EBay Says No to Scott Roeder Benefit Auction
The Kansas City Star’s Judy L. Thomas reports that eBay has rejected an auction by anti-abortion extremists intended to raise money for Scott Roeder, the alleged murderer of Dr. George Tiller. The auction would have included items such as an Army of God manual, a “cookbook” compiled by a woman in prison for abortion clinic bombings, and signed drawings by Roeder.
An eBay auction planned by abortion opponents to raise money for the man accused of killing Wichita abortion doctor George Tiller will not be permitted, company officials said Tuesday.
“Based on the details we know about the anticipated listings, we believe these would violate our policy regarding offensive material,” the company said in a statement to The Kansas City Star. “EBay will not permit the items in question to be posted to the eBay site, and they will be removed if they are posted.”
Roeder’s psycho-fanatical fans are as unacquainted with the US Constitution and the meaning of the First Amendment as they are with simple human decency.
Those working on the fundraiser said banning the auction was a violation of their rights.
“They’re not only chilling the First Amendment of the Constitution, they’re raping the whole Constitution,” said Regina Dinwiddie, a Kansas City abortion opponent and friend of Roeder.
Apparently Dinwiddie and her posse are trying to get Roeder to plead “justifiable homicide” in the murder of of Dr. Tiller. Otherwise known as a “good luck with that” defense.
