On Dr. George Tiller's Death

One of three doctors in these United States who perform late term abortions was murdered over the weekend. Dr. George Tiller was a target in the past of protest and another assassination attempt. In addition to the damage this does to his community, his family, and his congregation (Tiller was murdered while at church) - this does major damage to the "pro-life" movement.

Any time an advocate of abortion is murdered, it damages the pro-life movement. Opposition can take the form of protest, letter writing, pushing for legislation, etc - but the taking of another person's life is contrary to the type of movement that pro-life supporters are endorsing. Taking a man's life in order to further your political agenda is never right. As the National Right to Life Committee puts it -
...the National Right to Life Committee unequivocally condemns any such acts of violence regardless of motivation. The pro-life movement works to protect the right to life and increase respect for human life. The unlawful use of violence is directly contrary to that goal.
It diminishes a movement when people use violence to intimidate or quell political opposition. It is especially detrimental when that movement relies on its strong support for the sanctity of human life. I hope that this act of senseless violence does not cause an ideology that in its purest form is based in love - to be diminished or destroyed.

Obama said, "However profound our differences as Americans over difficult issues such as abortion, they cannot be resolved by heinous acts of violence." --If Obama only cared that much about the countless babies who died at the hands of that abortionist...

A family member said, "Today we mourn the loss of our husband, father and grandfather. Today's event is an unspeakable tragedy for all of us and for George's friends and patients. This is particularly heart wrenching because George was shot down in his house of worship, a place of peace." Wow, how about the wombs that all of those babies were in? The womb is supposed to be a safe place of peace for a baby. But that monster would intrude and kill each one of them, with no remorse.

And I do not feel sorry for a family who loved a murderer. And I sure do NOT feel sorry for a church that had no problem allowing a murderer to attend.
