No, I believe Ms. Saunders is dead wrong in some respects. To wit:

I understand that anti-abortion activists considered Tiller's practice of late-term abortions to be heinous in and of itself - and they had a moral argument. But that moral argument is undermined by the shooting of a doctor - in a church, of all places.

How does the immediately condemned act of one individual reflect poorly - or at all - on the moral argument prsented by those that condemned the murder? The Unabomber was not deemed to have undermined the argument of environmentalists - he was labeled as a loony.

Guilt by association is dead wrong.

The left and right are measured by different standards.

Right or wrong, fair or not, that’s the way it is.
