Gloria Feldt, then Pres. of Planned Parenthood, described how she was asked to go on television after the murder of Dr. Barnett Slepian by an antiabortionist assassin.
“After Slepian’s murder, I was asked to appear on a network TV show to discuss the killing and its implications. I was told it would not be a debate. And how could it possibly be a debate? Is there “other side” to the issue of cold-blooded murder?
But by air time, the host had found a representative from the National Right to Life committee to oppose me. “To be fair,” she explained… Fairness, my eye. Would you have gay bashers on to “debate” the murder of Matthew Shepard? Give Al Qaeda operatives airtime to present their views in defense of the bombing of the World Trade Center? Sociopaths don’t deserve this kind of attention.”

Every single known pro-life group condemned the murder of Doctor Slepian by a lone abortion fanatic. National Right to Life is completely unaffiliated with any type of violence and had nothing to do with the murder. Feldt’s comparison of a National Right to Life representative to “gay bashers” and “sociopaths” is the worst kind of rhetoric demonizing pro-lifers.
Especially considering that babies like the one below represent the cause of the pro-choice movement. Planned Parenthood performed hundreds such abortions on the day of the debate.Share on Facebook
