Thus by use of violence, the shooter set out to achieve that which he could not achieve through the democratic political process.

She is right that this killer should go to prison for life with no possibility of parole (or get the death penalty), but she's wrong on this one point. The murderer set out to achieve that which he could not achieve over the undemocratic and unconstitutional decree of the Supreme Court ruling in Roe v. Wade and related cases. This murder is still wrong, unforgivably evil, and an inappropriate tactic for achieving political objectives, but democracy has nothing to do with our current abortion situation.

All the political and democratic remedies were tried.
The governor and the AG just simply ignored these laws and helped Tiller avoid prosecution for their violation.
