A Pennsylvania woman has been charged with making threats to a pro-life legislator specifically because he opposes abortion. The woman in question is now awaiting a district court preliminary hearing after having been charged by authorities with leaving threatening, vulgar messages at state Rep. Mario Scavello’s Pocono Township office.
According to news reports, Sharon Marie Manning, 47, stands accused of leaving harassing and life-threatening voicemails on Representative Scavello’s office voicemail.
“With your backwards (expletive) views on abortion, you should be taken out back and shot,” Manning said in one voicemail. “You’re a (expletive) and an (expletive) and and you deserve to die.”
In a followup phone call, Manning added: “If your jackass self ever decides to run for office in New York, New Jersey or Connecticut, the women would beat you senseless themselves. And if you ever try to legislate in this country, I’ll make sure your life is a living (expletive) hell. Do you understand me? You piece of (expletive)!”
Why do I suspect that this individual is among the out-of-state abortion lovers who has given money to the Wendy Davis campaign -- and that even if she isn't, she represents the views of many of those who have donated? After all, when you have no respect for innocent human life whose only crime is having been conceived, why on earth would you feel the need to respect the lives of those who have already been born who dare to disagree with you?
