Abortion doctor George Tiller killed during church service

By Calvin Palmer

Late-term abortion doctor George Tiller was shot and killed this morning at a church in Wichita, Kansas.

The 67-year-old advocate for abortion rights was shot as he served as an usher during a morning service at Reformation Lutheran Church.

His attorney Dan Monnat said Tiller’s wife, Jeanne, was in the choir at the time of the shooting.

Capt Brent Allred said police were looking for a gunman who fled in a 1993 light blue Ford Taurus registered in Merriam.

Tiller’s clinic has repeatedly been the site of anti-abortion protests during the past 20 years.

A protester shot Tiller in both arms in 1993 and his clinic was the target for a bomb attack in 1985.

Anti-abortion group Operation Rescue issued a statement denouncing the shooting.

Tiller was the focus of an investigation started by former Kansas Attorney General Phill Kline, an abortion opponent.

Prosecutors had alleged that Tiller had gotten second opinions from a doctor who was essentially an employee of his. State law requires an independent second opinion. But a jury in March acquitted him of all 19 misdemeanor counts against him.

    Time for christianity to be crushed…Christian have become the dinosaurs of our time followed by muslims who are pond scum…if humans become extinct they will be to blame. Unbelievabel that in this day and age this tyoe of murdurous closed mindedness exists and we allow it.

    Please stop referring to this man as an “abortion doctor.” He was a doctor who performed abortions, inter. al.

    Thank you.

    How can an assumptive fanatical religious zealot justify violence within the proverbial sanctity of a church?

    Mormon’s fund political activities to destroy the ability of homosexuals to love one another through civil marriage, while they advocate the taking of multiple wives or child brides for themselves. The Roman Catholic Church prefers to protect sexually deviant conduct of its clergy over the innocence of youth and at the sacrifice of their souls for all eternity, and then to add insult to injury they promote the main designer of their harmful pedophilia policy to be pope. And now, we see the conduct of yet another self-righteous holier-than-thou member of the Christian Taliban.

    It seems we should pray for the soul of the shooter, just before our society performs a post-birth abortion on him.

    When will the self-proclaimed religious people recognize the hypocrisy of being against killing a fetus but in favor of capital punishment and war? For I fail to see any fine print following God’s sixth Commandment by which to justify its waver. Hence many shall find it justifiable to reject Jesus as the Son of God, for no such deity would allow man to desecrate His teachings or His church as man has done under the guise of religious faith or piety. Perhaps Jesus must be as false as the religions that profess to believe in Him on the one hand while creating martyrs of His enemies on the other.

    To further undermine Christianity, one need only endeavor to justify the conduct of the shooter. Perhaps man should abandon all organized religions in favor of God.

        You are so uninformed. There are many reasons for late term abortions besides convenience. Please, please educate yourself. I so feel for your ignorance.

    How fitting for someone that made a living off of murdering the defenseless.

    CNN is disgusting. Is there a medical specialty called “abortion doctor”? how does language like this lead to murders such as that of this brave physician this morning?

    Ever since the CNN reporter ’embedded’ in the US Iraq invasion force yelled “wheeeeee” for the cameras as we rolled thru the desert, the fascist right could not have enjoyed a finer ally. Sieg heil, cnn.

      yeah brave…in you eyes brave men beat women too, what a looser

      • Glen P

        In my eyes, inbred hillbillies spell loser as “looser.” If you can’t get those teeth fixed maybe you can at least learn to spell.

    Can’t say I’ll shed any tears. I am happy that no more children will be murdered in ghastly ways by his hand. Am praying for his eternal salvation….as bleak as it may seem to some.

    What a brave, brave man. My heart goes out to his family. Hope they lock up the nutcase that shot him for the rest of his life.

    Why is he going to church as he is a baby killer? What is he going to say to God?

    What a bunch of crap.
    Ignorant fools.
    Christianity is all a lie you idiots!
    More people have murdered and been murdered in the name of it than ANYTHING else.

      Zelda,

      Anything else? Yes, I have something. Ask yourself … am I ready to meet Jesus? Am I ready to be washed in the blood of the lamb? I can send you some literature or some really good bible verses that might thaw your cold heart. Believe me, if you would accept Jesus as your personal savior your life would get a lot better real quick. You would just naturally shed your lesbian lifestyle and demonic worship. It would not be so hard at all.

      Love in Jesus

    After reading my comment I can see where you would be offended…..for that I apologize.
    I am not a lesbian…….nor do I worship demons.And my heart is far from cold.
    Thank you for your kind offers.
    Again..I apologize for causing you any discomfort.

      Zelda,

      I seldom leave the compound and new to the internet so I am not so wise in worldly affairs. I assumed you were a lesbian and demon worshipper. You don’t sound like one at all now. I think I was wrong. I am sorry.

      Love in Jesus

    Dear Born Again,
    Thank you for your kind reply.
    Much happiness to you.
