MOBILE, Ala - A Roman Catholic priest wants to place an ad that labels
the slaying of abortion doctors "justifiable homicide," a newspaper
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.
