ARGENTINA: Pro-Choicers Firebomb, Assault Police After Failed Abortion Vote

When pro-lifers lose, as they did in Ireland, they go into their churches and pray. When pro-choicers lose, as they did last night in Argentina, they firebomb police and assault those with whom they disagree.

Pope Francis’ homeland of Argentina defeated a bill in the Senate to legalize abortion up to 14 weeks on Wednesday night by a narrow vote of 38-31, with two lawmakers abstaining. In response, pro-abort radicals took to the street, vandalizing private property and assaulting police.

LifeNews reports that “abortion activists threw firebombs and glass at riot police and pro-lifers on the streets of Buenos Aires after the vote.” Photos and video from varying news outlets confirmed the reports:

The violence began after riot police set up a mobile barrier where pro-choicers were lighting fires and throwing glass bottles at pro-life activists.

“The demonstrations were largely peaceful, but after the vote, small groups of protesters clashed with police, throwing firebombs and setting up flaming barricades,” Newser reports. “Police officers responded with tear gas.”

No report indicated if any arrests were made.

Current laws in Argentina allow for abortion only in cases of rape, severe disabilities, or threats to the mother’s life. Prior to the vote, an online video game circulated by pro-choicers allowed players to murder priests, pro-life activists, and a giant unborn baby in “Doom”-style fashion.
