Judge Roberts should feel lucky that Ohio abortionist Carol Westfall does not sit on the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas described the unsubstantiated attacks on him during his nomination hearing as a "high tech lynching." Ms. Westfall, executive director of two abortion clinics in Ohio, called for the actual lynching of a female judge who upheld commonsense legislation dealing with parental notification and informed consent of women regarding the consequences of and alternatives to abortion.

Despite knowing about the new abortion regulations since 1998, abortion clinics claim they are unprepared to follow the new guidelines.

What these "clinics" were unprepared for was a judge who ended seven years of litigation by the ACLU.

Reacting to the U.S. District Court in Cincinnati ruling, Director Westfall said, "My opinion is the judge should be lynched."

I am sure Ms. Westfall and the ACLU feels betrayed since they know the courts are their only hope for imposing their radical pro-abortion on the American people.

Ms. Westfall should perhaps worry less about performing more abortions and more about her own future. Threatening a federal judge can carry a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison and a fine of $250,000.
