Kansas abortion doctor murdered

George Tiller, the Kansas doctor whose clinic is one of only a handful in the country willing to perform late-term abortions, was shot to death this morning walking into church.

In 1993, he was shot in both arms in an attempt to stop him from doing his job. Last month, vandals caused thousands of dollars in damage to his clinic.

And today, he was murdered. In front of his church. Presumably by “pro-life” activists acting in the name of God.

The fact that the perpetrators of these attacks are usually American, white, and Christian doesn’t make them any less terrorists.

  1. Ugh.

    Seriously, what part of pro-LIFE makes it ok to murder adults? Where’s the disconnect?

    One comment on Boston.com, I read them for the entertainment factor and so I don’t forget the level of ignorance and narrow-minded-ness in the world, said: It was a late term abortion finally coming to fruition. I’m assuming to justify the killing – ‘cept, you’re against late-term abortion, no? So, that would still make this wrong.

    Righ, so, ugh.

  2. I guess there was a lot of those late-term abortion “jokes” going around at various sites, but I was already so ready to hurt things that I tried to see as little of it as possible. It seems ideologues have an amazing capacity for doublethink. Or maybe just an amazing tolerance for hypocrisy.
