NOW Identifies Murder of Dr. George Tiller As Domestic Terrorism, Calls for Action from Justice Department and Homeland Security Statement of NOW President Kim Gandy

June 1, 2009

Women across the country have lost a champion today. The cold-blooded murder of Dr. George Tiller this morning in church is a stark reminder that women's bodies are still a battleground, and health care professionals are on the frontlines.

This kind man and skilled doctor braved blockades, harassment, assault, and countless threats, including an attempted murder in 1993 when he was shot in both arms. He knew his life was in constant jeopardy, and that he would likely die at the hands of an anti-abortion terrorist -- yet he continued to protect his patients and provide safe and legal abortions to women in often-desperate circumstances. Those who are behind this murder may believe that the killing of George Tiller will mean that these women will have nowhere else to turn, but they are wrong. On the contrary, I believe their depraved acts will inspire another doctor to take up the torch, and another, and another.

Dr. Tiller's slaying is the most recent in a string of murders in the service of the anti-abortion cause, and hundreds of people have been injured or threatened because they provide legal abortion services. Bringing the killers to justice is not enough - the Justice Department and the Department of Homeland Security must root out and prosecute as domestic terrorists and violent racketeers the criminal enterprise that has organized and funded criminal acts for decades. We call on the new attorney general Eric Holder and head of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano to treat these murders in the same way they would treat politically-motivated domestic terrorism of any other kind and put the full resources of their two departments behind that effort.

Tomorrow will be a Day of Mourning for Dr. Tiller as well as a National Day of Commitment for all who believe abortion must remain both safe and legal -- who believe women have the right and indeed the moral obligation to make their own childbearing decisions. We urge individuals to wear white armbands all day tomorrow, Monday, June 1, in memory of Dr. Tiller and as a visible expression of determination to redouble our commitment to protecting the right to safe and legal birth control and abortion.

Domestic Terrorism

Are those in support of the culture of life really looking at being shipped of to some detention camp somewhere for "torture" in some mad leftist retribution for "the policies of Bush."

Man, that's wild enough to be a chapter in someone's best-seller.

It's time we get our heads around the fact that the lunatics are running the asylum, and they're not very nice people, either. I won't call them "baby killers" -- but they are in willfull denial of reality, which makes them particularly dangerous.

Yep, they don’t have a suspect yet.

I’m very sad somebody was killed, of course. We don’t know a motive without the suspect and piecing it together. Wouldn’t it be a kick in the butt to N.O.W. if it turned out that this murder had nothing to do with his abortion activities? They are just assuming that it is in retaliation for abortion.

We’ll see when they arrest somebody, then we’ll know. I think the release from N.O.W. is very premature.

It will definitely be a black mark if he's a CCW holder. The big thing advancing CCW was the record of how few CCW holders ever ise their guns to commit a crime.

NOW is a champion of women alright. Butched-out, bull-dyked, shrill lesbian liberals who despise men, women who believe it’s okay to stay at home with children and the United States of America. When it’s Sarah Palin or Carrie Prejean being attacked this joke of an organization stands idly by and pretends they don’t exist.

N.O.W. is very selective in their outrage. N.O.W. was leading the charge against Clarence Thomas because of the accusations of sex harrassment against him. Yet that same organization had nothing to say about sex harrassment charges against Bill Clinton. The silence was deafening, and seeing such lack of intellectual honesty, it’s hard to take N.O.W. seriously with their pronouncements.

These women are truly sick! They worry about the "cold-blooded murder" of Tiller but not the cold-blooded murder of millions of children.

For the sake of liberal lurkers...

Abortion is not about saving women’s lives!

Studies Find Abortions Have Long-Term Effects

An Unexpected Correlation: The Legacy of Abortion

Study: Previous Abortions Linked With Pre-Term Birth and Cerebral Palsy

American Psychological Association Ignores Abortion-Depression Link

Study finds depression suffered by 80% of women who abort

Post-Abortion Counselor Confirms Abortions Cause Women Mental Health Issues

Spanish Medical Expert: Damage to Women Caused by Abortion is Scientifically Proven

48,589,993

Total Abortions since 1973

------------------------------------------------------------

Why the drop after 1960? (in deaths of women from illegal abortions)

The reasons were new and better antibiotics, better surgery and the establishment of intensive care units in hospitals. This was in the face of a rising population. Between 1967 and 1970 sixteen states legalized abortion. In most it was limited, only for rape, incest and severe fetal handicap (life of mother was legal in all states). There were two big exceptions — California in 1967, and New York in 1970 allowed abortion on demand. Now look at the chart carefully.

----------------------------------------------------------------------

Abortion Statistics - Decision to Have an Abortion (U.S.)

· 25.5% of women deciding to have an abortion want to postpone childbearing

· 21.3% of women cannot afford a baby

· 14.1% of women have a relationship issue or their partner does not want a child

· 12.2% of women are too young (their parents or others object to the pregnancy)

· 10.8% of women feel a child will disrupt their education or career

· 7.9% of women want no (more) children

· 3.3% of women have an abortion due to a risk to fetal health

2.8% of women have an abortion due to a risk to maternal health

----------------------------------------------------------------------

So how many women’s lives have been saved by abortion?

Only about 3% of abortions since 1972 were reported to be “due to a risk to maternal health.” A reasonable person would recognize that not all of those cases represent a lethal risk. But let’s say they did. That means that nearly 45 million fetuses were butchered to save the lives of about 1.3 million women. Or put another way; 35 babies are killed to save each woman.

Abortion was legal in all 50 states prior to Roe v. Wade in cases of danger to the life of the woman.

It seems like NOW would be more likely to be identified as a "domestic terrorist" organization than whomever did the murder. I mean, the murder of Tiller - not Tiller himself, although Tiller fits the description nicely, as well.

NOW has millions of murders to their credit, and they certainly have terrorized the helpless populations of uncounted numbers of wombs, so I can see why they would want to get a terrorist organization persecution bandwagon rolling in the other direction.

Already they are calling for pogroms when the killer and his motives have yet to be made public. I would say they are going off half-cocked, but that would no doubt be shrieked at as a sexist statement.

But, they may as well get the bandwagon rolling early. There are going to be plenty of politicians jumping on it before tomorrow morning waving all their pet causes from more gun control to more hate-crimes legislation!

I'm sad about it too - although I'm much less sad about it than I would be if virtually *any* other human being was killed.

Partial birth abortions are sick and twisted. Anyone who has one and condones them is an animal.

I would consider partial term abortions a terrorist act against the fetus.

But many women have gone off the deep end on the “Its my body and my right!”

Yea, why not argue that you get to kill your child until he or she turns 18?
