Joe Doakes from Como Park emails:
Baby killers used to tell pro-lifers “If you don’t want an abortion, don’t have one.” It was considered a crushing rejoinder even though it put personal liberty over loss of innocent life. The implication was that a mother taking action to kill her child was so obviously moral that it was beyond reproach.
Seems to me that line could be re-cycled by the Second Amendment crowd: “If you don’t want to carry a firearm, then don’t.” I wonder if Liberals would consider my decision to take action to Prevent someone from killing my child, to be equally valid?
If the left approached this issue (or most others) from a logical position…
…well, it’s a moot question, isn’t it?
