I Twittered about this provocative abortion cartoon and got such a discussion on my Facebook page that I decided to post it here for comment.  Frankly, it seems to me that if pro-lifers really believed their own hot-headed rhetoric, that “abortion is murder,” we’d see many more desperate, violent responses, like the killing of this doctor.

Gary McCoy is our resident, knuckle-dragging conservative pro-lifer.  I’ll be interested to see the comments on this cartoon.  We got a crazy number of responses some years ago to a Michael Ramirez cartoon depicting a fetus in an electric chair.  I can always count on abortion, the Confederate Battle Flag, gun control and cartoons about Jews and Islam to bring on the most emotional, angry response.
