Celebrities call for violence even as pro-life groups get firebombed

In a landmark ruling on Friday, the United States Supreme Court ruled that there is no right to abortion in the Constitution.

That decision was quickly celebrated by pro-life advocates as it means that states may now protect children in the womb. Yet as Fox News reported, pro-abortion celebrities appeared to be terrified.

Some figures call for violence

They included singer and actress Barbra Streisand, who compared conservative justices to the Islamic fundamentalist regime which rules Afghanistan.

“The Court uses religious dogma to overturn the constitutional right to abortion,” Streisand tweeted, adding, “This Court is the American Taliban.”

Musician Taylor Swift expressed a similar view, tweeting, “I’m absolutely terrified that this is where we are — that after so many decades of people fighting for women’s rights to their own bodies, today’s decision has stripped us of that.”

Meanwhile, actor Ron Pearlman also voiced outrage in a tweet that compared the Supreme Court to ISIS.

Other verified Twitter users went further and openly called for violence. Among them was author and online personality Carlos Maza.

Firebombing campaign aimed at pro-life groups

What’s more, others demanded rioting and arson, with author Brandon Taylor tweeting, “Stay safe out there tonight, everybody. Also, burn it down.”

Those comments come even as pregnancy care centers and other pro-life organizations have been subjected to vandalism and firebomb attacks, with incidents occurring in multiple states.

Fox News reported earlier this month that offices belonging to the pro-life Wisconsin Family Action were torched. Later, the campaign office of Michigan’s Republican Rep. Tim Walberg was attacked by vandals who left broken windows and pro-abortion graffiti.
