From the Free Republic blog commenters, courtesy of Balloon Juice:
What goes around comes around...
One less nazi as far as I am concerned.
This isn't good, boys and girls ... not good at all. This serial-killer piece of excrement will be held up by every abortionist and every lover of abortionists as the reason why the Secret Service needs to be assigned to guard every abortionist, every abortion mill and every lover of abortions in this country.

Do you understand there were people in Germany that didn't think it was wrong to send Jews to the gas chambers?
We're discussing fully-formed babies being slaughtered. Anyone that doesn't understand that is murder is as demented as a Nazi sympathizer.
You sound like a moral relativist with these analogies.
If someone comes at you or your family with a gun, that’s entirely different than if you pick up a gun and go shoot someone down who was not confronting you or your family.
“That doesn’t justify the act that took his life.”
Then why are you trying to do JUST that? Hm?
“It is reprehensible that anyone would mention George Tiller’s name with mentioning what he did for a living — murdering fully-formed unborn children that are the equivalent of infants. And, in most cases, the life of the mother wasn’t involved in his killings.”
You’re not fooling a soul. You are trying to justify this murder. It makes me sick.
Vengeance isn’t MAN’S to take.
I think there are absolute morals.
People need to live by the law. The NAZIs were in violation of international law, and most likely the laws of their own nation.
Some people are stating that it’s okay to break the law if it’s for a good cause. I am trying to explain to you, that street justice is not justice. It is an act that is outside the law.
Moral relativism is the shading of morality, to justify something you want to do real bad.
We cannot justify murder.
Liberal hypocrisy is just amazing....amazing!
So do I. But once again, the left has not adopted my morals. They have their own set of them.
If I approve of street justice, my side won’t be the only one implementing it.
What part of that do you not understand. Why are you ignoring this simple truth?
You and I agree on the matter of abortion. I want it stopped just as much as you do. This is not the way to accomplish that.
They are still using the left and Obama in their battle with the evangelical Republicans.
Exactly what authority does he have to dictate morals for everybody else?
I was against murder before I knew what abortion was. That being said, it looks like Roeder has no Pro-Life connections.
If you heard that someone had murdered Osama Bin Laden, would you feel bad that Bin Laden was dead? Or would you be happy couldn't harm any more innocent people?
I don't see how Tiller's death is any different for anyone with conscious, someone who realizes killing fully-formed babies isn't any different than killing an infant. But, apparently, you don't believe that late-term abortions are the same as killing an infant and that is what is abhorrent.
And, no, being glad that man won't be able to kill any more innocent human beings isn't the same thing as approving of someone murdering him. Only the government and God should be bringing murderers to justice.
If it turns out he's Muslim the liberals will really have a hissy fit.
You are still fooling no one.
So, it was wrong to help slaves when slavery was legal in this nation?
It WAS legal, obviously, to kill Jews in Nazi Germany. Was it wrong to break the law and save Jews from being slaughtered?
Certain acts ARE absolutely wrong, not a matter of opinion.
That doesn't justify murdering someone committing infanticide as Tiller was. There are other means to combat what Tiller was doing, just as there other means of assisting slaves and Jews to freedom.
Then I say great on two points. I don’t approve of abortion period, but late term abortions are particularly vile to me. If the child could be living outside the womb, then there is no other term for it, other than murder if termination takes place.
Surprisingly, the justice system agrees if it’s a non-licensed individual terminating the unborn. How do you wrap your head around that paradox? Well you really can’t. Murder is murder, license or no license.
It would be fantastic to find that this person has no connection whatsoever to right to life organizations.
Anyone that wants to invoke sympathy for the death of someone committing infanticide makes me sick. Tiller's death is absolutely no different than one gang member murdering another or one mafia member taking out another. Such acts have to be stopped because we can't allow anarchy. But, there is reason to feel remorse such evil men no longer are alive.
What’s your choice, become pro-abortion?
You have taken a lot of hits on this thread. I will step in the ring and say that I understand what you are saying. I will go further and say that the hypocrisy displayed by our fellow Freepers has saddened me. If abortion=murder and murder=evil then this killing was evil. Murder is murder. Are we a nation of laws? Or are we like leftists who only pick and choose what laws benefit their agendas. Otherwise they break the law with a nod and wink and do what they damn well please? How does this doctors murder change anything for the better? How does it save one baby? Another doctor, or doctors will step in,don’t doubt it. This is nothing but fuel for the opposition.
A man is dead. A man was murdered. It is wrong to excuse it.
And saying, “But he did ______ !” THAT is excusing it.
What he did was legal in the USA. You may find it repugnant, but it was legal.
You are excusing his murder while trying to claim that we can’t allow anarchy. You cannot have it both ways.
