(Newser) – Ultraconservative comic Victoria Jackson has struck again. On her Facebook page she is all but comparing Connecticut mass murderer Adam Lanza to the millions of American women who have had abortions, Radar reports. "My friend Jim Riley posted: ‘Wasn’t the Connecticut killer just doing what abortionists do every day?'" wrote the SNL alum. "'It’s a wonder we don’t have more 20-year-old 'dads' doing what women and doctors have been an accomplice to for years in America.'"

Jackson went after President Obama, too: "Obama dramatically wiped a tear as he said, ‘The majority of those who died today were children—beautiful little kids ... They had their entire lives ahead of them,'" and added, "YEAH OBAMA. SAME AS THE MILLION BABIES YOU HAD ABORTED THIS YEAR. ARE YOU CRYING FOR THEM?!" That post alone has attracted nearly 600 comments so far, many of them outraged. "Using a huge tragedy as an excuse to promote your own (deluded) political and religious views?" one reads. "You make me indescribably angry."
