Planned Parenthood is indicating its critics caused the negative environment that resulted in the shooting of its clinic:
November 30, 2015
(CNSNews.com) – Politicians and others who speak about what taxpayer-supported Planned Parenthood does are contributing to a “negative environment” that encourages some people to target the abortion provider, a Planned Parenthood executive said on Sunday.
“We’ve experienced so much hateful language, hateful speech,” Planned Parenthood Rocky Mountain CEO Vicki Cowart told ABC’s “This Week” with Martha Raddatz. “Such a negative environment has been created around the work that Planned Parenthood does, around the idea of safe and legal abortion.
“And we’ve seen that across the country from all sorts of speakers in the last few months. I can’t believe that this isn’t contributing to some folks, mentally unwell or not, thinking that it’s OK to target Planned Parenthood or to target abortion providers.” …
Cowart spoke two days after an apparently unstable man shot and killed three people and injured nine others at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado Springs.
A law enforcement official told the Associated Press that the suspect, 57-year-old Richard Lewis Dear, said “no more baby parts” after he surrendered to police.http://www.cnsnews.com/news/article/susan-jones/planned-parenthood-exec-blames-hateful-language-hateful-speech
Killing unborn babies is immoral and selling their body parts is illegal.
In the past, Planned Parenthood admitted that its clinics can make a fair amount of income selling baby parts:

The Center for Medical Progress has released its tenth video, investigating Planned Parenthood’s illegal sale of aborted baby body parts. Shocking video footage released today shows top Planned Parenthood executives discussing the sales of baby body parts, saying that it is a “valid exchange”, and that clinics can make “a fair amount of income” doing it.
The video features multiple Planned Parenthood executives: Dr. Carolyn Westhoff, Senior Medical Advisor; Dr. Vanessa Cullins, Vice President for External Medical Affairs; and Deborah VanDerhei, National Director for the Consortium of Abortion Providers (CAPS).
Westhoff bemoans the possible P.R. nightmare that would be unleashed if the public were to find out about their illegal activities, while VanDerhei discusses payments for the body parts as “donation for remuneration.”
VanDerhei also is told that they can receive around $100 for each “specimen,” and remarks that people can make “a fair amount of income” through this. Vanessa Russo, Compliance Program Administrator for Planned Parenthood Keystone in Pennsylvania, is also featured, calling the selling of aborted babies’ body parts a “valid exchange,” despite the fact that purchases of human fetal tissue is a felony. And Cullins talks about the need to keep their illegal activity quiet, saying that it could “destroy” the organization.http://liveactionnews.org/breaking-planned-parenthood-admits-fair-amount-income-selling-aborted-baby-parts/
While I do not condone the shooting, and condemned it online (seeDemonstrations in Chicago, Shooting in Colorado Springs, Civil Unrest in the USA), Planned Parenthood should not be blaming people who report about their immoral and murderous practices as the cause of the shooting.
The Bible repeatedly warns against shedding innocent blood:
19 So you shall put away the guilt of innocent blood from among you when you do what is right in the sight of the LORD (Deuteronomy 21:9).
16 These six things the LORD hates, Yes, seven are an abomination to Him: 17 A proud look, A lying tongue,Hands that shed innocent blood, 18 A heart that devises wicked plans, Feet that are swift in running to evil, 19 A false witness who speaks lies, And one who sows discord among brethren (Proverbs 6:16-19).
7 Their feet run to evil, And they make haste to shed innocent blood; Their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity; Wasting and destruction are in their paths. 8 The way of peace they have not known, And there is no justice in their ways; They have made themselves crooked paths; Whoever takes that way shall not know peace (Isaiah 59:7-8).
3 Thus says the LORD: “Execute judgment and righteousness, and deliver the plundered out of the hand of the oppressor. Do no wrong and do no violence to the stranger, the fatherless, or the widow, nor shed innocent blood in this place (Jeremiah 22:3).
17 “Yet your eyes and your heart are for nothing but your covetousness, For shedding innocent blood, And practicing oppression and violence” (Jeremiah 22:17).
Babies are innocent. Killing them is the shedding of innocent blood. It perhaps should be mentioned that American politicians like Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton have regularly defended Planned Parenthood.
Notice the following from the Bible:
172 My tongue shall speak of Your word, For all Your commandments are righteousness (Psalm 119:172).
34 Righteousness exalts a nation, But sin is a reproach to any people (Proverbs 14:34).
Killing babies through abortion is not righteous. It is a reproach to nations that allow and encourage it...
