DescriptionRepublicans have a long love affair with executing people. They enjoy it so much that a conservative audience at a GOP Debate cheered for executions this past fall. Republicans also have a deep hatred for doctors who perform abortions. They hate it so much that they, led by Bill O’Reilly, actively targeted Dr. George Tiller until one conservative nut job murdered him inside a church. GOP lawmakers have sought to make it legal to kill abortion providers in several states such as South Carolina, Nebraska, South Dakota, and Iowa. Now a Republican lawmaker in North Carolina not only wants to execute abortion doctors, he wants to hang ‘em.

State Rep. Larry Pittman wants to bring back public hangings as a form of execution, and he wants to tighten the noose around the necks of abortion providers. In an email sent to all the members of the general assembly, Pittman said:

“We need to make the death penalty a real deterrent again by actually carrying it out. Every appeal that can be made should have to be made at one time, not in a serial manner. If murderers (and I would include abortionists, rapists, and kidnappers, as well) are actually executed, it will at least have the deterrent effect upon them. For my money, we should go back to public hangings, which would be more of a deterrent to others, as well.”
