Operation Rescue’s work at Tiller’s successful; Roeder was wrong
Operation Rescue reports on something I strongly suspected all along — late term abortionist George Tiller was planning on retiring.
Here’s the story from OR:
Tiller’s planned retirement proves Operation Rescue’s work was successful. Roeder was wrong.
Wichita, KS – At a fundraising dinner held on May 26, 2010, abortionist LeRoy Carhart told attendees that his employer, George Tiller, was making plans to soon retire prior to his murder by Scott Roeder last year.
The information was reported on a feminist blog site by a woman who attended the event.
“Dr. Carhart confided that Tiller was slated to begin his retirement not long before his death,” the blogger wrote.
Operation Rescue stated publicly in a commentary published on Feb. 2, 2010, that we believed that Tiller may have been planning to retire rather than face the disgrace of being disciplined for illegal late-term abortions by the Kansas Board of Healing Arts, which had filed an 11-count petition against him that was pending at the time of his death.
“Carhart confirms that we were correct in concluding that Tiller was ready to retire,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “We had worked since 2002, through peaceful, legal avenues to expose the heinous nature of Tiller’s late-term abortion business, bring him to justice, and close his abortion clinic. The fact that Tiller was preparing to quit proves that our efforts were successful. Unfortunately, Tiller’s murder a year ago was a senseless and despicable act that wrongly took a life and denied the people justice under the law. If Roeder had not acted, Tiller would be retired today and his abortion clinic closed without violence. We were right. Roeder was as wrong as it gets.” Read the entire story.
