Although I don’t consider a shooting in a Planned Parenthood facility the same as an attack by radical Islamic terrorists, I nevertheless feel that as a society we must realize how serious incidents like these are, we must address them, and we must address them now.
Don’t mistake my distinction of the issues as making the deaths of the people in Colorado any less tragic and horrific. On the contrary, it is incumbent on us as a society to tackle this head on and deal with it in a way that minimizes the chances of this happening again.
Although I am pro-Choice, I presently find myself leaning towards presidential candidates who are more conservative in their viewpoints. That being said, I pay close attention to what they say about all issues, not necessarily because it will be the determining factor on how I vote, but because I want to make sure whomever I choose to support is not encouraging this type of behavior. I am willing to vote for someone with viewpoints on domestic issues more conservative than mine, but I will not vote for a crazy lunatic whose rhetoric incites violence. And make no mistake, there is a difference between someone extremely conservative on an issue like abortion and someone whose words rally someone to murder people at an abortion clinic. What causes someone to murder someone at an abortion clinic is either a tendency towards evil, mental illness at its worst, or a combination of both.
It is without question a very serious matter. One of the biggest threats Americans face as a society is allowing the global dangers we face to distract us from the dangers causing the deaths of innocent people. Even more importantly,
In a time when the war against terror is correctly the most important issue facing the American populous, to forget the importance of protecting citizens from acts of violence on all fronts, be it in an abortion clinic or a 9 year old boy in Chicago would be a neglect we will pay for dearly, sooner or later.
