Tiller and Life

The murder of late-term abortionist Dr. George Tiller by an assassin with a history of mental heath problems was certainly a horror; what is also a horror is that Dr. Tiller is being labeled a "hero" and a "martyr" for some noble cause. It has also been suggested that the pro-life movement, and pro-life groups, should be hunted down as domestic terror organizations. Then there is all the just plain weird logic, like this:
LeRoy Carhart, a Nebraska abortionist and the plaintiff in Gonzales v. Carhart, the 2007 U.S. Supreme Court case that upheld the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban, offered a description of late-term abortion, "It's very much a three day, four day, even five day procedure. And in our procedure, after the first day, the fetus is no longer alive. So it's really a miscarriage of a stillborn fetus."
Uh, sure. Carl Olson has the best response to this:
Yeah, right. And poisoning your boss's drink leads to a "preemptive involuntary heart failure", shoving your spouse over a cliff results in "inconvenient gravitationally-motivated brain function cessation," and firing an 8-gauge shotgun into the mailman's belly brings about an unfortunate case of "shell shock" (more accurately, "pellet shock" or "shot shock"). Empty, deadly words.
