1. The increased pressure (i.e., persecution) of nonviolent pro-life associations -- this killing has and will increase the oversight of pro-life groups ad anti-prolife measures because it is so easy for abortion proponents to label every member of the pro-life community nutjob-extremists!
2. The man who killed Tiller has now deprived God of the opportunity to turn Tiller around and use him for the cause. Two contrary examples where God worked his miracles would be the conversion of Dr. Bernard Nathanson to the pro-life side. Nathanson was a New York abortionist and founder of the predecessor organization of NARAL. Second example -- Norma Jean McCorvey (Jane Roe of Roe v. Wade). If God can convert these two, and St. Paul, who ordered and oversaw the martyrdom of St. Stephen, he can certainly turn a two-bit abortion doctor given the right circumstances. Now, we will never know.
3. You have deprive a man of the opportunity to repent and amend his life (not that he would, but he could.
In sum, Tiller may be gone, but at what cost?
This incident DOES “step it up a notch”...
Mayhap the pols and the docs will think twice about thwarting the political and legal means to stop their homicide?
Exactly, Roeder deprived Tiller of the opportunity to repent for a lifetime of evil crimes against humanity.
Suppose that Roeder had been entirely stable, lucid, sane and sober, and had been directed by a "voice" to slay Tiller. In your estimation, would that "voice" have been more likely that of God, or the devil....?
My personal suspicion would be the latter...
How many young lives will be spared the good Dr. Tiller’s crematorium?
What’s the difference between bashing the kids skull in the minute he lands in Dr. Tiller’s arms, and bashing the kids skull in while inside the womb?
Life’s not an inalienable right if your mom is in a position to alienate it.
