Clinic Terrorist Believed Fetuses Would Thank Him In Heaven
April 13, 2016

Robert Lewis Dear, the Planned Parenthood terrorist who shot up the Colorado Springs clinic, killing three and injuring nine others, had a strange idea of what his "heroism" would bring him in the afterlife.

The man accused of fatally shooting three people at a Colorado Planned Parenthood clinic last year said he hoped that when he died fetuses in heaven would thank him for stopping more abortions, court documents showed on Monday.

Robert Lewis Dear, 57, made the comments to police after he surrendered following a shooting rampage and five-hour siege last November at the Colorado Springs clinic that also left nine others injured.

This is the kind of fevered thinking that people like the despicable David Daleiden inspire in people. As if somehow he would be greeted by legions of fetuses.

There's more, too, via CBS:

"They got 4,000 babies get aborted every day," Dear told Sallinger. "I guarantee you they had a lot of cancellations and I might have saved a thousand."

The documents give the deepest look yet into Dear's long-held and seething disdain for abortion providers.

He told police he admired Paul Hill, a former minister, who was executed in 2003 for the 1994 shootings of abortion provider Dr. John Bayard Britton and his bodyguard, a retired U.S. Air Force officer named James Herman Barrett, outside the Ladies Center in Pensacola, Florida.

Quite frankly, I think they ought to arrest David Daleiden and his funders as accessories to these murders. That blood is on their hands too.
