Question of the Day: How Does
One Oppose Abortion and
Support Executions?

Breitbart InstaBlog, by John Sexton

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 1/16/2014 2:27:02 PM

This morning National Journal writer Ron Fournier opened a big can of worms when he asked this question: (Tweet -How does one oppose abortion and support executions? Discuss.) It always surprises me that otherwise intelligent people seem to struggle with the difference between abortion and capital punishment. Fortunately there were a swarm of people willing to take Fournier up on his offer to discuss the difference. Here are a few examples: (Tweets) A couple of folks pointed out that the question is rarely turned around in the other direction:

Easy ... the baby isn´t guilty of a capital crime. The person to be executed was found guilty of a capital offense by a jury of his/her peers and sentenced by a judge.

Now - if pro-abortion people were inclined to put the unborn child on trial and let a jury vote for/against abortion based on testimony of the mother ...

Then we´ll talk ...

Otherwise - it´s an apples/oranges argument.

Fournier is a weasel who has attempted to appear to move slightly to the middle while still wearing his "I Luv Obama" undershorts.

I will never believe a word that comes out of his lefty mouth. Nor waste my time reading it.

Forget apples vs. oranges...this is more like apples vs. kumquats! (or maybe Avocados) Anyway, that is a silly question. And one thing I want to mention...even if one does support the death penalty, it doesn´t mean that one supports it being carried out for any murder or other single crime. I believe it should reserved only for the worst of the worst and most heinous of crimes--especially if there are multiple violent offenses and other enhancements are included (like torture, sadistic acts, rape, etc.) and there is almost no way there could be doubt (overwhelming evidence including DNA).

#5 - in the case of a pregnancy as a result of rape, I´d be in favor of the rapist sentenced to the same punishment as the baby.

So, let´s get this straight, killing a baby who is completely innocent of any crime other than existing is on the same moral plane as John Wayne Gacy or Ted Bundy? How much dope do you have to smoke to get your brain to reach that conclusion?

When someone asks me why I support the death penalty, I ask them a simple question. "If you saw someone about to rape and murder your five year old daughter, would you kill them to prevent it?" Of course they answer yes. I then tell them they, too, are in favor of the death penalty...just before the fact. Because if someone is willing to kill to prevent a horrific crime, why would they not be in favor of death for the actual commission of a horrific crime?

Abortion on the other hand...I will only argue with someone if we can agree up front that it ends a potential human life...an innocent. If they are not willing to concede that point, there´s no reason to talk further.

The state executes criminals. Abortion is the ´choice´ of an individual. The state ahs very specific requirements before it can execute a person. The simplified version is due process which is guaranteed in the Constitution. An abortion just takes a woman´s choice to not be pregnant or have a baby. The executed criminal is given protections to reduce mistake and to insure the state acts in a manner that respects the rights of the convicted. A bay has no rights. There are significant differences in the process and rights of the executed and the aborted. So one can accept the rule of law and believe in execution by the State. And one can be opposed to abortion because it doesn’t afford the fetus the same rights of the convicted. OPne would think liberals would be all over protecting the rights of all living humans, not just the convicted.

I was asked that question by a liberal friend and just reversed the question...."How can you be against the execution of a murderer yet support the murder of millions of infants?"

I can see someone against both abortion and capital punishment or a callous person being in favor of both, for that matter, but I cannot see being in favor of murdering innocents yet allowing murderers to live.

The question should be why do people who support abortion oppose execution. Executions are rare, yet nearly 2 million babies are murdered every year. You know what a murderer is and has done, but you will never know what an aborted child could become.

I was asked that question once and I did say the yet unborn child should have the same right of protection as the convicted, there should be appeals and all. I would guess they might be about 14 before you off them, about the same amount of time the appeals process takes for the guilty.

I also got the ´unviable tissue mass´ BS, to which I replied, if carried to term, would have been human or a puppy.

Tell you what -I´ll consider giving up on executions, in favor of a punished life in prison for those who would be otherwise condemned. And in exchange, you give up on abortions with RARE exceptions of extreme health problems of mother or child, or rape or incest. Oh, and the incest/rape perpetrator MUST be named, arrested and punished not only for his crime, but be charged with the loss of the life of the child. But we won´t execute him. Deal?

When the guilty criminal is executed by having his head crushed, his brains sucked out, his arms and legs cut off, and the parts sent to the dump in a trash bag, maybe the answer to the question might be a bit more clear to some folks.

More mothers have been staying home with their children since the recession ended, but a growing number of them say that’s primarily because they can’t find a job, according to a new study.

Here is a college quiz. While many parts of the U.S. economy struggle to recover from the Great Recession of 2008-09, one domestic industry is experiencing a technology-driven expansion in which American innovations have led to countless new company startups, a surge in hiring and some of the highest-paying entry-level jobs for graduating college seniors. How are the nation´s universities responding so students might prepare for a promising career in this growing and intellectually challenging field? By largely ignoring it. Why? Because the industry is oil and gas. This fact may surprise the casual campus observer, since almost every U.S. college

CONCORD, N.H. — Republican Scott Brown said Monday he will kick off his next campaign for U.S. Senate in Portsmouth, the New Hampshire city he says played a special role in his childhood. The former Massachusetts senator will formally announce his bid for the seat held by Democrat Jeanne Shaheen at the Portsmouth Harborside Hotel on Thursday night. “I remember our house on Islington Street, strolling through Strawbery Banke with my grandfather, and catching a show at Prescott Park. Now, Portsmouth is going to be the start of the next chapter in my life,” he told supporters in an email.

Sen. Jeanne Shaheen sure talks a lot about “outside” money. She raises campaign funds by claiming to protect the state from outside “special interests” who might help Scott Brown. Those poor donors probably have no idea how much money Shaheen raises from out-of-state special interests. According to the Center for Responsive Politics, which tracks campaign donations, Shaheen has raised 75 percent of her 2014 campaign cash from out of state. For her career, Shaheen’s top 10 metropolitan areas for campaign donations are, in order: Boston; New York City; Washington, D.C.; Los Angeles; Lowell, Mass; San Francisco; Manchester; Chicago; Portsmouth; Philadelphia.

LONDON - Peaches Geldof, the wild-child second daughter of concert organizer Bob Geldof who worked as a model, a television presenter and a fashion writer and filled the pages of British tabloids with her late-night antics, has died at age 25. There was no immediate word on the cause of her death at her home in Wrotham, Kent, southeast England. Her father said in a statement Monday: "Peaches has died. We are beyond pain." "She was the wildest, funniest, cleverest, wittiest and the most bonkers of all of us," he said. "Writing 'was' destroys me afresh. What a beautiful child. How is this possible that we will not see her again? How is that bearable? We loved her and will cherish her forever."
