There are two practical problems that I have with George Tiller becoming a very late term abortion victim.
Number one, my religion forbids purposeful, willful killing at any stage of development. If I were more tolerant of other beliefs, that murdering some humans is OK, maybe this method of causing Tiller’s retirement would not be a problem. But I haven’t developed this kind of respect for other people’s “choice” to kill.
Number two, Tiller has been deprived of his chance to repent. Reformed abortionists save not only themselves, but have also been observed to save lives of others after they repudiate the practice of killing humans prior to, during, and shortly after birth.
It appears from the outcry, that the leftists consider Tiller to be one of those rare humans whom they find far too valuable to be killed. There are not too many other murders which would incite such a negative response from them.
I note that the killings of abortionists ceased in the United States during the Bush terms. The last three killings were during the Clinton administration. Perhaps the feeling of hope that certain injustices could be ended by lawful means had quieted the urge for vengeance felt by some who have been damaged by abortion.
There is unfortunately a severe reduction in that hope since the government has become occupied by pro abortion extremists. In this circumstance, further violence coming from those who have lost their Faith, would not be a huge surprise.
Pro abortion leftists are the kind who blame religions for the failure of people to adhere to the religious precepts. Likewise, such irrational people will blame those who oppose killing, for the killing of Tiller. Count on this.
