Violence is Never the Answer

James Pouillon, a 63-year-old man from Owosso County in Michigan, was shot and killed on Friday morning while protesting abortion across from a high school in Owosso. According to authorities, Pouillon was killed by Harlan Drake, 33, who drove up to him in a truck and opened fire. Drake is also accused of killing a local business owner earlier that day.

The shooting of James Pouillon is, as President Obama put it in a statement, “deplorable.” Although it is still unknown whether the shooting of Pouillon came about from his status as an anti-choice protester, the WLP would like to stress that we condemn all forms of violence, and that violence is never an acceptable response to philosophical or political disagreements.
