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.

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.

Let’s not assume this has anything to do with abortion. Until I hear differently, I’m going with a gay lovers’ spat.

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 .....

GSC has a valid point.

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.

You are entitled to your opinion.

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.

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.

...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...

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.

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.

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.

Murder is wrong, period, regardless of who commits it. Rahm Emmanuel, Obama, et. al. will all use this as an example of how “hypocritical” “Christians” are, as well as to further alienate religion. Say goodbye to all portions of the First Amendment.

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.

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.
