Accused Planned Parenthood Shooter: I Hope Unborn Kids in Heaven Thank Me

By Dustin Siggins Published on April 12, 2016

A man accused of killing three at a Colorado Planned Parenthood clinic told police he hopes “aborted fetuses” would thank him “at the gates of [H]eaven,” according to court documents released on Monday.

The documents show that Robert Dear also considered Paul Hill a hero. Hill killed abortionist Dr. John Britton and the abortionist’s bodyguard, James Barrett, in 1994, and was put to death in 2003.

In November, Dear was arrested and charged with first-degree murder and attempted murder after allegedly opening fire at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado Springs. Declaring himself to be “a warrior for the babies,” Dear has said he wanted to stop Planned Parenthood ย killing unborn children and from harvesting their body parts.

While abortion activists have declared Dear to be Exhibit A of pro-life violence, commentators across the political spectrum, as well as his lawyer, say Dear’s past and some of his court statements indicate he is not mentally stable. The results of a court-ordered mental evaluation are expected to be released later this month.
