    ... is that only men can come to Fight Club.  

    It's uncanny to me how well that book and movie name the underlying gender/violence pathology built into our culture-- Western civilization in general and the modern U.S. in particular.

    The domestic terrorists are basking in their own lethal little Fight Club circle.  It validates them, and it really doesn't ever occur to them that their validation shouldn't come at the expense of other people's lives.

      Thank you Kate for your comment from your own first hand experience with anti-abortionists. (Is anyone 'pro-abortion?')

      That explains the women. I remember when birth control was an issue and it always seemed that the women past menopause were the most vociferous against it.

      My comment was actually referring to the men. They all look like losers to me using their spare time to interfere in the reproductive rights of women they don't even know. Fired up by a harsh vengeance mentality straight out of the most strident pages of the old testament. And they attack women at their most vulnerable: pregnant and emotionally upset. It's like they couldn't get afford a hunting license so they take up the hobby of opposing abortion.

      Where I live, abortion is legal, for the health of the mother done in hospitals. And yet a Vancouver doctor was shot in his home while having breakfast.

      The bullets, thought to have come from an AK-47 assault rifle in the street, passed through a glass patio door. Dr Romalis was struck once in the upper left thigh; he lost a lot of blood and underwent eight hours of emergency surgery. He is now recovering. 1994

      How could this ever be justified?

      This above all: to thine own self be true...-WS
