Abortionist murdered in Church

[ To give you some idea of how cynical I’ve become of our “government” these days, I would not be surprised to learn that this assassination was intended to frame the “Christian right” in this country — and to further the Homeland Security Department’s allegations that those who oppose abortion are to be regarded as “terrorists.” No Christian I’ve ever met who is anti-abortion believes that violence is the way to deal with the abortion issue… (two wrongs don’t make a right). Whoever did this — either a “fall guy” for the gov’t or a misguided zealot — is certainly not doing the will of the Lord God…. It will be interesting to see how this plays itself out in the days to come. ]


Kan. abortion doc killed in church; suspect held

WICHITA, Kan. – 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.

Although Stolz refused to release the man’s name, Johnson County sheriff’s spokesman Tom Erickson identified the detained man as Scott Roeder. He has not been charged in the slaying and was expected to be taken to Wichita for questioning.

There was no immediate word of the motive Tiller’s assailant. But the doctor’s violent death was the latest in a string of shootings and bombings over two decades directed against abortion clinics, doctors and staff.
