Abortionist Shot and Killed
I just got an email from Operation Rescue that George Tiller, aka Tiller the Killer, was shot and killed while going into his church this morning. Tiller operated an abortion clinic in Wichita, Kansas and was known for his late-term abortions. Now Tiller has met his maker.
I sincerely hope that this was not the work of a pro-life fanatic. But it probably is, someone driven by the lack of justice that he has seen in the case of Tiller. Just recently Tiller was acquitted of 19 charges of illegal practices at his late-term abortion clinic, the jury brought out their verdict in one hour. Justice in this world is one thing; justice in the next may be very different. While it is right to say God be merciful to his soul, I also trust that God is not only merciful but He is just.
One person will be convicted for this crime, but I believe that a large portion of the responsibility for it lies with those who failed to serve justice and continued to allow Tiller to behave as if he was above the law. If that court had brought down a just verdict, Tiller would be alive today; he might have been in jail, but he would be alive and his clinic would have ceased operation before this.
