Tear gas is an abortifacient. Why won’t the anti-abortion movement oppose it?
Why, indeed? Why are many people who call themselves staunch pro-lifers, and who are willing to go to any length to oppose health insurance coverage for women that includes the morning-after pill — a contraceptive — completely silent about the use of tear gas to quell crowds?
Why, in fact, are many pro-lifers for whom everything turns on abortion and abortifacients actively cheering on the police who are using tear gas in Ferguson? These are questions that deserve to be asked, surely.
