Posted on 05/31/2009 10:08:54 AM PDT by upchuck
WICHITA, Kan. -- Dr. George Tiller, a Kansas man who became one of the most famous figures in the national debate over abortion, was shot and killed at his church Sunday morning, KAKE-TV reported.
Tiller was walking into Reformation Lutheran Church at 10:03 a.m., when he was shot.
Tiller was pronounced dead when emergency crews arrived, the station reported.
Police were looking for a blue Ford Taurus with a K-State vanity plate, license number 225 BAB. Police described him as a white male in his 50's or 60's, 6'1," 220 lbs, wearing a white shirt and dark pants.
Tiller has committed outrage after outrage and not only gotten away with it, he has made a fortune! Sooner or later this had to happen.
Thou Shalt Not Murder. Both the shooter and the victim will be judged.
You are entitled to your opinion.
What goes around comes around...
Police have a suspect description. The suspect is described as a white male in his 50’s or 60’s with grey hair that is balding in the middle. He is about 6’1” and about 220 pounds and was wearing a white shirt and dark pants.
The suspect was last seen in a light blue Ford Taurus, possibly an early 1990’s model. It has a K-State vanity plate and a Kansas license plate number 225 BAB.
Tiller was the victim of violence before. On June 9, 1986 someone detonated a homemade bomb on the roof of his Wichita clinic. No one was hurt
During the Summer of Mercy in 1991, protesters blocked the entrance to his facility before a federal judge ruled the protesters be arrested.
Two years later, Dr. Tiller was shot outside his clinic the evening of August 19, 1993. His wounds were not life threatening. Abortion opponent Shelly Shannon was convicted of that shooting and sentenced to prison.
One less nazi as far as I am concerned.
Let’s not assume this has anything to do with abortion. Until I hear differently, I’m going with a gay lovers’ spat.
Hope the guy gets away.
What is sad is that abortion is the law of the land. If you want one you can have one. Over 40 million lives have been destroyed since Roe vs. Wade .....
The second thought that went through my mind on 9/11/01 was: "What kind of laws will they pass now."
When I first read this, part of me wondered if some liberal isn’t secretly behind this to get just the outcome you have listed. I used to not be so paranoid, until this surreal reality replaced what used to be. Interesting the timing of this, as it was recently released that according to polls a majority of Americans are anti-abortion/pro-life. Good way to discredit the movement and those beliefs - assassinate an abortionist.
I doubt he does, but a jury could be lenient.
I'm not weeping for the scumbag himself.I haven't the fainest doubt that he is,at this very moment,rotting in the very special place in hell that he so richly earned.
What I'm saying is that this will hurt the anti-abortion *cause*...and hurt it badly.
If you doubt me...just watch.
This will just be used to “justify” more gun control.
Pro-lifers should condemn this as antithetical to their philosophy and beliefs. Hopefully, the perpetrator will be apprehended and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. I will shed no tears that Teller is gone — but MURDER is MURDER.
Now, here’s the “reality check” — ALL of us who “cling to God and guns” are about to be villified and lumped into the same category as this murderer, this killer, this “terrorist.” COUNT ON IT. The Obama Regime has JUST gotten ALL the help they need to confirm Sotomayor, and to begin the process of dismantling the 2nd Amendment and “taking” our guns, as well as restricting the “free speech” of Christians, Conservatives, and critics of all things Washington.
Couldn’t you at least try to do a search? If so, you would have seen this posted just 9 threads down.
“This serial-killer piece of excrement will be held up by every...”
...gun-control nut in America as proof that dangerous people (like foes of baby-killing) should not be allowed to keep and bear arms.
Obama is going to take advantage of this murder to sieze even more control over our society.
I would not even put it past them to commit this murder themselves, as an excuse to sieze power. Reichstag Fire, and all that...
Great minds think alike. ;)

I could not agree more. This will be portrayed by the media as a major crisis and an egregious attack on freedom. As Rahm puts it, "Never let a serious crisis go to waste." The net result? It will merely hasten the day when being pro-life is considered a hate crime.
Sorry - computer hiccup.
No doubt this ‘man’ is responsible for thousands, maybe tens-of-thousands of needless and wanton deaths. If you think his ‘passing’ is a bad thing in the cause of speaking out and ending the practice of abortion, I don’t know what to tell you. I can only say that I shall not mourn his demise, nor shall I judge others.
Gay State, Turret:
You guys celebrating this may just be celebrating the loss of your own freedoms. Don’t be fools. This isn’t good — nor is it right.
Ladies and gentlemen ... the problem was not this guy. The problem was (and is) the law that allows this guy to exist.
No lives were saved with this killing. These women will just go elsewhere. The problem exists today just as it did yesterday ... with the added problem of a bloodthirsty anti-abortion nut running around tarnishing the pro-life image.
Frankly, I don’t give a damn what they say. I suspect more people than would publicly admit it are glad Tiller is dead. I doubt there will be a lot of Doctors lining up to take over his practice.
Sorry Gay State — I think I misapplied my comment to you. Please, forgive me!
But, wasn't this just another late term abortion(?)
If that’s his own car...then he’s not too smart of a killer!
Fair enough. Do we approve of “just another late-term abortion”?
Hearts need to be changed in order to end abortion. This will not change hearts. We are making progress peacefully.
We all hope you are right about that!
I don’t hope he gets away.
I don’t hope a jury is lenient.
THis is premeditated cold blooded murder and he ought to get the chair.
This isn’t for the admonishing for the Lutherans...
Get a clue man, this goof ball killer just handed the media and the rest of the pro-abortion crowd, including lawmakers the best news they have had in years.
This is a lose, lose, lose, for the pro-life movement.
This will do for Obama the same thing that Timothy McVeigh did for Clinton, marginalize his opponents as extremists in the public mind and shut down the developing scrutiny .
Sounds like a post-birth abortion to me.
See post #15.
You, also, are entitled to your opinion. Equivocators and appeasers have something to say, too....Pardon me if it falls on deaf ears.
Show me the link. Do you mean this?
I referenced that thread in reply #1 above.
That thread was one sentence long. I posted this thread because it contains a lot more info.
Right now, a search shows this thread and the one just mentioned.
It’s too bad the suspect didn’t poke a roto rooter through his skull and then suck him into a vacuum cleaner instead of just shooting the bastard.
Like they were not going to try this anyway.Come on.
Bad news. Tiller’s now a martyr and all pro-lifers are dangerous gun- nuts.
It’s a bad end for a bad man; and it’s a bad thing. Immoral is immoral, murder is murder, a wrong doesn’t cancel a wrong.
