A bomb squad from the Bellaire Police Dept. was sent to the Texas Right to Life office after a suspicious package arrived in the mail, Fox News reported. The package ended up being harmless but that scare came after someone used a patient document to warn a bomb was “being sent through the mail from Portland” in five days.
Kimberlyn Schwartz, speaking on behalf of Texas Right to Life, tells American Family News the pro-life staff was already on edge from a barrage of threats and vulgar phone calls when “red flags” went up after a postal worker dropped off a package.
“So the police cleared out our entire building,” she recalls, “because we share this building with other businesses.”
Bellaire's police chief told Fox News his department is following up on several threats made against the group.
Asked about the vulgar comments and threats, Schwartz says she can’t repeat many of them because of their vulgar content but, citing one example, she told Fox she was most shocked by messages about “eating babies.” For its story, Fox News obtained numerous emails, social media posts, and voicemail messages shared by Texas Right to Life and published them for the public to see and read.
“Guess what, sweetie, the Lord isn't going to [expletive] save you because there isn't one,” one yelling caller said. “Because Jesus wasn't white, the apostles weren't white, the Bible has been rewritten so many [expletive] times…Jesus is a figment of your [expletive]imagination. Don't push your [expletive] [expletive] religion on us, on the rest of us. You're a [expletive] cult."
The irony of such an anti-religious rant, beside that fact abortion rights is a religious-like cause for the Left, is the Texas law follows the science of a fetal heartbeat, which begins at six weeks while the fetus is still an embryo.
“By 6 weeks, your baby’s heart is beating 110 times a minute,” WhatToExpect.com, the popular pregnancy website, plainly states in a medically-reviewed story written for expectant mothers.
Other veiled threats included references to a noose, another referencing rape, and another who wrote in an email, "tick tock."
Beyond reacting with fear from the threats and verbal abuse, how does the pro-life group view the anger?
“It shows that there's a lot of woundedness on these people's hearts,” Schwarz observes, “especially the ones who would wish to do us harm.”
