You are entitled to your opinion.
One less nazi as far as I am concerned.
When I first read this, part of me wondered if some liberal isn’t secretly behind this to get just the outcome you have listed. I used to not be so paranoid, until this surreal reality replaced what used to be. Interesting the timing of this, as it was recently released that according to polls a majority of Americans are anti-abortion/pro-life. Good way to discredit the movement and those beliefs - assassinate an abortionist.
“This serial-killer piece of excrement will be held up by every...”
...gun-control nut in America as proof that dangerous people (like foes of baby-killing) should not be allowed to keep and bear arms.
Obama is going to take advantage of this murder to sieze even more control over our society.
I would not even put it past them to commit this murder themselves, as an excuse to sieze power. Reichstag Fire, and all that...
I could not agree more. This will be portrayed by the media as a major crisis and an egregious attack on freedom. As Rahm puts it, "Never let a serious crisis go to waste." The net result? It will merely hasten the day when being pro-life is considered a hate crime.
What galls me most is the article. The article describes this guy as a “late term abortion provider.”
Why not label the doctor what he was, a partial birth abortion provider? The man committed infanticide, legally.
And, yes, I agree with you, this will have a bad ending for us abortion opponents.
Due to the innocuous euphemism used to describe what this doctor engaged in, there will be no sympathy for abortion foes.
My mom is a “right to choose” person. Yet, even she thinks partial birth abortion is an atrocity. Most people agree that partial birth abortion is infanticide.
Instead, the press will portray this doctor as a paragon of community spirit, family values and work ethic.
The spin already started with this article.
The fact that the deceased made his living killing babies should not make his murder any more egregious.
I'd argue that since he valued life with such disdain, that I can understand how some might take solace in the fact that we has murdered.
Actually, wouldn't this be a better argument for allowing armed security in churches?
that was my reaction exactly upon hearing it. will be used as further proof that prolifers=terrorists. Satan is upping the ante.
Someone had given them a martyr.
Who gives a damn?
Under the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances (FACE) Act signed by Bill Clinton in 1994, abortion clinics in this country are already provided an absurd level of protection that doesn't apply to any other business establishment or even a government facility.
Heck -- you could probably get a longer prison sentence for blocking access to an abortion clinic than you would get for an armed assault against a military base in this country.
