MEWilliams_Bio-75x75 Writing for Salon Magazine – Mary Elizabeth Williams gives a very stern warning to pro-choicers who assault and steal from “anti-abortion protesters.”

Lets tell the back story.

On March 4, 2014 two young pro-life women with the group Survivors of the Abortion Holocaust led a pro-life outreach at UC Santa Barbara.

Miller then took the sign into an elevator, where she repeatedly pushed, and even pulled the victim, who was attempting to hold the elevator doors open until police arrived, according to members of Survivors.

A video of the incident was posted online and soon the media was a buzz with the pro-choice intolerance:

Back to Mary Elizabeth Williams – she writes, “Ignoring the trolls – it’s not just good advice online. It’s indispensable in real life too. You see, this should have been a slam dunk. Instead, we have a tale in which radical anti-choice protesters wind up being depicted in the media as good guys.”

According to Mary Elizabeth Williams, “Accounts vary as to what exactly happened when the Christian group descended on UCSB earlier this month, but according to 21-year-old Joan Short, she and her 16-year-old sister Thrin were displaying three large signs and handing out literature when Dr. Mireille Miller-Young approached them, and a heated exchange ensued. Miller-Young allegedly then led a group of students in a chant of “Tear down the sign! Tear down the sign!” before taking one of the banners away from the girls and walking away. What follows in the video the “Survivors” group has released shows the professor and two other females walking into a building with a very large sign that appears to depict a bloody fetus. When the girls call her a thief, she yells back, “I may be a thief but you’re a terrorist.”

Now – this is the same Mary Elizabeth Williams who once wrote an article for Salon entitled “So What If Abortion Ends A Life“. Quoting the article and Ms. Williams, “I know that throughout my own pregnancies, I never wavered for a moment in the belief that I was carrying a human life inside of me. I believe that’s what a fetus is: a human life. And that doesn’t make me one iota less solidly pro-choice…Here’s the complicated reality in which we live: All life is not equal. That’s a difficult thing for liberals like me to talk about, lest we wind up looking like death-panel-loving, kill-your-grandma-and-your-precious-baby storm troopers. Yet a fetus can be a human life without having the same rights as the woman in whose body it resides. She’s the boss. Her life and what is right for her circumstances and her health should automatically trump the rights of the non-autonomous entity inside of her. Always. When we on the pro-choice side get cagey around the life question, it makes us illogically contradictory.”

Moving back to the violent professor Mary Elizabeth Wiliams with no concept of morality appears to get some morality when she writes:

“These antiabortion groups are sneaky and disruptive and they fully count on provoking an emotional response and playing victim when they get one. When it happens, they have a field day. So here’s a reminder: don’t do it. Don’t take their stuff. It’s called stealing, and you’re going to have a hard time convincing anybody otherwise. Don’t push them. Don’t touch them at all. If they’re trespassing, have them removed. If they’re creating a disturbance, call a cop. But don’t give them ammunition.”

Mary Elizabeth Williams ends her tirade with this sentence, “This week, Michigan’s “rape insurance” law has gone into effect. Clinics are closing. New laws are trying to impose longer waiting times for women before letting them obtain abortions. Our reproductive rights are being chipped away in this country. We are in a full-blown crisis. And the last thing on earth we need right now is to look like we’re the out of control ones here.”

So there you have it people. Rather than declare the right to protest, free speech, the excitement that young women would be counter-cultural and stand up to the establishment Professor seeking to censor them, the “Right to choose” to speak your own mind without Government or shall we say School interference, feminist Mary Elizabeth Williams appears angry – almost embarrassed that her side- the intolerant “pro-choice” side was exposed on national media for the hypocrites and violent people they really are.

Mary Elizabeth Williams has taken it upon herself to scold the pro-choice left in this country and to define what is and is NOT acceptable behavior – something they seem to loathe when the pro-life right does it.

Let’s recap: pushing your morality on others by by telling or in this case showing people who choose to slaughter innocent babies in the womb they are wrong is totally unacceptable. However, you ARE allowed to lecture your fellow pro-choicers about how to behave around pro-lifers so as to not “look like we’re the out of control ones here.”

Get it – or just confused?
