Pro-abortion fanatics sometimes say, "What gives these anti-choicers the right to deny women their constitutional rights by illegally blocking clinics?"
Let's look at who these people are that abortion enthusiasts find fault with. They aren't the kind of folks you see on Cops or America's Most Wanted. They're on the PTA, they pay their taxes, they make their kids do their homework. These are not people with long "rap sheets." They're ordinary, law-abiding citizens.
The question is, how far do you carry respect for the law? Martin Luther King, Jr., who was arrested 133 times for civil disobedience, once said, "An individual who breaks a law that conscience tells him is unjust, and who willingly accepts the penalty of imprisonment in order to arouse the conscience of the community over its injustice, is in reality expressing the highest respect for the law."
History has shown that the law is sometimes wrong. In those cases, citizens don't have a right to act, they have a responsibility to do so. America's Founding Fathers were each breaking a law that was punishable by death--treason. The people who operated the Underground Railroad, sneaking slaves out of the South to freedom in the North, were also breaking the law. Remember, at that point white Americans had a constitutional right to own slaves.
Whether you agree or disagree with those moms and dads and kids outside the abortion mills, you have to respect them: they are putting everything they have on the line. And they're doing it not for themselves, but for unborn children scheduled to die, and for women they don't even know who are at risk of being maimed, killed, or raped inside an abortion clinic. I suggest that before you judge these people, you look at what's motivating them to do what they're doing.
