It would take a missile’s laser focus to cut through the confusion and conflict concerning the murder of late-term abortionist, Dr. George Tiller.
Shot down in his church while ushering on a Sunday, the crime was shocking. The pro-abortion lobby is rightly grieving the loss of a colleague while strangely expressing no remorse for his thousands of little victims. The pro-life community is struggling to find the balance between relief that his death is saving lives and revulsion at the means by which they have been saved.
Dr. LeRoy Carhart, Nebraska abortion doctor who regularly aided Tiller in Kansas with late-term abortions, manifested his confusion at a memorial service for Dr. Tiller at the National Cathedral in Washington: “I think there is absolutely no difference in putting a cross in front of a person’s home because of what race they belong to than there is putting a cross in front of our homes because we do abortions.” Note to Dr. Carhart: The Ku Klux Klan and the pro-life movement use the cross for polar opposite purposes; the former to threaten death to the living … the latter to honor the innocent dead.
“This is the equivalent of Martin Luther King being assassinated,” he added. Dr. Martin Luther King, the civil rights leader who abhorred violence, compared to a late term abortionist who perfects violence as a trade?
Dr. Carhart got emotional as he remembered his late-term partner, Dr. Tiller. One cannot blame him for the natural grief he must be experiencing, but we can take great issue with his use of the moment to perpetrate his twisted perspective.
“What I want to assure the press and reassure the women of America is that we will somehow, somewhere continue to provide abortions later in gestation.” Who exactly is assured by that statement? Who is comforted … happy … relieved? And what kind of man would spend his days dismembering live, kicking babies and delivering them part by part? What kind of man would assure women he will continue to perform the heinous act of stabbing a baby in the back of the head with scissors, suctioning its brains, crushing its skull as the lower body, already delivered, thrashes in pain, removing the head last so as to fool himself and the law into thinking it is not infanticide? What man is proud of that? What man lives and breathes that mission and what woman or member of the press applauds his assurance not to worry? It can happen to their baby or grandbaby in the future too?
