    Hitler's Muslim Nephew Comes to New York September 24, 2007 Kenneth R. Timmerman What was New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg thinking? Apparently the former Democrat believed that escorting Iran’s Hitler-wannabe president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, to the site of the September 11 memorial at Ground Zero would generate a terrific photo op. “Here I am with world leaders,” that type of thing. After all, Bloomberg has already made his appearance at the “World Leaders Forum” at Columbia University, so he was in the zone. And last year, U.S. News & World Report crowned him as one of America’s “best leaders.” But...

    WICHITA, Kan. — The judge considering the sentence of Scott Roeder, convicted of murdering abortion provider George Tiller, on Friday stopped Roeder from continuing to read a written statement after 40 minutes, saying "It is your opportunity to convince me you need a lesser sentence.

    A born-again Christian who said he killed a prominent US abortion doctor to save the lives of unborn babies has been sentenced to life in prison with no chance of parole for 50 years. Judge Warren Wilbert also sentenced Scott Roeder, 52, to an additional two years in prison for threatening two ushers who tried to stop him as he fled after shooting Doctor George Tiller to death in the foyer of a Kansas church last May. Tiller, 67, was one of a handful of doctors in the United States to perform abortions into the third trimester of pregnancies and...

    WICHITA, Kan. - The convicted killer of a Kansas abortion provider has little sympathy for the family of his victim, comparing them to the relatives of a hit man in a recording posted online. In his first public comments since his trial for the murder of Dr. George Tiller, Scott Roeder also criticized those who sought to keep the issue of abortion out of the proceedings altogether, saying it was like asserting that the trial for abolitionist John Brown was not about slavery. "My beliefs were that the lives of unborn children were being taken by abortion," Roeder said in...

Writes Bill Donohue of the Catholic League: 'Allred, who has not seen the ad, charges that when Tebow's mother was being advised by doctors in the Philippines to consider an abortion (she was on antibiotics for a pregnancy illness), it was illegal there to have one. In a monumental stretch, Allred reasons that the ad should disclose this information, otherwise it is 'misleading.' 'What is really misleading is Allred's duplicity.

Tiller was one of a few physicians in the United States who performed late-term abortions and was often targeted by anti-abortion protests. Reformation is a congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA). According to CNN Roeder testified that he shot Tiller to protect unborn children. He said he had no...

    Scott Roeder's trial has begun, and, for the first time, a defense in a baby-killer-killer's (in this case, it's baby-killer Tiller's killer's) trial is predicating itself upon the moral and legal imperative to protect the lives of unborn children. Will this float? Also, we'll take a look at why the State of the Union was more like the State of Obama speech, and we'll talk about some of the WHOPPERS he told last night, while comparing his self-centered lecture with Reagan's brilliant 1982 State of the Union speech.

    The killing of Wichita, Kan., abortion doctor George Tiller was wrong. It was terrible. There just isn't any question about it; in fact, it doesn't need to be stated because it's so obviously the truth. Yet, pro-choice proponents seem to believe that pro-life people -- those who believe in the sanctity of all human life -- have just been given a licence to kill by the judge presiding over the trial of the man accused of fatally shooting Tiller. There is no dispute about Scott Roeder's admitted guilt. On May 31, 2009, he shot Tiller as the doctor was talking...

    WICHITA | Scott Roeder has confessed to the shooting of a Kansas abortion provider. The 51-year-old Kansas City man told The Associated Press in a telephone call from jail Monday that he plans to use the so-called necessity defense at his trial. Roeder contends the killing of George Tiller in May at a Wichita church was justified to protect the lives of unborn children. His confession comes as abortion opponents across the nation release a new “Defensive Action Statement” arguing for the same force to protect the unborn as is justified to protect born children.

    LOS ANGELES — “Law & Order,” the long-running NBC series about crime and punishment, rarely shies away from inflammatory topics, and Friday night it takes on one of the most contentious — abortion — for just the third time in the program’s 20 seasons. In the show’s customary ripped-from-the-headlines style, the new episode focuses on the murder, in a church, of a doctor who performs late-term abortions. Though the episode, which will be broadcast at 8 p.m. Eastern and Pacific time, begins with the disclaimer that the story “is fictional and does not depict any actual person or event,” its...

    A Virginia anti-abortion activist has sent a scathing letter to the church of slain Wichita abortion provider George Tiller, telling pastors they “brought damnation” onto themselves for failing to rebuke the “babykilling.” The Rev. Donald Spitz, a longtime advocate of the belief that killing abortion doctors is an act of justifiable homicide, said he also mailed a letter to College Hill United Methodist Church, which offered its larger sanctuary to Tiller’s family for his funeral. Tiller was shot to death in his church on May 31 while serving as an usher. Scott Roeder of Kansas City awaits a Jan. 11...

    In a recent letter to the editor, a writer called all of the O'Reillys, the Terrys and all other visceral voices condemning George Tiller as a baby killer just as guilty as the man who shot Tiller because they "poured hatred into the killer's heart." Is this the same kind of justification used to express all the pro-abortion lunatics running around this country, such as our president? I'm shocked that a person of any religion can justify the killing of babies right up to the moment they are being born and call the act "a medical procedure for those who...

    On a Sunday morning in Wichita, Kan., a man is murdered while attending church. The killing is immediately labeled a "hate crime" and an act of "domestic terrorism." The news media is outraged. Television networks act as if the man was a martyr, and the story is front-page news in every newspaper in the country. Attorney General Eric Holder orders the U.S. Marshal's Office to increase security around the slain man's business and around similar businesses. Later he announces that the Justice Department will launch a federal investigation into the murder to see if it was a conspiracy. The next...

    Are pro-life advocates complicit in the murder of George Tiller? Ellen Goodman wants you to believe so. Her column in the Billings Gazette insinuates that though the suspected killer physically acted alone, his actions are the result of a pro-life community that, instead of adamantly (or sincerely) denouncing those with extreme anti-abortion passions, inflames those passions by “casually refer[ring] to abortion as murder”, calling Obama the “most pro-abortion president ever” , “ratchet[ing] up the rhetoric on a Supreme Court nominee”, or “cull[ing] doctors from their honored profession by labeling them ‘abortionists’.

But a leader of the anti-abortion movement derided the accused shooter as "a fruit and a lunatic." Scott Roeder called The Associated Press from the Sedgwick County jail, where he's being held on...

    In a commentary today, Creighton theologian R.R. Reno parses the justifications for killing an abortion doctor like George Tiller, and finds that alleged murderer Scott Roeder came up short–though barely. Reno says that “The blanket condemnation [by Catholics bishops] of ‘violence’ seems unhelpfully expansive” and so he wants to explain that the reasons Tiller’s killer was wrong “are not as simple as they seem.” Reno says that under Christian thinking, such an action would have to satisfy three conditions: It would target the guilty, not the innocent; it would have to be necessary (principally to protect others); and it would...

    The man accused of killing Wichita abortion doctor George Tiller is a familiar name to Topeka-area law enforcement, not necessarily for his anti-abortion view, but for his anti-government activity. An anti-government license tag gave authorities the ammunition they needed April 16th, 1996, to pull over then 38-year old Scott Roeder. In his trunk, they found blasting caps, batteries, a one-pound can of gunpowder and documents on how to make hand grenades and other explosives. Authorities say they had reason to be suspicious. Then-Shawnee Co. Sheriff Dave Meneley said at the time that Roeder was on an FBI list of people...
