George Tiller, Abortion Provider, Shot Dead in Church

Dr. George Tiller, a provider of second trimester abortions, was shot and killed inside the lobby of his Wichita, Kansas church, reports AFP and other media outlets. There are only three abortion providers who will do late term abortions and now there are only two. George Tiller, 67, was shot dead as he was walking into the Reformation Lutheran Church on the east side of town around 10 am this morning. George Tiller was pronounced dead at the scene. He is the fifth abortion provider to be murdered or maimed in the U.S. by those who love God and hold all life to be sacred.

It is worthy of note that Dr Tiller was persecuted and made to defend himself in court before his murder by the very legal system that ignored the threats on his life and left him unprotected from the frenzy the right wing prosecutor whipped up against him. This was a political witch hunt - a burning, and resulted in Tiller's death for which the prosecutor and his right wing supporters are morally responsible.

Tiller was exercising his legal right to preform abortions and like all the tolerated harassment of unnecessary delays, unscientific lectures, shouts and slurs, here the court lent itself to legal harassment with the purpose of destroying a citizen who offended the politics of a prosecutor making a career out of serving the religious right by attacking those who served the poor and disenfranchised. But a jury of citizens found him not guilty. Yet, there are no civil rights laws which allowed Tiller or his family to recoup his attorney fees and costs. The prosecutor knew there was no precedent for his criminal charges but there is no legal way to stop him and others like him. Thus, women's rights are under constant attack in a sexist society.

Tiller was the victim of violence before. On June 9, 1986 someone detonated a homemade bomb on the roof of his Wichita clinic. No one was hurt except for being terrorized. During the Summer of Mercy in 1991, protesters blocked the entrance to his facility before a federal judge ruled the protesters be arrested. Two years later, Dr. Tiller was shot outside his clinic the evening of August 19, 1993. His wounds were not life threatening. Abortion opponent Shelly Shannon was convicted of that shooting and sentenced to prison.
What more do you need to know these religious hypocrites are nothing more than misogynists who have no respect for women or human rights o??.
Every time you hear these fetus worshippers bleating about the sanctity of life, remember George Tiller. Remember a hero who gave his life for women and our freedom from slavery. Thank You Dr Tiller.

You must review the post at: Violence & Harassment at U.S. Abortion Clinics because murder is not all these people do - the danger providers live with daily is reflected in the amount of bombing detonated at the clinics. Which brings me to the point of this post. Homeland Security published,
Rightwing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano included only a footnote attached to the report wherein right wing extremism in the United States" is defined as including not just racist or hate groups, but also groups that reject federal authority in favor of state or local authority. "It may include groups and individuals that are dedicated to a single-issue, such as opposition to abortion or immigration," the warning says.
First of all, MAY??? With the list of bombings and murders??? MAY INCLUDE??
Second, illegal immigration opponents, open border opponents, out and in sourcing opponents, fair trade advocates, animal rights groups and environmentalist activists have been specifically named, targeted and infiltrated by FBI undercover agents and not one of those groups has ever killed a human being. There has been some property damage to vacant facilities but not by animal rights groups which just free tortured animals. The full force of the government has been brought in prosecuting these groups under a bill written by the animal exploiters.
Yet, here is another murder by an abortion clinic terrorist who had been stopped previously with explosives in the back seat of his car.

I guess Napolitano's politics determine that fantasy immigration and animal rights terrorists must be prosecuted rather than those that kill and maim. Stopping illegal immigration is termed terrorism by those who want to use it to create a political base for the democratic party. But a woman's right to choose?

BO is too delicate to ask that question of his supreme court nominees.

We have right to know if this president is committed to women’s rights or just open borders, by testing his nominee's response to specific questions about the incremental challenges to Roe v Wade which limit its' application to poor, military and global women.
We want to assess her tolerance for limits to our right to control our bodies by unnecessary and anti scientific restrictions which limit the free access to abortion, the morning after pill and birth control by catholic hospitals and pharmacists.
How coy were BO's reassurances — he never asked, he says. Are we to admire his sensitivity and be shamed into also not asking?

