Pro-life movement breeds terrorists

By now you've heard that Dr. George Tiller is dead. The latest word is they have a suspect in custody who is expected to be charged with the murder. The motive hasn't been established but no matter who Tiller's murderer turns out to be, it's clear that the anti-choice movement breeds this domestic terrorism. This sort of violence is encouraged by zealots and aided by irresponsible media commentators who make their living fueling their mindless outrage.

Worse yet, the early framing from the far right Xian wingosphere not so subtly implies the murder was justified because Dr. Tilley was courageous enough to perform late term abortions. So easy for the holier than thou crowd to excuse killing in the name of their God. But they betray their own faith. If God hadn't intended choice, then he wouldn't have allowed our brains to develop the option. And I'm pretty sure there was something in their Bible about "judge not, lest ye be judged."

Yes, Dr. Miller did terminate viable pregnancies, but the circumstances under which he did the procedures isn't as simple as the anti-choices would like us to believe. It's hard to read the story of someone who sought his services and not understand that sometimes it's the most merciful choice.

1 Judge not, that ye be not judged.
2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.


Of course the "movement" has their own literature explaining why this isn't true because their judgments are fair and reasonable.

Religion is no better than the bastards who practice it. Maybe it's a bit like the groupies who stalk celebrities and come to think they are them. These people think they are God.

I think maybe they just believe a little more strongly than, say, sane people. But who would Christ shoot?
