Update on Aftermath of Tiller Murder

As I predicted, Tiller is being called a "Martyr:"

The statements quoted in this article, quite frankly, border on sacriledge. It's one thing to be "personally opposed" but, for whatever reason, support legal abortion, or, a-la Clinton, want abortion to be "safe, legal, and rare," which is the standard, mainstream liberal line. But, for anyone, let alone clergy, to say or imply that abortion is a good thing, goes way beyond the pale.

It used to be, while liberals and conservatives differed on whether abortion should be legal, or whether Roe v. Wade was correctly decided, one thing we all could agree on was that we want to minimize the number of abortions. Liberals thought more social programs for single parents, and better adoption regulations, etc., were the way to do this; conservatives thought legislation limiting, regulating, or banning abortions was the best way to achieve this goal; while many others (Christian (small-d) democrats) thought a two-pronged approach incorporating both solutions would best reduce abortions. However, the goal was the same: reduce abortions. To lionize Tiller as a "Saint" and a "martyr" is just - incredible.
