“Immediatist vs Incrementalist” debate analysis, Part III: Social justice history vs TR Hunter

7067987283_3bb744093cAs I start, I’d like to reiterate why I’m pursuing this multi-part analysis of the “Immediatist vs Incrementalist” debate between Abolish Human Abortion’s T. Russell Hunter and Center for Bio-Ethical Reform’s Gregg Cunningham.

In a comment to my Part II post, an antagonized Hunter called my efforts a “freaked out obsession,” to which I responded:

  • Some thoughts on Gosnell from Ramesh Ponnuru:

    The question that should haunt us now is not how many victims Gosnell killed, which we will never know, but how many more Gosnells there are in our country.

  • And from Robert George, who I hope is correct:

    Late-term abortionist Kermit Gosnell has been convicted of first degree murder for killing babies after delivering them alive….But Dr. Gosnell is only the front man; and the real trial has only just begun. The defendant is the abortion license in America.

  • The Gosnell jury continues to hear the re-reading of testimony. Based on JD Mullane’s picture of the charges, the jury deliberations could take some time:

    The jurors are also apparently still wrestling with minor charges as well, asking to see files related to two babies that were allegedly aborted past Pennsylvania’s legal limit for abortions of 24 weeks. The panel of 12 also sent out a question asking if the medical files were the sole basis for the 227 misdemeanor charges against Gosnell for allegedly violating Pennsylvania’s 24-hour waiting period on abortions.

Pro-abortion terrorist sentenced to 41 months in prison

Read backstory here.

Theodore Shulman not only threatened to kill several pro-life leaders, he was found in possession of “cyanide and two other deadly substances” when apprehended by the FBI in May 2010. Shulman liked to refer to himself as the “first pro-choice terrorist.”

Shulman faced up to 51 months in prison and a fine of $250,000. An October 3 press release from the U.S. Attorney’s Office, District of New York, indicates Shulman ended up getting sentenced to 41 months in prison, three years supervised release, and a $100 fine.

Pro-abortion extremist faces 4 years in prison for threats; found with cyanide

UPDATE 9:50a: Douglas Johnson, Legislative Director of National Right to Life, adds this thought:

Theodore Shulman entered a guilty plea in a federal court in Manhattan yesterday. But the only press coverage seen, so far, is a short story in the New York Daily News, and an even shorter Associated Press piece.

Neither the Daily News nor the AP mentioned that Shulman is the son of famed feminist author and activist Alix Kates Shulman, whose works include Memoirs of an Ex-Prom Queen. I think that if a pro-life activist had entered a guilty plea to making death threats against prominent pro-abortion leaders, that story would be covered much more widely – and if the offender also were the son of a famous pro-life author and activist, that association would be highlighted. Maybe the “mainstream media” should also enter a guilty plea – guilty to bias by grossly selective perception regarding what constitutes “news.”

I should also highlight the fact that Alix has spoken of aborting four of Shulman’s siblings, “and not one was the result of carelessness.” Theodore has commented on those abortions, saying two came before him and two after. Shulman has one living sister, Polly. One doesn’t have to be a psychiatrist to figure out why Shulman is messed up. He needs our prayers.

6a: From the New York Daily News, last night:

Dolan: Obama compromise on contraception mandate “a hill of beans”; opposition intensifies

Just as the mainstream media initially failed to report the erupting controversy over President Obama’s contraceptive mandate, they are again ignoring the sustained uproar against it. MSM thinks Obama’s faux concession on February 10 settled the matter. According to The Hill on February 13:

Gingrich backpedals: Life begins at fertilization

Yesterday the Gingrich campaign sent further clarification to pro-life bloggers and reporters (not me, I’m now off their dance card; such is the heartbreak of being bad cop) that when he clarified over the weekend he believes “human life begins at conception,” he meant “at the moment of fertilization.”
