Huckabee Calls Planned Parenthood Shootings ‘Domestic Terrorism’

Pro-lifers who oppose Planned Parenthood do not “condone” last week’s shootings at one of the organization’s clinics, Mike Huckabee stressed on Sunday.

The former Arkansas governor, who is seeking the Republican presidential nomination, called the incident “domestic terrorism” during an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union.”

Referring to the alleged gunman, Huckabee said: “What he did is absolutely abominable, especially to us in the pro-life movement, because there’s nothing about any of us that would condone or in any way look the other way on something like this.”

The candidate argued that anti-abortion advocates’ response to the shootings has been much differently than how John Kerry reacted to terrorist attacks in France. The secretary of state remarked that there was some “rationale” for the murders earlier this year at the Charlie Hebdo offices in Paris while the ISIS militants who recently killed 130 people in the city were “random” in selecting their victims.

“We’re not going to have the kind of language that you heard from John Kerry where he talked about legitimizing or rationalizing terrorist actions,” Huckabee said. “There’s no legitimizing, there’s no rationalizing. It was mass murder. It was absolutely unfathomable. And there’s no excuse for killing other people, whether it’s happening inside the Planned Parenthood headquarters, inside their clinics where many millions of babies die, or whether it’s people attacking Planned Parenthood.”
