Susan from California BS: Farewell to an anti-abortionist (273* d) RE: BS: Farewell to an anti-abortionist 03 Sep 03


I am pro choice and anti death penalty and it makes me mad every time the govt kills someone for me, without exception. Someone asked up there who Paul Hill was. He was a virulently anti-choice man who murdered an abortion provider.

Some say that being pro choice and anti death penalty is inconsistent. I don't believe that it is. I am pro choice because there is no way to prove that what I believe (that life begins at conception) is the truth. Since the time when life begins cannot be proven, it is a decision best left to women in consultation with their doctors and their spiritual advisors. But Paul Hill was clearly alive, and I for one, am saddened by the loss. Killing someone for killing someone else makes about as much sense to me as a parent who smacks "Johnny" for hitting his sibling.
