Demand for Retraction of Pro-Life Extremist Label

"Demand for Retraction

The Department of Homeland Security

As a pro-life citizen of the United States of America, I am gravely concerned by the inflammatory statements within the Department’s newly-released warning entitled: “Rightwing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment.”

To label pro-lifers as “rightwing extremists” and “domestic terrorists” is incorrect as a matter of law and wrong as a matter of policy. This type of unconstitutional language targets peace-loving, pro-American citizens of the United States and their fundamental First Amendment rights.

I respectfully demand an immediate and full retraction. It’s time to target the REAL terrorists — focus your attention on rooting out those people who are bent on causing harm to our country and REMOVE the pro-life community from this warning."
