Sadly, though, he probably has an assistant who will be proud to carry on the evil work.
Tragic, maybe. It is the crime of murder, definitely. But if he were alive I’d want to ask him why he loved abortion so much? no sarcasm intended
Well said. I’m afraid it is too late.
Here is what Daily Kos people say:

I hope they throw the book at the extreme wing of the anti-abortion movement — the wing that believes that bombing clinics and shooting providers is the way to win this debate.
I hope we can use many of the anti-terrorism laws and resources to combat this menace.

Dr. Tiller spent much of his time being persecuted and prosecuted by the wingnut right. To have endured what he did all these years and to be murdered for it is truly a heartbreaking loss.
Hi, my name is Auntie Neo Kawn and I’m a recovering wingnut.

He lived a hero, he knew he was a hero, and he died a hero. He showed the bravery that most military fetishist wingnuts can only dream of. To find someone who will replace him, the second question to ask, after “are you qualified,” is “are you a hero?”
They tortured people to get false confessions to fraudulently justify invasion of Iraq.

greatness is often best measured by the amount of hatred that one is willing to endure for the sake of protecting their convictions.

“actually, the fear this strikes may thwart some babykillers”
Yup...that’s exactly what happened the last time some abortionists were taken out. Many “doctors” left this field of endeavor and the clinics were bellyaching that they couldn’t find anyone to do hit-jobs on babies.
Well, we all truly know deep down inside that the US Constitution really doesn't mean anything anymore.
It’s Sunday, all the newsies are sleeping off their hangovers.
I strongly disagree.
We do not have to walk on egg shells here.
Tiller deserved to be punished, however:
THE COUNTRY DESERVED A GOVERNMENT STRONG ENOUGH TO PUNISH TILLER UNDER THE RULE OF LAW!
It is our country that failed, in this matter, every bit as much as the shooter failed to let the system work, it is the system, itself, that HAS NOT WORKED -— yet!
If empathy is a sought-after trait in a Supreme Court justice, it should also be appropriate for a potential juror.
Make that a jury of two for nullification.
There are way too many bad posts here.
I couldn’t agree with you more.
My first speculation was along those lines. Somebody's wife, girlfriend or daughter suffered serious emotional damage post-abortion. Non-random murder is usually over something personal.
It's less likely (but certainly quite possible) the shooter didn't have a personal attachment, and was acting "on principle." (scare quotes for obvious reasons, I'm sure honest readers understand the sort of person meant to be described by that phrase).
Amen. Well stated.
It was pure luck -—
Went on my email, noticed a “breaking news” item from the Wichita Eagle.
I ignore 99% of them.
Not this time!
I shuddered and knew it was big.
And it was.
Funny you should say that.
I wouldn’t put it past this administration to stage an event like this to advance their agenda.
I wonder if they will at least close down his abortion mills for a few days “In Memoriam”?
