Late-Term abortionist George Tiller was shot and killed in church yesterday morning. Tiller was one of a very few in the country who performed late-term abortions. He ran one of three clinics in the nation that aborted babies after the 22nd week.
A suspect is in custody and I'm sure we will learn more about him and his possible motives throughout the day today.
I and Faith and Freedom denounce this kind of murderous action. While our country is deeply divided on several social issues, abortion being one of them, violence is not acceptable under any circumstances.
We stand firmly against all abortion and work through proper, legal and peaceful means to reverse laws and practices that advance abortions, however, any violent act against another, regardless of their belief is unacceptable.
We pray for his family that they will find comfort and peace from Jesus Christ, the Prince of Peace and Son of God.
I would also pray that abortionist activists do not try to capitalize on this tragedy and silence anti-abortion views, particularly during the hearings on Sonia Sotomayor for the Supreme Court.
Reverend Patrick Mahony, a strong pro-life advocate said, "I'd hope they wouldn't try to broad-brush the entire pro-life movement as some sort of extremist movement because of what happened in Wichita. That's really important---don't use this personal loss for political gain."
May God help us.
