Enablers of Dr. Tiller's Assassination

The Associated Press.

In a news article about the assassination of Dr. George Tiller, AN OB/GYN, the focus is on the history, actions, hopes, and needs of "anti-abortion" groups.

Also, the only reaction statements deemed newsworthy by the AP are from Operation Rescue, something about a Mr. Tiller, and from former Kansas Attorney General, patient chart thief Phill Kline.

[What, no statement from Rachelle Shannon who shot and wounded Dr. Tiller in both arms in 1993, or from Operation Rescue founder Randall Terry, or James Charles Kopp, Dr. Barnett Slepian's killer?]

A follow-up AP article details how Dr. Tiller's assassination is all about the fears, needs, and goals of the "abortion foes."

Assassinations by domestic terrorists of Ob/Gyns who provide safe and effective medical care to their patients do not happen in a vacuum.

They happen with the complicity of MSM, politicians, and ordinary people.

As long as we pretend that those who want to ban a safe and effective medical procedure because of their personal beliefs have a legitimate say in the medical care of female patients, we'll continue to gather bits of those who provide that medical care off of pavements and church floors.

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.

Thank you so much for this post. Dr. Tiller was a kind, loving man who courageously helped numerous mothers, wives, sister, aunts, daughters who needed his help. Many of these women (many already mothers) were facing the heart wrenching decision to terminate a pregnancy that they never expected they would need to - either because of severe fetal distress or because the woman's health was in danger. No woman becomes pregnant thinking they will need to go through this and the stories of individual women with families that have struggled through a late term abortion are so painful to read.

As a mother, an advocate for women and a supporter of access to care, I so appreciate this post. Dr. Tiller was loved by his family, by the women and their partners & families he helped. Despite those who seek to foment more violence, despite the emptiness of comments like the one above, my heart goes out to the family of Dr. Tiller and the women who have and will face such a gut wrenching decision in the future.

Debra J.M. Smith,

Do you have any evidence that President Obama does not, indeed, care about the fact that Dr. Tiller provided safe and effective medical care to countless patients?

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.

Despite the pic, it's possible you are not an adult, which might explain your ignorance of anatomy, physiology, etc.

No matter; it's never too late to learn some basics.

You should know that wombs are female internal organs, not free-floating safe place[s] of peace for a baby. Also, in medicine, there's a thing called "consent"--the patient, not the physician, makes the decision to terminate a pregnancy.

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.

Good thing then that this is not about you, and that you are not a Christian, and as such, how you feel isn't terribly relevant.
