Federalism? Naw!

The Feds are now investigating the killing of an abortionist in Kansas. According to the New York Times, they are interested in finding out if the assassin worked alone and whether or not the assassin violated the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances Act.

Funny. I thought that murder was in the states' jurisdiction, and I'm pretty sure that shooting the doctor down in a church did not violate the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances Act.

Federal marshals have been dispatched to make sure that no one disrupts the doctor's funeral.

Again, I don't quite see how that's in federal jurisdiction.

  1. Good point. I really doubt there's anything specific about killing a doctor far from his clinic in the FACE Act. But it doesn't matter, because there are enough pro-Choice people outraged at this killing, who simply want justice according to their standards. They're not interested in the moral argument of late-term abortions. They stopped thinking about it long ago, accepting instead the reasoning that helps them sleep at night. If I was the governor of Kansas, I'd be pissed. Hey, wait, Kansas! Yet another similarity with John Brown!
