Skip to comments.No justification
Posted on 06/26/2009 4:35:21 PM PDT by kathsua
In a recent letter to the editor, a writer called all of the O'Reillys, the Terrys and all other visceral voices condemning George Tiller as a baby killer just as guilty as the man who shot Tiller because they "poured hatred into the killer's heart." Is this the same kind of justification used to express all the pro-abortion lunatics running around this country, such as our president? I'm shocked that a person of any religion can justify the killing of babies right up to the moment they are being born and call the act "a medical procedure for those who came to him for help." If this is the kind of help the letter writer thinks is good for our society, are we going to start letting people bring in their elderly parents who are becoming a burden on them so they can be "helped?"
Do you suppose the babies about to be killed were OK with their mothers going to Tiller for help? Dr. Tiller was not, and never had been, in the business to "help" women. He was in the business for the money.
And his death in church (ironic that he even went to church) was probably far less painful to him than the procedures he used. And let's remember that unlike Tiller who could afford guards to protect him, the only protection afforded the most innocent among us is their mothers' wombs.
I would suggest that Tiller's killing was, in essence, only a really late-term abortion.
I imagine that all those babies whose lives were snuffed out are, indeed, in heaven, but I don't think Tiller ended up in the same location. God gave us a special place for people who kill without mercy; it's called hell.
"I wouldn't kill an abortionist myself, but I wouldn't want to impose my moral values on others. No one is for shooting abortionists. But how will criminalizing men making difficult, often tragic, decisions be an effective means of achieving the goal of reducing the shootings of abortionists?
Following the moral precepts of liberals, I believe the correct position is: If you don't believe in shooting abortionists, then don't shoot one."
