Posted on 05/31/2009 11:38:34 AM PDT by Clintonfatigued
Late-term abortion doctor George Tiller, a prominent advocate for abortion rights wounded by a protester more than a decade ago, was shot and killed Sunday at his church in Wichita, a city official said.
A City Hall official who spoke on condition of anonymity because he wasn't authorized to speak about the case told The Associated Press that the 67-year-old doctor was killed Sunday morning at Reformation Lutheran Church.
Police spokesman Gordon Bassham would not confirm the victim's identity pending notification of relatives. He said the shooting occurred at 10:03 a.m. and the gunman fled the scene in a 1993 powder blue Ford Taurus registered in another part of the state.
Bassham said no suspects were in custody. He said it is not clear whether one or more suspects were involved. Capt. Brent Allred said police were looking for a gunman who fled in a 1993 light blue Ford Taurus registered in Merriam.
Anti-abortion group Operation Rescue issued a statement denouncing the shooting.

Obama Says A Baby Is A Punishment
The idea that a late-term abortion doctor goes to church just boggles my mind.
This is horrible. Not only was a life murdered in a house of worship, but the entire pro-life movement will be smeared by the radical feminists and news media.
Murder is bad so I would have preferred that the guy crushing living fetuses brains for a living not get killed but overall I feel as sad today as I was when Saddam Hussein was hanged which on a scale of 1-10 is about a -0.5
1. More gun control laws;
2. More "hate crime" legislation. Soon it will be a felony to think an abortionist is a murderer.
“This is horrible. Not only was a life murdered in a house of worship, but the entire pro-life movement will be smeared by the radical feminists and news media.”
Isn’t it amazing when one right wing nut does something horrible, we are ALL horrible, but when a majority of some of our ‘minorities’ create havoc day after day (most not reported), they are just ‘victims’?
A murderer is murdered....at his church no less. If the “dr” had been routinely murdering adults he wouldn’t get any sympathy.
The fallout will be so ugly.
“.......but the entire pro-life movement will be smeared by radical feminists and news media.”
As opposed to what other day of the week?
Seriously, why do you still care about what they say? The day our side stops caring about what the leftists say, and starts boldly telling the truth is the day things begin to turn around. You can walk on eggshells, worried about what the left might say. I couldn’t care less.
How the HELL do you KNOW who killed him?? It could be a jealous husband or a HITMAN from the left to GET THE ISSUE to THEIR SIDE! Geesh.....get a grip.
Pro-Death Radical feminists and the pathetic news media smear the pro-life supporters, conservatives, republicans and any other Patriotic American every day as it is.
My initial response to this was that Obama would use it as an excuse to open the floodgates for abortion, like the Nazis used the death of Horst Wessel.
But then I was reminded of the moral of an Aesop fable: “The tyrant needs no excuse.” Which in retrospect, should have had the axiom, “But will use any excuse they can get.”
I feel terrible for the babies he sucked their little brains out.
Tiller?...like a mob boss. Some people just got it coming.
Now, the long and short of this awful turn of events is this: if abortion were not legal, the good doctor would probably be prescribing antibiotics to old ladys and golfing 3 days a week.
‘The idea that a late-term abortion doctor goes to church just boggles my mind.’
To be honest that was my first thought...
May Jesus forgive me for not being able to feel that this was a terrible crime.
Thats what I was thinking. It could have just been a turf war among the churches.
Based on this event it would be the christins who are the radical terrorists
Hmmm I don't see endless articles bemoaning the first of your indefensible acts on the MSM, why the endless articles bemoaning the second?
Come on people. There is no excuse for this kind of vigilante violence. And it does NOT help the pro-life cause in the slightest.
I find it interesting that such a high profile 'victim' has such a low profile killer. Do they not really know who it was or is the identity not suitable for MSM distribution yet. Sometimes it takes a while to cut and paste the right story.
This is an ELCA church. What a surprise. They find no fault in homosexuals, either.
