Things were never easy for Dr. George Tiller, a Kansas doctor who performed abortions (and was most controversial for legally performing late term abortions).
In 1985 right wing terrorists bombed his church.
In 1993, a right wing terrorist shot him in both arms.
Recently, Kansas Attorney General Phill Kline, a Choice opponent, launched an investigation into Tiller and tried him on 19 misdemeanor counts - every one of which he was acquitted of by a jury of his peers.
Today, Dr. Tiller's life was ended as he was going to his Wichita church.
A suspected right wing "pro-life" terrorist murdered Dr. Tiller and shot up the church. Authorities are still looking for him.
About a month ago, the Obama Administration caved to hysterical pressures from conservatives to withdraw a Department of Homeland Security report that warned:
And in fact, conservative opposition to recent attempts to amend existing hate crimes legislation (which would make it easier for investigators to tap into federal resources to catch Tiller's assassin) was to protect right wing extremist terrorists' right to murder people like Dr. Tiller.
At this moment, no organization has claimed credit for this murder and attack on a church.
This is "pro-life": a murdered doctor and a shot up church.
I imagine conservatives are already brewing a rhetorical cocktail of 3 parts blame the victim + 2 parts this is not terrorism + 1 part crazed, lone gunman + a dash of winking encouragement to other crazies to do the same thing as a way to explain this to their followers.
