Leftist Group Pulls Ad Hiring Radical Pro-Abortion Agitators to Oppose Texas Law

Austin, TX – Last week it was revealed that the raucous crowd that disrupted legislative proceedings in Texas last week, derailing a law that would ban abortions after 20 weeks, was whipped into an angry mob by leftist socialists and hold-ons from the anarchy-driven Occupy movement.

Now it has been discovered that a radical left-wing group with ties to the Obama re-election campaigns sought to hire outside agitators for pro-abortion mischief at the Texas Capitol as a new session has begun that will again attempt to pass abortion restrictions aimed at increasing safety for women and protecting late-term babies that can feel pain.

An ad on Craig’s List in Austin by “Grassroots Campaigns” sought to hire abortion activists for “our Pro Choice Campaign in Austin” offered to pay $1300-$2200/month.

The Craig’s List Ad was taken down sometime this morning after news of it began to circulate among pro-life activists on Facebook, but Operation Rescue archived the ad before it’s removal.

On the Grassroots Campaigns web site, the group states that it works to hire activists in the areas of “environmental protection, LGBT equality, poverty and social justice.” It notes that it has joined forces with the radically liberal organization MoveOn.org and other leftist groups were heavily involved in the Obama re-election campaign as well as radical environmental groups.

“It is clear that militant left-wing activists are being paid in an outrageous effort to disrupt the legislative process in Texas and manipulate the public into thinking that the pro-abortion crowds shown on the evening news are organically generated. The reality is that hired thugs are being brought in by Obama Administration leftists to thwart the true will of the people who support this common-sense abortion bill by no less than 64%,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue.

The bill was prompted by news of abortion horrors committed by late-term abortionist Kermit Gosnell, who was convicted in May of three counts of First Degree Murder for killing babies born alive during late-term abortions. The bill was given greater urgency after Operation Rescue helped break the news of similar illegal behavior by Houston abortionist Douglas Karpen. Karpen remains under active investigation by the Houston Police Department Homicide Division.

“We need to remember what this Texas law is really about and that is providing more protections for women from substandard medical practices and protecting babies that can feel pain. It’s hard to believe that anyone would want to fight to keep abortion dangerous and continue the barbaric practice of late-term abortion that eyewitnesses say have led to abortionists twisting the heads off babies born alive during abortions. Those acts are simply indefensible and require legislation protections immediately,” said Newman.

Gov. Rick Perry and Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst have promised passage of the law during this second special legislative session called after a pro-abortion mob caused chaos last week that delayed finalization of a vote in the Texas Senate last week. That delay killed the bill and necessitated the second session to ensure passage.

Pro-life supporters are urged to support the new measure on Twitter.com by tweeting under the hashtag #Stand4Life.

    This doesn’t surprise me one darn bit. Some folks just don’t get it!! Don’t they understand the concept of Real pro-choice? These folks want us to be tolerant but they don’t think they have to be so. Shame on them!

    Is it any wonder that people who refuse to respect the life of a pre-born child do not respect the rule of law or the democratic process?

    Joe Scheidler and Father Frank Pavone, in fact all Pro Life Leaders that I know of who have dedicated their lives to end abortion by legal and moral means, have been consistently bullied by The Powers That Be. And still, against all odds, the Pro Life message is turning the tide against the killing of the innocents. Lies cannot stand forever.

    When you have to hire your protesters you have to question the viability of the cause.2

    Honestly it’s encouraging to hear that the pro-abortion side has to HIRE people to stand for their cause. That’s because, nobody without a shady agenda would fight this bill.

  • Planned Parenthood stands for PROFITABLE PREDATORS!

    If they cannot win on the issues, they bully intimidate and use scare tactics.

    Their days are numbered!

    I was in the TX House Gallery 2 days before the 1st Special Session ended, and the pro-aborts were highly organized, and very rude. My wife was slightly assaulted and battered (no physical damage) when she tried to enter an area outside the gallery that a pro-abort woman said was their area, even though no such designation existed.

    I had the feeling from the pro-aborts that a strong rage boiled under their surface, and I think we saw alot of that erupt on the Tuesday evening when the Senate tried to take a final vote and the pro-aborts shouted down the Senate.

    When you can’t win elections, I guess you can also riot and hire people to riot with you. Modern civilization is not their strong suit.
