Not Pro-Life

Late term abortionist George Tiller was shot today while at church. Just as in the few incidents of violence done to abortionists through the last 3 decades, this act is being condemned by pro-life groups. Needless to say, anyone who would kill another person in cold blood is NOT pro-life, they are just crazy.

Update: Recent Statements put out regarding this murder:

“Kansans for Life deplores the murder of Dr. George Tiller, and we wish to express our deep and sincere sympathy to his family and friends.Our organization has a board of directors, and a 35 year history of bringing citizens together to achieve thoughtful education and legislation on the life issues here in Kansas. We value life, completely deplore violence, and are shocked and very upset by what happened in Wichita today. “ -- Mary Kay Culp, State Executive Director, Kansans for Life

"We are shocked at this morning's disturbing news that Mr. Tiller was gunned down. Operation Rescue has worked for years through peaceful, legal means, and through the proper channels to see him brought to justice. We denounce vigilantism and the cowardly act that took place this morning. We pray for Mr. Tiller's family that they will find comfort and healing that can only be found in Jesus Christ." - - Troy Newman, president of anti-abortion group Operation Rescue

"I'm shocked by this senseless tragedy and my thoughts are with Dr. Tiller's family during this difficult time." - - Kansas Governor Mark Parkinson

“I am stunned by this lawless and violent act which must be condemned and should be met with the full force of law. We join in lifting prayer that God's grace and presence rest with Dr. Tiller's family and friends. “ -- Phill Kline, Former Kansas Attorney General

National Right to Life extends its sympathies to Dr. Tiller's family over this loss of life.

Further, the National Right to Life Committee unequivocally condemns any such acts of violence regardless of motivation. The pro-life movement works to protect the right to life and increase respect for human life. The unlawful use of violence is directly contrary to that goal.

AK governor Sarah Palin released the following statement concerning the death of abortion doctor George Tiller.

I feel sorrow for the Tiller family. I respect the sanctity of life and the tragedy that took place today in Kansas clearly violates respect for life. This murder also damages the positive message of life, for the unborn, and for those living. Ask yourself, 'What will those who have not yet decided personally where they stand on this issue take away from today's event in Kansas?'Regardless of my strong objection to Dr. Tiller's abortion practices, violence is never an answer in advancing the pro-life message.
