Abortion doctor likens Tiller's killing to MLK's
Washington Times ^ | 9 June 2009 | Julia Duin

Posted on 06/09/2009 4:37:31 AM PDT by Aussie Dasher

Dr. LeRoy Carhart, one of the nation's few providers of late-term abortions, called on the federal government to treat as hate crimes all activities by "anti-choice domestic terrorists," compared the slain Dr. George Tiller to Martin Luther King and said planting crosses was equivalent to actions by the Ku Klux Klan.

"This is the equivalent of Martin Luther King being assassinated," Dr. Carhart said of the May 31 slaying of one of America's best-known late-term abortion providers. "This is the equivalent of Pearl Harbor, the sinking of the Lusitania and any other major historic event where we've tolerated the intolerable for too long."

Scott P. Roeder, 51, has been charged with first-degree murder and two counts of armed criminal action in the fatal shooting of Dr. Tiller.

"I think there is absolutely no difference in putting a cross in front of a person's home because of what race they belong to than there is putting a cross in front of our homes because we do abortions," said Dr. Carhart, who assisted Dr. Tiller in providing late-term abortions at his Wichita, Kan., practice every three weeks.

There the libs go again...confusing physical characteristics with behaviors.

Tiller's actions were driven by greed, selfishness, and a callous disregard for human life and the extreme emotional distress experienced by the women seeking late term abortions.

There is NOTHING righteous, selfless, or compassionate about his actions.

Did you know this man had been excommunicated from his Missouri synod church because of the abortion issue?

"I just got off the phone with Mrs. Tiller," he said, "and I know no decisions have been made about anything. What I want to assure the press and reassure the women of America is that we will somehow, somewhere continue to provide abortions later in gestation."

It seems unreal, but it is all too real, makes me heart sick.

Carhart will find that MLK’s niece feels a little different about the matter.

Of course the left will use this murder as an excuse to put normal people in jail for their opinions on abortion, and to step up repressive measures.

Instead of arresting nuns who pray near an abortion clinic, how about investigating all “minorities” who join the death cult?

It seems like Dr. Carhart is raising his profile on the dead shoulders of his former colleague. He may be giving himself more exposure than he can handle, given all the nutcases that will use violence to state their stand against abortion.

From MLK’s “I have a Dream” speech:

“”...We can never be satisfied as long as our children are stripped of their selfhood and robbed of their dignity...””

Perhaps, MLK would think robbing children of their life is even worse.

This kind of incendiary hyperbole actually does exactly the opposite of what it intends to do. Instead of generating outrage and galvanizing the baby-butchering community, it only serves to embarrass the sane middle element and discredit the entire extreme position. Anyone with half a brain — even liberals — know that a soulless creep who slaughtered children for a living isn’t the moral equal of a martyred civil rights leader. And the former’s death hardly compares to the sinking of a civilian ocean liner with the consequent loss of thousands of lives.

Nice try, Doc. Thanks for making a fool of yourself.

I would expect more from the Washington Times. They should not use the term “bankruptcy doctor,” with the care for human life that that connotes, to describe this late-term abortionist

The Left’s martyr... This is why you don't take matters into your own hands. When you give the left a martyr, they howl so, that they won't even entertain listening. Yes the man himself (Tiller) is now facing his eternal judgment, but that is God's arena, ours is to simply stand boldly and proclaim God's position, and be willing to be martyred for truth's sake.

any other major historic event where we've tolerated the intolerable for too long

Actually, I agree with him, at least on this part.
Late term abortion is "the intolerable" that we've tolerated for too long. Well, someone got tired of tolerating it and having gov't officials thwart the laws intended to stop it.

Except he didn't mean it that way.
Comparing him to MLK and then Tiller's *loss* to Pearl Harbor and the Lusitania is ... beyond words.

Except maybe to say that Dr. LeRoy Carhart is certifiably insane.

In John 11:50, the High Priest Caiaphas makes a declaration, not knowing the bigger truth that he was proclaiming:

“50You do not realize that it is better for you that one man die for the people than that the whole nation perish”

Tiller is more of a melanoma: if you stop it in time, you have a chance, otherwise, it will do alot of damage.

Carhart? That quack? Isn't he the dude that “pioneered” the partial-birth abortion technique?

Apparently Tiller was guite the guy in the baby-slaughter industry. In my book, he’s no better than Josef Mengele. Yes, too bad he had to be murdered, but he’s done with the killing.

Wouldn’t upset me at all if Carhart were the next to be capped. Wouldn’t miss him a bit.

Ummmmmm.....ahhhhhh.....no, I don’t think that would even be a good enough reason.
