protest outside Planned ParenthoodColorado authorities are digging into the latest threat against the safety of pro-lifers in that state.

OneNewsNow talked with Bob Enyart, a spokesman for Colorado Right to Life, who says threats against pro-lifers aren't rare – and they take each one seriously. "There is a pro-choice terrorist, Ted Schulman, who is right now in federal prison who threatened one of our members, Ken Scott, and other pro-life leaders," he begins.

Included among those who were threatened are Operation Rescue's Troy Newman and Cheryl Sullenger, he notes.

Enyart says Colorado pro-lifers also have a number of restraining orders against pro-abortion people because of threats made to them.

In addition, he points to "a Democrat operative" in Colorado, William Costello. "He was tied in with party leadership, and he not only threatened but then assaulted a senior citizen who was getting personhood [petition] signatures," he describes. "... The police arrested him, took his DNA, and it turned out that [Costello] was guilty of being a serial rapist."

During his trial, Costello committed suicide.

In the latest incident, Fern Roberta DeLise is alleged to have threatened – during a phone call to Planned Parenthood – to go to a Republican meeting and start shooting people. Police are currently investigating the incident and in search of a motive.

Enyart says the threatening environment indicates a lot of people are angry because pro-lifers want to save the lives of unborn children – and that, he says, is why each threat is turned over to police.
