National Review’s Kevin D. Williamson: Women Who Have Abortions Should Be Hanged, and So Should Doctors

This is “pro-life?”
Wingnuts • Views: 79,569
National Review columnist Kevin D. Williamson

So this morning on Twitter, this happened; National Review writer Kevin D. Williamson made the real “pro-life” agenda very, very clear, expressing his opinion that women who have abortions should be put to death — by hanging. And not just the women; he says the doctor who performs the abortion, the nurses who assist, and the hospital staff who enable it should also be executed.

This was not satire, or a “joke.” He really believes this, as you’ll see if you read the following Twitter collection from the bottom up.

DO NOT take any of the gains made in the past fifty years in women’s, gay and minority rights for granted: there are people out there working to actively roll them back

That they say this. In public. “Out loud” - should terrify all women and any men who love them.

Kevin Williamson’s Heart Of Darkness

We usually avoid the work of Kevin D. Williamson at National Review, partly because every piece is overwritten tripe with a point so far outside of reality we need a wormhole to reach it, and partly because we are creeped out by Williamson, who looks like the dandified love child of Ted Bundy and a deformed penis. He is also probably the most consistent race-baiter at NR since old John Derbyshire took his white sheets to VDARE, and our blood pressure does not need more nudging towards the red line.

Sadly, we could not avoid Williamson’s latest attempt to prop up the vaunted, race-baiting legacy of NR founder William F. Buckley (currently spending eternity stuck in an African-American Studies class at Berkeley taught by Amiri Baraka). Mostly because Williamson isn’t sending out dog whistles here. He’s blasting the emergency klaxon on the firehouse across the town square.

As a woman, there are times I feel my rights have been given to me on suffrance and they can be ripped away. This is one of those times.

How far does it go—I refer women having ectopic pregnancies that will kill them if they are allowed to grow to the gynecologists who perform the abortions will full knowledge of what they intend to do. Does that make me an accessory to first degree murder?

10 klys  Sep 28, 2014 12:15:20pm

He doesn’t represent all Republicans!!!

Except for the part where the Republican party has opposition to abortion for any reason as one of their primary platform planks. Although abhorrent to rational people, his stance is a somewhat logical outgrowth of that position.

I deserve the right to make decisions about my own body, just like every forced-pregnancy male takes for granted. Voting Republican is saying that I don’t deserve that - or equal pay, or that our gay and lesbian friends don’t deserve the right to get married, or that minorities don’t deserve equal treatment before the law and in our society.

But if you try to point this out to people, they get uncomfortable, because that’s not what it really means.

Bullshit. I’m not blind. I can watch the actions of Republican lawmakers. But apparently they are, but it’s not all Republicans! I don’t feel that way!

No, but you don’t care enough to vote any differently. Actions speak a lot fucking louder than words.

Make no mistake - @KevinNR is not the only conservative who’s this twisted. Their agenda is to roll back all progress on women’s rights.

and gay and LGBT rights, minority rights (including religious minorities and atheists) and voting rights, etc.

Labor and consumer rights have already been rolled back since the 1960’s but there is still room to diminish them even more…

I guess women can’t commit suicide while pregnant, then, according to him.

Where do we draw the line? Can a woman risk her own life while pregnant but do we need to step in and protect the fetus? What about drinking while pregnant? Harms the fetus, maybe we should throw the woman in prison.

You know, we should just be pre-emptive and imprison all women during their pregnancy, because they might do something to harm the fetus. How better to protect them?

Actually, that is a real thing.
There is a belief in life before conception (“pre-existence” or “pre-life”), specifically with Mormons.
It was recently very much defined in law when Arizona legislators passed and Jan Brewer signed an abortion law in 2012 saying life begins two weeks before conception.

49 klys  Sep 28, 2014 12:54:52pm

Taking a small side step, there was a press conference today by the Japanese Meteorological Agency (responsible for their volcano monitoring) where they said they believe this was a phreatic eruption and more are possible.

Mt. Ontake’s last phreatic eruption was in 2007.

Mt. Ontake’s last phreatic eruption was in 2007.

Phreatic explosions can be accompanied by carbon dioxide or hydrogen sulfide gas emissions. The former can asphyxiate at sufficient concentration; the latter is a broad spectrum poison. A 1979 phreatic eruption on the island of Java killed 140 people, most of whom were overcome by poisonous gases.[2]

They count pregnancy as beginning with the time of the last menstrual period, in other words WHEN A WOMAN CAN NOT POSSIBLE BE PREGNANT just in order to attach another 2 weeks on to the advancement of a pregnancy so they can deny an abortion to someone who is 18 weeks along.

