Posted on 06/07/2009 11:29:06 AM PDT by September
After reading numerous Statements on the Death of George Tiller from high profile pro-life leaders which said we must strongly condemn such senseless acts of violence, killing is never the answer, and anyone who is truly pro-life will be saddened by Dr. Tillers death I had to ask myself one question.
If a doctor went mad and began a murderous rampage killing infants in a hospital maternity ward and a good citizen stopped him with deadly force would people condemn that concerned citizen as a murderer and call his actions a senseless act of violence? That would be unthinkable. He would be extolled as brave American hero who saved babies from a deranged mass murderer.
However after the shooting of Dr. Tiller Ive learned most people, even those who are pro-life, do not speak well of individuals who stop abortion doctors with deadly force, even though these doctors are serial child killers.
Why do these two scenarios evoke such different responses from people if children are being killed by a doctor in both cases?
The best I understand it is the children abortionists kill are the "undesirables" in our society, just like the Jews were in Hitlers Germany. Human beings who are unwanted, dehumanized, and stripped of civil rights. Second, people do not speak well of someone who uses deadly force to stop an abortionist because it is legal for a doctor to kill these children, just like it was legal to kill Jews.
Although it was legal to kill Jews in Hitler's Germany it was not right, and the Nazis were murderers even though their laws vindicated them. Importantly, the doctors in the death camps were murderers not merely because a Tribunal said so, those doctors were murders because they committed widespread inhumane atrocities, barbaric crimes against humanity, and systematic state-sponsored extermination of millions of people.
Today abortion doctors engage in the state-sponsored extermination of millions of human beings, widespread inhumane atrocities, and barbaric crimes against humanity. In the name of civility and in an effort to save children from mass murder at the hands of an abortion doctor I do not condemn Scott Roeder for stopping a serial child killer with deadly force, but extol him as a brave American hero.
Let us pray abortion will also be criminalized as the Holocaust is.
There’s a big difference between a doctor who went “mad” and started killing and Mr Tiller.Sudden “madness” can,I believe,be biological in nature and,thus,be witnessed with sadness rather than anger or contempt.Mr Tiller,OTOH,wasn’t “mad”.He was simply a psychopath,utterly devoid of conscience.A lot like Mao...Stalin...Pol Pot...Hitler.I do not shed a single tear at the passing of Mr Tiller.I only regret that it was a bullet,rather than a lightening bolt,a flesh eating bacteria,or a particularly ugly and painful form of cancer,that did him in.
NO, he did not.
Tiller never worked for free.
Who says babies of color are the primary victims of abortion?
I know Sangerism (eugenics) is focused at destroying minoroties (pure racism and hatred of the worst sort, but I am not sure it works out that way with abortion rates.
Note that SecState Clinton smiled and gladly accepted the Sanger award for some sort of womanly achievement...).
I’d love to see the stats (attributed to a researcher of course)
Wasn’t the Slave Trade made illegal in the U.S. in 1807?
The defeat of the Brittish was the first item on the agenda.
Yes, but still by our founders.
Much happened between 1776, the Declaration, the war of 1812 and the Constitution.
However, it was pretty much the same founders involved, in different ways.
My thought was that it was a good trade, giving up ones life to stop that man from continuing to murder babies. If I were on the jury, and was an honest judge, I would have to say “guilty” if he was the triggerman. But at the same time, I would stand and salute him to the hangman’s rope. That man needed killing.
Laws written by dictators and tyrants (or judges) are usually asinine..
It’s out there and you can find it easily if you care to. For starters though, well over half (perhaps 60%) of the abortions are from a group that makes up only 12 or 13 percent of our population...
Hugin & GoldStandard : I would normally agree with you, however, I would submit that we are no longer a nation that follows the ‘Rule of Law’. If we followed the rule of law Barack Obama would have been impeached over his obvious unconstitutional acts associated with the Bail out and bankruptcies of Chrysler and GM. Barney Frank & Chris Dodd would be facing trial for their blatant influence peddling and corruption associated with the collapse of Fanny & Freddie and the housing market. And Dr George Tiller would be in prison for performing illegal abortions as he was accused of just a few short months ago.
No. We live in a country almost wholly controlled by a political elite that cares little about what their constituents feel because almost none of them are ever not reelected. Gerrymandering and political dealing have driven us so far from a recognizable civil society that there is little hope that we will long survive as a free people.
It is NEVER right to do WRONG in order to get a chance to do right.
Your “ends justify the means” argument may excuse murder — even the murder of an evil person — in your mind. But it violates every moral principle upon which the Pro-Life message rests.
It is this kind of reasoning that will eventually lead to an unnecessary and premature conflict based on emotion rather than reason, feelings rather than principles. When that conflict comes, we can ill afford to base our motives on emotions and revenge rather than responsible moral convictions.
Blacks abort at a rate 4x that of whites , you could blame that on a breakdown in the family (thanks welfare!) , single parent families (thanks welfare!, thanks radical feminism!), greater economic pressures ...
However to say that blacks abort because nobody will adopt their children is complete and utter BULL. Americans have been adopting children from all over the world for decades because abortion has cut off the supply of US born children...
You give me the names of 100 pregnant women who would give their child up for adoption and I will find you qualified adoptive parents who will pay medical expenses and a stipend for living expenses up to the birth... it’ll take me only a few weeks and that only because it would take time to get the word out.
I do not condemn Scott Roeder for stopping a serial child killer with deadly force, but extol him as a brave American hero.
Oh really newbie?
FYI, Scott Roeder is a mentally ill psychotic.
And its vanity posts LIKE THIS that gives all the 'proof' the left, the MSM, the Attorney General and Dept of Homeland Security needs that all pro-lifers are armed, dangerous, and ticking time bombs just waiting to go off on a killing spree of all abortion doctors and clinics. And as such 'we' need to be held under strict surveillance and disarmed before 'we' go on a 'Religious Right Jihad'.
And that DHS memo on Right Wing Extremists must of had YOU n mind when they wrote it, as YOU are insane. So go back to your padded cell asap. 'Help' like yours is not needed.
'Extol' that ya nut case TROLL.
Here’s my law, anyone touches my children, I’ll kill them where they stand as painfully as I can. And that goes for any Planned Parenthhood jerk that helps a daughter with an abortion.
Hitler had “laws” for what he did too - so have other murdering despots over the years. Just because it’s “legal” doesn’t make it right. Our judicial system has become so perverse and corrupt that it is no wonder that vigilanties rise up.
If my foster parents and my in-laws generation had had some backbone when the gays started out of the closet and the baby butcher shops opened we might not be where we are today. Instead, they whispered in the church pew “what a shame” and “how awful” when THEY should have been the ones kicking judicial and activist a$$. Now it’s a plague on the land and when someone finally does step on one of the scumbags, there’s weeping and wailing and nashing of teeth.
Where’s the vigilante defense fund? I want to contribute.
Now thanks for playing and go home troll
