Save the Fetus - Kill the Doctor
Dr. George Tiller, age 67, was shot and killed today IN HIS CHURCH in Wichita. Dr. Tiller performs late term abortions and his clinic was the site of many anti-abortion protesters over the years. He was shot in both arm in 1993 and recovered. His clinic has been severely vandalized with protesters cutting through the roof and inflicting water damage. He has been sued and harassed. Now he is dead.
Dr. Tiller's website states "Women and families are intellectually, emotionally, spiritually and ethically competent to struggle with complex health inssues--including abortion--and come to decisions that are appropriate for themselves".
Will someone please explain to me why it is wrong to abort a fetus but it is OK to kill someone in cold blood? Here are some hateful comments made by those who celebrate his murder:
"Don't ask God to have mercy on this man. His soul belongs in Hell", "Sorry but it's a little hard to work up a lot of sympathy for him. Maybe a few more babies will see the light of day now." "Payback is a bitch".
I'm really scratching my head over this one. I just don't get it at all.
