The Washington Times reports on the mad props one abortionist is giving another. But he may have gotten a wee bit carried away if you ask me:
Nebraska abortion doctor LeRoy Carhart called on the federal government Monday to treat all activities by “anti-choice domestic terrorists” as hate crimes after last week’s fatal shooting of Dr. George Tiller.
“This is the equivalent of Martin Luther King being assassinated,” he said of the killing of one of the nation’s best known late-term abortion doctors. “This is the equivalent of Pearl Harbor, the sinking of the Lusitania and any other major historic event where we’ve tolerated the intolerable for too long.”
Yeah, I see the similarities. Whereas Martin Luther King peaceably sought rights for the rights of the oppressed, Dr. Tiller violently ripped babies limb from limb. I totally see the similarities. It’s actually kind of spooky how similar they are, right?
Carhart then makes another equivalence between the burning crosses of the KKK and the crosses pro-lifers place to commemorate the murder of millions of babies.
“I think there is absolutely no difference in putting a cross in front of a person’s home because of what race they belong to than there is putting a cross in front of our homes because we do abortions,” he said.
Pro-life protesters had put crosses in front of Dr. Tiller’s Wichita, Kan. clinic, he said, adding that he was one of three physicians who rotated in every three weeks to assist in providing late-term abortions.
I totally see that one too. Burning crosses on people’s lawns to tell them that you’re going to kill them is almost exactly like commemorating in a public way the death of thousands of babies.
This is so predictable. To the left, everyone on the right is a Nazi and everyone of the left is Martin Luther King no matter what actions they take. As outraged as I can get over the stupid words that come out of Carhart’s mouth, it pales in comparison to the disgust I feel over what he actually does for a living.
Can you imagine doing what he does for a living for money?
But I think Dr. Alveda King’s response, Pastoral Associate of Priests for Life and niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., at Priests for Life is much better:
“For LeRoy Carhart to mention the murder of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., who worked through peaceful and non-violent means, in the same breath with that of George Tiller, whose work ended peace and brought violence to babies in the womb, is offensive beyond belief,” said Dr. King. “The analogy is just wrong.”
