“The idea that a late-term abortion doctor goes to church just boggles my mind.”
That’s nothing ~ wait till the left tries to cannonize this man as a martyr and a saint by sundown tomorrow evening.
They are going to have a field day with this.
Anyone check this guy’s bank account for payments from planned parenthood? :/
I didn’t know only 3 US doctors did 3rd trimester abortions. That says a lot.
So the ban didn’t take? They just do something besides “dilation and extraction”?
There are at least three medical procedures associated with late-term (third trimester) abortions:
1) Dilation and evacuation (D&E)
2) Early induction of labor (Induction abortion)
3) Intact dilation and extraction (IDX or D&X), known as "partial-birth abortion"
You can look up the details online of how these three different procedures work, I won't post it because it's pretty disturbing stuff. They also used to do third trimester abortions two other ways, by 4) Saline Abortion and 5) Hysterotomy (basically the abortion version of a C-section except in this case the baby is dead when the stomach is cut open). Those techniques have now become "outdated" however.
I'm guessing Tiller used the "Dilation and evacuation" and early induction of labor methods for pregnancies past 24 weeks. If he was performing partial-birth abortions he would be violating federal law (though I wouldn't put it past him to do something illegal like that)
So basically, third trimester abortion wasn't banned in the U.S., only partial-birth abortion. However, most abortion clinics will refuse to do them. It should be noted that in most "modern western nations" that allow abortion, like England, France, Germany, Australia, Canada, etc., still never-the-less prohibit third trimester except to save the mother's life. The U.S. is one of the exceptions that allows third trimester abortions.
I wonder how politicians like Mark Kirk can sleep at night when they vote in favor of this stuff. They have to have read the details of the procedures. Pretty sick stuff.
That actually happened with the BTK Killer, Dennis Rader. And he held a position within his church.
If this doctor was so evil explain why do Christians, who I count myself among, have abortions at the same rate as non-Christians, Catholics at a rate 28% higher than the general population? While I don’t condone what this man did for a living he wasn’t forcing anyone to kill their baby. Christians need to stop throwing the first stone, yelling and screaming from the sidelines and instead work to create a country where people, especially of limited economic means, feel it’s a safe and good place to bring up children, not kill them.
Welcome to Free Republic - I think. I don't think you have any proof of your claims.
Ever hear of Molech?
Sweet, signed up June 1st, and this is your first post.
Your conclusions are based on way too many faulty assumptions to address.
Are you counting as “Christians” those who reject Biblical Truth and Authority? “Christians” who believe IN Jesus, but don’t believe what He said?
Second, Tiller was facilitating forced, or at least coerced abortions. Why do you think most of those abortions WERE late term? Procrastination? Or a family or boyfriend discovering the pregnancy and demanding she “take care of it”.
We DID have a country where it was preferable to bring up a child in a family with a father. Until, of course, the government stepped in to “help”. Thanks, libs, thanks alot...
You need to take your random number generator back for a refund. It appears to be broken.
