I normally don’t want to touch the abortion issue, but just a stupid question.
Scott Roeder, the suspect in the killing of Dr. George Tiller, has told the AP:
I know there are many other similar events planned around the country as long as abortion remains legal.
What’s the difference between this statement and the ridiculous “ticking bomb” scenario that right-wing zealots claim as the rationale for torture? Should we not be water-boarding Mr. Roeder right now in order to get valuable information from him that would prevent imminent terrorist attacks and murder?
