Rep. Bobby Franklin (R-GA): America Is Like Qadaffi Because Abortion Is Legal
Today, allied militaries of several Western countries began a military campaign in Libya focused on enforcing a UN No Fly Zone. This military invention has spawned a lively debate, with eloquent arguments being made for and against this action.
Yet as Georgia Politico’s Dustin Baker notes, one state legislator raised a particularly odd objection to the No Fly Zone on his Facebook page. Reacting to a news article about Western strikes in Libya, Franklin asked, “How would we like it if other countries launched attacks upon these United States because of our regime’s war against the unborn?” — seemingly drawing a moral equivalency between Libya’s Qadaffi dictatorship and legal abortion in the United States:
Gotta love those false moral equivalencies. They’re totally reasonable, don’tcha know.
