Professor Robert P. George is Personally Opposed to the Killing of Abortionists


Here is a tactic that Saul Alinski, mentor to president Obama and author of Rules for Radicals, would endorse: ridicule. This is difficult — comedy is hard work — and does not come easy for the good-guys to use. But Dr. George pulls it off.

“I am personally opposed to killing abortionists. However, inasmuch as my personal opposition to this practice is rooted in sectarian (Catholic) religious belief in the sanctity of human life, I am unwilling to impose it on others who may, as a matter of conscience, take a different view.

Of course, I am entirely in favor of policies aimed at removing the root causes of violence against abortionists. Indeed, I would go as far as supporting mandatory one-week waiting periods, and even non-judgmental counseling, for people who are contemplating the choice of killing an abortionist.

I believe in policies that reduce the urgent need some people feel to kill abortionists while, at the same time, respecting the rights of conscience of my fellow citizens who believe that the killing of abortionists is sometimes a tragic necessity–not a good, but a lesser evil.

In short, I am moderately ‘pro-choice.'”

–Prof. Robert P. George

    Zing! This perfectly captures the tendency of abortion supporters to talk out of both sides of their mouths.

    (For example, Hillary Clinton admitted that she does not know the precise moment that a fetus “becomes” human and simultaneously asserted the right of a woman to kill that fetus — which might be human. Also, some people have said that abortion is morally acceptable, yet it should be “safe, legal and rare.” If abortion is morally acceptable, then why should it be rare?)
