Gingi Edmonds Comments on the Death of George Tiller and Extends a Call to Pro-Life Consistency
OPINION, June 2 /Christian Newswire
/ -- Gingi Edmonds submits the following and is available for comment:
George Tiller personally killed more babies than America lost soldiers in Vietnam. Although he specialized in killing handicapped children, most of his tiny victims were late term, fully-formed, healthy, and viable outside the womb. He performed an average of roughly seven post-viable abortions per week and has admitted on tape to aborting babies a day before the mother's due date.
Murder is murder, and it is something that we pro-lifers inherently deplore. But I can't help but note - and my history is rusty so pardon me here - I'm trying to remember, did anyone mourn Lee Harvey Oswald when Jack Ruby gunned him down? Or better yet, did anyone mourn the deaths of Ted Bundy or Jeffrey Dahmer, or any other mass murderer for that matter?
Even according to the harebrained pro-choice life-at-viability reckoning, Tiller was indisputably a mass murderer who was executed in a fashion far more humane than the tens of thousands of children that he mutilated and left to die in cuddle session bassinets.
Instead of scrambling to feverishly denounce the pro-life community ("Anyone who thinks Tiller's death is in any way a positive thing is not a true pro-lifer"... huh?) we should be looking at a very serious fact: If every single pro-lifer who is currently falling all over themselves to publicly mourn the "loss" of this abortionist displayed just a fraction of that outrage over just ONE of the children Tiller murdered on a regular nine to five, Baby Killer Tiller would have been put out of business long ago and he would not be dead today.
Tiller's killer was truly "pro-choice". He believed in the idea that if a person's existence troubles you, you have the right to kill them. He also obviously felt that every abortionist should be a wanted abortionist. Is it not a personal decision? Everybody has an opinion... can't we all just get along? Find common ground, like Obama asked us to?
Tiller was killed by a pro-choice act. Pro-lifers do not agree with pro-choice acts, and we need make no apologies. Both men are guilty of bloodshed and this tragedy is a sad but all-too-real testament to the biblical truth: those who live by the sword, die by the sword.
