What follows is a slightly edited version of something I posted elsewhere earlier today:
As a libertarian, I believe very strongly that all human beings have the God-given right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. That especially includes those who exist, but who are not yet born into this world, and cannot speak for themselves.
This nation, under the bogus guise of “human rights,” and (let’s be honest here) as a matter of shallow, selfish convenience, has deprived that right to over 40 million of its own citizens. Any nation that would willingly commit genocide at that level, against its very own citizens, has a profoundly corrupt soul.
As I see it, there are only two acceptable reasons for taking the life of another human being. One is in defense of oneself, one’s family or some other innocent person. The other is in a time of war. Any other time, barring a tragic accident, is murder.
I realize that there are times when terminating a human pregnancy is necessary, but what Tiller was doing was outright infanticide. It matters not if the birth mothers were depressed.
Big deal. I get depressed sometimes, to, but I don’t go out and kill an innocent child over it.
As I see it, Tiller’s “profession” was in no way different than what Joseph Mengele was doing in Germany in the 1930s and 40s. Many in Germany supported what Mengele was doing, and sadly, far many more here in America support what Tiller did.
How does that make us any better than the NAZIs, or the Japanese, for that matter, who were themselves conducting hideous medical experiments on the Chinese?
Yes, what Roeder did was wrong, very wrong, but as we said back in the ‘90s, shit happens. The law provides a mechanism to deal with these situations, and it will do so here.
At the end of the day, it changes nothing. Abortion is still murder. It’s as simple as that. The fact that it may be legal matters not at all, and I am not interested in hearing whatever lies those who support this hideous procedure have conjured up to convince themselves that it is okay to take the lives of unborn human beings.
Remember, the NAZIs carried out over 11 million "post-natal" abortions. We executed a lot of those who participated in the slaughter after the war.
We currently live in a devolving, sick, twisted society-one in which we who support the right to life for our fellow human beings, and who happen to love our country, and revere its founding document, are considered extremists, if not outright terrorists, by not only our own government, but perhaps even a majority of our fellow citizens.
I honestly do not believe this society, or this nation, has much time left.
In what time we do have left, I’ll be damned if I am going to allow myself to be coerced, or otherwise intimidated into silence on any issue, and if Barack Hussein Obama, the SCM*, and the DHS don’t like it?
BTW, I was adopted at the age of four weeks in 1964. I was lucky. Had I been a little later coming along, I very well could have wound up like this.
