George Tiller was shot and killed yesterday morning in Witchita, KS.  From the Associated Press:

Dr. George Tiller, one of the nation’s few providers of late-term abortions despite decades of protests and attacks, was shot and killed Sunday in a church where he was serving as an usher.

The gunman fled, but a 51-year-old suspect was detained some 170 miles away in suburban Kansas City three hours after the shooting, Wichita Deputy Police Chief Tom Stolz said.

Tiller was called, “Tiller The Baby Killer” because he performed abortions at Women’s Health Care Services in Witchita.  Mostly because he performed late-term abortions though (after the 21st week of pregnancy).  He was one of three in the nation to do so.  It was the last of a number of attacks on Tiller.

From the Tiller Wiki:  Tiller was targeted by violent extremists as well as other opponents. Abortion opponents kept a daily vigil outside his clinic.  On August 19, 1993, he was shot in both arms outside of the Wichita clinic by Shelley Shannon, who received an 11-year prison sentence for the crime. On May 31, 2009, Tiller was shot to death as he served as an usher during the Sunday morning service at his church in Wichita.

Maybe if the suspect would have used a long needle instead of a gun to kill him the cops might just have let him go?  I don’t know, Kansas law is pretty strange.    But………..We find it ironic the number of lifelines and futures this guy violently ripped out of existence.

Soul or no soul…..human or just a piece of meat…….life or an unconscious animal……….It’s  irrelevant.   The fact of the matter is hundreds of 60-120 year lifelines were completely removed from our universe to fulfill some level of current human convenience.   This doctor’s life was snuffed out in just as violent a fashion as any aborted baby.  This sad state of affairs our country is in makes for an interesting discussion. We don’t condone murder of any sort and view the loss of ANY human life as a saddening circumstance.
