Reports are coming in that the attacker in this afternoon’s attack near a Planned parenthood facility has been apprehended following a standoff with police. Three people were killed in the incident, and while the exact motive of the attacker is still unknown (as well as his actual target) Planned Parenthood has come out and made a statement blaming the “extremists” that fuel “domestic terrorism” in the United States.
From their statement:
We share the concerns of many Americans that extremists are creating a poisonous environment that feeds domestic terrorism in this country. We will never back away from providing care in a safe, supportive environment that millions of people rely on and trust.
No matter your political position I’m pretty sure we can all agree that indiscriminate violence is not the right way to change people’s minds.
