Only if we let it. Whenever a pro-lifer hears the movement condemned because of the actions of this one person, they need to be clear that the pro-life movement condemns murder, period.
This was not done by, condoned, or sanctioned by the pro-life movement, it was done by an individual.
I will certainly condemn this horrible murder.
But I cannot mourn it.
Take your condescending victimhood somewhere else.
Blackpaint the pro-life movement as terrorist. Gun control. Making a martyr out of Tiller. Covering for Sebelius and Sotomayor. The list goes on.
The feds will spend our tax dollars to fortify and guard them.
Thank you for posting all the way from THAILAND with this pearl of wisdom.
The real man bites dog story here is that Tiller was on his way to church!
“Just saw this on Fox News. Wow. This will not help the pro-life cause.”
What if we framed the debate the way KOS and the Democrat-worshipping media would?
Say it’s not “Murder”, but a “Very-late term Abortion”. Would that make them feel better???
Dont mischaracterize the movement you purport to understand. Its the pro-innocent-life movement.
Tiller didnt qualify.
Would you suggest we gun down vigilante style all those who violate God’s laws? Come on, you KNOW this was wrong. Wrong, wrong, wrong. Wrong morally, wrong tactics, wrong for the pro-innocent life movement.
There are MUCH better ways to achieve a much greater impact. The person that did this was stupid and would have much better served the movement by supporting the removal of Tiller’s license and stronger pro-life laws, locally and eventually nationally.
We are a nation of laws - unless we’re prepared to spit upon the Constitution and the Scriptures (do we know what the Torah is??) and I don’t think any of us in the pro innocent life movement is going to advocate that.
They see him as a hero? Hey, even Hitler had people justifying what he did. You can create your own world and justify anything. They have done that with the murder of the most innocent and see nothing wrong with it.
You could start a thread citing Tiller’s many accomplishments. You know...sort of as an antidote to this one.
Wasn’t really trying to be very sneaky, eh? Makes me wonder if he’ll be found alive.
Exactly, it was done by a MURDERER who has no more respect for the sanctity of human life than Tiller did.
And the Irgun were terrorists for hitting the King David hotel. Right?
He goes to this church because they support abortion:
From the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America’s website:
Abortion (Lutheran view)
The ELCA Social Statement on Abortion , adopted by the 1991 Churchwide Assembly, acknowledges the issue’s complexity, noting that it “evokes strong and varied convictions about ... human life and responsibility, freedom and limits.” The statement also offers useful guidance: “A developing life in the womb does not have an absolute right to be born, nor does a pregnant woman have an absolute right to terminate a pregnancy. The concern for both the life of the woman and the developing life in her womb expresses a common commitment to life.”
A last resort
“The strong Christian presumption is to preserve and protect life,” the statement says. “Abortion ought to be an option only of last resort. Therefore, as a church we seek to reduce the need to turn to abortion. ...We also deplore the circumstances that lead a woman to consider abortion as the best option available to her.”
The statement adds: “The church recognizes that there can be sound reasons for ending a pregnancy through induced abortion.” These are the threat to a woman’s physical life; when pregnancy has resulted from rape, incest or sexual violence; and fetal abnormalities incompatible with life.
Basic faith convictions undergird the ELCA statement. Created in God’s image, we see all of life as a mysterious, awesome gift. As a community of forgiven sinners, Christians are free to make just and caring choices. In fact, the statement says, “we have both the freedom and the obligation to engage in serious deliberation on moral matters.” A compassionate community, praying and standing with those in struggle, is called neither to judge nor justify but to support people making difficult moral decisions.

This was a post-birth abortion!
Then we have to make the case that this killer is no more representative of the pro-life movement as a whole than Theodore Kascynsky (killed 3, injured 23) was representative of all environmentalists or Al Gore supporters.
I had the same thought.
Perhaps, but it is good for the babies he was planning to murder this week..
I am personally opposed to the murder of a lower than scum abortionist.
