Murder is murder
Those of us who are pro-life ought to denounce the killing of Dr. George Tiller. He was certainly engaged in awful business and I suspect that some will try to make political capital from his death, but it's not possible to promote respect for life in this instance by taking it. It was a reprehensible and cowardly act. If, as appears to be the case, the motive was revulsion at Tiller's late term abortion practice, the killer has dishonored and harmed the cause that he wished, in some twisted way, to serve.
