Why Can’t We Publish List Of Women Who Get Abortions?

Coulter argued that public records of citizens holding gun permits shouldn’t be published because “people with gun permits by definition do not have criminal records.” She argued that public lists ought to include “recently-paroled criminals,” people living in rent-controlled housing, and women who have had abortions.

“Why can’t we get a record of women who have had abortions?” Coulter asked. “They get money from Planned Parenthood; they get money from Medicare and Medicaid, much of these are tax subsidies. I think mothers might want to know what other women on their street might be willing to murder a child.”

She also attacked Manhattan real estate: “How about a list of the rent-controlled apartments in New York?” she asked. “And by the way, if we’re producing lists of gun permit owners, I want ‘em for Manhattan! I want to know how many rich liberals with their bodyguards have gun permits,” arguing that if someone makes over $200,000 a year, they shouldn’t be able to hire armed bodyguards, and should be as “defenseless as the rest of us.”

Coulter summed up her argument, saying that gun control advocates are like “hysterical women” who “refuse to go after criminals.”

Woot, woot, woot!
