Pro-abortion activists have struck again. This time, members of the group reportedly vandalized the home of Personhood USA leaders Keith and Jennifer Mason.
In the middle of the night, a large rock was heaved through the double-paned glass of the Masons' front door, scattering glass throughout their living room and across the front porch. The broken glass also covered their children's toys and items for their new baby.
The Masons believe pro-abortion vandals also spray painted coat hangers and vulgarity in large letters on the front and sides of their house.
The attack came after an article profiling the pro-life leaders appeared in Newsweek magazine and online at The Daily Beast.
"The article does state that we have three small children, and that my wife is due to deliver our fourth child very soon," says Keith Mason, president of Personhood USA.
"It is shocking to consider that someone would be so cruel and heartless to attack a home with a pregnant woman and small children inside," he continues. "Apparently, the pro-choice crowd has no more compassion for born children than they do for the preborn."
The Newsweek article profiled the Masons and their work to champion the personhood rights of every human being. Personhood USA reports that the Daily Beast's audience took exception to the Mason’s pro-life beliefs, which resulted in several physical threats posted in the comments beneath the article. After viewing these threats, one reader tracked down the Mason's home address and posted it in the comment section.
"Our reaction is one of puzzlement. What kind of person would terrorize the home of a family with young, innocent children inside? We're left wondering what these abortion fanatics hoped to accomplish," says Mason.
A few days after the attack, dedicated pro-life volunteer Everett Stadig was assaulted while petitioning for Colorado's personhood initiative and suffered several injuries, including a broken hip that required surgery.
Mason says the hateful attacks are uncalled for and have renewed his resolve to press forward. He sees it as a great testimony that even as Stadig recuperates in the hospital he is undeterred, even asking hospital staff and visitors for their signatures on his personhood petition.
Says Mason, "We are all following his example, pressing forward despite hardships, determined to continue to defend the lives of women and babies—all of whom deserve better than abortion."
Judie Brown, president of American Life League, says those who oppose the total protection of the innocent preborn child always stoop to tactics involving cunning and deception, but this latest direct physical attack on the home of the Mason family is beyond the pale.
"We stand with the Masons in their dedication to the principle that all human beings-born and preborn-are created equal," Brown says. "It is our fervent hope that those who defaced the Mason home will be brought to justice swiftly. Please join us in praying for the Mason family."
