common ground

abortion doc killed in church.

Flashback to Obama's commencement address at Notre Dame on May 17th. Obama told the story of receiving a letter from a Christian doctor (Not to be redundantly repetitive here, but Christian = pro-life. Sad that this caveat is needed) concerned with the rhetoric from his campaign staff. He quoted this doctor as stating, "I do not ask at this point that you oppose abortion, only that you speak about this issue in fair-minded words."

Obama then goes on to say he wrote the doctor back and promised to "extend the same presumption of good faith... to those who may not think precisely like we do... that's when we discover at least the possibility of common ground."

His plea for "common ground" on abortion was ridiculous then, and it is ridiculous now. Let me demonstrate by taking a few more excerpts from this lame @$$ speech and swap out a few words and replace them with references to the murder of Doctor Mengele George Tiller:

"...That's when we begin to say, maybe we won't agree on abortion killing mass murderers, but we can still agree that this heart-wrenching decision for any woman isby this 51-year-old suspect was not made casually, it has both moral and spiritual dimensions.

So let us work together to reduce the number of women seeking abortions shootings of abortionist doctors, let's reduce unintended pregnancies church slayings. (Applause.)... Let's honor the conscience of those who (dis)agree with abortion killing this so-called doctor... (Applause.)... Each side will continue to make its case to the public with passion and conviction. But surely we can do so without reducing those with differing views to caricature."


Did that make you cringe? It was no more outrageous than his un"doctored" remarks.

Of course, HuffingGluePost readers wouldn't sink to caricature by impugning all pro-lifers for this lone gunman's actions, would they?

Leftwing whacko Comments:
* Let's compromise: Let's ban late term abortions and Republicans.

* We need to rally around this, leverage it to finally rid ourselves of the right wing.

* Do Republicans still think it's a good idea to have these whackos in the GOP?

* Note to self: Do not try to engage in intelligent dialog with the christian right.

* This is blatant act of domestic terrorism by the Christian Taliban.

* It is time to end the Religious Right and conservatives in general. They are hate-breeders one and all. When will we wake up to the dangers of allowing the Republican party to continue its existence?


Where do I stand? Right along side Randall Terry on this one:
Randall Terry, founder of Operation Rescue states, "George Tiller was a mass-murderer. We grieve for him that he did not have time to properly prepare his soul to face God. I am more concerned that the Obama Administration will use Tiller's killing to intimidate pro-lifers into surrendering our most effective rhetoric and actions. Abortion is still murder. And we still must call abortion by its proper name; murder.

"Those men and women who slaughter the unborn are murderers according to the Law of God. We must continue to expose them in our communities and peacefully protest them at their offices and homes, and yes, even their churches."
OBAMA: "...However profound our differences as Americans over difficult issues such as abortion, they cannot be resolved by heinous acts of violence."

What is ABORTION, mister president, if not heinous acts of violence?

I have always wondered this. If someone saw that a murderer was present and was planning on killing a whole crowd of people, we seem to have a moral obligation to stop the murderer, even if it meant killing him in a struggle. Then why is it not morally right to kill an abortionist, who, in all bluntness, is a mass murderer himself?

There really is no right with the murder of George Tiller, but he had to meet his God today, and I don't think he liked what God had to say to him.

Tiller's practice made us sick in KS, as well as those who are pro-life. I think the problem is people don't see an unborn baby as a person.

You'd think they were smarter than that. Even if you watch the 'educational' programs, every animal that is pregnant is pregnant with their offspring. Humans are the only ones who don't understand that. Either they are stupid or blind.

We need to keep up with the fight to stop abortions...all of them.

Thank you for this post.

OBAMA: "...However profound our differences as Americans over difficult issues such as abortion, they cannot be resolved by heinous acts of violence."

...He says this as if it isn't already obvious to everyone except the most derranged among us...as if there are pro-lifers everywhere who just might do the same thing at any moment...as if he is the only one standing between the pitchforks and the compassionate abortion providers...as if he is now vindicated in his attempt to portray conservatives as terrorists.

Never let a crisis go to waste.

Hi Ann, the analogy isn't a pure one. If you could go back in time and kill Hitler, AND this prevented 15 million deaths during WWII, then I'd say go for it. Rest assured, somebody will take Tiller's place and his murder will not have prevented even one abortion. It could well be that the pro-life movement suffers a setback here from this (see Right Klik's response).
Linda- Yes we do need to keep up the fight to stop abortions. Can we do it? YES WE CAN!
RK- Never let a crisis go to waste.
Excellent pull.

Pro-life is pro-life so we cannot murder to prevent murder. It goes against our beliefs and hurts our cause.

With this said, I lost no sleep last night knowing this man was murdered.

He is being made out to be a saint on the left for helping these poor women. He helped them by delivering their babies (they are viable babaies once he gets to them), cutting a hole in the base of their skull and sucking their brains out to kill them.

He was a monster.
