After the murder of Dr. Tiller, the abortion doctor, Randall Terry, the founder of Operation Rescue, issued a press release in which he stated:
Dr. Tiller was a mass murderer.
I grieve for him that he did not have an opportunity to properly prepare his soul to face his Maker. Unless some miracle happened, he left this life with his hands drenched with the innocent blood of tens of thousands of babies that he murdered. Surely there will be a dreadful accounting for what he has done.
I believe George Tiller was one of the most evil men on the planet; every bit as vile as the Nazi war criminals who were hunted down, tried, and sentenced after they participated in the 'legal' murder of the Jews that fell into their hands.
I didn’t include the part afterwards where he said that Tiller should have had a trial, but that doesn’t dilute the point. In fact, calling for a “trial” is silly because our nation’s highest court, rightly or wrongly, has held that Tiller’s actions are constitutionally protected.
If you call a guy a mass murderer, as evil as a Nazi, it’s completely forseeable that some angry loser Christian would take matters into his own hands and give the guy the justice that the liberal-controlled legal system refuses to administer. Among some people, the death penalty is considered an appropriate punishment for mass murder.
Yes, people within the anti-abortion movement who publicly called this guy a murderer share some responsibility for his murder. And the smug press release by Terry in which he clearly implies that Tiller got what he deserved is outrageous, equivalent to the Muslims who celebrated on 9/11.
In fact, Tiller was not a mass murderer because murder is by definition an unlawful killing, and Tiller was doing nothing illegal. He is no more a murderer than an army officer serving in Iraq. Yes, there are left wing types who would call the army officer a murderer, but they are just as much scumbags as people like Randall Terry.
In addition to killing this poor doctor, the anti-abortion movement is killing conservatism. When they succeed in turning the Republican Party into a single-issue anti-abortion party, who’s going to stand up against the liberals who want to remake our society into a socialist state dedicated to Gaia worship and HBD-denialism?
The anti-abortion movement is also destroying family values, because they are glorifying single motherhood out of fear that properly stigmatizing single motherhood would cause some women to have an abortion in order to avoid it. Thanks to the anti-abortion movement, single motherhood will probably become the norm outside of the upper middle class.
