Good For eBay: Roeder FundRaisers Don’t Belong

Not shocking: eBay isn’t allowing supporters of crackpot assassin, Scott Roeder, to sell items to raise money for his defense. Somewhat shocking: Scott Roeder has supporters:

Online retailer EBay said Tuesday that it would block an auction planned to raise money for the man charged with killing Kansas abortion doctor George Tiller.

Supporters had said they wanted to raise money to pay for Scott Roeder’s defense. They planned to auction off items including an Army of God manual, an underground publication for antiabortion militants that describes ways to shut down clinics, including with bombings.

Also on the auction list was a prison cookbook compiled by Shelley Shannon, the Oregon woman who shot and wounded Tiller in 1993 and was later convicted in a series of abortion clinic arsons and bombings.

“Based on the details we know about the anticipated listings, we believe these would violate our policy regarding offensive material,” EBay said in a statement.

Suggestion for eBay: Pat yourselves on the back for not allowing these unbalanced loons to use your website to make money. Suggestion for the FBI: Get the information of everyone trying to help organize this auction and check them out.

Abortion is monstrous, but the solution to it isn’t assassinations and bombings. That kind of thinking is not only immoral; it’s also counterproductive and takes us farther away from stopping the deaths of children via abortion.
