Sen. Linda Gray blames Roe v Wade for Tucson shooting. Seriously.

Politico’s Ben Smith reports that Gray did an interview Sunday on George Washington University Radio’s “Political Pulse,” and said:

“So now we have this generation of people who have that idea and it continues on, that why respect life if we can kill an infant who can’t defend themselves. It goes back to the value in the creation of life and the respect for that life and if your (sic) not trained and have that type of character in realizing that all human life deserves respect this is what our country has come to.”

When asked whether she thinks “that it is a cultural issue that is leading our youth into delinquency and into committing acts like this,” Gray replied: “Yes, I believe part of it is a cultural issue in the disrespect for human life.”

Linda Gray is every bit as obsessed with abortion as Trent Franks so it’s not surprising that she’d use the tragedy in Tucson to push her pet cause. Too bad the reporter didn’t ask Sen. Gray probing questions about her own respect for human life, given the callousness with which she and her GOP cohort in the State Lege regard the lives of poor transplant patients and poor people in general.

    She has the same mindset as most of her fellow travelers. They seem to have a remarkable respect for life from conception until birth. After that, you’re on your own. Personal responsibility, pull yourself up by your boot straps, stop whining, all that. If you are disabled, mentally or physically, tough.Go to church, pray, whatever, but don’t expect help from anybody else, no way.

    So what caused all the assignations back in the 60’s when abortion was illegal, and we all were raised on Opie and “My Three Sons”? Mom stayed home while dad worked, you had the nice little cottage in Levittown, and saluted the flag and ate family dinners without cell-phones and I-pods at the table? The PILL wasn’t even around, let alone legal abortions.
