Comment of the Day

Reader: How many abortion-rights proponents are anti-death penalty and pro-gun control?

Our Melanie Asmar reported about a Supreme Court challenge to the Colorado law that forbids displaying aborted fetus photos near churches where children might see them. As you might expect from this topic, debate is divided. Here's a reader who sees contradictions in the views of many pro-choice types.

JimTom writes:

I'm sure a large percent of these abortion proponents are against the death penalty and for gun control. Typical liberal confusion. Don't get me wrong I don't care what a women does with here body unless it is my child she is carrying. But it would be nice someday to see some consistency from the left.
