I was shocked to learn about the death of late term abortionist George Tiller today. Good never comes out of evil and this was truly an evil act that has caused damage to everyone.
Having worked with couples who had their abortions performed by him when pressured because of a poor pre natal diagnosis, I was very familiar with his work. I was deeply saddened and trembled for him when I heard of his murder. I also tremble for this misguided man who murdered him.
Perhaps one of the
moms whose baby Tiller killed said it best when she heard of his murder..."This
was the first time I know someone who died who I am truly afraid
for..." In spite of the pain she was caused, she was truly concerned for his soul.
As of now, they do not know the motive behind the killing although of course, everyone is assuming it was a pro life person. These comments only do more injury to an already terrible situation. In truth, we know nothing yet and no truly pro life person would commit such an act of violence and disregard for human life. Every life is sacred in the eyes of God and His mercy is available to all.
We all, pro life and pro abortion,should condemn this action, we can also all join in pray for Tiller, his family, our nation and all those damaged by this horrific act.
Lord have mercy on us all!
