    As the anti abortion leaders call the late dr. a mass murderer and pure evil they claim it wasn’t our fault. Hypocrites and hate mongers all.

    I heard on the news that the shooter was unconnected to anti-abortion people.

    Read a few more news stories about it, Jethan.

    What may have confused you is that many of the mainstream anti-abortion groups are trying to distance themselves from him.

    With 38,000 “Christian” denominations- whose law is law? There were people put in Guantanamo who had less to do with fomenting terror, and attacks on people, than some of the “pro-life” folks already screaming out, while they say they don’t “really” condone what happened. Check out what Bill O’Reilly had to say about this doctor.

    What the heck does an Army recruiter have to do with a DOCTOR saving women’s lives?

    Who in the so-called the left-wing press has been denouncing our miltiary recruits as mass-murderers and demanding retribution, churchillwasright?

    How many comments on say, Democratic Underground have been praising the Little Rock killers as heroes and saying the victims got what was coming to them?

    I think we both know the answer, Neville…and THAT’S the difference!

    hate-mongering, fear-mongering, and demonizing people DOES have an effect and we’ve seen it again and again

    whatever you belief about abortions, Tiller operated within the law. Just heard O”Reilly say “others” called Tiller a baby murderer, as if he didn’t call Tiller a murderer repeatedly himself

    the right is now using this murder of a man during a church service as another chance to vent … O’Reilly’s piece tonight acknowledged the murder was wrong, then moved back to the usual ranting

    Tiller’s murder DOES matter, it is homicide

    Just another example of the fact that “pro-life” doesn’t mean pro-life at all.

    It just means “pro-fetal-life”.

    I’ll bet the murderer is convinced that this cold-blooded murder will guarantee him a place in heaven.

    Just like the 9/11 terrorists.

    O’Reilly has said he does not condone what was done to Dr. Tiller. I am pro-life and could not stand the man one bit but the man who cold blooded killed him is the same type murderer as he felt Dr. Tiller was. Only God has the right to punishment by death. I do not believe in Capital punishment either. Life is precious from conception until death. All Life, even terrible people have the right to life as God has given us. Only He has the right to take it away. I am sorry for the Tiller family who must be devastated. O”Reilly is not a hate monger. He stands up for children’s rights.

    When did Murtha say that? What was the context?

    Tony Snow has nothing do with this. And he was NOT murdered.

    The opinions of the extremist blogs DO matter It was such an extremist that gunned down Dr. Tiller.

    “O’Reilly has said he does not condone what was done to Dr. Tiller.”

    And yet O’Reilly has said, repeatedly went after Dr. Tiller. For example, O’Reilly has called Dr. Tiller as “operating a death mill”, having “blood on his hands”, that he was “executing babies about to be born”, that he was “guilty of Nazi stuff”, that he “destroys fetuses for just about any reason right up until the birth date for $5,000”, and the moral equivalent of Al Qaeda.

    “This is the kind of stuff that happened in Mao’s China, Hitler’s Germany, Stalin’s Soviet Union.” –Bill O’Reilly

    Yes. O’Reilly says he doesn’t condone the murder.

    To the extent of my knowledge… Operation Rescue, the Pro-life organization that he was supposedly connected to is all but defunct (their website is dead). I would also like to add that regardless of your religious opinion on the subject, Abortion is the result of racism. Initially the only people that were recommended abortions were minorities.

    This is not about Right vs. Left. It’s about Right vs. Wrong.

    Let each state decide. Each state is a separate entity joined together for the sake of defense. So, in essence, since they are sovereign, let each state choose whether to allow abortions or not and stop encouraging the “supreme” court to overrule them…

    jwlong: They do. But, passing laws against it are tough due to privacy laws and the Constitution (4th Amendment).

    churchillwasright: Again, what’s the context for these quotes? Who is “they”? Murtha didn’t just up and say this out of the blue, did he?

  13. Anthony 2816

    Anthony 2816 said, over 7 years ago

    Jwlong, I think at the present date our states are joined together for a lot more than just common defense.

    The problem with comparing Dr. Tiller’s work to that done in Nazi Germany is that many people believe that any attempt to stop Hitler’s regime would have been justified (including assassinating him).

    Use of such language (as well as the language of abortion as “murder”) does nothing productive for the debate. All it does is heighten rhetoric and encourage extremism.

    churchillwasright, isn’t there documented evidence of US troops on occasion killing noncombatants? From what you quote, that’s about all Murtha is saying. It’s clear he’s not calling all US troops murderers. We know that some are because they were court martialed and convicted (by the US military). Do you condemn Murtha for stating what’s reported by the military?
