…Because labels are a poor substitute for thinking

Abortion Doctor Is Murdered. Yes Randall Terry, You ARE At Fault.

Posted by Bill Nance on May 31, 2009

I’m not a zealot on abortion in any sense of the word. I view abortion as at best, a conflict of rights, and sometimes, morally reprehensible.

But I also think the idea of giving a 6-week-old fetus co-equal rights with a woman who must spend the next 8 months pregnant and give birth to it is just silly. One person is here and has rights which cannot be argued. The other is at best, a potential human being.

At some point the choice becomes significantly more morally daunting. For me this is the third trimester. This is because a preemie born at seven months has a pretty good chance of survival, even without heroic life-saving measures. And let’s face it, if you haven’t been able to make up your mind after 6 months, asking you to wait another couple isn’t the end of the world.

There are exceptions to this.

1. The life or long-term health of the mother.  This is an inviolable rule. A potential human being does not have the right to kill, permanently sterilize or otherwise wreck the health of a person already here.

2. In the case where only late-term tests can tell about the viability/health of a fetus. For all you zealots out there arguing this point, Either show me your adopted Downs Syndrome, Autistic or Crohn’s disease children or STFU.  No one should be forced to go through with a pregnancy, usually a very much wanted one, when the child will be horribly disabled.

Enter the latest case of abortion doctor murders, Dr. George Tiller.

Tiller was gunned down in his church, in front of his wife today. No doubt in connection with his work as a physician who provides late-term abortions.

Perhaps Dr. Tiller was not a nice man. I don’t know. What I do know is that he operated within the law and was one of the few doctors in the country who performed late-term abortions. Something as I’ve already said I have mixed feelings about, but also something that in some cases is clearly a moral choice. -Unless you’re a religious fanatic like Randall Terry, Godfather of the nut-job organization Operation Rescue.

This organization has been calling doctors who perform abortions of any kind at any stage of development murderers for over 20 years.  Of course they never bother to mention in their disgusting literature that fetuses are spontaneously aborted (miscarried) in about 40% of all early pregnancies. Most women never even know they are pregnant when this happens. So their God is the biggest abortionist of all, but that doesn’t count I guess.

Here is Terry’s Statement on the murder of Doctor Tiller:

George Tiller was a mass-murderer. We grieve for him that he did not have time to properly prepare his soul to face God. I am more concerned that the Obama Administration will use Tiller’s killing to intimidate pro-lifers into surrendering our most effective rhetoric and actions. Abortion is still murder. And we still must call abortion by its proper name; murder.

Those men and women who slaughter the unborn are murderers according to the Law of God. We must continue to expose them in our communities and peacefully protest them at their offices and homes, and yes, even their churches.

When you repeatedly call someone a mass murderer and inject God into the mix, people will take you at your word. They will say to themselves: “Hey, this is a mass-murderer for Gosh sake!  Killing him will be saving thousands of lives!” And do the deed. Terry knows this very well. And he doesn’t even bother to express sorrow that the doctor was murdered. Merely that “We grieve for him that he did not have time to properly prepare his soul to face God.”

If you want to know why I’ve com to truly despise the right wing-crazies in this country, look not further than Terry’s statement. What a dirtbag. He’s an unindicted co-conspirator to multiple murders. We can’t prosecute his speech, but we can sure as Hell call it what it is: Incitement to murder.

    Sadly… I’m head strong pro-life and I agree with you. (about the murder… not views abortion ;-))

    I’m reading through blogs and on-line reports and it grieves my heats that people would say such things. “That church wasn’t a real church… letting in a butcher like Tiller”

    HORRIBLE!

    It’s not Christ like and it doesn’t accurately present the love of Jesus. The heart and judgment of God isn’t to kill off those who kill… that’s NOT in His character. That’s the whole reason Jesus came…. to offer mercy for our sins.

    Yes, thousands of babies dies in the hands of this man… but this man was murdered as well… justice was NOT brought today.

    As someone who spent a little over a year in seminary, I certainly agree that there’s nothing “Christlike” about murdering abortion doctors (Or anyone else, Jesus was a Pacifist of the first order).

    Thank you for the comment. We don’t have to agree, and as a matter of fact, it’s more interesting when we don’t. But on one thing we can agree. A man was brutally murdered today. And there’s nothing Christian about that, regardless of how you feel about what he did for a living.

    Terry is a terrorist. He incites violence and should be charged with hate speech and fomenting riot.

      I couldn’t disagree more strongly with this statement.

      1. Free Speech isn’t for people who’s speech I like, it’s for everyone. Since he hasn’t actually called for violence, he hasn’t crossed the line of inciting murder. Rhetorically, yes. Legally, no.
      2. The conception of “Hate Speech” being a prosecutable offense is the most disgusting thing imaginable to me. That’s passing a law on THOUGHT CRIME. Free speech is free speech. It may well be full of hate, but it’s your prerogative in a free society to be hateful. ACTS are prosecutable already. The motivation behind them should be meaningless. You aren’t any more dead because you were murdered by a white separatist trying to kill a Jew than if you are murdered by a random street thug.
