At this time, reports indicate that the shooter was inspired by ISIS. We place the blame for this atrocity squarely where it belongs: with the shooter and those who aided or abetted him. Just as it is wrong to smear the entire pro-life movement when someone claiming the "pro-life" label commits a violent act, it is wrong to paint law-abiding Muslims with a broad brush. Secular Pro-Life is proud to work peacefully alongside people of all faiths, including Islam, toward a more just society.
Finally, we urge our readers to take concrete actions to honor the memory of the victims. Be generous. If you are able, donate blood and/or funds to disaster relief groups. Give your time. Let us come together in a spirit of volunteerism like we did after 9/11.
