George Tiller, the Wichita doctor who became a national lightning rod in the debate over abortion, was shot to death this morning as he walked into church services.
Tiller was shot just after 10 a.m. at Reformation Lutheran Church at 7601 E. 13th, where he was a member of the congregation. Witnesses and a police source confirmed Tiller was the victim.
No information has been released about whether a suspect is in custody.
This story, that headline immediately brought to mind this cartoon about a previous abortionist's murder:
Yes, this murder should be condemned by all.
I do not believe that George Tiller was a good man. His clinics were responsible for thousands upon thousands of deaths of unborn and preborn babies and commonly, even as recently as two months ago, delivered yet another victim of a botched abortion to a hospital emergency room. He was one of the most prolific late-term abortion clinics in the country once making Wichita, KS "The Abortion Capital of America."
He was however, politically protected through the abortion lobby and due to his prolific fundraising and so was never properly brought to justice for his multitude violations of the few abortion laws that stand.
Fox News' Bill O'Reilly covered Tiller's crimes and activities extensively even inviting women to the show who had had abortions performed by Tiller as teenage girls, to describe their terrible ordeals.
But his death does not serve any purpose for the pro-Life movement which has very few friends at all in the MSM.
I have no doubt that Tiller's killer will be painted by them with the broad brush label of being a "Christian/conservative/extremist".
This is no more properly analagous than painting Al Gore the same as Ted "Unabomber" Kaczynski when he bombed in the name of global warming...
or all environmentalists with the same brush when Manson family member Squeaky Fromme tried to assassinate Gerald Ford to save the redwoods...
...don't hold your breath expecting to hear any different however.
