Hours after the Sunday morning shooting death of late-term abortion doctor George Tiller in Wichita, Kan., a Boulder physician who says he could be the only doctor in the world still performing the procedure said Tillers assassination was the absolutely inevitable consequence of decades of anti-abortion fanaticism.
Im profoundly sad and Im furious and I think the American people need to understand that we have a fascist movement in this country, Dr. Warren Hern told The Colorado Independent on Sunday. We dont have to invade Iraq to find terrorists. Theyre right here killing abortion doctors.
Every doctor that does abortions has been under an assassination threat for decades, Hern said. The anti-abortion movement message is, Do what we tell you to do or we will kill you, and they do. This is a fascist movement.
Hern laid blame for Tillers death at the feet of the anti-abortion movements encouragement of violence against abortion providers and the Republican Partys exploitation of the extremist rhetoric.
Dr. Tiller is dead by an anti-abortion assassin, and this is the absolutely inevitable consequence of 35 years of anti-abortion fanatic rhetoric and intimidation and assassination violence and exploitation by the Republican Party of this movement, Hern told the Independent.
Hern, who described Tiller as a good friend of mine, said he doesnt know of any other doctors in the world doing late abortions like I am. The Boulder Abortion Clinic, run by Hern since he founded the practice in 1975, has as its motto Specializing in Late Abortions for Fetal Disorders.
Hern declined to say whether he planned any changes to his security precautions after the killing of Tiller, who was shot to death while ushering at his Lutheran church.
Noting that Tiller is the fifth American doctor to be assassinated, Hern told the Los Angeles Times hes well aware of the dangers. I get messages from these people saying, Dont bother wearing a bulletproof vest, were going for a head shot.
A statement on the Boulder Abortion Clinics Web site addresses Herns concerns about safety for the clinics patients:
By its name and continued existence, Boulder Abortion Clinic makes a statement that women are free to make their own choices about their own lives, bodies, and family needs. I have been personally involved from the beginning of my medical career in advocacy of reproductive freedom, and I continue in this commitment. We have survived anti-abortion harassment and violence and shown our determination to provide these services in spite of everything. As a result, our patients are protected by the highest standards of safety and security when they come to my office.
I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but that the wicked turn from his way and live;
Another FReeper posted this on a thread about Tiller. It sums up my feelings completely.
“a fascist movement.” ???
Killing children is.
Theyre right here killing abortion doctors. ——— I only see one set of bloody hands here.
Yes, we have a fascist movement in this country headed up by Obambi and his thugs
Homeland Security will be watching FR like a hawk now....I fear.
Ah, the late-term abortion-provider as VICTIM. A new twist.
I guess this means DR. Herns can now double his fee... I wonder how many abortion doctors would provide the service for free. It would be nice to know how many of them really believe in the almighty buck or a womans right to terminate her child.
And the movement is called....Obomamania.
“who says he could be the only doctor in the world still performing the procedure said Tillers assassination was the absolutely inevitable consequence of decades of anti-abortion fanaticism.”
Geez, doc, if you are the last of the “performers” maybe it’s YOU who is AFU?
It is not the result of anti abortion fanatacism. It is the result of a nut case deciding he could play God.
Theyre right here killing abortion doctors. Oooooops, I meant 2 sets of hands.
Murder is wrong.
Of an adult doctor; and also of thousands of innocent babies.
I couldn't agree more. Now that movement has put their man in the White House.
Like I said on another thread. When you deal in death, don’t be surprised when it comes to visit.
This guy is dead? I heard nothing on the local news since I was out in the woods camping this weekend.
I cannot believe it. I just wrote a poem about this bloody man called: “Tiller’s Farm.”
"It's not that out liberal friends are ignorant, it's that they know so much that isn't so."

they already have been...folks have been visited.
do not say anything even in jest about fearless leader that could be misconstrued as a threat.
Tiller IS a murder victim.
No, no, nooooooo! not THAT fascist movement... the NON-PC (imaginary) fascist movement. THAT’S the one that has to be shot down and it’s pre-criminal members preemptively detained for the pre-crimes DHS pre-conceives they might commit later.
I didn’t realize a motive for the murder has been established.
Of course, it is obvious that the lack of such a piece of critical evidence is no barrier to the abortionists crying out for more protection in their quest to slaughter unborn humans.
I do not condone this murder (not and assasination) but also do not condone using a murder for political gain.
But, since when do abortionists have scruples?
[Dr. Warren Hern] “says he could be the only doctor in the world still performing the procedure...”
Hey Doc, doesn’t that tell you something?
Killing Tiller was murder. It’s a crime.
That it is and we’re all going to pay for it.
Watch, now abortionists will be a new protected class and subject to special 'hate crimes' legislation.
What goes around, comes around.
Is it any good? Would you care to freepmail it to me? I am a pretty good editor, my wife says.
The hysteria is almost comical. how many abortion doctors have been killed vs the number of woman who have died from “safe abortions”.
Killing Tiller was murder. Its a crime.
Its reaching the point where its not safe to make a living crushing the skulls of healthy infants.
clearly they all got the email with the talking points attachment.
Quoted because it is so very true.
this is looking more and more like a scripted event.
“Hern, who described Tiller as a good friend of mine, said he doesnt know of any other doctors in the world doing late abortions like I am”
He doesn’t get out much- maybe needs to travel to China and North Korea so he won’t feel so ronery about aborting near full term infants..
Considering how many people are pro-life and how many abortion doctors have been shot (what, 2, in the last 30 years?), I think this doctor might be a DRAMA QUEEN.
Tiller was under investigation for breaking various abortions laws including those performed on preteens. Gov Sebelius helped to get the charges dropped. Tiller had donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to Sebelius’s campaign and causes.
...an anti-abortion assassin...
I don't think I can untie this semantical knot myself. In fact, it may well be the world's first verbal Mobius strip.
Well, the “good doc” didn’t waste any time trying to attract attention to his abortion clinic, just a relatively short drive from the area now lacking certain services.
They can watch me all they want. By the way, O’Reilly, since I know you troll these boards...Piss off.
"They"? The reports I've read identify only one man: Scott Roeder.
None of us are without sin, but I can say I don’t have the blood of countless innnocents on my hands. I don’t condone this guys actions, but I am not mourning this monster’s death either.
Any Israelite or any alien living in Israel who gives (a) any of his children to Molech must be put to death.

Hey, Doc Hern... this is not a fascist movement...it’s a murder, like thousands of others that happen every day, any place.
THE fascist movement started in Nov. 08.
A serial murderer was murdered. It’s a nasty nasty world out there.
