I thought we were past the killing of doctors who provide abortion services, but apparently not. Today, Dr. George Tiller was killed in Wichita, Kansas while he was at church serving as an usher, presumably because he provides abortion services. It looks like we stepped right back to 1988, when Dr. Barnett Slepian was murdered in Buffalo, New York, because he was an abortion doctor.
Sad. Very sad.
I can’t stand it when a person is so passionate about their particular issue that they step over the line and impinge on somebody’s (or everybody’s) world and demand that things be done their way. Killing a doctor because you’re against abortion is one the most extreme examples of it.
My prayers go out to the people around and about Dr. Tiller who are now suffering due to their loss.
My prayers also go out to the murderer, whoever he or she is. Not prayers of compassion or sympathy, but prayers of action. This person needs help, desperately. They already have a lot of problems coming their way, courtesy of the Law of Cause and Effect, whether they know it or not. I hope they are caught well before they murder another doctor and cause even more suffering for everyone else, and in the long run of eternity, themselves. I pray this person wakes up and realizes the consequences of their actions, and then turns themselves in peacefully.
