Pro-life Leader Condemns Killing of Abortionist Tiller

Monica Migliorino Miller, Ph.D., Director of Citizens for a Pro-life Society and nationally known pro-life activist leader, condemns the taking of abortionist George Tiller’s life as an unjust act of violence.
Press Release May 31 , 2009


It is certainly possible that even those who are unjust may be victims of injustice themselves,” Miller states in reaction to the Sunday, May 31, 2009 shooting of late-term abortionist George Tiller of Wichita, Kansas.

As an activist and as a theologian I understand that someone may have"" killed this abortionist in order to protect innocent human life—namely the unborn who were routinely exterminated in Tiller’s clinic—but such an action cannot be objectively justified. There are many non-violent ways to protect unborn children, short of taking the life of the abortionist—and those means must be used. Anyone who kills an abortionist fails to understand the nature of legalized abortion. The mothers who are abortion-minded need to be reached, they need to be persuaded and helped. This is the way babies are saved as well as by peaceful non-violent types of protest and non-violent acts of civil disobedience. In the wake of Tiller’s slaying, pro-lifers need to re-double their peaceful presence outside of abortion clinics in witness to the sanctity of life. This is the real pro-life movement.”

Tiller’s killing is an unjust act of violence-- but it would be wrong for Tiller, who attacked and killed the helpless unborn, to be perceived as a martyr. He’s not a martyr. He was simply an unjust man who has also very sadly died unjustly. I pray for his soul.”
