Over the Weekend a notable late-term abortion practician was shot in a Lutheran church in Witchitaw, Kansas. The man has spent years performing thousands of these murders ofalmost fully developed babies because women rejected the children they were carrying and seaked an easy way out. While the murder of this man was wrong and I do not condone the actions of the gunman, his death does not come to me as tragic. This man has murdered so many innocent lives through some of the most heinous procedures someone could think up. Unfortunately, This issue will be brought up by the abortion crowd as an example of of the disregard the pro-life movement has for life.
We all remember the document released by the department of homeland security right around the time of the tax day tea parties. It warned that right wing extremists could stem from a category of people dedicated to single issues such as opposition to abortion or immigration. This killing will be used as another example of the potential radical nature of people who oppose abortion. Essentially you can say that all pro-life people will be considered guilty by the left over this one murder of a doctor who has murdered thousands of human beings, the most defenseless people in society. The right wing movement in general will be portrayed as provacative of violence against anyone who opposes them.
Many people try to characterize this person as a good, kind hearted and a beacon on the issue of women’s rights. They can attach anything they want to him but it cannot hide the fact that this man has murdered thousands of children. If he is such an advocate for womens rights then where was his compassion for the female babies he has killed. The bottom line is this is not out of compassion for anyone. This has been a moral issue that has been turned into a political issue. The fact is the many woman suffer incredible emotional distress following an abortion procedure some point down the line in life. Also, this procedure increases the risk of health problems in women because it involves the extreme interruption of the natural processes that a woman goes through during a pregnancy.
Political leaders will also use this incident as another excuse to push national gun-control legislation, a direct violation of our second ammendment rights. Gun restrictions has been an issue the left has been pushing for a very long time. It’s an easy one to convince people on because many get the impression that this will disarm our criminals. Unfortunately, the converse is true. These restrictions will disarm the public but it targets the wrong people. The streets will become a safe-haven for criminals. Law-abiding citizens will be defensless to armed criminals who will have access to guns on the black market – they are not interested in following the law so law will not stop them.
George Tiller’s murder was exactly what the left needed to scape goat the conservative movement once again and continue to push their agenda on gun control. We need to do what we can to distance ourselves from the gunman but remember that Tiller pushed forth an evil agenda that should not be overlooked. Many would make the arguement that perhaps this man deserved the death he was given. My stance as a Catholic is that the state of someone’s conscience is not for me to decide. As much as I have contempt for what this man has done, the killing of him was not justified and it reaffirms Janet Napoletano’s claim that pro-life people need to be ‘watched.’ It is our jobs to lead by example while continue to condemn the acts of murdering children – which is exactly what abortion is.
