He's a hired killer. It's illegal both to kill and to take money for it. I know your point is different, but I wanted to present the legal options.If the woman has a multitude of problems, she can be made a "No Code" if she is cognizant. Or if not cognizant but terminal & suffering, you can get Power of Attorney for Health Care and make her a No Code.Then care for comfort is given and many invasive procedures are avoided and many meds not given. This is legal. It's considered a natural death. Not hastened.

Regarding your comment about never meeting a person who is pro-abortion - there are many. I applied for a job in a college as a health center nurse. ( For me, it was very easy, usually, to be hired on) I had two great interviews. On the third, I met with the head of the center. I said that while I was pro-life, I felt that because of the law I could be neutral with pregnant students. I was told that the focus of the health center was to keep students in school, which a pregnancy interfered with. I wasn't hired.

I've enjoyed your columns very much, but am frankly disgusted by your purposeful killing of an obvious mother deer. Deers don't just nurse their fawns, they teach them to survive. Where to hide, when to run, what is dangerous, what to eat, etc. As most mammals grow, they naturally leave their mothers or the mother no longer is as affectionate, readied by nature for the next conception.This was cruel. Were you starving and needed the meat? I suppose it proved your manhood to yourself. You probably sentenced the fawn to death, also, by your actions.
