Denise McAllister, Fox News guest and contributor to news site PJ Media, says she and her family have received death threats after she tweeted a pro-life statement.
McAllister says she has been receiving rape and murder threats after she tweeted that “the root of abortion hysteria is women's unhinged desire for irresponsible sex. Sex is their god. Abortion is their sacrament. It's abhorrent as women have flung themselves from the heights of being the world's civilized force to the muck and mire of dehumanizing depravity."
She says people began to send her threats to her private inbox.
"They are threats outside of Twitter, stating they know where I live," McAllister told JP Media. "Threats of rape and strangling.”
"My children are very frightened," she added.
This week, she told her followers she would be taking a break from social media.
“Due to threats against my life, my family is asking that I stay off social media until the situation is resolved,” she said. “I don’t want to, but I need to respect their wishes at this time. I hope to return soon. Keep up the good fight, my friends.”
McAllister also added that she is working with police and her home is under police surveillance.
"I am facing legit death & rape threats because I have dared to call out women who are hysterical about abortion and to challenge them to be responsible and not to elevate sex to the point that they're willing to kill human life to avoid their responsibilities," McAllister said. "How sick is that?"
McAllister isn’t the first blogger to receive threats for her comments.
Earlier this year, Elizabeth Johnston, the Activist Mommy, received threats over her conservative videos, such as one threat that said: “I will find Activist Mommy and burn whoever runs it alive.”
She said Facebook claimed that the threats didn’t violate their community standards.