The Supreme Court has ruled in REPUBLICAN PARTY OF MINNESOTA, et al., PETITIONERS v. SUZANNE WHITE, CHAIRPERSON, MINNESOTA BOARD OF JUDICIAL STANDARDS, et al, that we DO have the RIGHT to such info from judicial candidates - not specifically how they will rule in the future but if they agree or disagree that the reasoning is correct in prior decisions.
So there is no reason for BO not asking Sotomayor her position on Roe v Wade AND subsequent decisions. Except that he doesn’t want us to know.

Last, how many male respectables go over the line in the media to incite violence against Abortion providers. I feel Bill O'Reilly does. I like the way O'Reilly defends children from pedophile loving judges so it pained me to hear him incite violence against Dr. Tiller and I heard it twice.

It was disgusting and if i were a relative of Tiller I would look into a lawsuit.
Salon article, O'Reilly's campaign against murdered doctor
The Fox News star had compared Tiller to a Nazi, called him a "baby killer," and warned of "Judgment Day"
He accussed Tiller of being a millionaire from killing babies for any reason as long as women had the money -but he didn't talk about his trillionaire church making billions off the baby trade in adoption and the his catholic church's pedophilia that feeds off unrestrained breeding. O'Reilly did not talk about right wing prosecutors who bled the doctor of legal fees. Reilly did not talk about a killer who never supported any of the fetuses he killed for his belief in life.
You can honor Dr Tiller by helping poor women obtain needed abortions AND defeat the women haters by donating to fund a woman's abortion.
In Wisconsin, poor women face major obstacles in order to terminate pregnancies. Many of these women already have too many children and various medical problems. YOU can help if you have any extra income. The Women's Medical Fund collects donations to pay one half of poor women's abortions. 100% of your donation will go to these women - their books are open. You can read about the women's stories on their website.
From Wikipedia
The Freedom of Choice Act (H.R. 1964/S. 1173) was a bill in the 110th United States Congress which "declares that it is the policy of the United States that every woman has the fundamental right to choose to bear a child; terminate a pregnancy prior to fetal viability; or terminate a pregnancy after viability when necessary to protect her life or her health.
It prohibits a federal, state, or local governmental entity from denying or interfering with a woman's right to exercise such choices; or discriminating against the exercise of those rights in the regulation or provision of benefits, facilities, services, or information. Provides that such prohibition shall apply retroactively.

It also authorizes an individual aggrieved by a violation of this Act to obtain appropriate relief, including relief against a governmental entity, in a civil action."[1]
Earlier versions of the bill were introduced in 1989 and 1993.[2]
The bill states in its findings section that Congress has the affirmative power to legislate abortion based, in part, on the crossing of state lines by abortion providers, women seeking abortions, and medical supplies used in abortions.[citation needed]

[edit] Sponsorship
The Freedom of Choice Act was sponsored in the House of Representatives by Congressman Jerrold Nadler, and originally co-sponsored by Congressman James Greenwood, Congresswoman Louise Slaughter, and Congresswoman Diana Degette. In the Senate, it was sponsored by Senator Barbara Boxer, and originally co-sponsored by Senators Jon Corzine, Patty Murray, Frank Lautenberg, Hillary Rodham Clinton, Maria Cantwell, Jim Jeffords, Joseph Lieberman, Dianne Feinstein, Paul Sarbanes, and Barbara Mikulski. The bill was introduced in the United States House of Representatives on January 21, 2004, and in the United States Senate on January 22, 2004.

[edit] Status
The bills were referred to the Judiciary Committees of the respective Houses. Neither bill received further action in the 108th Congress. The bills were reintroduced in the 110th Congress, but, like their predecessors, were referred to committee without further action. As of June 2009, the bills have not been introduced in the 111th Congress.

