I don't think it hurts the movement.
Most people are willing to at least contemplate a message of love and life. A message of love and life is hard for opponents to make fun of and sneers against a message of love and life make the opponent look mean-spirited.
When someone assassinates someone, whatever their message was is lost in their action. Minds slam shut. Their message is tainted by their evil action. Their movement is associated with their action...and not the message.
The militia movement is an example. They went from liberty loving survivalists to the people who spawned the evil baby-killing Timothy McVeigh. Their movement stopped dead in its tracks at that point.
The term "Pro-Life assassin" will not ring true to anybody if they actually think about it.
If the fears are true about this being motivated by abortion....it is not good for the Pro-Life people who spend time trying to get out a "Pro-Life" message. We want people to think of innocent babies when they hear "Pro-Life"....not assassins and bombers.
sorry...not with you on this one...
I have no sympathy for his shooting..zero
