Psychiatrist on MSNBC: Colorado Springs Shooting Should Be Seen in Context of the War on Women


Vanderbilt University psychiatrist, sociologist and director of the Center for Medicine, Health and Society Dr. Jonathan Metzl, who specializes in gun violence, reacted Saturday on MSNBC to the shooting Friday in Colorado Springs.

According to Metzl, the shooting at the Planned Parenthood clinic should be seen in the context “that is an issue of the war on women and women’s rights.”

“The news again got dominated by an increasing familiar form of white terrorism in which people are literally terrorized beyond the realm of this. I know what’s going to happen now, which is that we’re going to have a story about the mental health of the person. It’s going to locate it on a particular issue. I have to say, even though I know there are many complicated issues with this person’s biography that are important to find out, that we really do need to see this as a bigger contextual problem that is an issue of the war on women and women’s rights.”
