I have long argued that the very same arguments pro-abortion advocates use to support abortion can be used to support capital punishment.
So why doesn't President Obama, trying to solve the dilemma of what to do with the Gitmo detainees, simply declare them fetuses and retroactively abort them?
In an executive order, the president said, “Since I ordered Gitmo shut down, and people don’t want us to bring the inmates here, the only way to extract them from the facility is to change their legal status to one that offers us more choices.”Fitting, since no one in Washington is more in favor of unrestricted abortion on demand than Barack Obama.
While accused terrorists have access to attorneys, and nearly-limitless legal appeals, a fetus has no legal standing, cannot speak for itself, and is subject to the death penalty without regard to guilt or innocence. ...
“We can debate whether enemy combatants have access to protections under the U.S. Constitution,” said Obama. “However, no serious person would grant such protection to an embryo or fetus. The loss of 240 fetuses wouldn’t raise an eyebrow in a nation where more than 3,000 of them hit the Dumpster daily.”
