The FBI had warned two months in advance regarding the Planned Parenthood Clinic attack in Colorado Springs informs Jeff Pegues. Meanwhile, the NYCPD has announced that critical response vehicles were placed at Planned Parenthood clinics in the city. The concern about attacks on reproductive health care centers has become an anxiety for law enforcement agencies for a while now especially Planned Parenthood clinics in various parts of the country. The FBI released its first intelligence report in September to the law enforcement agencies regarding a possible attack.
The attack came in the wake of the Congress discussing Planned Parenthood funding and discussing videos from the Center for Medical Progress on the harvesting of fetal tissues of abortions. The bulletin by the intelligence contained, “lone offenders using tactics of arsons and threats all of which are typical of the pro-life extremist movement.” During this period, there were nine suspicious incidents across seven states and also the District of Columbia.
In another incident that happened in August, a vehicle that belonged to the New Orleans Planned Parenthood security guard was set on fire after pouring gasoline on it. This was not all another incident in Aurora, Colorado in July saw an unknown miscreant setting ablaze the entrance of Planned Parenthood facility pouring gasoline at the entrance.
Meanwhile it was reported that while the suspect Robert Lewis Dear was taken away by the police, he was seen warning officers on “no more baby parts.” This was the reflection of the GOP presidential candidate and other conservative leaders since the secret videotapes of procurement of fetal tissues for medical research have been out. In a state by Dawn Laguens, Executive Vice president of Planned Parenthood Federation said that instead of preventing such attacks in the future, the candidates are blocking women from taking preventive health care at the clinic.
Despite his forceful revelation, Robert Lewis Dear is a seldom speaker in the rural Colorado from where he comes from. His words have gained prominence with the police trying to determine his motive for the shootout at the Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado Springs that left three people dead. Witnesses say that the gunman was opposed to abortion.
