Death to Abortionists... Except Me

Former Congressman Tom Colburn, a candidate for the Republican senatorial nomination in Oklahoma, via Josh Marshall:
Coburn is traditional conservative, opposing abortion except in rare cases to save the life of the mother and advocating tax cuts and limited government.

On the death penalty, he said: "I favor the death penalty for abortionists and other people who take life."

He said he performed two abortions to save the lives of mothers who had congenital heart disease, but opposes the procedure in cases of rape.
Candidates for the Democratic nomination include Brad Carson, Carroll Fisher Monte Johnson, Jim Rogers, and W. B. G. Woodson.
