A couple of items to follow up on, concerning the assassination of Dr George Tiller yesterday that I blogged about already.

First, Kansas authorities turned out not to be as lackadaisical in their apprehension of a suspect as I’d thought they might be. CNN reports they’ve taken someone into custody:

A 51-year-old man was in a Kansas jail Monday, charged with first-degree murder in the killing of a physician whose women’s clinic frequently took center stage in the debate over abortion, authorities said.

Hopefully they’ll prosecute him to the limit of the law. Given that this is the very same Kansas criminal-justice machine that prosecuted Dr Tiller on a charge trumped up by the religionazis, I won’t be convinced of their effectiveness until the conviction is handed down.

Second, while it’s true, as I said earlier, that most pro-life organizations are condemning this murder, at least one pro-lifer has not actually done so. And that’s Randall Terry, former (not current, as I’d said earlier) head of Operation Rescue. Rather than express his outrage over the killing, Terry took the time to vilify Dr Tiller one last time:

George Tiller was a mass-murderer. We grieve for him that he did not have time to properly prepare his soul to face God. I am more concerned that the Obama Administration will use Tiller’s killing to intimidate pro-lifers into surrendering our most effective rhetoric and actions. Abortion is still murder. And we still must call abortion by its proper name; murder.

What a class act that Randall Terry is, no? Did I not say, before, that Terry is “one of the most bellicose, determined and vehement religionazis in the country”? His own words only confirm this assessment!
