Reader: Planned Parenthood birth control stops more abortions than protesters ever will

Yesterday, we reported about a pair of guilty verdicts against Jo Scott in relation to Colorado's bubble law, which is meant to prevent anti-abortion protesters from harassing clinic patients.

In the post, we quoted Scott from a 2008 interview talking about how she's a hero for saving lives. But one reader takes a very different view.

Sow-reap writes:

Planned Parenthood prevents more abortions in an hour than Jo Scott will over the course of her entire life. Through low-cost birth control.

When she protests, people who would otherwise go there for birth control are dissuaded from getting birth control because they'd have suffer Jo Scott's attacks, then they have unwanted pregnancies.

Jo Scott will answer to God for causing those abortions.
