Some fear Kan. ruling may spur abortion violence

Its possible that Mr. Roeder’s defense will be successful.  If anyone thinks this would be a Prolife victory they are doubly wrong.  First Roeder killed someone; you can’t get much less ProLife than that.  Second Roeder’s success at beating the system, though a pitiable limited success – he will likely spend the remainder of his life in jail – will prompt backlash of the worst kind against all true Prolife workers.  He has done no good thing here.

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — On a balmy Sunday morning, Scott Roeder got up from a pew at Reformation Lutheran Church at the start of services and walked to the foyer, where two ushers were chatting around a table. Wordlessly, he pressed the barrel of a .22-caliber handgun to the forehead of Dr. George Tiller, one of the ushers, and pulled the trigger.

As his premeditated, first-degree murder trial begins Wednesday, no one – not even Roeder himself – disputes that he killed one of the nation’s few late-term abortion providers.

But what had been expected to be an open-and-shut murder trial was upended Friday when a judge decided to let Roeder argue he should be convicted of voluntary manslaughter because he believed the May 31 slaying would save unborn children. Suddenly, the case has taken on a new significance that has galvanized both sides of the nation’s abortion debate.

    Hi there. Just found you site through Flylady. So great to see Catholics standing up for our Faith and for life. I’ll pray my Rosary for you tomorrow. Please remember to pray the St. Michael the Archangel prayer – very powerful against the evil spirits who lure so many lost souls through the abortion movement (aka culture of death)

    May God bless your efforts.
