Ted Cruz Says Planned Parenthood Shooter Was “Transgendered Leftist Activist”

One of the few things we know about Planned Parenthood shooter Robert Lewis Dear is that he told police officers “no more baby parts” after he was captured, suggesting that he believed a myth that the Right has been perpetuating for several months now.

But Ted Cruz doesn’t buy that explanation. Or at least, he’d like people to stop paying attention to that four word phrase because it would implicate his own conservative base. So he offered a different motive for Dear’s rampage to reporters in Iowa today:

“Pro-Lifers” Take to Twitter to Praise Planned Parenthood Shooter

While the majority of the country is expressing sympathy to the victims of the Colorado Springs Planned Parenthood shooting, there are those who are so despicable, they’re praising the acts of this domestic terrorist that left 3 dead and 9 injured.

Yes, pro-lifers have found the silver lining. You can call them utilitarians, but to assume they’re contemplative, rather than motivated by blood-thirst, may be giving them too much credit. According to a select group of Twitter-dwelling anti-abortionists, the violence carried out by a man wielding an AK-type gun at a women’s health facility yesterday actually did more good than harm if you’re counting the number of abortions he prevented while interrupting the day’s services.

According to Planned Parenthood, 3% of what they do is abortion services. The majority is contraception, STD screenings, and routine care. Statistically, it’s far more likely that someone will have to go a few more days wondering if that rash is something to worry about than being unable to obtain an abortion.

Robert Lewis Dear indiscriminately killed three people who were already established in the world — not knowing their stance on abortion, not caring if his victims had families, giving no consideration to life. He is anti-life no matter how you spin it. Tweeting support, or justification, for his actions makes you no less of a monster.

Here are some people we should all be worried about (some of whom have since deleted their tweets):

After Planned Parenthood Shooting, Republican Presidential Candidates Remain Silent

Even though we don’t know exactly why Robert Lewis Dear walked into a Colorado Springs Planned Parenthood with an “assault-style rifle” yesterday, killing one police officer and two civilians, surely you can have sympathy for the staffers and patients inside that facility, right?

Hillary Clinton did:

Bernie Sanders did:

As of this writing, however, not a single Republican Presidential candidate has made any public statements about the incident.
