USA Today blamed pro-lifers for the unjust killing of abortionist George Tiller
because they have the audacity to use the word murder in reference to the
killing of unborn children. If this is true, then media like USA Today are
guilty of the deaths of millions of unborn children for failing to call abortion
murder! You bear responsibility for violence.
Indeed, USA Today might have prevented the murder of Tiller by exposing the
truth about abortion and editorializing against the legalized killing of the
Your June 3rd editorial actually stated that Tiller was not guilty of murder
himself because, unlike his assailant, he acted within the law. With such logic
one could conclude that so long as the direct killing of human beings is legal
it is not morally unjust and ought not be opposed.
Your publication supports legalized abortion and thus contributes to the killing
of unborn children. But you may also have contributed to the murder of Tiller.
You praised a man of violence, excused his late-term abortions, and supported
his abortion services. Perhaps you could have saved his life by instead telling
him the truth and calling him to responsibility. This may have led him out of
the tragic and violent practice of abortion—a practice which sadly led to his
own horrible and unjust death.
