Not that we need any further proof of former U.S. Senator Zell Miller’s kookiness, but check out this Raw Story find:
Zell Miller, the former Democratic Senator from Georgia who backed President George W. Bush in 2004 and spoke at the Republican National Convention, recently told an anti-abortion gathering that the “killing” of unborn babies was the cause of many of America’s woes, including its military, social security, and immigration problems.
Miller claimed that 45 million babies have been “killed” since the Supreme Court decision on Roe v. Wade in 1973. “If those 45 million children had lived, today they would be defending our country, they would be filling our jobs, they would be paying into Social Security,” he asserted.
Let me make sure I get this: if abortion had never been legalized, we wouldn’t have any problems with all “them illegals”, there would be no Social Security crisis, and our military wouldn’t be bogged down in Iraq and having recruitment problems because all them babies would’ve signed up for a hitch or three.
According to Terrence Jeffrey Miller joined the ranks of the anti-abortion kooks when he heard Sean Hannity make the comparison between Roe v. Wade and the Dred Scott decision of 1857 which declared slaves to be non-people.
Isn’t that great? In addition to all the other “faults” of Roe (like the specious claim that it effected crime rates in the 1990’s), we can now also blame it for getting us stuck in Iraq.
