George Tiller, Famed Late Term Abortionist, Murdered, Suspect Arrested

For those who haven’t seen this story yet today

George Tiller, the Wichita doctor who became a national lightning rod in the debate over abortion, was shot to death this morning as he walked into church services.

Tiller, 67, was shot just after 10 a.m. at Reformation Lutheran Church at 7601 E. 13th, where he was a member of the congregation. Witnesses and a police source confirmed Tiller was the victim.

A suspect in this morning’s fatal shooting of George Tiller is in custody in Johnson County.

Authorities have yet to release more information about the arrest in Gardner. Wichita police have scheduled a 4 p.m. news conference to discuss the case.

Of course, as usual, the typical leftists went off the reservation. Donald Douglas at American Power does a great job of tearing apart Excitable Andy, who had gone off on one of his (typical) Christianists rants even before any facts are in, as well as many other far left moonbats. He, and many others on the left, were also blaming Bill O’Reilly.

The Other McCain has quite a bit of information on the whole issue, as does Gateway Pundit, who was also the target of Excitable Chucky and his Lizard Zombies. Speaking of Excitable Chucky, what’s a little moonbattery between nuts (quicker then going over to the Democratic Underground for reactions, you know)

A disgusting statement from Operation Rescue’s Randall Terry: George Tiller was a Mass-Murderer, says Randall Terry — We Grieve That he Did Not Have Time to Properly Prepare his Soul to Face God.

Last time I checked, Tiller had killed thousands of babies, including with his ever-popular on the left “Late Term Abortion” procedure. I typically do not get involved in the whole abortion on demand issue except for two things, one of them being late term abortions (the other is parental notification.) I’m not sure if I would categorize Terry’s statement as “disgustion.” And, while I will personally pray for Tiller’s soul, he will have to settle with God, and, an interesting comment from Ace’s place to wrap it up

Someone just shot a Nazi guard manning the gas chamber at Aushwitz. I should feel bad about this ?

Update: Identity known

Although Wichita police declined to name the suspect, Johnson County sheriff identified him as Scott P. Roeder, according to The Associated Press.

And, ye olde President Obama chimes in

I am shocked and outraged by the murder of Dr. George Tiller as he attended church services this morning. However profound our differences as Americans over difficult issues such as abortion, they cannot be resolved by heinous acts of violence.

On one hand, Obama is correct. We cannot solve the abortion issue, or others, through murder. We are a Nation of Law, not a Nation of Men. On the other hand, Obama never seems to work up much shock and outrage at the murder of over 2 million babies every year, many of them during the 3rd trimester. I wonder why?

PS: I know I probably do not have to write this, but, keep the comments civil.

PPS: I’m closing the comments for tonight. Gotta get some sleep, massive migraine, and, worried that some of the crazies and potential fakers and instigators will leave nasty comments.

Comments opened back up for Monday.

Oops. Apparently, closing the comments then opening them up again got rid of the previous 20 comments. My apologies.
