Skip to comments.Obama sends in U.S. Marshals to protect abortion clinics across America after (Tiller) is killed

U.S. Marshals were sent to guard abortion clinics across America today amid fears the murder of a controversial doctor could spark a new wave of violence.
The move by U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder came hours after George Tiller, one of only three American doctors carrying out late-term abortions, was gunned down in the church where he was working as an usher and his wife was in the choir.

He wasn’t killed at an Abortion Clinic.
Can’t let a crisis go to waist....wish they would send Marshals to the border!
Guess he’ll be sending Marshals to all Lutheran churches, too. Sheesh; what a tool!
Well, good heavens, you don't expect them to protect churches do you?
Are these Government agencies (oh the irony... government run death mills)?
They can hire private security it they feel the need.
Don’t waste my money.
What about protecting military recruitment centers?

Statement of the Attorney General on Murder of Doctor George Tiller
Sunday, May 31, 2009
The murder of Doctor George Tiller is an abhorrent act of violence, and his family is in our thoughts and prayers at this tragic moment. Federal law enforcement is coordinating with local law enforcement officials in Kansas on the investigation of this crime, and I have directed the United States Marshals Service to offer protection to other appropriate people and facilities around the nation. The Department of Justice will work to bring the perpetrator of this crime to justice. As a precautionary measure, we will also take appropriate steps to help prevent any related acts of violence from occurring.

Why is late term abortion so d*mn sacred to liberals.
This is what this whole incident was about.
Oh, good grief.
do you honestly think theOne will protect people praying in church?
Really? That's really stupid and over-reacting. But then, that seems to be typical of this administration on the domestic front.
Exactly. But that’s status quo for a phony bologna plastic banana president.
What a stupid, expensive, resource wasting, overreaction.
Shouldn’t they be going to churches?
Shouts of joy rise from the Left!
But of course, you know Obama won’t want to protect “church going” citizens, now.....
Nothing but grandstanding to generate public concern over a non-existant CRISIS!!O!M!G!
These stinking tools are rubbling their hands and laughing with secret glee over their ghoul buddy’s death. Now they can say, “See? Janet BullDyke-atano was right about all those right wingers. We better do something quick!”
The number of abortion providers has gone down dramatically over the last several years.
Tiller’s murder will only push this trend.
Polling over the last year shows an anti-abortion trend.
I fail to see how Tiller’s murder will reverse this, regardless of how the MSM paints the pro-life movement and conservatives.
This is why Obama wants to mandate that doctors provide abortions, and that pharamacists must provide abortion drugs, and cannot opt-out. The conscious clause is the next round in the abortion fight.
So far this this UK site is the only report of this.I truly hope it turns out to be false because then Obama would have to send marshalls to all the military recruiting stations.
The murder of ‘unborn babys by’ Doctor George Tiller is an abhorrent act of violence”
Post of the day!
The list, ping
However, U.S. Marshals have a weakness: They rarely arrest people!
Therefore, Marshals are prone to FALSE ARREST!
The Marshals transport fugitives, and they track down escaped convicts. They guard those in witness protection. These folks do not need to be “Marandized” under the law.
So, talk a bunch, ask questions, ask about legal authority.
Don't be a jerk, but the Marshals will probably make mistakes, if you give them some time.
N. Korea sets off a nuclear bomb and several missiles: Obama feels we need to talk.
Abortion doctor killed: Obama is outraged and sends in the Marshals. Sheesh.
Yes, killing abortionists is wrong. But so is abortion itself.
Actually, I would expect someone such as Obama to protect apostate churches like Tiller’s.
Every potential mother entering or leaving an abortion clinic, and every marshall protecting a clinic, should be offered a baby rattle gift.
With all the advance warning and so forth, why didn’t Obama prevent this murder?
He was killed in a church for Pete’s sake....
It’s the “had-aborts”.
ANY restrictions on abortion puts a negative connotation on the “choice” of abortion, and makes them realize that what they did was kill their unborn baby.
Same reason that they HATE it when someone choose NOT to abort, like Palin. If someone chooses differently, it makes them realize their choice was morally inferior.
That’s right, and those people have lives in the public. It could come at any time.
Kinda... not really a House of God, though, being an apostate church and all.
>>Why is late term abortion so d*mn sacred to liberals.
I think that its because they know that late term abortions are a line in the sand that conservatives will not waver on.
So they convince the women that the abortions are a fundamental human right that evil male conservatives want to take away in an attempt to enslave women. And the women buy it. (Not all, obviously, but far too many.)
The problem is that it works. Of course, if the details of the procedure were made public in graphic terms, it would horrify most people, including the liberal women that want it so bad.
That’s why you can see just about anything on NatGeo, Discovery, DHC, etc, but you NEVER see a documentary about how an abortion is done, especially a late-term abortion. They should do an episode of “Modern Marvels” on it if its so great.
Conservatives who run for office in 2010 and 2012 better be taking COPIOUS notes on all of these things!
Still waiting to hear breaking news that our military recruiters are *at least* as important as viable baby butchers in terms of protection...
Dear God, what a bizarro world this has become! :*(
Well yes...that is true.
We need a new federal program to Protect The Ushers Of America!
This could be the most important, and far-reaching, sentence in that statement!
“As a precautionary measure, we will also take appropriate steps to help prevent any related acts of violence from occurring.
Unbelievable stupidity by Mr. Holder yet again. Amazing, a lone gunman kills and abortion clinic and the Administration acts as though its an organized terrorist war going on nationwide.
An organized worldwide terrorst organization attacks US and its allies and interests and the administration acts as though its simply a law enforcement issue.
These people and those around them are absolute idiots. I suppose if someone throws their gum on the sidewalk they will send out the EPA to every paved sidewalk corner in america to keep them safe. (rolling eyes)
I’m waiting to hear he will send someone to THIS side of the border to protect us from armed Mexican Drug Cartels killing us EVERY day! Phoenix, AZ...over 300 kidnappings...Obama’s resonse....ZIP!
No, certain groups are on their own.
Let no crisis go to waste and if there is no crisis create one, seems to be the method of operation here.
How many billions will Obama now spend to bailout the Abortion Clinics?
This is a considerable overreaction, it seems to me.
