This could hurt the Pro-life movement. scratch that, it WILL hurt the pro-life movement. But when government does not uphold the law, then the public must. I know it seems somewhat anarchic, but it is true.

Tiller Was Serving as Usher When He Was Shot

Someone caught him taking from the offering plate, got upset and shot him.

The suspect's car is described as a powder blue or light blue Taurus with a K-State vanity plate, license number 225 BAB. He is described as a white male in his 50's or 60's, 6'1," 220 lbs, wearing a white shirt and dark pants.

If there nis no conceal carry law, what else would you expect? I would imagine people were shocked and knowing Tiller, did not think anyone else was in danger.

All this madness took place in, what, an Episcopal church? But be sure the Catholic Church will wind up taking the blame.

March 10, 1993:
Dr. David Gunn of Pensacola, Florida was fatally shot during a protest. He had been the subject of wanted-style posters distributed by Operation Rescue in the summer of the year before. Michael F. Griffin was found guilty of Dr. Gunn's murder and was sentenced to life in prison.

June 29, 1994:
Dr. John Britton and James Barrett, a clinic escort, were both shot to death outside of another facility in Pensacola. Rev. Paul Jennings Hill was charged with the killings, received a death sentence, and was executed September 3, 2003.

December 30, 1994:
Two receptionists, Shannon Lowney and Lee Ann Nichols, were killed in two clinic attacks in Brookline, Massachusetts. John Salvi, who prior to his arrest was distributing pamphlets from Human Life International, was arrested and confessed to the killings. He committed suicide in prison and guards found his body under his bed with a plastic garbage bag tied around his head. Salvi had also confessed to a non-lethal attack in Norfolk, Virginia days before the Brookline killings.

January 29, 1998:
Robert Sanderson, an off-duty police officer who worked as a security guard at an abortion clinic in Birmingham, Alabama, was killed when his workplace was bombed. Eric Robert Rudolph, who was also responsible for the 1996 Centennial Olympic Park bombing, was charged with the crime and received two life sentences as a result.

October 23, 1998:
Dr. Barnett Slepian was shot to death at his home in Amherst, New York. His was the last in a series of similar shootings against providers in Canada and northern New York state which were all likely committed by James Kopp. Kopp was convicted of Dr. Slepian's murder after finally being apprehended in France in 2001.

Kansas allows conceal carry, however we also have the No-GUN sign provision. I could go check the church and see if they have one of those signs.

The media will use this to attack pro lifers, no matter what the motive for the shooting was. The media will be joined by 0’s administration, and by a Congress that is just aching to pass more anti gun legislation. All pro lifers will be painted as terrorists waiting to strike.

How ironic. Tiller shot and killed at his church.

Sounds like he was quite the hypocritical “Christian,” and whoever killed him was definitely not “prolife.”

Fox News had reported that the suspect was driving a car registered in Merriam, Kansas (a suburb of Kansas City).

Sounds like the guy was driving leisurely back home (probably at 70 or 80 mph)...

I guess so. I’m just thinking that someone would try to grab the shooter so he couldn’t run away. But that’s easy for me to say, sitting here in my living room.

OK, ELCA, not Episcopal. Thank you.

Hmm. Kansas, eh? For some reason, Kansas is a spiritual ground zero of sorts for this issue. Sebelius, the Easter recess during her confirmation "hearing," and now this.

Mrs. Sebelius, you might want to consider the sacraments anew.

The “best case scenario” would be a completely random act of violence by someone who didn’t have a clue who is was killing, but I sincerely doubt that is the case.

WHY didn’t the killer WAIT til Tiller was alone...either going home from Church or sometime else. Seems STRANGE to kill him IN CHURCH with all the witnesses!

Admittedly there was zero justice in Kansas. Tiller owns the entire justice and political system here. Nearly every judge is in his back pocket.

We need to focus on what motivated him to kill Tiller? Why would a church going Dr. be murdered? Was there something about Tiller’s past that angered the killer? While the MSM will be demonizing the pro-choicers, there must a thorough and intensive background into Tiller’s past. The more that people know about Tiller the more likelihood it is that a motivation will be found.
A lot of posters are saying this will set pro-choice back years. Maybe. A lot will depend upon talk-radio. They need to meticuolously document Tiller’s choice of profession. They need to bring in women who might be stigamatized by their decision to see Tiller.
Tiller was killed. A suspect was apprehended. Now, it NOT the time go on defense, rather it’s the time to investigate Tiller’s past, and look for a reason someone would murder him.
I understand there might be 6,000+ reasons, but the vast majority don’t. Now’s the time to unveil who, Dr. Tiller was, and how he made his living.

I disapprove of what the killer did, but am I surprised that someone killed Tiller? Not at all and I have occasionally wondered why this did not happen sooner.

I could see why a misguided pro-life person killed him, especially if they had a strong-held position that abortion - and especially partial birth abortion - is murder.

I know folks who drive normally that speed on Interstates.

The Kansas Turnpike in the 1960's used to have speed like of 80mph, I think. But that was too long ago to remember.

I was born in Great Bend, KS, so I have visited the state a few times to see relatives...

Tiller probably has hired body guards and may have not been very vulnerable anywhere but church.

According to Fox News, suspect was driving car registered in Merriam, Kansas [suburb of Kansas City, Kansas]. According to KAKE-TV, suspect matching description was stopped in Gardner, Kansas (which is close to Kansas City, and in line with the suspect returning to Merriam). Gardner is on I-35, not Turnpike I-335...

Some interesting Stats on Abortion:

1.3 million abortions are performed each year. (Source: Finer LB and Henshaw SK, Estimates of U.S. Abortion Incidence in 2001 and 2002, Alan Guttmacher Institute, 2005)

That’s 1.3 million dead American babies in one year.

How many since Roe v Wade?

49,551,703 Total Abortions since 1973
