The family of Dr. George Tiller announced today that effective immediately, Women's Health Care Services, Inc., will be permanently closed. Notice is being given today to all concerned that the Tiller family is ceasing operation of the clinic and any involvement by family members in any other similar clinic.

Dr. Tiller was shot to death May 31st. Scott Roeder has been charged with murder.

A statement released this morning said, "The Tiller family wishes to assure Dr. Tiller's past patients that the privacy of their medical histories and patient records will remain as fiercely protected now and in the future as they were during Dr. Tiller's lifetime."

The family knows there’s money to be made in those records.

Violent extremism succeeds where government fails.
A lesson for all. Unresponsive government leads to anarchy and vigilantism.

Just as Europe is seeing a surge in fringe nationalist political parties because their governments have been derelict in protecting their borders and communities.

Is there any doubt that the same is bubbling just beneath the surface of American politics, when both major political parties have failed to serve the will of the people?

What, no 60-day notice?

I wonder if the baby killer’s family is even giving the workers severance pay?

Maybe they will send them to Tiller’s church’s soup kitchen.

The Revolutionary war is an example of such... there is a reason that God commanded that judges were to judge justly, not respecting positions or money, it is in that system where the people’s God-given rights are secure.

>A lesson for all. Unresponsive government leads to anarchy and vigilantism.

This is true, someone will step into the vacuum, and it might be someone that we DON’T want.

God Bless the Tiller family for closing that baby-killing factory. I wish them peace and comfort for their loss of Dr. Tiller. I trust the Lord will turn their tragedy for His good and heal their hearts. I hope someday they will be able to see the horror of Dr. Tiller’s actions for what it was in God’s eyes.

Perhaps his family did not share his sinful ideas.

Perhaps they did:

"We are proud of the service and courage shown by our husband and father and know that women's health care needs have been met because of his dedication and service. That is a legacy that will never die. The family will honor Dr. Tiller's memory through private charitable activities."

I’m trying to nail this down:

Is it a good thing that Tiller is dead?

Is it a good thing that Tiller was killed?

Is it a good thing that Person X killed Tiller?

Did the killer do a good thing? A Godly thing?

Is it a good thing that the killer did what he did? A Godly thing?

You may be correct. I found this on LifeSite:

“”The family of Dr. George Tiller announces that effective immediately, Women’s Health Care Services, Inc., will be permanently closed,” stated attorneys Lee Thompson and Dan Monnat today. “Notice is being given today to all concerned that the Tiller family is ceasing operation of the clinic and any involvement by family members in any other similar clinic.”

The statement went on to praise Tiller’s “service and courage” and asserted that Tiller’s family would honor his memory through “private charitable activities.” “

I guess they consider the killing of pre-born humans a *service.* ;-(

A doc in CO claims he will carry on Tiller’s activity, if not his clinic.

Where there’s a buck to be made, someone will fill the gap.

Probably not. The last abortionist killed was like 11 years ago. More women die getting abortions than doctors die for giving them.

God can turn to good what was meant for evil.

While the act of killing Tiller may have been meant for good, it was still murder (perhaps--the argument can go both ways in my mind).

After all was it a Good Thing that Moses killed that Roman?
Was it a Good Thing that Judas betrayed Jesus?

I see a very likely severe backlash coming here. Pro-lifers will be further painted as “domestic terrorists” who “can’t be allowed to succeed by way of violence”. I see the distinct possibility that this will provide justification for this current administration to even more aggressively fund and support this barbaric sacrament. My concerns are not for those of us who are already born, but for the others. This could actually be very bad news. Has anybody else thought of that?

I wholeheartedly agree, and that's why I think that those of us (on this board and elsewhere) who have expressed sympathy or approval of this guy Roeder's actions (or have even hinted at such) have done a great disservice to our cause. From what I've read about the guy, I do not hesitate to call Roeder a terrorist - using violence to intimidate or to attempt to further political objectives is clearly terrorism - and as such (in order to try to avoid pro-lifers being branded as "domestic terrorists") I think it is important to make it clear that Roeder was most certainly not "pro-life." Murderers are not pro-life, period.

Now, of course, whatever we do, the 0bama folks and the MSM will do what they're going to do - demonize us, increase abortion funding, etc. - I just don't think we should be giving them more ammunition to use against us by supporting Roeder or his actions in any way.

Considered and dismissed by whom? I can almost hear the various MSNBC raging nincompoops going down that road already. I may very well be wrong - and would very much like to be on this one - but, no, I don’t think it’s “silly”. Sure, I’m extremely glad this place of gruesome murder is to be closed, but I’m not sure this is the last play by any means.

I'm enjoying the angst over this decision at D.U... even the posts that say the "terrorists have won".

If abortion is such an essential activity, where is the courage of the clinic? Why not say they will "carry on as Dr Tiller would have blah blah.."

The reason I dismiss it is what I said on one of the later threads about this. The people are in awe of those who kill, because killers have the power to inflict death. Leaving aside any consideration of morality, and most Americans couldn’t care less about morality, this power holds them in thrall, for exactly the same reason they consider Obama to be a ‘sort of God’.

Tiller chose a “live by the sword” sort of business. That he died by the sword is something I see as more or less a predictable consequence. I neither laud nor condemn the shooter. Each of these men will ultimately answer to someone other than me and that part of things is none of my business. Leaving aside the bad things to be said about pro-life people as a result of this thing, I really didn’t care any more about this man dying that I did about the deaths of John Gotti or Carlos Gambino, for example. They chose a life that lead to death.

For years, we’ve been “teaching” the left that we’ll shut up and stop telling the truth about them if they call us racists.

They’ve just “taught” us that if their bought politicians won’t enforce the laws and some nut takes matters in his own hands, that they’ll fold up shop and go.