After all, if my cousin needs a bone marrow transplant, or my offspring needs a kidney, or even just a couple pints of blood… I don’t have to give it to them. People might call me names if they knew I made that choice, they might disapprove of my decision, but nobody’s suggesting the law should require I give of those parts just because somebody’s life depends on it.

I’m sure it’s just a coincidence, not causative at all, that men have bone marrow and kidneys and blood.

That’s a sad tragedy.

However…Dark’s pimped National Review countless times and, if I’m not mistaken, he’s pimped Williamson as well.

So, Dark, while I like you as a person — as much as you can like someone you’ve never met — this is the kind of venom I really despise.

Consider this fair warning: You ever pimp National Review again, for any reason, you get a downding. Doesn’t matter if the article or writer in question might make perfect sense. I’ve just seen too much bullshit come from those guys over the past few years to give them the benefit of the doubt for anything.

I’m not seeing a whole lot of difference between ISIS and guys like Williamson. He’s a complete and total fuckwad, and if guys like him had their way, I’d be visiting my sister’s grave site.

For the past 3 days, I’ve been seeing unusual scat or animal droppings in my yard, and driveway.

The largest herbivores resident in our Nashville neighborhood are rabbits & ground hogs, and these leavings didn’t fit the profile.

Walked outside this afternoon, and the mystery was solved.

A sheep was grazing in our neighbor’s yard with a chewed thru tether around its neck.

The neighbor wasn’t at home so I called animal control.

The sheep wandered off, but with the some of the nutso “my lawn is greener than your” lawns in our neighborhood, it will have plenty of food supply.

Have to wonder where it came from, as the nearest homes with pasture land are at lest 5 miles from here.

Let’s see, according to this hole, “the entire criminal architecture” should be strung up, including doctors, nurses, etc. Presumably that would include Supreme Court justices who decided pro on Roe v. Wade. And of course the presidents who appointed those justices, and the senators who approved those appointments. And then you have all the voters who elected those presidents and senators, going back to Ike and maybe beyond.

Which is why the decision should always be the woman’s.

If the intellectually consistent position equates a zygote with a woman values a zygote over a woman, it’s obviously not a situation for intellect. It is a situation for the autonomy of the person most involved—the pregnant woman.

She should get a cat litter box, and some cat tranquilizers.

Keep the cat tranquil for a couple of days while it gets use (new smells & new places inside to explore) to the new surroundings.

Hopefully there’s someplace in the new house where the cat can get up off the floor and ” be above it all.”

Moved pet dogs and cats from state to state several times.

The dogs don’t care about moving, they just want to hang out with us and the cat(s ).

The cats seem to adjust easier by being tranquil for a couple of days in the new home.

A fire fighter runs into a burning building. He can either rescue test tubes containing two zygotes, or he can rescue a little four-year-old girl. By the logic of radical anti-choicers, the fire fighter should rescue the test tubes and leave the innocent little four year old to burn to death.

For a father with a young child and a dying wife who can only be saved by an abortion, this is the choice.

If these are his feelings on abortion, then I’d wager that for every homicide there is, he would send the store employees and the respective store owners that sold the guns and the bullets to the killers, and those who trained them to the death sentence.

re: #60 Archangelus

Unbelievable that a man who openly advocates for killing women can consider himself as “pro-life” in any capacity…

I’ve heard very similar words in the past from the demented folks in the darker corner of this region - make no mistake, translate his words as is and put a mask on his face and you’ll find ZERO distinction between what he’s uttered and the rantings of those belonging to Al Qaeda, Al Jema’ah Al Islamiyah and others fanatics…

I’m not sure why, but the way your comment I am quoting is worded made me think of another twist to this Kevin D. Willamson idiot’s stance on women and abortion.

It has been said by some that ISIS is driven by desire of wicked people more into the blood of their extremism and just want a reason to kill. So they use a radical religion ideology as their excuse to do what they want to do. Sick folks bent on getting to fulfill their darkest desires to want to do something like murder adults and children due to their not converting, or gruesome beheading for recruitment of other murderers, etc.

Makes me wonder if some of the zealots like Kevin D. Williamson might be into the harsh treatment of women’s reproductive rights because they use extremist religious thinking to want to act out on women. Do they hate women? Are they products of mistreatment by a woman and they want them all to suffer? Did girlfriends, mothers, sisters, etc., have an abortion? Something tells me there is more to this thinking than religion.

