Tiller The Dead Baby-Killer

31 01 2010

 I have to admit with sympathizing with Mr. Roeder, but I also condemn him for killing Dr. Tiller. This leaves me, for the first time in my life having to admit to being a fence sitter. Some people will read my words and condemn me for speaking truthfully, but I don’t care. This is a subject that concerns me deeply. We have been killing millions of babies in this country for over 30 years and its about time we lived-up to what we have allowed and ask for forgiveness. But we must FIRST STOP KILLING THE BABIES!

There is a part of me that really understands why Tiller was murdered in cold-blood. What he did for a living was pure evil, and him attending a Church makes no difference. Going to Church may have made him feel better, but I would bet my life that God sent him straight to hell when he died. As well he should have. I honestly don’t know what my decision would have been if had been on the jury.

That’s my two cents, for what its worth.

KANSAS CITY (Reuters) – A man accused of gunning down one of America’s few late-term abortion providers was found guilty of first-degree murder on Friday after he said he had to act to stop the doctor from performing more abortions.

U.S.

Scott Roeder, 51, was convicted of first-degree murder and aggravated assault by a Wichita, Kansas jury which deliberated for just over 30 minutes. The case attracted anti-abortion protesters from around the nation to support Roeder.

Abortion has been one of America’s most contentious and divisive issues for decades, affecting everything from local and national elections to the selection of U.S. Supreme Court justices.

Roeder admitted he stalked and shot to death Dr. George Tiller, 67, on May 31 last year as Tiller attended church in Wichita, Kansas. He argued in court his actions were necessary to protect unborn babies.

“Abortions were being done every day,” Roeder testified. “My honest belief was that if I didn’t do something they would continue to die.”

Roeder’s sentencing was set for March 9. District Attorney Nola Foulston will seek a “hard 50” mandatory life sentence, under which Roeder will have to serve 50 years in prison before becoming eligible for parole.

Tiller was long a top target of anti-abortion activists and had been shot and wounded before. He was one of only a few U.S. physicians willing to perform abortions late in pregnancy.

The doctor’s death intensified the abortion debate and the actions taken by people who want it to be illegal. Abortion was legalized in a landmark 1973 U.S. Supreme Court decision.

“While this verdict will not bring back Dr. Tiller it was very important that justice was served,” said Vicki Saporta, president of pro-abortion group the National Abortion Federation, speaking from the courthouse in Wichita.

ABORTION ACTIVISTS

“It was important for other abortion providers and it was important for ensuring the ability of women to obtain quality abortion care.”

Anti-abortion activists had hoped the trial might result in a verdict of voluntary manslaughter, while abortion rights groups feared any verdict other than a first-degree murder conviction would encourage further violence against abortion providers.

Abortion rights supporters have called on federal authorities to press an investigation into a larger conspiracy by anti-abortion activists to commit violent acts against abortion providers.

Anti-abortion activists from around America, including the founder of the prominent anti-abortion group Operation Rescue Randall Terry, flocked to Wichita to defend Roeder’s actions.

Some protesters held signs opposing abortion and supporting Roeder outside the courthouse and held press conferences referring to Tiller as a murderer himself.

Other anti-abortion groups, however, distanced themselves from violence against abortion providers.

Cheryl Sullenger of Operation Rescue, which Terry led until 1991, reiterated the group’s denunciation of Dr. Tiller’s murder, but said the organization had no further comment.

“There is no justification for this murder,” said Ann Scheidler, vice president of the Pro-Life Action League, which had been trying to shut down Dr. Tiller’s operations via the courts prior to his death. “The vast majority of pro-life activists are peaceful, law abiding people.”

“Mr. Roeder’s actions were very selfish and un-Christian and we have to pay the price for them,” she added.

but I would bet my life that God sent him straight to hell when he died. I would concur with that.

