In this fallen world, there is evil, and then there is evil to the Nth degree. Personally, I believe any abortionist falls at least into the first category. Women who have abortions are not evil; they are just deceived, thanks to the abortionist and his/her accomplices who get to see firsthand the lives they have destroyed all for the sake of the mighty dollar.
That being said, George Tiller personified evil to the Nth degree, and his accomplice, Health and Human Services Secretary and former Kansas Governor Kathleen Sebelius could be described as evil, as well. I've written numerous times about these two. (This is where I would love to resort to all the name-calling in the book, but I must refrain.)
Read what a Kansas man who closely followed the actions of Tiller and Sebelius has to say, via the American Thinker:
How The Media Have Mangled The Pro-Life Story
By Jack Cashill
"Compared to their coverage of George Tiller's rise and fall, the media treatment of the March [the 2009 March For Life] was a model of journalistic integrity. For the record, in May 2009, a man named Scott Roeder walked into the vestibule of Reformation Lutheran Church in Wichita, Kansas and shot and killed Tiller.
Cecile Richards, president of the Planned Parenthood Action Fund, called Tiller 'the epitome of high quality medical care underscored by deep compassion for his patients.' A Los Angeles Times editorial eulogized Tiller as 'gentle George, a mentor to so many doctors and a hero to so many patients.'
Major media reporting gave credence to the Tiller eulogists. Almost universally, the media claimed that whether one liked Tiller's practice or not, he was following Kansas law.
I knew otherwise. Living in Kansas City, I had been asked first by Kansans for Life and later by Focus on the Family to chronicle Tiller's thoroughgoing subversion of the rule of law. The truth was there for anyone to see.
For the six years that she governed the state, current Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius enabled Tiller to flout the state's tough abortion laws and get away with it. With Sebelius's help, Tiller turned this reddest of red states into the late-term abortion capital of the world.
On Tiller's web site, he boasted of having aborted 60,000-plus 'fetuses over 24 weeks.' In 2008, Tiller's last full year of operation, 98 percent of the late-term abortions performed in Kansas were performed on women from out of the state or out of the country.
Throughout Sebelius's tenure, the media refused to ask a basic question: Did Kansas become the world's abortion capital because it had uniquely liberal abortion laws? Or did it maintain this status because the governor was uniquely resistant to the law's enforcement? The answer was inarguably the latter.
In Kansas, an abortion can be performed on a baby capable of living outside the womb only if the pregnancy would cause the mother to die or suffer 'a severe and irreversible impairment to a major bodily function.' Tiller ignored the law.
As the Kansas state reports show, in the last ten years of Tiller's practice, not one single late term abortion was performed to save the life of the mother. This life-saving hokum was pure liberal media myth.
The reports also show that of the 192 late term abortions on healthy babies performed in 2008, none were performed for a legitimate 'medical emergency.' Every single late-term abortion where there was no fetal anomaly (and anomalies included twins and cleft palates) involved a temporary mental health diagnosis -- made, of course, by Tiller, who was no one's idea of a mental health expert.
These 'irreversible impairments' included anxiety about missing a prom, a rodeo, or even a rock concert.
To keep his practice alive, Tiller had learned to game the system. His money worked well enough until Republican Phill Kline was elected Kansas Attorney General in 2002 and attempted to enforce the law, which he had helped to write as a legislator.
Sebelius engineered the deal that kept Tiller in business. She persuaded Paul Morrison, the popular Republican district attorney of the state's most affluent county, to switch parties and run against Kline.
With Tiller's massive financial backing behind him -- some $1.2 million indirect dollars -- and the full-throated support of the local media, Morrison ousted the 'theocrat' Kline and killed the case that Kline had brought against Tiller.
In shooting Tiller, Roeder managed to alchemize the unholy dross of this corrupt late-term abortionist into martyr's gold. In the entirely apt words of Dan McLaughlin, 'Even before anything was known about Roeder, the left side of the blogosphere reacted to Dr. Tiller's murder as if it was Christmas morning and they just got a pony.'
The pro-life movement had a new poster boy."
Just for the record, I strongly oppose what Scott Roeder did when he chose to murder Tiller. For several years, I prayed daily that Tiller would be punished for the evil he had performed, but what I had in mind was a lengthy prison sentence. Nevertheless, I certainly do not mourn his death and am grateful that his brutal practice has been stopped.
God says in His Word, that He does not want any to perish without knowing Him, but in the case of Tiller, I am glad that he will spend eternity in the flames of hell for all the deaths he is responsible for on this earth. The Bible says we reap what we sow. Tiller is doing just that. Decisions have consequences, and he is experiencing them.
