I just heard that George Tiller, the Kansas physician known for providing late-term abortions, was shot to death today.
As much I disagree with the work of abortion providers, such news is absolutely horrifying. Another life squandered by gun violence–and in the same of "prolife," of all things!!
Whoever committed this crime-it makes no sense to call yourself "prolife" and then gun down another human being in cold blood. Any more than it would make sense to oppose the war by opening fire on a recruiting center or military base.
My condolences to all who knew Dr. Tiller, and I will continue to pray for the safety of all clinic workers, to work for gun control, to speak up when I hear antiabortionists demonizing and dehumanizing their designated "enemies," who belong to the same humankind no matter what deep disagrements exist.
