Alleged Killer of Late-Term Abortionist Has No Regrets

From The Christian Post

The man accused of killing George Tiller plans to tell the court that he was justified in shooting the prominent abortionist and says he has no regrets.

"Defending innocent life – that is what prompted me. It is pretty simple," 51-year-old Scott Roeder told The Associated Press in 30-minute phone interview.

And having heard that at least four women who had sought abortions changed their minds and chose to have their babies, Roeder made it clear that he would do it again.

"[E]ven if one changed her mind it would be worth it,” he told AP from jail. “No, I don't have any regrets."

Roeder is currently awaiting trial for the murder of Tiller, who was shot at point-blank during a church service in May. The Kansas City native has also been charged with two counts of aggravated assault for allegedly threatening two ushers who tried to stop him during the May 31 incident at Reformation Lutheran Church in Wichita.

I'm curious... what's your opinion on this?

I started to post a comment after the story and decided to see what the reaction would be from Christians and non-Christians alike.

Just as I see abortion as an unjustified killing (murder), the cold blooded murder of Tiller is not justifiable in a nation that has laws designed to protect its citizens (Even if I hate and detest the very act he was allowed to do under current law).

Vigilantism against abortion providers cannot be permitted just because we hate and detest the act of abortion.

Hearts must change before laws can change.

Hopefully that day is soon approaching with the advancing technology that allows women (and men) to *gasp* realize that the ‘thing’ they are removing from a uterus is indeed another human being worthy of Constitutional protection as a person.

Ok. I was just checking to see if you were defending his action. I'm glad to see that I was correct in thinking that you wouldn't.

Having said that, I don't see abortion being made illegal any time soon. (shrug)
