The Domina in a Rage
There are some situations that stress the bounds of manners to their breaking point, and the murder of Dr. George Tiller is one of those situations. Tiller was one of the few doctors in the United States that will still perform late term abortions and therefore he drew the ire, and malice, of extremists on the other side of the issue. I understand that not everyone agrees with abortion and that some people who do think there should be limits on it. I am not one of those people, and yet, I respect their opinion as their own opinion.
My question for the murderer of Dr. Tiller is this--you believe abortion is murder and that murder is a sin, so why is it acceptable for you to MURDER another human because you don't agree with him? Do you not think that is a sin that you will go to hell for? Because you have indeed sinned again the God you claim to believe in and you are no better than Dr. Tiller even by your own standards. This has always mystified me, that a supposedly "pro-life" person could murder an abortion doctor--yes it is ironic, but even beyond that, do these people really not see the great hypocrisy involved in being for one life and taking another?
I believe Dr. Tiller did this nation a great service, a service that is quickly becoming unavailable to women because less and less doctors are performing late term abortion and even less are learning how to do the procedure. I fear for women in our country and the continuing restriction of our rights and I beg you, even if you are not pro-abortion, consider being pro-choice because even if you wouldn't have an abortion for yourself, surely you must understand the need to have the choice, nay the freedom, to our own bodies.
