RUSH LIMBAUGH (HOST): Folks, it is unmistakable that, as life itself becomes cheapened, and the sacrosanct respect for it disappears, none of us is worth anything to anybody. And, if life is worth nothing, then nothing else is going to be worth anything, and it is going to cause -- and I would submit to you it already has caused -- I think abortion is a major factor in twelve- to 15-year-olds murdering each other with guns all over this country. I think the wanton promotion of killing babies cannot possibly not have an impact over the course of years on everybody's perception of life and the importance of it. 

...

If we start cheapening life, and I think we've been doing it since Roe v. Wade was legalized -- made constitutional. Once it became a constitutional right to kill, then we started debating who else can we kill? 

...

Wait until it is discovered that homosexuality is genetic, and wait until prospective parents could be told that their child might be gay at birth. You know who's going to do the fastest 180 from pro-choice to pro-life? The entire homosexual community is going to become pro-life overnight. 

...

I'm just telling you, you start cheapening life this way, and then you cheapen it even further by claiming a baby isn't even a person, a baby is not a human being, then, folks, you're next, we're all next, depending on who these people are, how much power they get, and the basis on which they determine who gets to live and who doesn't. And what if down the road, a bunch of liberals decide, you know, rather than have to put up with a bunch of opposition, a bunch of conservatives, let's just wipe them out. You think that will never happen. It can happen.
