Zell’s little soldiers

Finally, an anti-abortion message the religious right can really run with:

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.
“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.

Makes sense. In a parallel-universe, biblical sort of way.

Hat tip to The Hollywood Liberal.
