Zell Miller

Ah, Zell, I'd almost forgotten about you. But here you are, reinforcing every negative view of you that I already have:
"How could this great land of plenty produce too few people in the last 30 years?" Miller asked. "Here is the brutal truth that no one dares to mention: We’re too few because too many of our babies have been killed."

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.

That's right. Apparently we can breed all of our problems away.

I can handle a difference of opinion on abortion. It's a personal and sometimes religious choice that I would not presume to force an opinion of on anybody. But to pine for the influx of poor that have resulted from those abortions coming to term is sick. You are trading one potential life for another that would be grist for the mill, a virtual abattoir, that we call Iraq. Zell Miller is one of those breed of individuals apparently not blessed with a sense of irony or the slightest bit of self-awareness.

By his logic, we don't need to implement the draft or raise the allowed age for soldiers. We just need to breed more.

If all that we are looking for is more soldiers and tax-payers, why don't we just legalize cloning. We need someone to clone who has a zombie-like allegiance to our President and a singular vision unsullied by practicality... maybe Zell himself.

"If the anti-abortion movement took a tenth of the energy they put into noisy theatrics and devoted it to improving the lives of children who have been born into lives of poverty, violence, and neglect, they could make a world shine." -- Michael J. Tucker

James at Genius of Insanity had some good observations on Zell also:

"Aborted Babies"
