Dr. George Tiller: a physician who helped people in "desperate circumstances"(Freepers are "swill")
Blue Oregon.com ^ | June 1, 2009 | Carla Axtman

Posted on 06/02/2009 1:57:24 PM PDT by pissant

The murder over the weekend of Dr. George Tiller, one of a handful of physicians who performed late-term abortion, is an absolute tragedy. As Kristen wrote yesterday, many are in mourning and angry over this disgusting and hate-filled act.

This was an act of political aggression against a doctor who helped people who were in absolutely desperate circumstances:

Anti-choice activists often cast late-term abortions as the murder of a viable baby at the whim of a woman who doesn't wish to be inconvenienced, carried out by a doctor who looks at her and sees only cartoon dollar signs. They're egged on by relatively mainstream figures like Bill O'Reilly, who declared that Dr. Tiller "destroys fetuses for just about any reason right up until the birth date for $5,000." Such misinformation and outright lies about procedures that are in fact rare and only performed when medically necessary are what led anti-choice activists to call Tiller "America's Doctor of Death," and accuse him of running a "murder mill." The reality of what Dr. Tiller did, however -- helping women in absolutely desperate circumstances, when almost no one else would -- is what led one woman who had to terminate a wanted pregnancy because of a terrible late-term diagnosis to call the doctor and staff at his Women's Health Center "our heaven when we were living in hell."

This was a man who was treating patients in dire need of help. His cold-blooded murder for what looks like political and religious reasons is revolting. The justifications for his murder by the repugnant Randall Terry and the swill that is Free Republic are a stark reminder that the Americanized version of the Taliban are alive and well.

I'm sure the dingbat Carla's next piece will be about the murdered Army recruiter and jihadi that killed him. And the jihadi enablers (also known as Obama voters). Right Carla?

The reality of what Dr. Tiller did, however was that he shredded live babies with a dull knife.

I wonder how many of Carla's babies similarly got shredded with a dull knife.

Bill O’Reilly, who declared that Dr. Tiller “destroys fetuses for just about any reason right up until the birth date for $5,000.” Such misinformation and outright lies...
******************************************************
The only misinformation is the price quoted ... he often charged up to $10,000 if it was a really late abortion.

Killing a child because you couldn't keep your legs shut is not a "desperate circumstance". Well, I shouldn't say that. Maybe to the narcissist it is but to normal people...not so much.

I suppose Carla is referring to the babies who's lives were terminated. Oh, wait...

Yeah, a woman who wants to be able to do her 'thing' without the result of motherhood is in a desperate circumstance. Disgusting.

One commenter there said, “Tiller did not kill babies, he preformed a service for desperate women or something to that effect.

#1. YES, YES he did. It has been explained just how he did it. Sucking brains out of a live human is killing.
#2. If one would be so desperate if they got pregnant, USE A CONDOM
or some form of birth control.

I know a couple on my block that waited 3 years to adopt a baby. I know a famous judge here in Chicago who adopted a crack baby and the kid is thriving. IU believe that a family could have been found for a baby who would become a late term victim of political agendas.

I am still amazed he had such a standing in a church to have a position, even an usher. I think a church should welcome anyone and most do, but to be given a position while doing something like abortion for a living is incredible to me.

What desperate circumstance or dire need could they have

that wouldn’t have been equally addressed by adopting out their child after birth?

I heard it was between 5 and 21K...at 5K for 60,000 abortions that is about 300 mil.. not sure if I am right on the numbers...

I have talked to my doctor friends, who say at that point in the trimester it is almost never needed to do an abortion to save the mother’s life.

From the article:

disgusting and hate-filled act

This was an act of political aggression

Conservatives roundly denounce murder for any reason.

But oddly, there are no cries from the left that we "must seek to understand what drives a person to this level of violence" or pleas to "show respect" to anti-abortion advocates so we might avoid this in the future, or my personal favorite leftist response to terrorism: "Maybe we deserved it."

“I know a couple on my block that waited 3 years to adopt a baby.”
___________

There is a very short waiting list for deparately deformed babies and babies with catastrophic illnesses. It takes a VERY special parent but I’m certain that they could have beconme parents in far less time then 3 years. Older children as well, healthy and not, are also readily available right away. And foster care is deparate- lots of opportunities.

I could understand “rare’ circumstances if the mother was going to die right then and there..but 60,000 “rare’ circumstances.???? hardly.

Also, most doctors know that there are very very very few..if any—circumstances that warrant this proceedure.

BTW..I went to the comments on that article and it was surprising to see lots of Pro-life comments from people who said they were basically liberal, but pro life. THAT was heartening!

No, this was a man who was helping himself to peoples money by killing the living results of people with no birth control and no self control. And he was killed by another nut with the same "high moral standard" that Tiller exhibited.

Don't tip-toe around we swill here at FR! Tell it like it is and use the word ABORTION Carla, you chicken-shit!

By the way, we should all ask her, “WHO “AXT” YOU FOR YOUR OPINION”?

Would you MSM wackos mind telling us the diagnosis in this probably imaginary case?

“Oh no! Our baby has SIX TOES on each foot! He’ll nevah make the track team at Haahvaahd! He is RUINED!/sarcam off

Then again, a pregnant Italian woman doctor discovered she had ovarian cancer and chose to refuse chemo which would have killed the baby. That takes courage!

LOL!

Carla, you poor witless twit.

It constantly amazes me how bloodthirsty leftists in the pro-abortion crowd strain to justify the act of premeditated murder against an unborn child as merely a 'surgical procedure involving an unviable tissue mass', yet weep uncontrollably when some poor arctic seal gets its brains bashed in or a logging company lops down a tree with some poor spotted owl in it.

Your whole belief system is as rotten as raw hamburger left in the summer sun. Rather than hate you, instead I feel sorry for you. It is quite apparent that while some parts of your brain have developed normally over time, other parts have been starved of oxygen just a little too long.

Tiller was a cold-blooded killer of innocent human beings to small to protect themselves.

Deal with it.

Some things are beyond the pale of civilized discussion. Partial birth abortions are way, way, way, beyond anything I have ever heard even remotely discussed as moral.

I can’t bring myself to describe my revulsion for those who defend it.

To be greeted by this man on Sundays at the church (he was an usher volunteering) while he still ran his practice is an instance of the church validating his immoral (but legal) activities.

This was an act of political aggression against a doctor who helped people who were in absolutely desperate circumstances:

Apparently that's nothing but a lie. I think baby killers are swill.

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?

Less than 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.

and the swill that is Free Republic are a stark reminder that the Americanized version of the Taliban are alive and well.

Campion's Law!: "As a FR discussion lengthens, the probability of a libertarian or atheist FReeper comparing a Christian FReeper to al Qaeda or a Talibanic theocrat approaches one. Any FReeper who compares their opponent to al Queda or declares their oppenent an advocate of a "theocracy" has automatically lost that point of debate."
