Dr. Tiller was infamous for doing the very late term abortions, what are called partial birth abortion, although he escaped prosecution for them. I am more interested in whether the judge in the murder prosecution likely to follow will allow the accused to present the defense of 'defense of others'. And I am reminded of the blood shed by abolitionists in Kansas before the Civil War. Of course the violence there didn't solve the problem, but in retrospect, it seemed to portend the hyper-violence to follow.
It is of course axiomatic that any supporter of a group which calls itself pro-life and supports the non-existent right of the unborn to live should not be killing anyone. The left appears to be beating the right over the head with an un-representative act and the right appears to be condemning the act with some heartfelt fervor.
I wonder if repeated vigilante action against very late term abortionists wouldn't end the process right then and there. I hope we don't learn about what effect that would have, because that would mean more murders. Bad stuff all around.

I heard some really awful stuff on NPR this morning from Right to Lifers who were basically supporting Dr. Tiller's murder. I know they are in the minority but this was crazy stuff.
