Wichita Kansas - Dr. George Tiller, one of the nation's few providers of late term abortions despite decades of protests and attacks, was shot and killed Sunday in a church where he was serving as an usher. The slaying of the 67-year-old doctor is "an unspeakable tragedy," his widow, four children and 10 grandchildren said in a statement.
So much for the sanctity of life, gentle readers. A demented murderer took it upon himself to gun down in cold blood a living, breathing man, 67 years old, in order to protest abortion. I think it is probably safe to say that Dr. Tiller's murderer has never been pregnant with a child he felt incapable of bearing and rearing. I also doubt that he has devoted his life to adopting and rearing great numbers of unwanted babies. But he decided, as did various other murderers-of-doctors before him, that it is perfectly okay to kill a mature adult, but it's a heinous sin to comply with the request of a woman to abort her fetus.

See, we've improved a whole bunch since Spain in the 1500s. No more Grand Inquisition and no more Autos de Fe ... all we have is a bunch of looney fetus worshipers with guns. I call that progress. (no I don't).

Two wrongs don't make a right. Isn't that what we were taught as children?

Murdering the doctor is definitely wrong ... so what's the other wrong that doesn't make it right?

Oh, I know what you are referring to - could it be: Wars in the name of nationalism? Waterboarding? Illicit drug cartels? Human slavery? Abject poverty? Sexism? Pedophilia? Holy wars? Ethnic cleansing?

Or, are you referring to the the personal choice and decision of a woman?
