Anti-abortion rights bloggers suggest Norway bomber’s views on abortion relevant to massacre

In the search for answers for Friday’s bombing of government offices and shooting at a political summer camp in Oslo, Norway, that killed more than 80 people, reporters are digging into the background of Anders Behring Breivik, the 32-year-old Norwegian man being charged for the massacre.

The New York Times reported that “authorities” have described Breivik as a “right-wing fundamentalist Christian, a gun-loving Norwegian obsessed with what he saw as the threat of multiculturalism and Muslim immigration to the cultural and patriotic values of his country.” (More recent accounts paint him as potentially being insane.)

Some bloggers who identify with right-wing, Christian politics have attacked the “right-wing fundamentalist Christian” descriptions of Breivik and tried to paint him as more of a “liberal.” One charge in particular that has hit the conservative blogosphere is Breivik’s supposed support of abortion in certain instances.

The online publication LifeSiteNews published a blog post Monday titled “Norway shooter supported abortion for disabled babies.” LifeSiteNews attacks the “fundamentalist Christian” label portrayed by the “mainstream media” and writes that Breivik “did not consider himself a Christian believer, but that he was a mason, held such anti-Christian views as supporting abortion for disabled babies, and that he also hired a prostitute prior to his killing rampage.”

The blog refers to Breivik’s hefty “manifesto” (PDF), where in one section he discusses his views on abortion, writing:

Abortion should only be allowed in case of rape, if the mother’s life is in danger, or if the baby has mental or physical disabilities. The liberal zones may be exempt by this rule.

LifeSiteNews, however, does not mention Breivik’s views on contraception or sex education, points on which he appears to be more in line with the positions of anti-abortion rights advocates:

Contraceptive pills and equivalent methods will be severely restricted in conservative territories. The liberal zones may be exempt by this rule.

[...]

Sexual education in schools should be limited to that of 1950/60 Western Europe. The liberal zones may be exempt by this rule.

The blog Logos published a post titled, “The Identity Ideology of Anders Breivik. Not a Christian Fundamentalist.” Logos writes:

No fundamentalist would subscribe to this theory, and all fundamentalists condemn abortion without exceptions.

Other media outlets have pointed to Breivik’s manifesto as proof that he is mentally unstable and that his style of thinking is similar to Unabomber Ted Kaczynski.

Another blogger simply blames the practice of abortion for Friday’s tragedy.

In a blog post titled “The Opposite of Pro-Life Is What Just Happened in Norway,” RedState blogger Repair_Man_Jack on Monday compared Breivik’s disdain for human life to that of abortion-rights supporters:

[Breivik] had convinced himself what he was doing was noble and decent. It wasn’t like he was killing anything that had value.

[...]

We live in a world where we are perfectly happy to abort millions of children and then DEMAND to know WHY Anders Behring Breivik became the human sarcoma that he truly is. We live in a world where people praise Jack Kevorkian as some sort of efficiency expert, but we have outraged news stories when someone in Seattle shoots his fellow man for insulting the paint job on his car. I mean it’s rough sanding down the frame and applying a new coat of primer. Give the guy an efficiency ribbon. Al Gore decries our global overpopulation anyway.
