Im in shock having just heard of the terrible cowardly murder of Dr. Tiller, a man who put his life on the line for women in their most desperate hour. As a clergy member of St. Louis-based Faith Aloud, I share this entry from their blog:
Abortion Provider Dr. George Tiller was murdered by a gunman who shot him point-blank while he was ushering in services at Reformation Lutheran Church in Wichita, Kansas. His wife, Jeanne, watched in horror from the choir loft.
The clergy and members of Faith Aloud mourn the loss of this courageous, dedicated, and religious man. He and his clinic had been the victim of violence many times before, yet he continued to provide women with desperately needed care. As one of the few providers in the country for third trimester abortions, Dr. Tiller served many women who had planned pregnancies that had gone wrong. He was deeply religious and his services to women and families at his clinic included the guidance of a chaplain.
Dr. Tiller taught me so much about the spiritual concerns of his patients, said the Reverend Rebecca Turner, Executive Director of Faith Aloud. He was a kind, compassionate man who respected women and listened to them. America cannot tolerate this kind of domestic terrorism. We must put an end to the hostile rhetoric that fuels this kind of violence. We must hold people accountable who bully women on the sidewalks of abortion clinics. There is nothing pro-life about murder and nothing Christian about the hatred that fuels it. My heart goes out to abortion providers all over our country who share in this tragedy.
Faith Aloud is an interfaith organization that supports women in all their decisions concerning problem pregnancies.

Yeah, what a guy. I bet he even prayed with the mothers of his victims.
Only the left could make this monster out to be a man of compassion.
Sorry folks, I feel no empathy for the degenerate Tiller. I hope he lived long enough to suffer the indignity and human rights violation of losing his life at the hands of another.
To feel empathy for Tiller is to feel empathy for Josef Mengele. Still it seems Tiller got off easy. It would have been better that he was disfigured and crippled and had to live with it as do so many babies who who survive abortion and have to live with a limb missing due to the Abortionists steely scalpel.
Funny he was at church. Christianity and abortion are wholly incompatible. One cannot be Christian and pro-abortion. Impossible.
God have mercy on the wretched ghoul.
PS: As for women’s “most desperate hour”, I would suggest that the hour of desperation is the time when a woman loses control over her reproductive organs and willfully lets a man use her as a puss dump. The truth is so simple yet so impossible for the leftist mind to entertain the notion of personal responsibility. Liberalism is a merciless mental disorder.
Come on Binstence,
You are from N.Y. you can’t think like a conservative Christian.
I do not condone violence done against this man.
It is my opinion that third trimester abortion is infanticide. Murder.
And what is the deal with this “Faith Aloud Clergy” thing? This is not a religious organization, it is ideological.
This just in Obama will speak at his funeral
How about they wait until we know for sure that it was a “pro-life” loon before the smearing of the pro-life movement begins? I know the Lamestream Media is chomping at the bit to frame all pro-lifers as crazies but I’m sure if this was done for a reason OTHER THAN a pro-life cause, the blogs will let us know.
Many here keep bringing up a “jealous husband”. Was this baby-killer a playboy or something?
I have no feelings of sympathy, empathy or whatever for this guy’s passing. I also have the feeling that this Faith Aloud bunch would be far less aghast at violence against those who favor the protection of innocent life.
Tiller and his family lived high and well off his “business” and now he’s dead. So is John Gotti. So what?
What a creepy statement.
I’m going to puke.
I do not mourn this man dead. But, murder is not a fate for anyone, and the murderer is to be condemned. The tragedy is that the laws of this land allowed Dr. Tiller to practice his butchery beyond the reach of the law and within the warped moral praise of those like the Reverend Turner.
Good riddance to bad rubbish.
Tell the lefties: “The chickens have come home to roost!”
And I see they already got their “domestic terrorism” talking points. Here come the crackdowns, they were just waiting for something to hang it on, however flimsy.
Freep-mail me to get on or off my pro-life and Catholic List:
Please ping me to note-worthy Pro-Life or Catholic threads, or other threads of interest.
Obama Says A Baby Is A Punishment
>> America cannot tolerate this kind of domestic terrorism.
However, OTHER kinds of domestic terrorism, like eco-terrorists, ACORN tire-slashers in Mineapolis, and so forth — THOSE are OK!
>> We must put an end to the hostile rhetoric
TAKE AWAY THEIR FREE SPEECH!
>> ...that fuels this kind of violence.
TAKE AWAY THEIR GUNS ‘N AMMO!
>> We must hold people accountable who bully women on the sidewalks of abortion clinics.
However, bullies who intimidate peaceful anti-abortion protestors on the (public) sidewalks of abortion clinics — now THOSE are OK.
just reading between the lines of what Rebecca says.
Yeah, maybe they can get the “Rev” Wright to speak at the service. He can praise Tiller and his ilk for all the black children who will never draw breath in this world.
So... the question now for the murder suspect: Was he on any anti-depressants? It may be another case of someone off from their meds. Just a thought.

No heresy, no wickedness, not even the devil himself, can succeed without first counterfeiting good virtue.
