  • These are the vigilante types that believe that they are guilty of a crime (likely murder), since the unborn haven't done anything wrong. They don't feel bad for killing someone they call a murderer.

  • George Bush called himself prolife, yet saw no problem with murdering hundreds of thousands of Iraqi men, women, children and, I am sure, fetuses.

  • He's an extremist and it is sad that he will be a representation of all pro-lifers b/c his actions were so public.

  • I've always wondered the same thing. But then, isn't this the way of the extremist? To do whatever they must, harm whomever they must, to get their point of view across. I honestly believe that the majority of pro lifers would value this one man's life just as much as another's.

  • Dr. Tiller's face has been on wanted posters for years. The leaders of the anti-choice movement have been praying for someone demented enough to murder him. It is just icing on the cake for old Joe Schiedler and friends that it happened in a church - what irony.

  • As with most assassins it was probably more about him. He was likely narcissistic personality disorder.

  • How how insane. I am pro-choice and do actually respect friends with different views. As long as they do so without violence, harassment, or violating the law. I have no respect for cowards who choose to murder to make a point through intimidation. It won't work.
