An anti-abortion activist suspected in the death of Kansas doctor George Tiller told CNN on Tuesday the closing of Tiller's women's clinic is "a victory for all the unborn children."
Scott Roeder, 51, would not admit to CNN's Ted Rowlands that he killed Tiller, who was gunned down at his church May 31. But he said if he is convicted in Tiller's slaying, "the entire motive was the defense of the unborn."
Tiller's family said Tuesday the clinic he headed will permanently close, effective immediately, and they would issue no more statements. At the time Roeder was interviewed Tuesday, word of the permanent closure had not come out -- but when told the clinic had been shuttered since Tiller's death, he said, "Good."
Roeder said the closure would mean "no more slicing and dicing of the unborn child in the mother's womb and no more needles of poison into the baby's heart to stop the heart from beating, and no more partial-birth abortions."
Damn straight. That is what direct, effective, action against child murderers can accomplish. One more abortuary permanently closed. Scott Roeder saved tens of thousands of children from being murdered, which is more than any sidewalk-pounding anti-abortion "protester" ever did.
The allies didn't march outside Birkenau holding signs saying "no more Jew gassing" and they weren't terrorists, even when they broke German law and liberated the camps.
Too bad that most anti-abortion protesters put their own interests ahead of the childrens' when push really comes to shove.
Under rules planned for one chamber, guns would be allowed on the Assembly floor and in the Assembly viewing galleries, said sources who have been briefed on the plans. That would mean the public could bring guns into the viewing galleries but would still have to adhere to other existing rules, including one that bars the use of still cameras and video cameras.