I agree. The fringe people who do vigilante justice undercut the sane, logical, and wise people who are fighting for the unborn. Anyone who wants the right to life to be protected by law is not helped by this taking of life by illegal means.
On the other hand, the silver lining here is that it will probably cut the number of late-term abortions. I read recently that there are only a small handful of late-term abortionists in the entire country. I have to think this will have a chilling effect on anyone who wants to step into Tiller’s business.
..or a debt collector. Who knows.
“How the HELL do you KNOW who killed him?? It could be a jealous husband or a HITMAN from the left to GET THE ISSUE to THEIR SIDE! Geesh.....get a grip.”
What are you reading? I didn’t say one thing about who killed this guy or even one thing about this guy.
Get a grip indeed!
This is what I said in response to a ping:This is horrible. Not only was a life murdered in a house of worship, but the entire pro-life movement will be smeared by the radical feminists and news media.
Isnt it amazing when one right wing nut does something horrible, we are ALL horrible, but when a majority of some of our minorities create havoc day after day (most not reported), they are just victims?
And you twisted it to suit your out of control emotions.
Gots my ammo, guns and thoughts and the gubmnt ain’t taking none.
Abortion is gastly and wrong.
Then there is what this subhuman did, repeatedly.
Ann Coulter calls them 4th trimester abortions.
Were it possible to elicit Dr. Tiller’s opinion on this matter, I have no doubt whatsoever, he would object to the manner of his demise, but stand fast in supporting his slayer’s right to choose.
Both read the same Bible and pray to the same God, and each invokes His aid against the other. It may seem strange that any men should dare to ask a just God's assistance in wringing their bread from the sweat of other men's faces, but let us judge not, that we be not judged.
No way Ann Archy,
This guy was killed by a white Christian, gun nut, ex military guy who attended a tea party.
He is an extremist nearly identical to ME.
You are correct.
Gen U S Grant once said when a General came running up to him on General Lees movements-”I am whole heartily sick and tired about what Lee is going to do. I suppose he will do a double back flip and land behind us covering both our flanks. I care not what Lee is doing. I say we worry most about what we are going to do.”
Clintonfatigued, don’t ping me anymore. One can’t make a simple statement without the fruitcakes getting their panties in a twist. I have more important things to do than deal with FOOLS! I’m outta here.
Sounds like someone was working as the hand of GOD! We are all just a tool in HIS Hands & to be used as HE sees fit!
The Leftists must be outraged.
On the other hand Leftists have no problem sticking scissors into the back of a fetus’ head, shoving a suction catheter into the hole and “decompressing” the fetus’ brain before pulling him/her out by the legs with forcepts.
That, ladies and gentlemen,that is how “late term abortions” are performed.
If you don’t believe me, Google it.
Tiller performed many late term abortions before someone eventually performed one on him.
You are so, so right.
“...he would object to the manner of his demise, but stand fast in supporting his slayers right to choose.”
Excellent point. Tiller made a business out of choosing to kill people who didn’t get their “right to life.” That murderer had 67 years of life, and in an instant he met God. Now he knows what the real Chief Justice has to say about abortion.
Lutheran reference ping!
This may have been by design for political reasons.. Nothing is too foul for the new regime..
Play with a cobra....get bit........not gonna mourn!
I think Larry Hatteberg, newscaster KAKE, is about to cry. sick jerk Tiller was his hero.
Why would the Pro-Life movement be smeared if he was killed by a JEALOUS HUSBAND! YOU ASSumed he was killed by some right wing nut, and we don’t know yet who killed him.
Tiller didn’t use the brain sucking method. He stabbed babies in the heart with a drug to cause a heart attack before they were born.
They were already doing that yesterday. This won't change that.
I see little difference between those who would murder babies inside a womb, and those who would murder babies outside a womb....
I dont condone murder...but in this case...I can condone the choice of victim.
As someone posted above....”Karma” is a bitch...
Yep. I agree 1000%.
This is horrible for several reasons.
