Abortionist George Tiller murdered while at church, pro-life groups denounce the violence

I’ve not been posting on weekends, but I came online today to the terrible news that abortionist George Tiller was murdered in a church this morning (via Danielle Bean):

Attorney Dan Monnat said Tiller, one of the nation’s most visible and strident advocates for abortion rights, was shot as he served as an usher during morning services at Reformation Lutheran Church. Monnat said Tiller’s wife, Jeanne, was in the choir at the time of the shooting.

Pro-life groups have been quick to denounce the violence (via Patrice Egging). It should be a no-brainer — murdering someone does not help those of us opposed to killing. It’s a profound contradiction to kill in the name of life.

For the latest reactions, this is now a trending topic on Twitter.
