Hyperbole much?

I haven't said much (if anything) about the George Tiller murder because, frankly (and I don't want to offend anyone here who feels passionately about the subject) abortion isn't one of my main issues. I have qualms about it, sure, and I think Roe is terrible Constitutional law, but it's just not really something I think about a lot.

All of that said, this is just a leeeeetle bit over the top:

A Nebraska abortion provider has likened the murder of fellow late-term abortion Dr. George Tiller to the assassination of this country's most renowned civil rights leader. The Washington Times reports that Dr. LeRoy Carhart says: "This is the equivalent of Martin Luther King being assassinated. This is the equivalent of Pearl Harbor, the sinking of the Lusitanian [sic] and any other major historic event where we've tolerated the intolerable for too long."
Um, really? I have no idea what MLK thought about abortion, but I suspect that as a clergyman, he might have disapproved of it. Especially the late-term variety. But comparing Tiller's murder to the events that plunged our country into two World Wars? Yeah, that's kind of fucking stupid. Dumbass.
