Anti-Abortion Group Claims Scott Roeder is ‘Not One of Us’

lifenews.com is trying like crazy to distance themselves from Scott Roeder, the anti-abortion nutjob suspected of killing Dr. George Tiller; look at how they distort the truth in this article: Suspected George Tiller Shooter Scott Roeder Won’t be Charged Today in Killing.

Washington, DC (lifenews.com) — Local authorities are not expected to file charges today against Kansas resident Scott Roeder in connection with the shooting death of late-term abortion practitioner George Tiller. Roeder is suspected of killing Tiller Sunday morning at his church with a handgun.

Roeder, who has no connections with the pro-life movement but has ties with anti-government militia groups, is currently detained at Sedgwick County Jail on suspicion of murder and aggravated assault. …

Roeder, a 51-year-old white male, was arrested near the Gardner exit of Interstate 35 south of Kansas City hours after the shooting.

As has been the case with most previous incidents of abortion-related violence, Roeder appears to have an affiliation with extremist political groups but not with the mainstream pro-life movement.

It is true that Roeder had connections to extremist militia groups like the Freemen and the “sovereign citizen” movement.

But as we’ve shown here at LGF, Roeder also posted comments at anti-abortion websites, subscribed to anti-abortion magazines (including one that advocated the murder of doctors who perform abortions), and when he was arrested he had a Post-It note in his car containing the phone number of Operation Rescue. Exactly how do you qualify to have “connections to the pro-life” movement, if this doesn’t do it?

Note to anti-abortion groups: man up and take responsibility for Scott Roeder. He’s one of yours. Obviously, not everyone who belongs to a “pro-life” group will go to such extreme lengths as Scott Roeder apparently did, but it’s long past time for you folks to start dialing down the rhetoric and acting more responsibly — before anyone else is hurt or killed in a shooting or an abortion clinic bombing.

And if you don’t believe this is necessary, here’s a video created by Operation Rescue. The apparent purpose of the video: to encourage the murder of Dr. George Tiller. At one point, an onscreen message says: “Together We Can Put An End To George Tiller, Abortion and These Horrific Crimes”

WARNING! The video is appallingly gruesome. Don’t click the “play” button if you are squeamish or unprepared for what you’re going to see.
