In my ongoing effort to reach across the aisle, I've acquired some radically pro-abortion facebook friends. The following image speaks for itself.
Scott Roeder's murder of Tiller was immoral, horrific, and every other negative adjective you can think of. It also probably set the pro-life movement back years; had Roeder ever bothered to talk to anyone in the mainstream pro-life movement, he would have realized that we were close to getting Tiller's medical license revoked through peaceful, legal means.
But this shouldn't stop us from acknowledging the truth: Tiller was no hero. Not only was he an abortionist, but his medical negligence killed a young woman who had Down Syndrome. In 1989, he deliberately hit a peaceful pro-life demonstrator with his car (for which he was charged with felony assault). Comparing George Tiller to the real heroes who have defended our country is disgusting.
