Candidate for Sheriff Calls Use of Deadly Force “Appropriate” to Stop an Abortion


Frank Szabo is running to be a county sheriff in New Hampshire. The only problem is that he’s not a big fan of following laws himself. Szabo has repeatedly stated that deadly force would be an appropriate way to stop an abortion from happening because “Just because a piece of legislation says it’s legal to murder the unborn doesn’t make it lawful.”

Via the Bedford Patch:

“The big issue here is the sheriff is supposed to protect all of its citizens,” he said. “Just because a person is not born yet doesn’t mean he or she shouldn’t have same level of protection. Someone needs to stand up and tell federal and state officials they’re wrong if it’s in the best interest of citizens … but my main point is deadly force is always a last resort.”

Oh, a last resort. Much better. Wouldn’t want to jump straight to the murdering, right?

In case this sounds too crazy to be true, yes, there is a press release.

Frank W. Szabo, candidate for Sheriff of Hillsborough County, announced to his supporters last night his position on abortion. The County Sheriff is duty-bound and fully authorized to protect the Citizens, their property and their Rights. That includes all Citizens. A Citizen’s Rights are Natural Rights and unalienable simply by virtue of the Citizen being alive. Life begins at conception. Abortion on demand is murder. Once elected, Sheriff Szabo will arrest anyone involved in the murder of a Citizen of Hillsborough County. For those confused about this position in relation to Roe v. Wade, Frank points out the fact that there have been many court decisions which were unconstitutional and unlawful. The Office of Sheriff requires that the Constitution be honored and obeyed in agreement with Common Law. Aborting otherwise healthy fetuses violates both.

Sadly, Szabo isn’t an anomaly. There are entire factions advocating that as they deem Roe v. Wade to be unconstitutional, people should take the law into their own hands.  The “Ignore Roe” movement provides a long list of various ways that a president, the governor, attorney’s generals, and legislatures could simply pretend the ruling doesn’t exist. Now sheriffs are apparently being recruited into the movement as potential enforcers.

The solution is state sovereignty and each county acting in accordance with the principles established in the 10th Amendment. It’s you working with your county sheriff and locally elected officials to stand up for the Bill of Rights and to stand against the out of control federal government and its agencies.

The bottom line answer is your county sheriff. Ultimately, he is the one who will decide what is and what is not enforced in your county. He has the authority and is oath bound duty to interpose himself on your behalf to protect you from all enemies, both foreign and domestic. He is the people’s protector. 

The people’s protector.  At least on the laws he agrees with.

    This guy sounds like he subscribes, at least partially, to the whole Sovereign Citizen ideology whereby the county sheriff is the only “real” authority.  Let’s hope that he doesn’t get into office.
