(PIX11)-- A prominent pro-life Republican in South Carolina has a plan to stop an Ebola outbreak in the United Nations.

Kill anyone who gets it.

Todd Kincannon, the former executive director of the South Carolina GOP went on a Twitter tirade this weekend.

His first tweet read: "People with Ebola in the US need to be humanely put down immediately."

Then in a following Tweet: 'The protocol for a positive Ebola test should be immediate execution and sanitation of the whole area. That will save lives."

He unloaded about a half a dozen other really hateful messages.

He blames the spread of Ebola on the people of Africa for: "Eating each other."

    I wouldn’t call it “hateful” just cold bloodedly pragmatic. HOWEVER some 20% or more survive Ebola, and their blood could be used to make vaccines. As for “pro life” that unfortunate term was invented decades ago specifically to not sound “negative” like “anti abortion” sounds. I prefer “anti abortion” it should not only be illegal but abortionists should get the death penalty. Using the term “pro life” allowed the anti abortion movement to get hijacked by anti death penalty and anti war (even when war is a good idea) people.

    This fellow is I think mistaken. By the time an Ebola patient is identified as such, they are already under isolation and no serious threat to anyone. Someone with this diagnosis who runs away however, should probably be put down. But you can hardly call him hypocritical or anti life, because the reason for his statements is to save lives that would be endangered.
