Tiller the Killer Meets his Maker
The notorious late-term abortionist, Dr. George Tiller, was murdered at church on Sunday. This is a sad and unfortunate turn in the long effort to bring to an close his abortion clinic. I am pro-life and so I do not support the killing of Dr. Tiller nor the practice of abortion.
There is an effort underway to paint pro-life people and groups as somehow "responsible" for the murder of Dr. Tiller. I believe responsibility lies elsewhere. In fact, I believe strident pro-abortionists bear the major part of responsibility for this heinous act.
The latest poll indicates the majority of Americans are now pro-life. The more important fact is that a substantial majority have for years been opposed to the grisly late-term abortions performed by the likes of Dr. Tiller. But, politicians and non-elected judges have thwarted the will of the majority.
Again, I do not defend the killing of Dr. Tiller, or any other abortionist, but when politicians who are bought and paid for with abortionists dollars, and judges who gain appointments largely because they are committed to protecting the practice, stand in the way of limitations, restrictions, or even sensible health regulations for abortion clinics, then common sense says that our political system has broken down and unbalanced people become more likely to resort to extreme acts.
Having said that, I will go out on another limb. I was surprised by how little news coverage Dr. Tiller's murder seemed to garner on national basis. If the coverage was truly as little as I perceived, then I believe that is also a sign of how little support there is among the public for keeping late-term abortions available.
To the strident advocates of "a woman's right to choose," I say you need to look in the mirror and ask yourself if you bear some burden in the killing of Dr. George Tiller.
