The People vs. George Tiller

By Diogenes (articles ) | Apr 06, 2006

A Kansas petition drive to begin a grand jury investigation into the post-abortion death of a mentally defective girl has collected seven thousand signatures, according to LifeNews. As we mentioned earlier, Christin Gilbert, a pregnant 19-year-old with Down Syndrome, suffered a botched abortion at Wichita's infamous Women's Health Care Services and suffered even worse post-op care, resulting in her death. The clinic staff's phone call to 911 is an unsurpassably fine illustration of the concern for the well-being of women displayed by the abortion industry.

Let's hope the petitioners get some action.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    As awful as this death was, other horrors happening in our culture are worse. On March 3-5 in Beaumont, TX, Dr. Eric Pianka gave a talk to the Texas Academy of Science in which he advocated elimination of 90% of the human race by airborne Ebola, and got a rousing ovation. Videotaping of his talk was censored. Check it out: http://www.sas.org/tcs/weeklyIssues_2006/2006-04-07/feature1p/index.html Wachet auf!

    Dr Tiller is a willing tool of absolute evil and must be stopped.

    New development! Go to www.operationrescue.org. Apparently Tiller tried to run over (with his car) a pro-lifer.

    This is Margaret Sanger's (sp?) philosophy in action. She, if you recall, is founder of Planned Parenthood and (this is true!) supportered of Hitler's euthanising mental patients. The Abort Clinic did what they thought was a service to her family, get rid of the disabled child and their grandchild. Now the parents can rest easy. They do not have to worry about caring for her when they are old. "Family members decided to perform comfort care only." Are there any good people here?

    Cardinal Mahony will lead a nationwide campaign to chain himself to the clinic until Justice is done. Its all about the children. We anxiously await the USCCB directive.

    It's a heartbreak AND a scandal.
