When you read something you don’t like, how do you respond? Most people either ignore it or try and come up with a counter argument. Christopher M. Thompson isn’t most people.

Thompson repeatedly called the group’s office, each time promising violence. Operation Rescue released a statement about the incident, and it included a voicemail that Thompson had left.
“I’m gonna rape your daughter and I’m gonna kill your family,” he said on the recording.
