George Tiller: US abortionist's killer may have links to anti-abortion group
It was not the intention to do two abortion related posts back to back but late term abortionist George Tiller was shot and killed while ushering at his church in the weekend. He was America's most well-known abortionist.
The suspect, Scott Roeder, 51, may have links to Operation Rescue, a conservative US group opposed to abortion. In fact Tiller has been shot before, outside his abortion clinic by Shelley Shannon, who was later jailed. Roeder visited her in prison. You can read more about that here.
The Operation Rescue website is down at the moment , but here's the cache which has this entry:
Scott Roeder Says:Being pro-life and killing someone to prove your point is hardly the way to go, is it.

Bleass everyone for attending and praying in May to bring justice to Tiller and the closing of his death camp.
Sometime soon, would it be feasible to organize as many people as possible to attend Tillers church (inside, not just outside) to have much more of a presence and possibly ask questions of the Pastor, Deacons, Elders and members while there? Doesn’t seem like it would hurt anything but bring more attention to Tiller.
