What about the unaligned? those needed to be persuaded that abortion is vile and should be made illegal? do you care what they think? rank and file Americans, those without a firm commitment to the pro-life cause, who are led to think the pro-life community is peopled by the lunatic fringe, are not likely to join it. anyone seriously hoping for abortion to be made illegal needs to care what the not yet converted think.
Darn straight. We are in a war. And in war the most important battles are fought with words, not guns.
Ofcourse I care and how we respond is important.
But we should not respond with guilt or shame nor the expectation that it makes us all guilty. It does not. One person’s actions in response to the outrageous crimes committed by Tiller is just that. We should talk about what Tiller did that created such turmoil around himself.
We should say the media smears the innocent of whole groups for the crimes of one all the time. It is hateful and ignornat of our justice system.
