The international anti-abortion advocacy organization Human Life International announced recently that it will be focusing its efforts on “five primary constituencies: Hispanic Americans, Catholic families, college students, clergy and educators, and the medical community.”
HLI is the “world’s largest international pro-life organization and has affiliates and associates in over 100 countries on six continents.”
The group recently revamped its website, prochoiceviolence.com — a site it says “provides extensive research on the surprising amount of violence perpetrated by abortionists and the proponents of ‘choice,’ compared to the relatively few violent crimes committed by ‘pro-life’ advocates.”
The site is mostly a collection of random acts of crime the group links to the “pro-choice movement.” The website blames “pro-choicers” for “incidents of ‘pro-choice’ violence and lawbreaking, from mass murder, rape, arson, cannibalism, kidnapping and maiming to cheating in sports events, animal neglect, and cruelty, indecent exposure, child sexual molestation, and bank robbery.”
The group also announced that Arland Nichols is “taking the helm of HLI America, Human Life International’s (HLI’s) primary outreach to its home nation.” The group is using this new appointment as an impetus to focus its efforts on certain communities.
According to the group’s recent press release: ”Nichols has developed and begun implementing a program for HLI America that will focus on outreach and education to five primary constituencies: Hispanic Americans, Catholic families, college students, clergy and educators, and the medical community. Among the programs to reach these groups will be conferences, Spanish-language life, and family courses, and young scholar and fellow initiatives.”
Recently, a billboard campaign was launched by an anti-abortion rights group targeting the Los Angeles Latino community. The billboards were eventually forced to come down.
