terrorist to the Pro-life movement.
The mainstream media tried to blame the Republican party for the attacks by saying that their “rhetoric” caused the gunman to act. The president of Planned Parenthood, Cecile Richards, blamed the group that uncovered Planned Parenthood’s baby parts for profit scandal as the reason that the gunman acted. The media wanted so badly to make the shooting fit their agenda that they completely ignored one fact.
One of the police officers killed trying to save the people inside of the Planned Parenthood building was devoutly pro-life.
According to newsbusters.org, Officer Garrett Swasey was a husband and father of two. In addition to being a police officer, Swasey was also an elder in his church. He was entirely opposed to abortion and the ending of the lives of innocent children. Yet when the shooting crisis arose, he gave his life to save the people inside of Planned Parenthood.
The media was too eager to use the tragedy to further an agenda and vilify groups who disagree with abortion. Unfortunately, a heroic man of faith and strong moral convictions was swept under the rug by the media because he didn’t fit the agenda.
Since the media won’t honor him, we want to stop and recognize Officer Swasey for his brave and truly heroic actions. He exemplified what it meant to be Pro-life. Please pray for his wife and children that are left behind by the senseless tragedy. Please also pray for the families of all who had been killed or hurt.
