MCKINNEY – Officials with Planned Parenthood confirmed that their McKinney clinic was the target of violence sometime last night.

Holly Morgan, director of media relations and communications for Planned Parenthood in Dallas, said their McKinney health center located on Eldorado Parkway was “attacked” between 10 and 11 p.m. Tuesday with an incendiary device.

The person or persons involved in the attack threw a Molotov cocktail, consisting of diesel fuel in a glass bottle with a lit rag, at the building. Morgan said the device did not penetrate the front of the clinic but did cause some serious damage.  Click for full story.

There are laws on the books that protect Planned Parenthood and other women’s health clinics and abortion providers – it is called the FACE ACT

The DOJ used it when that guy in Wisconsin was fixing to shoot up a Planned Parenthood but instead shot his hotel room door.  DOJ was considering FACE application in the murder of Dr. George Tiller.

Go after these people and make a goddamn big deal out of it.  Like, now.

    this IS terrorism, Absolutely!
    Those who terrorize women are planning to target the women coming to Dr. Carhart’s Germantown Maryland clinic from this weekend till next, calling it their “summer of Mercy”.
    Well, we are having our “Summer of Trust” at that time in Germantown and they will not be able to get NEAR the clinic.
    Come down and stand for reason and stand with your sisters and brothers! Defend women, trust women, defend Dr. Carhart and his staff!
