This seems kind of nuts to me. OK. More than kind of nuts. This is some eye-popping crazy right here.
Senator Patrick Leahy is supposedly asking Supreme Court Justice nominee Neil Gorsuch a question but as tends to happen during these things, no question seems to be coming, just a lot of grandstanding.
But Leahy, while trying to warn Gorsuch about the “dark days” before abortion was legal, waxes about not wanting to ever again be forced to prosecute abortionists like the former abortionist for Auschwitz who used to abort babies in the wombs of mothers who’d been raped by Nazis. Leahy tells of a time when he was forced to prosecute an abortionist, who had been trained by Nazis, simply because he was aborting babies in the U.S. and Canada.
Yup. We wouldn’t want to return to the “dark days” when Nazi abortionists roamed around America and Canada illegally aborting babies and could be prosecuted, would we? As far as I can make out here, Senator Leahy wants us to sympathize with the Auschwitz abortionist? And what he’s arguing here is that what this abortionist was doing in Auschwitz should be legal here. Is that really something he wants to argue?
I can’t help but think it’s telling that even Leahy links abortion with Auschwitz. Maybe some inkling of grace? Or maybe just a senior moment
