non sequitur of the day

From Kathleen Parker's latest column:
Pro-choicers are wrong to dress up abortion as only a woman's choice, and pro-lifers are wrong to insist that women who choose abortion are "baby killers." No one gets an abortion for the pleasure of it.
No one dumps their just-born baby in a dumpster for the pleasure of it either, does that mean they aren't baby killers? The ancient Spartans used to take certain infants out and leave them on a hillside to die of exposure. They didn't do it for the pleasure of it, so I guess we can't call them baby killers either. Some ancient people's used to sacrifice infants to their gods, but since they didn't do it for pleasure they aren't baby killers.
