DEATH AND FAXES 

DEATH AND FAXES

A press release from the Kansas Coalition for Life came rolling off the Pesky Fly s fax machine last week. According to KCFL, Mel Gibson s The Passion of the Christ parallels late-term abortion. Here s what the pro-lifers have to say about big Mel s sacred snuff-flick: First. the inhumane brutality depicted on screen ... is remark ably similar to the inhumane brutality depicted in the photos of the mutilated bodies of late-term aborted babies who died a painful death, either before they were born, or while they were being born. ... Second, the parallel of innocence is hard to miss ... every abortion death is, in a literal sense, a crucifixion of an innocent person. The third obvious parallel [is] the complete failure of the judicial system. The last time we checked, abortion clinics had abandoned the practice of nailing aborted fetuses to tiny little crosses, so we re not exactly sure how every abortion death is a literal crucifix ion, but we are in total agreement with the KCFL. Life may not begin until 40, but by the time a fetus is 33 years old, it s too old to be aborted.
