Late term abortionist George Tiller has been murdered outside his church in Wichita, Kansas.
The suspect may be a member of the right to life movement.
Left wing blogs have already begun to claim that Christians are delighted, and that this is just the latest in a long series of violent attacks on abortionists.
In fact the reverse is true. Pro life bloggers and leaders of the pro-life movement have been united in condemming the murder of Tiller, as they have been united in condemming any violent attacks on abortionists or their clinics.
I deplore the murder of George Tiller, and any violence against abortionists or their clinics.
I also deplore the far greater number of violent attacks on pro-life people and organisations (despite the fact that the media has a massive blind spot when comes to reporting violent attacks by abortionists and their supporters).
The murder of George Tiller is a tragedy. His family and his community will miss him. The attack on him was wrong, no matter who did it, or why.
That does not mean we should pretend that what he did for a living was OK. What he did for a living was monstrous.
Late term partial-birth abortion means partially delivering a living human baby, inserting a pair of scissors or other implement into its head, then crushing its skull before completing the delivery.
George Tiller’s death was murder, and must be condemmed. What he did for a living was also murder.
