The Darkness Has Gone Absurd
June 9, 2009 Carhart compares Tiller to MLK, pro-lifers to KKK
From the Washington Times today, some remarkable statements by sloven late-term abortionist LeRoy Carhart:

Dr. LeRoy Carhart, one of the nation's few providers of late-term abortions, called on the federal government to treat as hate crimes all activities by "anti-choice domestic terrorists," compared the slain Dr. George Tiller to Martin Luther King and said planting crosses was equivalent to actions by the Ku Klux Klan.
"This is the equivalent of Martin Luther King being assassinated," Dr. Carhart said of the May 31 slaying of one of America's best-known late-term abortion providers. "This is the equivalent of Pearl Harbor, the sinking of the Lusitania and any other major historic event where we've tolerated the intolerable for too long."...
"I think there is absolutely no difference in putting a cross in front of a person's home because of what race they belong to than there is putting a cross in front of our homes because we do abortions," said Dr. Carhart, who assisted Dr. Tiller in providing late-term abortions at his Wichita, KS, practice every 3 weeks.
Dr. Carhart's abortion clinic, based near Omaha, NE, performs almost 2k abortions a year, though he cannot perform them after 24 weeks' gestation because NE law forbids post-viability abortions. Dr. Carhart, who was the plaintiff in both the Supreme Court decisions on partial-birth abortion, could not say what will be the Wichita clinic's fate.
"I just got off the phone with Mrs. Tiller," he said, "and I know no decisions have been made about anything. What I want to assure the press and reassure the women of America is that we will somehow, somewhere continue to provide abortions later in gestation."
("Assure the press"?)
Dr. Carhart, 67, was in Washington for a memorial service Monday evening at National City Christian Church in honor of Dr. Tiller.
About 300 people attended the service and heard Dr. Carhart talk about his late friend.
In a quivering voice and apologizing for losing his composure, Dr. Carhart spoke of Dr. Tiller's early life as a pots-and-pans salesman. He said Dr. Tiller's motto was that "when the going gets tough, the tough get Dairy Queen."
The mood quickly turned serious, though, as Dr. Carhart's voice broke, and he pleaded with the crowd to treat "anti-choice domestic crimes as crimes of hate."
Observing the crowd were US marshals and also a private security detail that was hired for the occasion, said Marjorie Signer, communications director for the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice. These observers were stationed at the entrances and also seated in the pews.
Speaking earlier at an afternoon news conference organized by the coalition, which encompasses 40 denominations and religious groups, he said the matter of whether to have a child is "a religious freedom issue" that revolves around a woman's right to decide according to her beliefs whether to bear a child, he said.
"God gave that fetus a 'guardian ad litem' when he chose the mother that fetus is born with," he said. "That mother, I feel, has been charged by God to make the right choices for that child during its unborn and early born years."
(Is Carhart here advocating the freedom to commit infanticide? Yes. And has a "guardian ad litem" ever opted to kill his or her charge? This man is crazy. Where is MSM?)
Dr. Carhart said he considered becoming a Methodist minister at one point, and at the press conference blamed the pro-life movement and its churches for a decline in religion.
"Not that we've lost religion," he clarified, "because a lot of these religions are fostering these horrific ideas," referring to killing abortion providers....

How does Dr. Carhart with good conscious, truly relate Dr. Tiller's murder with that of Martin Luther King? Abortion has been very seriously related to slavery, because we treated slaves as non people. We did not think slaves had any value as human beings. That is exactly what we are doing to the unborn. We give them no value or right to life. Martin Luther King fought for the RIGHTS of the African American people. Just as Pro Lifers, we are fighting for the RIGHTS of the unborn babies. Has our country grown so cold and so dark, that Dr. Carhart can jump to this conclusion and escape from any criticism? Also, if you notice how he stated, "that mother, I feel, has been charged by God to make the right choices for that child during its unborn and early born years." Notice EARLY BORN YEARS. Remember the Infanticide Bill that was introduced in Texas, where a mother can kill her baby one year old and younger, without harsh sentencing, if she suffers from Post Partum Depression? That was the planting of another seed to make that acceptable. Also, think about this. Which mothers are going to kill their babies? Just like which mothers usually abort? It is usually the lower classes. The top administration is not stupid. It is eugenics, and it is getting rid of the people they feel are a burden on society. Jesus went to those people and loved them, and offered healing and hope in Himself. An abundant life through Him, and a relationship with God. We have got to reach out my friends. We have got to embrace and love people, telling them about Jesus. Because our government and society only wants them dead and destroyed. Pam