I understand that Roeder was frustrated with what “Dtr” Tiller was doing yet I personally cannot condone his killing of another human being. He should have fought the laws to reverse the late-term abortion killings (yet that is a losing battle). “Ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls.” I’m sure “Dtr” Tiller is not resting in eternity…

Is Scott Brown a traitor?

http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2010/jan/31/brown-says-he-supports-abortion-rights/?feat=home_headlines

“Sen.-elect Scott Brown, Massachusetts Republican, said Sunday that he opposes federal funding for abortions but thinks women should have the right to choose whether to have one.

Mr. Brown told ABC’s “This Week” that he disagrees with his party’s position that the Supreme Court decision legalizing abortion should be overturned.

Mr. Brown said the abortion question is one that’s best handled by a woman, her family and her doctor. He also said more effort needs to go into reducing the number of abortions in the United States.”

Any one who did their homework on Brown knew in advance of his position on abortion. He ran on the platform of representing the people, not the dem party line. Time will tell if he is a traitor to his constituents…

Yep!

Besides that, everyone knows that a Mass Republican is a far cry from being a complete Conservative. And for those that think they were fooled, you should pay better attention.

And to clarify my position…I do not advocate abortion, and I support the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act.

I do not agree with murder of an other person unless they are doing you harm.. However, late term abortion is murder of those that can not defend themselves.. These abortions were not performed early in the pregnancy, they were performed up until DAYS of natural birth, and sometimes even the day of, and that IS MURDER… Had the female been induced into labor these babies would have lived and could have been given up for adoption had the female not wanted them for whatever reason….
There needs to be laws against abortions after 3 months, the laws that we have, have loopholes that Tiller had found and used to further his legal murder spree against the weak…. And to take it even further, a woman that received these abortions should never have the chance to get pregnant again… A women that can kill her viable baby is no different then Susan Smith…
I was 17 when I had my oldest son, actually almost died myself, however, ABORTION never entered my mind… I went from 125 pounds down to 92 pounds, due to morning sickness that NEVER went away, had I waited to go to the hospital until the next day, my doctor said I would have died… My son was born at 8 months, weighed 4.6 pounds, and Now he is a strapping 220, he spent 8 years in military fighting in Iraq.. Now he is going to college and will spend the rest of his life finding a cure for things like AIDS and CANCER… The kid has a BRAIN like no other….
My second pregnancy was the same way and again ABORTION was not an option……..
I think a women that uses abortion as a form of birth control has no business having a child at all…….The only reasons a women should have an abortion is in cases of rape or incest or for medical reasons, not because it is an inconvience or the timing is not right or her boyfriend left her….. Women who do, should have their tubes tied and never be allowed to have children……
I wonder of all the aborted babies, how many would have been our president, doctors, or scientist that could have the brain power to cure cancer or aids…
And for some reason our government has taken it upon it’s self to not only fund abortion in this country but all around the world… VERY SICK, VERY, VERY SICK………
I have also decided, although I do not like what Mr. Roeder did, I will be sending him money monthly so that he can get the things he needs in prison.
And I will pray that the one life he took will be worth LESS than the babies he saved…. And that GOD will forgive him…….. I hope when he dies, he gets to sit at God feet and welcome ALL the babies his act has saved………. I believe God will have mercy on his soul…..

Wow, another simple question–this time about Scott Brown–ties Gio and DCG all up in knots. I thought that, according to you two, anyone who advocates abortion–particularly conservatives–are liars and traitors. It appears that you make exceptions for the GOP and conservatives…it’s only people you call liberal who aren’t allowed to support abortion rights, eh? It sure is a good thing that you don’t have to give reasons for that! How do you know when to attack someone for their support of abortion rights and when to be on their side…do you get a memo from someone? Does God tell you when it’s ok?

Velenda, I tend to agree with you, but then you advocate murder. If you believe that God agrees with you, I won’t attempt to argue the point. But please post the next time you become aware of a specific case in which a baby was saved because of Mr. Roeder’s act.

I sit on the fence with this, too. It is kind of like an eye for an eye.
The Dr should not have been killing 5 month old babies that could have possibly survived on their own but, Roeder should not have shot him in the middle of his church either. I guess they will both fry equally in hell.
