    A moral civil war: The truth is millions of Americans believe Dr 'Baby Killer' Tiller deserved to die By DAVID JONES 06th June 2009 Somewhere beside a busy freeway in the dreary suburbs of Wichita, Kansas, there stands an anonymous, single-storey building. Its cream walls are stained by exhaust fumes and it has no external windows. Guarded night and day by a private security patrol and CCTV cameras, and surrounded by 'No Trespassing' signs, it could be a top-security prison. As vandals have spattered the perimeter fence with something that looks like congealed blood, it might equally be a laboratory...

    Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- MSNBC talking head Keith Olbermann has named pro-life nurse and blogger Jill Stanek the "Worst Person in the World" during that segment of his Thursday night broadcast. Stanek is the pro-life nurse who uncovered live birth abortions at a hospital in Chicago that led to a national law prohibiting the practice.On her blog, Stanek has noted how late-term abortion practitioner LeRoy Carhart of Nebraska is one of the few remaining people to do abortions so late in pregnancy now that George Tiller has been killed.As LifeNews.com has noted, Stanek posted pictures of Carhart's Belleview-based abortion...

    Of George Tiller's soul, God is now the judge; though I have no doubt that from a human perspective his enthusiastic practice of child murder for profit will forever deserve our unequivocal condemnation. This of course implies no approval of the apparently deranged act that took his life. The aim of all authentic pro-life people is to restore respect for innocent human life. We rightly condemn and lament an action that harms the good we seek to achieve.

    Home / Globe / Opinion / Op-ed Ellen Goodman IT IS believed that the shooter acted alone. Surely, that's true. No one else was standing beside suspect Scott Roeder when it is believed he murdered Dr. George Tiller in the sanctuary of his church. But Michael Griffin also acted alone when he killed David Gunn in 1993. Paul Hill acted alone when he killed John Britton in 1994. John Salvi acted alone and so did Eric Rudolph and James Kopp. This suspect is hardly lonely in this murderous cast of lone actors.

    The Question of Judicial Representation In your paper, "Was the Killing of Dr. Gunn Just?" on page 4, you cite R. J. Rushdoony's 1971 book "The One and the Many." You cite his discussion of the Trinity, in which he discusses the Trinity as being equally one and equally many: the equal ultimacy of both unity and diversity. As a philosophical concept, this is a correct analysis of the meaning of the Trinity. But then you apply it in a unique way. You write: "All of reality reflects the nature of God and the equal ultimacy of the one and...

    On Sunday morning, regrettably, a kind of crude frontier justice caught up with late abortionist George Tiller. He was shot and killed in the foyer of his Wichita church. For the left, Scott Roeder, the accused killer, had alchemized the unholy dross of a corrupt late term abortionist into martyr’s gold. In the entirely apt words of Dan McLaughlin, "Even before anything was known about Roeder, the left side of the blogosphere reacted to Dr. Tiller's murder as if it was Christmas morning and they just got a pony.” If so, then Santa Claus was none other than Secretary of...

    WICHITA - At least two Wichita billboard companies say they will not run billboards from an animal rights group that were prompted by the death of a local abortion provider. "It's in poor taste considering the crisis that's going on in the community right now," said John Lay, president of George Lay Signs Inc. "I don't see anything patently offensive about the ads, but the timing is just not appropriate." The proposed billboards, designed by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, urge people on both sides of the abortion debate to go vegetarian. One says, "Pro-Life? Go Vegetarian"; the...

Tiller was shot and killed May 31 while serving as an usher for Sunday worship at nearby Reformation Lutheran Church, where he was a member. Tiller was 67.

    Wichita, KS (LifeNews.com) -- Since his shooting death last weekend, the mainstream media and abortion advocates have gone out of their way to paint late-term abortion practitioner George Tiller as a champion of women. However, their portrayal of Tiller neglects any mention of the women he killed or injured in botched abortions.While hundreds of pro-life groups have forcefully condemned alleged gunman Scott Roeder for killing Tiller, and, while his record presents no reason for his death, Tiller was anything but a protector of women's health.Perhaps the biggest blunder in Tiller's career of doing legal, and supposedly safe, abortions was the...

After the brutal September 11 attacks, the United States must once again wage a war in a foreign land.As always, the problem of the legitimacy of using military action for revenge as a means of re-establishing justice comes to the fore. Thus, it is in the interest of our readers to bring to their attention the traditional Catholic doctrine on the subject.Saint Augustine (354-430)The great Saint Augustine provided the...

    The Guilt of the Community In your defense of the killing of Dr. Gunn, you continually refer to the "community." I always get suspicious when people appeal to collectives in order to justify individual action. You quote from Michael Bray's paper supporting Operation Rescue. This is under the section, "Ethical Basis for Defensive Action." Here is what Michael Bray said, according to you: "The fact is that the guilt for the shedding of innocent blood remains upon the citizenry until the punishment is exacted from the offender. Blood guilt is purged only through punishment of the guilty. If the crime...

    GEORGE TILLER knew the danger of providing late-term abortions. His home was picketed, his office was blown up and in 1993 he was shot in both arms by an anti-abortion zealot. He never considered stopping his work, because he knew there were women who needed his help. His murder is a tragedy for his family, his patients and his profession. It should serve as a wake-up call that more must be done to ensure that women have access to this legal procedure.

