Antichoice or pro-gun, same nasty tactics

I learned recently that gun control opponents sign up outspoken survivors of murder victims for subscriptions to Guns & Ammo.  A disturbingly similar tactic was used against me in the early 1980s when I was a clinic guard; I received numerous ostensibly caring Christmas cards and letters from the antichoice crowd.   Some rambled; a few contained thinly veiled threats.  No one in those pre-Internet days breathed a word as to how they managed to get my home address.
So we see that those miscreants against abortion or gun control are not merely cut from the same cloth, they are likely the same people.  
And if they have so very much time on their hands (to hound those of us who understand things differently), why is it they do not offer the bereaved support, or at least a shoulder to cry on, or take under their wing not just embryos, but every child who is under-parented, the teens who foolishly became parents, the women who miscarry, and all the overwhelmed and struggling poor who are heads of families?  Why aren’t they supporting every family with a child who is profundly disabled?
If they were humbly doing the Lord’s work, as they are wont to claim, they surely would.  
Wouldn’t they?
