Why Anne Coulter isn't qualified to speak on abortion
Anne Coulter says a lot of testy things meant to unsettle "liberals". What bugs me about some conservatives is that they consistently liquidate moral stances on little 15 minute media projects they presume everyone forgets like seasonal clothing. Most "die hard conservatives" believe everyone's special interest has the same life span as theirs. Most short-term lunatics conveniently forget that terrorism is already an international crime, that the constitution protects everyone's religious freedoms (including their own), and that for right now we do not need to trade privacy for security.
What's so puzzling is how neo-con folks get away with calling themselves "conservatives". They spend most of their lifetime trying to make the United States a place of Us (American special interests) vs. Them (the other Americans who have other interests). This magical place is one where they are in power and one visceral rhetoric dominates. Then they make radical changes, toss the rule book and any annoying fettering documents, like laws and the U.S. Constitution.
During the Bush Administration this was done to the pure dismay of American conservatives, like Rep. Ron Paul. The real American conservative wants less change, less government and less spending. Neo-conservatives crank out totalitarian or absolutist rule on a quite indulgent federal tax tab. They are the same as a European fascist or Stalinist era despot.

There is a double standard issued routinely by neo-conservatives; which is a rule of power for them and whatever you get for you.

This is why Anne Coulter can one day rain verbal hellfire and pithy acid onto entire communities of innocent American muslims for being peaceful Islamic practitioners and then encourage violent anti-abortion extremists to go ahead and murder a few abortion doctors in Jesus name. It's beyond hypocrisy. It's American exceptionalism.
This leads me to question why all of a sudden, this 15 minutes in American history, she has decided it's okay to urge an Americans to commit what is essentially an act of domestic terrorism by murdering abortion doctors.
Whatever it is, it's not peaceful political activism.
Anne Coulter does not have the universal leverage to make the life and death choices for others because she wrote a book and she hates liberals for a living. Coulter invites violence on abortion clinics, doctors or anyone else who isn't her, really. She is conveniently pro-war in a position where she will never be in any danger to lose her limbs or her life. Someone else is paid by taxpayers to do that.
Let's not forget who Anne Coulter is. Coulter is a woman, childless and unmarried. She is a Republican with an outwardly arid exhibit of bones-and-elbows sexuality. Anne Coulter, the neo-conservative exceptionalist, may be busy not having a crisis or unwanted pregnancy at this very moment.
Should Ms. Coulter ever have an unwanted pregnancy, a frequent problem represented in American conservative Christian homes, her constituencies would obviously urge her to make delivery on that infant.
However, let's say you are not Ms. Coulter and you happen to have a medical appointment to survey the option of terminating your pregnancy. What if one of her inspired adherents shows up to murder your doctor, the staff and possibly some pregnant women in the valley of decision on the birth of a child?
I would say it's a dangerously irresponsible utterance of a woman who isn't personally in any proximity range of making a baby. For this reason, she simply lacks the necessary qualifications to make a decision in this area.
A pregnant woman is most qualified to make the decision whether or not to have a child. Anyone else cannot decide. Pregnancy sorts the pragmatic in an automatic pecking order for a woman.