    When a right-wing Christian vigilante kills, millions of fingers pull the trigger. When a left-wing Muslim vigilante kills, he kills alone. These are the instantly ossifying narratives in the Sunday shooting death of late-term abortion provider George Tiller of Kansas versus the Monday shootings of two Arkansas military recruiters. Tiller's suspected murderer, Scott Roeder, is white, Christian, anti-government and anti-abortion. The gunman in the military recruitment center attack, Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad, is black, a Muslim convert, anti-military and anti-American. Both crimes are despicable, cowardly acts of domestic terrorism. But the disparate treatment of the two brutal cases by both the...

I pray also for Tiller's wife, four children and 10 grandchildren, not only for their tragic loss but also for the tragic legacy Tiller left behind. It is falsely claimed Tiller was one of only three late-term abortionists in the U.S., for instance, in the New York Times: Some described...

    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...

    A friend recalls her visit to Dr. George Tiller's clinic. You can read another memory of Dr. Tiller here: It was horrible. We were driving onto the grounds and the protesters were there with their ugly pictures yelling at us. Just yelling. Then we got inside and it was calm, very professional. Those people are miracle workers, every last one of them, from the littlest nurse to the admin guys. They had to know their lives were in danger, and there was security everywhere, but they just wanted to reassure us. The baby had contracted a virus and you could...

    This is a link to the church of Tiller the Killer. I have to say that going through their web-site made me feel somewhat sick to the stomach. I was expecting this to be a church that omits the name of Jesus Christ from their teachings, with a weird blend of New Age and Secularism. Instead their mission statement tends to talk about being guided by the Holy Spirit and how we're a sinful people loved by God. They have links to their music and worship services and lots of smiling children pictures. At a glance, the church doesn't seem...

    There are few sights more disgusting than the American political left displaying its dark side - - as it did immediately following the murder of abortionist George Tiller on Sunday. When I read some of the trash articles making accusations that conservatives in general and Bill O’Reilly in particular were responsible for Tiller’s murder, the words which came to mind were “vile malevolence.” Accusations like this are examples of what psychologists call projection: the attribution of one’s own ideas, feelings, or attitudes to other people; especially : the externalization of blame, guilt, or responsibility as a defense against anxiety. In...

    In Kansas on Sunday, radical abortionist George Tiller met his end in a church foyer. Less than 24 hours later, two uniformed American servicement were attacked on American soil, allegedly by a Muslim convert. One of these attacks has been roundly condemned and publicized endlessly, with the victim becoming an iconic martyr overnight, and the President expressing his outrage. The other incident is More.. being ignored. What's the difference between the two?

    LeRoy Carhart wants to continue providing third-term abortions after the slaying of his friend George Tiller, but the Nebraska doctor doesn’t have anywhere to perform them — and he’s one of only a handful of providers who will. Tiller’s Wichita, Kan., clinic was shuttered Sunday after the 67-year-old was gunned down at church. His family said Tuesday they were unsure when it would reopen, posing a problem for Carhart, who wants to carry on his friend’s mission. Carhart, 67, is one of a handful of remaining doctors in the United States who perform third-trimester abortions, and it is uncertain if...

    In the very heart of the pro-life community, there is nothing they wanted less than another shooting of an abortionist. An unhinged vigilante's shooting of notorious Kansas late-term abortion "provider" George Tiller prompted an avalanche of press releases from pro-life groups denouncing the killing. Why bother? Let's face it. The national media had zero interest in spotlighting a pro-life spokesman expressing horror, because let's face it, they don't believe it. Instead, as with ABC, they found anonymous citizens on the website Twitter saying "Oh, happy, day. Tiller the baby killer is dead." Another wrote, "God bless the gunman." It was...

    WICHITA - A national animal rights group plans to erect billboards in Wichita urging people on both sides of the abortion debate to go vegetarian. One version of the billboard says, "Pro-Life? Go Vegetarian." The other says, "Pro-Choice? Choose Vegetarian." Both feature a photo of three baby chicks. Lindsay Rajt, campaign manager for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, said the billboards were prompted by the recent shooting death of abortion doctor George Tiller, who was killed Sunday at his church. "The discussion of the value of life is front and center right now in the public conversation," Rajt...
  • Murder Of U.S. Soldier Recieves Much Less Coverage Than Killing Of An Abortionist Doctor. Why?

    James Kirchick, Assistant Editor of the "New Republic," argues that "in the coming days, we will hear more about how mainstream conservative organizations and media personalities created an 'environment' in which the murder of an abortion doctor became an inevitability. Just as talk radio was blamed for the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing, an attempt will be made to extend the guilt for this crime from the individual who pulled the trigger to the conservative movement writ large. But the Christian right's responsible reaction to the death of George Tiller should put to rest the lie that Judeo-Christian extremists are anywhere...

    When a right-wing Christian vigilante kills, millions of fingers pull the trigger. When a left-wing Muslim vigilante kills, he kills alone. These are the instantly ossifying narratives in the Sunday shooting death of late-term abortion provider George Tiller of Kansas versus the Monday shootings of two Arkansas military recruiters. Tiller's suspected murderer, Scott Roeder, is white, Christian, anti-government and anti-abortion. The gunman in the military recruitment center attack, Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad, is black, a Muslim convert, anti-military and anti-American. Both crimes are despicable, cowardly acts of domestic terrorism. But the disparate treatment of the two brutal cases by both the...
