Dr. Killer

George Tiller committed countless thousands of late term abortions during his 35 years specializing in the deplorable practice.

He rightfully earned the nickname "Dr. Killer" from anti abortion activists who put his numbers at approximately 70,000 abortions.

As has been heavily reported, Tiller was gunned down in a Wichita church this past Sunday and the crime has fueled an already contentious abortion debate.

We do not resolve our ideological differences in this country with violence; we are more evolved than that. Tiller's murder is unacceptable in America; his assassin must be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

But let us not forget that this was a man whose specialty was the same as his undoing: murder.

Over the past week I have read articles from the left honoring and emulating this morally depraved man. Some view him as a martyr, anointing him as a champion of women's rights.

Taking a life is the prerogative of our Creator; not of an ultra liberal abortion doctor from Kansas.

His murder, like all others, was shameful. Our society must not resolve our differences in such a manner.

But to think for one minute that I am going to lose a wink of sleep tonight over this man, or sympathize with his cause, is ludicrous.