During his tenure in the United States Senate, Barack Obama co-sponsored the 2007 Senate version of the Freedom of Choice Act (S. 1173). Responding to a question regarding how he would preserve reproductive rights in a speech given to the Planned Parenthood Action Fund on July 17, 2007, Obama declared, "The first thing I'd do, as president, is sign the Freedom of Choice Act. That's the first thing that I'd do."[3]

In a press conference on April 29, 2009, President Obama said that although he supports a woman's right to choose, passage of the Freedom of Choice Act was "not highest legislative priority."[4]

[edit] Description
The bill is described by NARAL Pro-Choice America president Nancy Keenan as a bill to "codify Roe v. Wade" which would "repeal the Bush-backed Federal Abortion Ban," referring to the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act, "and other federal restrictions".[5] Opponents of FOCA assert that it would, if passed, invalidate every restriction on abortion nationwide, including parental notification laws, informed consent laws, and bans on partial birth abortion.[6] In the 50 American states, there are currently over 300 such laws.[citation needed]

We know that Barack Obama has very little concern for women except for his perfunctory remarks, which can only placate third wave Pretend Feminists who never fought for a single right they now take for granted. I do find it very odd that no one, not even the glorious Ms. Gandy and not even NARAL has demanded to know Judge Sotomayor's thoughts on abortion. I would find it doubly odd if no one in congress demands an answer. Odd, but not surprising, as it is clear to me that Barack Obama would be more than happy to set American women back 50 years and keep us there in preparation for Sharia. What better way to begin than to keep women pregnant, poor and in dire need of men to help them out.

Welcome and Hi

I am still burning from his so called women under sharia speech today. He had the gall to say "if they WANT to wear the slave clothes" as if they have any real choice; as if we should accept slavery because some beaten down individuals are too intimidated to be able to function after a life of horrendous abuse. Because some western women want to act like fools on some college campuses and because some masochists are subjecting their children to their twisted drives, BO implies that if they really ad the choice to be free, women would freely choose to be slaves. In th US I agree the Chesler commenter who posted the following:

"4. Dr. Bukk:
All Western countries should ban the covering of the face. Arrest any woman immediately and make her family bail her out.

Do not let women enter commercial buildings with the face covered. The radicals will soon leave the country, as they have done in Tunisia.

If Muslims want to enjoy the fruits of Western life then they should be forced to uncover the faces of their women.

Controlling women is so important to the culture this will drive them home and good riddance! Men can disguise themselves in burqas.

It is not right to be unable to determine the gender of someone. Banks do not allow masked customers, and neither should any business."

I posted some photos of women being shot in the head in Afghanistan. Those women had the right to wear the hijab as they got murdered.

We are expected to respect their culture when we visit there. Witness, Hillary in scarf outside the mosque in Egypt. But here, our culture is to be ignored.

Obama's references to women's rights was a complete disgrace and only serves to remind me they he has no respect for us. None whatsoever.

PRUDEN: 'Inner Muslim' at work in Cairo
By Wesley Pruden

... He enumerated the "sources of tension" between Islamic countries and the West and never mentioned terrorism. He chided the West for its harsh view of Islamic treatment of women - "I reject the view of some in the West that a woman who chooses to cover her hair is somehow less equal" - and suggested that denying education to women is the gravest Muslim sin against women. He could have denounced "honor killings," forced marriages and how women in Muslim countries are flogged on the pretext of minuscule violations of eighth-century Sharia law.

But it was more fun to fish for applause by berating America and throwing rocks at Israel. "Let there be no doubt: The situation for the Palestinian people is intolerable. America will not turn our backs on the legitimate Palestinian aspiration for dignity, opportunity and a state of their own." Israel, he said, must "live up to its obligations," but he had hardly a word of rebuke for the long record of broken Palestinian promises. It was a remarkable insult to an absent ally, delivered to the applause of Israel's sworn enemies.

Mr. Obama's revelation of his "inner Muslim" in Cairo reveals much about who he is. He is our first president without an instinctive appreciation of the culture, history, tradition, common law and literature whence America sprang.

But here in this post is a brave man who was spit on his whole life for standing for women while the Obama types are worshiped by women and Hillary covers her head like a complete traitor to women.
