Skip to comments.Sarah Palin's Statement on Tiller Murder
Posted on 06/01/2009 8:37:48 AM PDT by rintense
"I feel sorrow for the Tiller family. I respect the sanctity of life and the tragedy that took place today in Kansas clearly violates respect for life. This murder also damages the positive message of life, for the unborn, and for those living. Ask yourself, 'What will those who have not yet decided personally where they stand on this issue take away from today's event in Kansas?'
Regardless of my strong objection to Dr. Tiller's abortion practices, violence is never an answer in advancing the pro-life message."
Governor Sarah Palin
Good statement, BTT!
Anyone on or off the Palin ping, write me.
For instance what is our duty if we were in a room with Dr Tiller and a woman 8 months pregnant when Tiller grabs the foreceps?
I know the question is tough but life ain't easy sometimes.
Very presidential sounding unlike the current occupant of that house.
It is clear cut. Are we a nation of laws or not? Do we really want to go down that road. What other laws can then be violated?
“violence is never an answer in advancing the pro-life message.” True. I would have much preferred Tiller got felled by natural causes like a heart attack or an aneurysm.”
Agreed. But, I am also just as glad this murderer is no longer “practicing” his craft.
An excellent statement, as I expected. I’ve already seen some left wing loons blaming the Tiller killing on Ann Coulter, Bill O’Rilley, and even Gov. Palin. Those on the left are a pathetic bunch of scum.
Have you noticed that 0bama seemed more upset about Tiller being killed than the situation with N. Korea. It’s being reported today that NK has moved a long range missile capable of hitting Alaska to a launch site on the coast.
I couldn’t have said it any better myself.
I know it’s difficult to answer. But I’ll answer where you failed to. I would have to prevent Tiller from killing the baby in that case and suffer the consequences.
Excellent statement. Restrained, and she condemned violence while putting in in the perspective of his activities.
Very good job!
> For instance what is our duty if we were in a room with Dr Tiller and a woman 8 months pregnant when Tiller grabs the foreceps?
You know the answer to that one, I suspect. And while it isn’t the answer we would like it to be in an ideal world, it is the right answer.
Sorry, what's the cutoff between saving one innocent's life vs. another's, when you are present and able to do so?
Where's that popcorn-eating smiley?
Aside from the quality of the message, I believe that it came from Sarah herself; not from a teleprompter.
obviously, in the case of Tiller,
if you have a governor and the AG in your pocket,
you can violate a lot of laws, and he did.
Obama only cares about the liberal agenda and nothing else.
Sarah is a very sharp pol. Don’t know if she’ll get the larger understanding needed for high office but she does know what she is doing and on politics like this she is on the money.
Not yet decided? Why not? The question is not that difficult.
I would wait until the baby is almost out of the womb, push the forceps away, and run away with the baby to a secret location. Repeat 10,000+ times. The tough part would be sneaking into the ventilation shaft that many times.
Actually, I’d have to disagree with you on this one!
First of all, the murderer is probably a nut. But aside from that, he killed one person in what could be considered a crime of passion (he was angered by Tiller’s actions) while Tiller calmly and coolly killed thousands of completely defenseless people - for money.
Everybody is busy praying for Tiller, which certainly doesn’t hurt, but I’m praying for his killer, who needs prayers now to see that what he has done is wrong - because unlike Tiller, Roederer probably wasn’t a cold-blooded habitual killer.
Regardless of my strong objection to Dr. Tiller's abortion practices, violence is never an answer in advancing the pro-life message.
The purpose of the question is simply to demonstrate what unbridled abortion has wrought.
God said we should not murder. St Thomas Acquinas said not to defend innocent human life, including ones own, from evil is a grave evil and sin.
Very difficult situation. I come down as no to murder but also no to standing idly by and wacthing murder. But that's just me.
Sarah for President in 2012!
(Or if Cheney decides to run, VP!)
Seriously, if abortion is
“a hard decision” or “a morally difficult decision”
it is only so because of the destruction of human life.
And if you don’t fall on the side of preserving that life, you’re immoral.
She gets better and better every day. This woman is the ONLY sane voice in Politics today.
OK...I had to do a second look to see what was in front of her mouth on that picture. lol
I would probably reload my empty weapon.
I don’t agree with you. The murderer is guilty but he was - in his own way - defending the babies.
Tiller was murdering for money.
I think motive makes a huge difference.
People stuck in their own heads can’t answer the question. This includes notable philosophers. It’s ultimately a matter of how much you care about people, not so much about pure reason.
Tiller was a psycho-killer. Unborn babies now have a leg up. It’s a shame he was plugged but I’m sure he’ll be happy where he is headed
If you think man is an evolved animal, it might be a difficult question for you.
Otherwise, it’s not difficult at all.
The purpose of the question is simply to demonstrate what unbridled
abortion capitalism has wrought.
The same 'rationale' the left uses for its own propaganda.
That’s why the insane hate her so much.
Tiller was murdering for money......
I heard this account from a woman who was 13 years old when Tiller aborted her. The late abortion was $5000 and she was put on an assembly line. Kind of like one of those dentists that works on four patients at a time (my current one does not lol)
He operated under cover of, not the rule of law, but of the “rule of men” who allowed him, due to monetary and ideological reasons, to ignore laws put in place by the democratic process to restrict the most heinous practices.
So what happens when the next baby killer steps up to the plate? Should he/she also be murdered?
I am sure she will catch heat from freepers, too, because of her statement.
Qu'est que c'est
2 Cor 2:14-16 tells us why they hate her.
Knowledge of Christ is the “scent of death to those who are perishing”.
It would be nice to hear all the serious Presidential candidates from the Republican side say something like “..deplore violence, yada, yada, rule of law, yada, yada, overcome evil with good, yada, yada...but if we had a president who would provide a serious check and balance on the judiciary by allowing the majority to decide abortion policy, then we wouldn’t have this wholesale slaughter going on...”
You should rethink that. Your post is simply unimpressive and ad hominem. If you don’t want to grapple with the tough question, don’t.
I like Sarah, but disagree with her here.
