Yes, Barbara Simpson, there probably was a day when someone "would take a guy like me out in an alley and beat me beyond whatever because they thought I deserved it." There was also a day when women would die from the abortions they had in back alleys because their individual and legal rights were not respected. You and your other "Pro-Life" allies may pine for those days, but as long as I draw breath, as long I am still standing, I will fight you with every fiber of my being.
And if some moron you whipped up into a frenzy does beat me or does kill me as so many who think like you have wished in this past week, I feel secure in guaranteeing you this: thousands will take my place. You and your ilk cannot win here and you will not; not when right and reason are on the side of the good.
