Mark Crutcher, the founder of Denton's Life Dynamics, is famous for using clever (i.e. underhanded) strategies in his fight to end abortion. But his new venture, which debuted this weekend at Dallas' March for Life, is quite direct.
Dubbed Bikers for Life, the organization aims to use motorcycles to keep women from terminating their pregnancies.
You might wonder what a Harley has to do with the abortion debate. The answer is nothing, but Crutcher speculates that the biking community is "pretty overwhelmingly pro-life" and will probably be eager to serve as "reinforcement troops for picketers."
Mainly, though, biker's are intimidating, which they'll need to be if the organization is going to accomplish its goal:
The mission is to put bikers in front of EVERY abortion clinic in America on EVERY killing day until EVERY one of them is closed. We are going to send a message to the people who run these places that, as long as they are butchering these helpless children, Bikers for Life is not going away.
So, when you see a bunch of motorcycles swarming around your local abortion clinic, you know they're on a "ride for the unborn."
