James Pouillon, aka "the sign guy," was the abortion rights opponent gunned down in suburban Owosso, Michigan, early Friday morning. Shortly after his murder, a Facebook Friend of mine with a conservative political outlook posted the question: "Where is the outrage?"
Her point being that when famous abortion doctor George Tiller was murdered a few months ago, expressions of condolence from all sides of the abortion debate rocketed through the Internet within a short time...
Well, we now know what the authorities are telling us. According to the Detroit News:
"We believe Mr. Drake was not happy with the way Mr. Pouillon was protesting," said Chief Shiawassee County Assistant Prosecutor Sara Edwards.
The day that Dr. Tiller was killed, I was easily able to cull a series of condemnations from my e-box from individuals and organizations opposed to abortion and I posted excerpts from several of the statements here...
Let's grant that Dr. Tiller was famous before he was killed and that nobody much outside of Owosso had ever heard of Pouillon a week ago. And let's also grant that nobody has come up with any connections thus far between the suspect in Pouillon's murder and any organization with any stand concerning abortion.
But Pouillon is sure famous now. And two days after his murder, I can find few statements about it, pro forma or otherwise, on any of the websites of any of the prominent organizations that support abortion rights.
Not NARAL. Not NOW. Not Planned Parenthood. Not Catholics for Choice.

If it were the other way around, this would be news for weeks.
Let me use the logic of the elite media and the pro-abort crowd:
I have not heard any strong condemnations of the murder of James Pouillon. (I have not been listening for any either.) Therefore, everybody in the pro-choice crowd supports the murder of passionate pro-life advocates.
This sounds ridiculous, of course, but it’s the same reasoning that pro-aborts applied when George Tiller was murdered.
However, unlike the specious conclusion of the pro-abort crowd, the conclusion in the argument above is correct. If they could speak, I’m sure that the most passionate pro-life advocates would be the unborn.
And where’s the immediate condemnation from our fearless leader?
Your conclusion is logical. Pro-abortion advocates have already proven that they support the murder of innocents.
I happened to see a story on one of the morning news shows today - don’t know which one - about the tenth anniversary of Matthew Sheppard’s murder. What about coverage of something that happened FOUR DAYS AGO?
The silence is deafening.
If Sheppard’s murder was a hate crime, Pouillon’s most certainly was also.
I’ll have a look. thanks.