Sometimes is just seems folks just love the idea of some heavy punitive punishment for others. And some of them want to take it as far as they can. Maybe they need that to really make them feel good about saving a life.

That’s a trick question. A proper constitutional firefighter has no business in a burning building unless the market-aware owner has contracted with his private corporation to provide specified services.

Seems to me that’s why there’s a push on to make jail more retributive and less reformative. Scaring people away from breaking the law is looked on in some circles as more effective than dealing with the causes and reducing recidivism.

Of course deterrents do work with a portion of citizens, namely those who demand jails be hell holes, but it doesn’t work on the majority of people, those who value society and don’t need threats to act morally.

For those who break the law, their belief in their ability to not be caught, or emotional states where they simply don’t care or the reward far surpasses fear of even a hell hole jail can be affected by methods other than abusive treatment.

One of the causes of crime is that in some places, the criminal has a well founded expectation that he won’t be caught and punished. Savage retribution is neither needed nor effective, but sure and swift punishment, modest but enough to make the racket unattractive, is another story.

If you want fewer speedsters on the road, you don’t need multi-thousand dollar fines. You just need speed cameras, radar traps etc. and a mechanism to enforce a fine that gets the driver’s attention.

As to jail, it needs to be humane and respectful. You’re trying to impress upon the prisoner a new way of thinking about other people and their rights. This has to begin with the system itself setting a good example.

My fury with Chuck Colson for his part in Watergate faded over the years as he absorbed this lesson and went forth from prison to teach it more widely. Taking his life as a whole, I now find myself, to my surprise, an admirer.

Back in the late 80s-early 90s I started to become alarmed at the rise of the religious right and talked about it to friends and family.

Roe v Wade will never be overturned, they said; contraception will never be questioned, they argued. It was just unthinkable, they laughed, telling me I was nuts for believing my lying eyes.

So here we are. Roe v Wade is still in place technically, but women are denied legal access by cost prohibitive waiting times, distances needed to be traveled because most clinics have been closed due to onerous and ridiculous laws, doctors/nurses being threatened and fucking murdered and more. Now, women who use birth control are sluts and rapists have parental rights.

Reproductive Rights are Civil Rights.

re: #115 lostlakehiker

I have to write very carefully here, and it would be nice if people would return the favor and read carefully. I carefully refrained from claiming that there was no country and no part of the US where abortion was illegal and the woman who got the abortion faced punishment. I wrote only that so far as I knew, they didn’t face execution.

Our NR author Kevin has crossed every last bridge with his opinion that they should be executed, and in so doing, he’s lost the company of even El Salvador and Mississippi. And that is kind of my point. His proposal has no meaningful backing anywhere and won’t gather any support from any quarter. And I reiterate my prediction that he’ll be sent packing from NR.

You wanna bet? Maybe so, I guess, this could have been suicide by twitter.

Not in the 21st century, but there has, indeed, been a “first-world” nation in which abortion was , as Williamson would like, a crime punishable by death. NAZI FUCKING GERMANY!

Their BFF, Vichy France, had their last execution in 1942.

On second thought, I doubt he’ll get fired. Derbyshire was fired after admitting openly that he is a racist. Quite a few pundits, like Williamson, have flirted with the idea of charging women and their docs with murder for their “participation” in an abortion. And I don’t think that’s usually a fireable offense.

I think it’s more the execution, and particularly “hanging”, part of it that may not bode well for KDW.

Maybe National Review will shitcan Williamson — but it seems like a stretch to me to believe that the magazine that hired a plagiarist who stole stuff from them would find what Williamson said to be beyond the pale.

If National Review ever had a pale, it was burned for firewood in a cold winter in the 50s.

re: #133 goddamnedfrank

Listen to LLH. This is a total non-issue you pathetic, sensitive, libtard cock-fags. Senators like Rand Paul would never introduce something as insane as a fetal personhood bill. There’s no way a country like Kenya would sentence a nurse to death for taking part in an abortion. A US state like Georgia would never actually consider legislation that applied the death penalty to abortion. Actual Reverends like Michael Bray would never, ever write books like “A Time to Kill” entirely dedicated to the idea of legitimizing the killing of people involved in abortions.

All your concerns are silly and stupid and retarded and totally based on an imbalance of your hysterical humors. Lostlakehiker is a very serious commenter and not at all selling you a pile of conservative apologist horse shit and denial.

QFT, plus pure enjoyment.
