George Tiller's Right to Life

Yesterday, a Wichita man was gunned down in his church.  (Link to story here.) The murder, as all murders are, was a horrible act.

The fact that Dr. George Tiller was an abortion provider makes no difference in this tragedy.  This murder took away a person's right to life.  That is the same right that we in the Pro-Life movement stand to protect for every - yes, every - human being.  No matter who they are or what they do.

There is no justification, none, that could excuse yesterday's acts by a cowardly criminal.

I truly hope that Dr. Tiller is resting in peace and that God's grace has been shown to him.  The fact that I believe he acted wrongly in his lifetime does nothing to diminish my concern for his immortal soul.

Abortion must end.  But we who oppose it must never abandon morality to achieve that end.
