I haven’t said anything here about the huge flap over the murder of the notorious late-term abortionist, Dr. George Tiller. Really, I had nothing to add that hadn’t already been said (and said better than I could have) by many, many others. Of course “vigilante” justice is wrong and contrary to God’s law. Rather than trying to take our own vengeance against those who get away with murder, we are to submit to God, crying out to Him to bring justice, praying and singing imprecatory psalms against those who oppress (and kill) the innocent. So, yes, of course, we can’t condone Dr. Tiller’s killer any more than we can condone Dr. Tiller’s method of becoming rich and famous.
But Ann Coulter nailed a point in her recent column that I did want to make — but since she has pretty much nailed it flush to the board, I can just quote her:
For years, we’ve had to hear about the grave threat that Americans might overreact to a terrorist attack committed by 19 Muslims shouting “Allahu akbar” as they flew commercial jets into American skyscrapers. That would be the equivalent of 19 pro-lifers shouting “Abortion kills a beating heart!” as they gunned down thousands of innocent citizens in Wichita, Kan. Why aren’t liberals rushing to assure us this time that “most pro-lifers are peaceful”? Unlike Muslims, pro-lifers actually are peaceful.
According to recent polling, a majority of Americans oppose abortion — which is consistent with liberals’ hysterical refusal to allow us to vote on the subject. In a country with approximately 150 million pro-lifers, five abortionists have been killed since Roe v. Wade.
In that same 36 years, more than 49 million babies have been killed by abortionists. Let’s recap that halftime score, sports fans: 49 million to five.
Meanwhile, fewer than 2 million Muslims live in America and, while Muslims are less murderous than abortionists, I’m fairly certain they’ve killed more than five people in the United States in the last 36 years. For some reason, the number “3,000” keeps popping into my head.
So in a country that is more than 50 percent pro-life — and 80 percent opposed to the late-term abortions of the sort performed by Tiller — only five abortionists have been killed. And in a country that is less than 0.5 percent Muslim, several dozen Muslims have killed thousands of Americans.
But the killing of about one abortionist per decade leads liberals to condemn the entire pro-life movement as “domestic terrorists.” At least liberals have finally found some terrorists they’d like to send to Guantanamo.
The hypocrisy of the present administration and their public relations department (the major media) is at gag level. It’s nice that someone notices.
