Video: New Hampshire Sheriff Candidate Frank Szabo Promises to Use 'Deadly Force' to Stop Abortions
Frank Szabo, who is running for Hillsborough County Sheriff in New Hampshire, has promised that if elected, he will arrest anyone involved in an abortion and will even use deadly force (video below).
When asked by a reporter about his position, Szabo told WMUR-TV: "I would respond specifically by saying that if someone is under threat, a full-grown human being, if they’re under threat, what should the sheriff do? Everything in their power to prevent them from being harmed."
"I would hope that it wouldn’t come to that, as with any situation where someone is in danger, but again, specifically talking about elective abortions and late-term abortions, that is an act that needs to be stopped."
Szabo also told CBS News: “Deadly force is the last thing law enforcement should be using, if a citizen’s life is in danger they should be protected. If there is no other choice, that’s what’s needed to protect the citizen.”
"Why is there a difference between someone who is 20 years old and their life is in danger and someone who is nine months in utero."
Szabo is running against sheriff James Hardy in a Republican primary next month.
