Don to tell us all how it's ok to murder people to stop abortion because it's murder in 3... 2...

MANCHESTER, NH (CBS) – A man running for sheriff in New Hampshire says if he is elected, he will arrest anyone involved in an abortion in his county.

Frank Szabo set off a firestorm with the comments. People on all sides of the political spectrum have condemned the statements, but Szabo stands by them. He says it’s the sheriff’s job to protect every citizen – even the unborn.

Szabo is running as a Republican for Hillsborough County Sheriff. But he injected a new issue in the debate when he sent out a press release saying he would arrest anyone performing an abortion.
He took it a step further when asked how far he’d go to stop one.
“Deadly force is the last thing law enforcement should be using, if a citizen’s life is in danger they should be protected,” says Szabo. “If there is no other choice, that’s what’s needed to protect the citizen.”
Republicans called Szabo’s statement, “Irresponsible, outrageous, and inappropriate.”

Democrats said, “Every Republican officeholder and candidate in New Hampshire must condemn and reject this man and his beliefs.”
His opponent, current Hillsborough County Sheriff James Hardy says Szbao’s statement could incite violence.
“My opponent wants to substitute his opinions for enforcing the law,” says Sheriff Hardy.
And voters in downtown Manchester seemed surprised abortion was even an issue the sheriff’s race.
“I’m not sure how he feels he can get away with that,” said one woman.
“I think people have strong opinions and it would influence how they vote,” said another woman.
Szabo isn’t backing down.
He says, “Why is there a difference between someone who is 20 years old and their life is in danger and someone who is nine months in utero.”
Szabo will face off against the current sheriff in the Republican primary next month.

And Begbie to argue that this guy's position is justified because "Lefties" love abortion and hate the death penalty or something.

Some how his logic seems a tad flawed.

Killing to stop abortions doesn't sound
very pro life to me but what do I know?

It's nice hanging out in a thread before the battle begins and blows it all to shit. It's kind of quiet, beautiful, serene. Anyway, let's just say this Sheriff is Super Awesome American Guy and go to greener, sillier pastures like the Empire State Building Shooting Thread.

What the fuck are you even talking about? I never defended Akin's position, nor did I suggest lefties love abortions. In fact, I said the opposite. Good try though.

Forget his over-the-top hyperbole about shooting abortionists. He said if he was Sheriff, he would arrest people for doing something that isn't illegal. That's enough to put him in the wacko column in my book.

If there are entire threads about comments made by Democrats, this guy at least deserves to be laughed at.

First Akin, and now this guy....Republicans are really obsessed with cunts this election season.

You'd think so, but some people are so desperate to associate pro lifers with violence that they'll overlook obvious stuff like that.
