    The Hippocratic Oath means nothing to medical student Rozalyn Farmer Love. Not only did her June 7th op-ed in “The Washington Post” demonstrate the left’s logically and morally flawed argument in favor of abortion, but it also raises concerns about those who are entering the medical field and the morals they feel free to ignore. Love, who plans to become an obstetrician-gynecologist dreams “of delivering healthy babies, working with families and supporting midwifery,” but was writing in an attempt to justify her own support for abortion, even while she asserted that “When I advocate for reproductive rights, for choice, I...

    The recent murder of late-term abortion specialist Dr. George Tiller cast a spotlight once again on the violent fringe of the pro-life movement. What motivates them? How do they differ from the law-abiding citizens who work and demonstrate against abortion? Some critics of the pro-life movement have recycled the old charge that what sets the handful of violent pro-lifers apart is their moral seriousness. Unlike the hypocrites who content themselves with protests and lobbying, the argument goes, those who bomb clinics and assassinate abortionists have the courage of their conviction that abortion is murder. Writes William Saletan in Slate, "If...

    MANY PEOPLE in the field of genetics are mourning the murder of Dr. George Tiller as the loss of a personal friend. I'm one of them. I first met George in 1987 at a conference of the National Society of Genetic Counselors, where I was executive director for 18 years until 2005. He and his incredibly loyal staff - whom he treated with great generosity - had developed a procedure that provided excellent medical care but also respect and emotional support to the women who came to him for help.

    Washington, DC ( -- Former abortion practitioner Bernard Nathanson, who has since converted to the pro-life position, was a former mentor of George Tiller, the slain late-term abortion practitioner. In a new interview, Nathanson said he was surprised that Tiller never became pro-life himself because of new medical technologies.Nathanson is no stranger to the abortion industry, having done more than 75,000 abortions himself during the 1960s and 1970s and presiding over one of the nation's premier pro-abortion groups, NARAL.He earned widespread praise from the pro-life movement for his movie "Silent Scream" which showed the advancement in ultrasound technology and...

    Wednesday's shooting at the Holocaust Museum in D.C.—the second attack by a domestic terrorist in two weeks—killed one and left others injured. As details on the suspect, a white supremacist leader, come to light, a controversial government memo on right-wing terror earlier this year deserves another look. To the nation's horror, a much-maligned Department of Homeland Security memo on right-wing extremism is looking more accurate by the day. With news of a horrific incident of domestic terrorism Wednesday at the Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C., the second major attack by a far-right gunman in less than two weeks, the...

    Abortion on demand: empowerment -- or bamboozlement -- of women? Last week's murder of Dr. George Tiller, probably the world's most committed abortion provider, evoked a storm of emotive rhetoric from familiar antagonists in the never-quite-dormant abortion debate over "rights." Those advocating for an unborn child's right to live once again faced off against those advocating for a woman's right to terminate a life within her own body. There's a third side to the debate that gets short media shrift: emerging knowledge about medical risks surrounding induced abortion (IA). Throughout 40 years of highly publicized ideological squabbling, researchers in the...

    During the persecution of Christians in the reign of Marcus Aurelius, the Roman prefect Rusticus was frustrated by the serene equanimity of the Christian convert Justin, a Platonic philosopher. The Romans considered Christianity a superstitio parva (a perverse superstition) and classified its morality as immodica (immoderate) for, among other things, refusing to abort the unborn and "expose" the newly born. Bereft of rational arguments against Christians, Nero blamed them for burning Rome, as some would blame the Jews for the bubonic plague. The demagogic policy, updated by Lenin and made a political craft in our day, was "never let a...

If the public were asked to identify George Tiller, aka Tiller the Baby Killer, there’s little doubt that, after the “mainstream” news coverage of last week, many would be able to do so.

The word abortion was never uttered. ... Clearly they all knew: Tiller was murdered for his "life's" work, but the reason was unmentionable? Sad. Even in death George Tiller's "vocation" was anathema. Imagine eulogizing anyone else murdered for a cause without extolling that for which they were slain. On the contrary, why...

Gandhi won, not because he used violence, but because he used non-violence, and his opponents used violence against him. The strategy of non-violence works because it calls forth the worst manifestations of the evil in the hearts of those against whom the non-violent protest is aimed.

(It's not like Crawford, Texas, ached for Cindy Sheehan, either, but she was more to Time's liking.) And he strangely suggested that first-trimester or second-trimester babies are somehow "abstract" on a moral scale: Tiller was the rare physician willing to follow America's ambivalence about abortion to its ragged edge. In his drab clinic here with hospital beds in the basement, Tiller performed not only comparatively abstract early...

    The Technology of Low-Cost Murder Now come chemical abortifacients. This is what is going to stop physicians from practicing abortion in the United States. Price competition is the great threat to the local abortionist, not some self-appointed revolutionary bringer of justice like yourself. It is the fact that women will be able to walk into some large store or local drug store and buy some pills -- "morning after" pills -- for $10.95 (or $39.95, on special, for a giant, economy-size bottle), take those pills, and kill their own infants. Price competition is the looming treat to the killer physicians,...

    News of Dr. George Tiller's death was only hours old last week when bloggers began asking the question: What kind of church accepts a doctor who performs abortions into its membership? "I wonder what kind, if any, preaching against sin this church did since Tiller felt welcomed there," opined Blue Collar Todd, who declares on his blog that "liberalism, or sometimes called progressivism, is a false religion that stands in total antithesis to biblical Christianity." Todd has already made up his mind, and so have others who called or e-mailed me this week to criticize a column I wrote describing...

    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. Tiller’s 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...

    Forgive me if I'm wrong, but aren't 3rd tri-mester abortions ONLY legal if they're "medically necessary"? I find it hard to believe that all of the abortions Tiller performed were medically necessary. Just saying.

    WHERE WAS PVT. LONGS SECURITY!!! An Islamic jihadist murders an American soldier, and a hijab-wearing Muslim woman shows up at a memorial rally for him, claiming Muslim victimization and proclaiming Islamic supremacist dogma -- "Jesus was Muslim!," etc. -- and railing about how "Jews" control the New York Times and Fox News. Don't miss the point toward the end of the video when a friend of the hijabbed woman asks those conducting the memorial to "please go away" -- as if this is suddenly an event that the Islamic supremacists control.

CraineJune 5, 2009 ( – Following the killing of late-term abortionist George Tiller on Sunday, blame for the murder has been thrown at the pro-life movement and social conservatives by abortion supporters and by much of the mainstream media. Fox’s Bill O’Reilly, host of ‘The O’Reilly Factor,’ has been one central target of accusations of...
  • Security tight for Tiller funeral

    Hundreds are expected to turn out this morning under tight security for the funeral service for George Tiller, the Kansas physician specializing in late term abortions who was gunned down in the vestibule of his Lutheran church where he was working as an usher Sunday. The suspect in his death, Scott Roeder, a 51-year-old man with dire financial problems who authorities say flirted with a number of militia-style protests against the government before becoming fixated on the abortion issue, has been charged in Tiller's death.

    Community Standards Your problem is a theological one. But you did address a real problem. The problem you addressed is the problem you would not admit. The problem is that the American community agrees with the Supreme Court of the United States. The general American public agrees that abortion should be legal. Maybe it does not agree that the third-trimester abortions should be legal, but it is not going to throw out of office the civil magistrates who enforce the Supreme Court's ruling. In fact, the Supreme Court has authorized third-trimester abortion and any other kind of abortion, but the...
