I'll admit, my blood us boiling a bit right now, but I found out a few minutes ago that Dr. Tiller's murderer
may walk on a five year sentence based on essentially his religious beliefs. This offends me on so many levels, and I see it as giving favor towards one set of religious beliefs over another. I don't understand why this man is being permitted to present such a defense considering that in any other circumstances a confessed murderer would be treated as such.
Thing is, he's not just a murderer, he's a terrorist. Shooting doctors, bombing clinics, harassing their families, and posting personal information on internet hit lists is terrorism. This man isn't exercising his right to dissent, he's attempting to bully doctors out of helping women whose lives are in danger, or had to make a painful choice about a dieing fetus. These people are organized, they encourage these activities, and it's time to call a spade a spade.
