be careful where you clique
George Richard Tiller, MD is dead. He was shot down in his church in Wichita on May 31st, by one Scott Roeder. FBI officials claim Roeder is a member of the Montana Freemen. The Montana Freemen are a merry band of militant white guys originally from Montana (but now worldwide like Amway) who want America to be ruled by the laws set forth in the Pentateuch… hearty laws like those laid down in the good book Deuteronomy.
Suppose you hear in one of the towns the LORD your God is giving you that some worthless rabble among you have led their fellow citizens astray by encouraging them to worship foreign gods. In such cases, you must examine the facts carefully. If you find it is true and can prove that such a detestable act has occurred among you, you must attack that town and completely destroy all its inhabitants, as well as all the livestock. Then you must pile all the plunder in the middle of the street and burn it. Put the entire town to the torch as a burnt offering to the LORD your God. That town must remain a ruin forever; it may never be rebuilt. Keep none of the plunder that has been set apart for destruction. Then the LORD will turn from his fierce anger and be merciful to you. He will have compassion on you and make you a great nation, just as he solemnly promised your ancestors. “The LORD your God will be merciful only if you obey him and keep all the commands I am giving you today, doing what is pleasing to him.” (Deuteronomy 13:13-19 NLT)
Obviously the freemen have their own interpretation of life and free will. The view “Protect life…. until it’s born.”
361,420 souls live in Wichita. 361,419 now. In a city so small, It would be difficult to believe that Dr. Tiller was working 9-5 as a baby killer. He was a gynecologist who offered late term abortions. Late term (according to the laws of the land) usually means anything after the 16th-18th week of gestation. Because of the awesomeness of American Health care, lots of socio-economically downtrodden women don’t discover that they themselves have health issues precluding a safe pregnancy. Still others find out too late that they are carrying a fetus with severe malformations and defects. Surprisingly A lot of fat women don’t realize they’re pregnant until two or three periods disappear.
If you don’t agree with abortion that’s fine. but don’t shoot people, especially in their church. I don’t understand the militant white guys- If China didn’t have legalized abortion for the last 30 years, you’d probably be speaking a lot more Chinese than you do now. Operation Rescue, Bill O’Reilly and anyone else who brews up larger than life hatred for these doctors should be called out for their part in the debacle.
This is not the first time someone went after Dr. Tiller. in 1993, Shelley Shannon shot Tiller in the arms. At the trial Shannon defended herself with the holier than thou argument that the jury never bought. Within an hour she was convicted. Recently Shelley filed a lawsuit contending that the sewage system in the Kansas state prison was inadequate, and that sewage backups created unhealthy conditions for the inmates. Her lawsuit was dismissed. I contend that zealous people with guns taking the law into their own hands make for an unhealthy world.
