in it for the money

By Diogenes (articles ) | Oct 25, 2007

Kansas pro-lifers succeeding in collecting the signatures on a petition forcing Sedgwick County to create a grand jury to investigate the case of Wichita's notorious abortionist George Tiller. Tiller claims the pro-lifer's action was brought in bad faith and wants the Kansas Supreme Court to halt the proceeding. The following paragraph provides an exceptionally fine specimen of Tiller's moral indignation:

In Tiller's petition to the Supreme Court, his attorneys argue that anti-abortion groups have a financial interest in his prosecution. Among other things, Tiller's petition says, abortion opponents sold bumper stickers saying, "Charge Tiller. It's the law." The same slogan has appeared on T-shirts abortion opponents have worn at rallies.

They must be rolling in it.

    Of course the good doctor can't consider anyone doing anything for a motive other than cold cash. My wife says a lot of folks will be really surprised when they face the last judgement. I think they may be shocked, but certainly not surprised.

    I wish I'd have thought of it first----I could use some extra cash. It does make me wonder though---how much money has Mr. Tiller reeled in?
