I am shocked and outraged by the murder of Dr. George Tiller as he attended church services this morning. However profound our differences as Americans over difficult issues such as abortion, they cannot be resolved by heinous acts of violence.

    The murder of Mr. Tiller was wrong. I grieve that this unsaved man exited this world without the Saviour. I do, however, wonder where Mr. Obama’s outcry is for the thousands of tiny, innocent babies that are even more heinously slaughtered each day in “clinics”. These babies suffer much more painful deaths than Tiller. Where’s the compassion?

    I believe all murder is wrong, including that of Dr. Tiller. However, we should not let it overshadow the tens of thousands of American babies that he murdered.

    Yes the murder of Dr Tiller was wrong. It is our role as Christians to protest against Abortion, witness & pray. Pray that Abortionists are brought to Repentance, otherwise God will judge them.
