When it's a pro-abortion activist, though, all she gets is probation!
Linda Meek, the director of the Reproductive Services abortion center, pleaded guilty in October to charges of making false or misleading statements after telling police she supposedly found a bomb at the facility.This is a rather striking example of two more general trends:
Meek reported on August 13 that a bomb had been placed in a trash receptacle, but she told the court in October she purchased an egg timer and placed that in a trash bin and called the local police to report a bomb scare. Officials took the threat seriously and the abortion center and a building adjacent to it were evacuated.
KJRH indicates Meek was sentenced today to five years prohabion due to her role in the incedent.
1) Abortion advocates painting the pro-life movement as extremist or violent. They are NOT above falsifying information to do it.
2) Abortion advocates not meeting justice. Operation Rescue, in a recent bulletin on cases to watch in 2011, reports that abortion worker Belkis Gonzalez has still not been brought to justice on a post-natal murder that took place over four years ago!
In 2006, Florida’s Belkis Gonzalez, an unlicensed abortion clinic worker, attended the birth of baby Shanice Denise Osbourne, who was born at a Hialeah abortion clinic after a failed abortion attempt. Gonzalez then cut the baby’s umbilical cord, shoved her writhing body into a plastic bag, and tossed her body on the roof of the abortion clinic. After a lengthy investigation, pro-life pressure finally brought criminal charges against Gonzalez in March of 2009 for the unlicensed practice of medicine and evidence tampering. Since then, the case has languished. Every month a hearing is scheduled and every month the hearing is continued. It is long past time for this case to go to trial.
