Dr. George Tiller was gunned down this morning in his church. For those who don't know who he is, he is a late-term abortionist in Wichita who is nationally known for performing abortions that many other abortion doctors will not do. God has brought His judgment on him today, but woe to him by whom it came. Much like King Saul in the Old Testament and Gollum in Tolkien's Lord of the Rings, Tiller deserved death for the evil he committed. But just like those two, it wasn't for man to presume the right to avenge. So it is a sad day to see someone put themselves in the place of God, but a glorious day that at least a handful of babies will now not be gruesomely murdered just as they prepare to take their first breath.

Also, some pro-lifers are pointing out that this probably hurts the pro-life side at an inopportune time politically (with the Supreme Court nomination battle coming). That may well be true, but if the anti-abortion lobby truly wants to see babies saved, there should be some rejoicing (albeit muted due to the loss of Tiller's life, ESPECIALLY since it seems that Tiller never repented and faces a horrible eternity) on the part of the lives that will now be saved.
Deserves [death]! I dare say he does. Many that live deserve death. And some that die deserve life. Can you give it to them? Then do not be too eager to deal out death and judgment. For even the very wise cannot see all ends. - Gandalf
