A pro-life advocate was among the victims who were killed during a mass shooting Wednesday in San Bernadino.
The Live Action blog indicates that pro-lifer Nicholas “Michael” Thalasinos was one of 14 people who were shot and killed in what authorities are now confirming was a terrorist attack. Twenty-one others were injured in the tragic shooting.
Juda Myers, founder of the pro-life organization Choices4Life, told Live Action that Thalasinos was a “prayer warrior for Choices4Life.” Myers said he also considered becoming a board member of their organization, which works to restore honor and dignity to women and children of rape conception.
“He was an awesome man of God,” she told Live Action.
Some speculated that Thalasinos may have been targeted because of comments he made online about Islam and his support of Israel, according to the report.
A GoFundMe page has been set up for the victim’s family here. Photos indicate that he was married.
Thalasinos is the second pro-life advocate who has been killed in mass shootings within the past week.

Pro-life police officer Garrett Swasey also was gunned down in a mass shooting around a Colorado Springs Planned Parenthood abortion clinic last week. LifeNews reported that Swasey opposed abortion and served as a co-pastor at his church.
Authorities have not yet released a motive for the Colorado Springs shooting, which claimed the lives of three people, including Swasey, and injured nine others.
Immediately after the San Bernadino attacks, several mainstream news outlets tried to link the terrorist attack to the pro-life movement by bringing up the California city’s Planned Parenthood – even though it was totally irrelevant to the terrorism.
The FBI announced that it is officially investigating the California attack as an act of terrorism.
