In case you missed it, Dr. Geoge Tiller of Wichita, Kansas was assassinated yesterday morning as he performed his duties as usher of his local church, handing out programs. Tiller was the eighth abortion provider murdered since 1977. Tiller was shot by a 51-year old lunatic pro-life fanatic, who apparently decided that pro-life only applies to fetuses.
I expect to see Christian groups bemoan this particular form of persecution of one of their own...
Why did Tiller deserve to die? The nutjob felt like Tiller deserved to die for providing women with a legalized medical procedure, one that he was one of the few Doctors brave enough to still face the heat for giving. Want to know what this guy faced? How about being shot in both arms, having his clinic bombed, and having constant protests and vandalism against his clinic?
Professional blowhard Bill O'Reilly has devoted 29 segments over the last 4 years to demonizing Tiller. O'Reilly ought to man up and point out exactly how brave this doctor was.
FWIW, I think the Tiller assassination speaks to a larger point. These crazy ass abortion fanatics are learning that no one cares about the issue. It is a moot point. Roe v. Wade ain't changing. W and Rove sold you a bill of goods and even they wouldn't deliver on it. These yahoos know there time has come to pass and they are desperate. Sorry, suckers. Gather up the black powder and head to the hills. Us civilized folk have moved on.
And to Mr. Scott Roeder, I hope you enjoy the very special hell God has for those who purport to do his service while committing the ultimate sin.
