This was how the fight to end slavery went, it had its moments of violence before the civil war. So it is not suprising.

It only takes one of us to go whacko and damage our cause. This incident could set back the pro life movement for years.

If you kill thousands of innocent unborn children, like George Tiller did through the abortion procedure, there is no common ground. Tiller was a human monster of the first order.

I meant this “prominent doctor and abortion rights activist” - odd wording.

I see history repeating itself. As there was violence during the time that there was the efforts to end slavery, then it is going to happen with the efforts to end abortion.

moments of violence before the civil war

Exactly the thought I had in reading an earlier post on the subject. This is only the beginning.

Common ground? Compromise? What does that mean? That kind of talk always reminds me of the Judgment of Solomon. Just cut the baby in half, and split the difference.

Some solution. By their responses to that suggestion, the two women, as Solomon intended, revealed clearly where they stood on this basic moral issue.

A more relevant point in all of this than most people will give credit for.

Even a crazy person can't accept those values.

OK FOLKS...it is now time to come together on the “right”. As much as I do not like it when someone is killed, Tillers death is not what I am addressing here. The left will use this against the right (we are bad, terrorist, extremist, etc.). Our job is not to play defense, it is to NOT ALLOW them to box us in to begin with. You know they will try to lump us all together with the shooter. Be vigilant. Do not allow them to categorize us as one in the same!!! You now know how the game will be played, stand firm.

Then you'd better not do anything conservative ever, because, there will always be a whacko and if there isn't a whacko, the media will find one.

“prominent doctor and abortion rights activist”

Yep, that sure is odd wording, in fact it is twisted wording.

Prominent executioner and abortion rights activist would be more like it.

OK folks, here we go!

The DHS “domestic terrorists” memo said that “Pro-Lifers” were on the list, and here’s proof!

Another one of Rahm’s “crises” that should not go to waste! And although the infamous “memo” was pulled, the seeds of doubt & mistrust were planted in the minds of many sheeple. Get ready for a media blitz against the pro-life cause, regardless of Operation Rescue’s responsible Press Release.

Vigilance, warriors! The persecution continues, but don’t give up. There are many who will stand & do exploits because they know their God. This is OUR time!!

Plus also study up on the period of the years leading up to the Civil War, the Underground Railroad, the fight to end slavery. Where I am from, CT, I have been to Farmington,CT, where some of the old homes on old Main Street were around the time when the Underground Railroad was in progress. We are starting to see history begin to repeat itself. There was even violence erupting over the efforts to end slavery.

How many years have babies been legally slaughtered on street corners across America? Try over 36 years at the rate of one every 20 seconds. Is that enough time and dismembered children for you?

Set back? So what! As least Tiller won't be killing children tomorrow. And if this act strikes fear in the hearts of other baby-killers, it's a wonderful thing.

This guy was the same as the Nazis in my book.

I'm not sad -- this monster had plenty of time to repent.

Barry will probably order all flags lowered to half-staff and give him a state funeral.

Even 0bamba didn’t claim there was any common ground on abortion. Instead, he used his appearance to play the old Marxist “liberation theology” game, trying to make Christians his allies by harping on “poverty,” “social justice,” and other concerns of religious liberals like Notre Dame President Father Jenkins.

The good news and confort is that 51-52 percent of the population is now pro-life, which came out a week or two ago.

What are they talking about? Obama's position is if George Tiller had survived an abortion than it would be okay to kill him.

Gee....Right after that idiot released that crap, four black Muslim ex convicts tried to blow up a NYC synagogue and planed an attempt to shoot down a plane. Were we warned that black Muslim ex convicts were a threat to our National Security?
What's it going to take to get a new head for the DHS?
