Phila. Inquirer 8/16/93 MOBILE, Ala - A Roman Catholic priest wants to place an ad that labels the slaying of abortion doctors "justifiable homicide," a newspaper reported yesterday. The Rev. David Trosch, who heads St. John the Baptist Catholic Church in Magnolia Springs, designed the advertisement that shows a doctor about to perform an abortion, and another man with a gun pointed at the doctor. Two words accompany the drawing: "Justifiable Homicide." Father Trosch, 57, attempted to run the advertisement in the Mobile Press-Register last week, but the newspapers refused. "If 100 doctors need to die to save over 1 million babies [sic] a year, I see it as a fair trade," the priest told the paper in an interview published yesterday. He said he had thought of killing a doctor himself, but "only remotely." Archbishop Oscar Lipscomb, head of the archdiocese that includes Mobile, was in Denver for the appearances by Pope John Paul II and could not be reached for comment. =================================================================== Christopher Baker 19-Aug-93 09:59pm cb> another doctor who performs abortions was shot today [CNN just cb> flashed a satellite report]. this one was in Wichita, Kansas. cb> 4 or 5 shots fired by a woman but only an arm wound. cb> cb> open season?
