Hollywood Actress: Shut-Up About Protecting Unborn Babies If You Want To Execute Vicious Child Killers

I don’t usually care what Hollywood folk think about issues because, why?? However, in light of the federal government’s decision to resume capital punishment after nearly two decades, it’s interesting to see the huge disconnect when it comes to abortion, particularly third-trimester abortion and capital punishment. The fight against putting to death those found guilty while vigorously fighting for the right to kill those who are innocent is a popular position. Just look at what some of the Democratic presidential candidates said when the decision to resume capital punishment was made public.

Anyway, here’s the lead-in to actress/activist Alyssa Milano’s damning tweet: Milano was called out for supporting Planned Parenthood: “Murdered like ya PLANNED PARENTHOOD? Murdered like THAT? Is that what you mean?”

Milano responded:

Your administration just reinstated the death penalty and scheduled 5 executions of *actual* people. You’ve lost the right to pull your, “pro-life” narrative-talking-point- bullshit with me.

In Milano’s twisted view, it’s perfectly reasonable to draw an equivalence between viciously depraved criminals and innocent, unborn babies.

Let’s take a look at what those “five *actual* people” did to end up on the short-list for execution. [Ed. Because of how gruesome and disturbing the details of their crimes are, I am not publishing them in full. However, you can go to the links provided at the end of each snapshot and read for yourself. But be forewarned: some details are simply unspeakable.]

Daniel Lewis Lee, a member of a white supremacist group, murdered a family of three, including an eight-year-old girl. After robbing and shooting the victims with a stun gun, Lee covered their heads with plastic bags, sealed the bags with duct tape, weighed down each victim with rocks, and threw the family of three into the Illinois bayou. On May 4, 1999, a jury in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Arkansas found Lee guilty of numerous offenses, including three counts of murder in aid of racketeering, and he was sentenced to death. Lee’s execution is scheduled to occur on Dec. 9, 2019. Court of Appeals, Eighth Circuit.

Lezmond Mitchell stabbed to death a 63-year-old grandmother and forced her nine-year-old granddaughter to sit beside her lifeless body for a 30 to 40-mile drive. Mitchell then slit the girl’s throat twice, crushed her head with 20-pound rocks, and severed and buried both victims’ heads and hands. On May 8, 2003, a jury in the U.S. District Court for the District of Arizona found Mitchell guilty of numerous offenses, including first degree murder, felony murder, and carjacking resulting in murder, and he was sentenced to death. Mitchell’s execution is scheduled to occur on Dec. 11, 2019. Court of Appeals, Ninth Circuit.

Wesley Ira Purkey violently raped and murdered a 16-year-old girl, and then dismembered, burned, and dumped the young girl’s body in a septic pond. He also was convicted in state court for using a claw hammer to bludgeon to death an 80-year-old woman who suffered from polio and walked with a cane. On Nov. 5, 2003, a jury in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Missouri found Purkey guilty of kidnapping a child resulting in the child’s death, and he was sentenced to death. Purkey’s execution is scheduled to occur on Dec. 13, 2019. Court of Appeals, Eighth Circuit.

Alfred Bourgeois physically and emotionally tortured, sexually molested, and then beat to death his two-and-a-half-year-old daughter. On March 16, 2004, a jury in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas found Bourgeois guilty of multiple offenses, including murder, and he was sentenced to death. Bourgeois’ execution is scheduled to occur on Jan. 13, 2020. Court of Appeals, Fifth Circuit.

Dustin Lee Honken shot and killed five people—two men who planned to testify against him and a single, working mother and her ten-year-old and six-year-old daughters. On Oct. 14, 2004, a jury in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Iowa found Honken guilty of numerous offenses, including five counts of murder during the course of a continuing criminal enterprise, and he was sentenced to death. Honken’s execution is scheduled to occur on Jan. 15, 2020. Court of Appeals, Eighth Circuit.

Now I want to share with you what that the unborn baby did to deserve the death penalty:

It’s ironic that innocent babies in the womb are killed through more brutal and barbaric means than those who used brutal and barbaric means to kill innocent people.
