A Republican candidate for Sheriff (of all things) in New Hampshire reserved his right to use deadly force, if necessary, to stop abortions. When it was pointed out that abortions are in fact legal (at least for now), he said “There’s a difference between legal and lawful” and pointed to slavery as an activity that was legal at one time in our history but was unlawful under our Constitution.
Abortion is legal, it’s true
But it’s also unlawful to do.
What’s “lawful” the sheriff will decide
And he thinks it’s infanticide.
To be sure that the sheriff succeeds
He’ll do whatever he needs.
Here’s a warning to the accused:
Deadly force might have to be used!
