Abortion Terrorist Murderer Scheduled for Disciplinary Hearing Over Youtube Video
At issue in the prison proceeding is a recorded jailhouse phone call that Dave Leach, an abortion opponent from Des Moines, Iowa, posted on YouTube in April. In it, Leach is heard saying that if someone shot the new abortion provider like Roeder shot Tiller, it would be “a blessing to the babies.” He called reopening the clinic where Tiller practiced “a gauntlet thrown down, by someone who wants a fight.”
Roeder laughed and agreed with Leach, calling the clinic’s reopening “death-defying.”
“To walk in there and reopen a clinic, a murder mill where a man was stopped, it’s almost like putting a target on your back - saying, ‘Well, let’s see if you can shoot me,’ ” Roeder said on the recording.
Julie Burkhart, executive director of the abortion rights group Trust Women, opened in April Wichita’s first abortion clinic since Tiller’s slaying nearly four years earlier. The South Wind Women’s Center provides abortions and other medical services in the old building that once housed Tiller’s clinic.
