Scott Roeder, the man who murdered Dr. George Tiller, says he has no regrets, though he believes that he didn't necessarily receive a fair trial because he wasn't allowed to raise the issue of abortion in his defense: The convicted killer of a Kansas abortion provider has little sympathy for the family of his victim, comparing them to the relatives of a hit man in a recording posted online. In his first public comments since his trial for the murder of Dr. George Tiller, Scott Roeder also criticized those who sought to keep the issue of abortion out of the proceedings altogether, saying it...

Earlier this week, the Center For Bio-Ethical Reform issued a press release condemning Randall Terry's reaction to the conviction of Scott Roeder for murdering Dr. George Tiller and for Terry's support for the use of violence against abortion providers. Terry immediately responded with a press release of his own making his standard claims that he does not support violence, but sees it as inevitable so long as abortion remains legal. Gregg Cunningham of the Center For Bio-Ethical Reform then responded with another press release in which he dared Terry to "sue us" if he thinks... MORE >

Considering that Scott Roeder admitted in court to killing Dr. George Tiller, it doesn't come as much of a surprise to find out it took the jury just over a half-hour to find him guilty of murder: A man who says he killed prominent Kansas abortion provider Dr. George Tiller to protect unborn children has been convicted of murdering the doctor. A jury deliberated for 37 minutes Friday before finding Scott Roeder (ROH'-dur) guilty of premeditated, first-degree murder. The 51-year-old Kansas City, Mo., man faces a mandatory sentence of life imprisonment with the possibility of parole after 25... MORE >

Standing trial for murdering Dr. George Tiller, Scott Roeder admits that bought a gun, took target practice, and shot Tiller in the head as he attended church last spring. But, Roeder insists, he was justified in doing so in order to stop Tiller from performing abortions and, in court today, admitted that Pat Robertson and his "700 Club" played a key role in his transformation into militant anti-choice activist: Roeder testified that he attended church with his family when he was younger, but did not consider himself religious until he had a conversion experience while...

I have to admit that I am having some trouble understanding just what Randall Terry's position is regarding acts of violence against reproductive health providers. When Dr. George Tiller was killed last year, Terry immediately weighed in, calling Tiller a "mass-murderer" who "reaped what he sowed" while simultaneously claiming that he did not advocate or support such acts of violence. But now that the trial of Scott Roeder is underway, Terry seems to have concluded that that actions taken were entirely justified: After three days of a relatively quiet... MORE >

Randall Terry and his activists announce that they are heading to Kansas today for the Scott Roeder trial and want to make it clear that while they are not calling Roeder a hero for allegedly killing Dr. George Tiller, they ... well ... still consider Roeder to be something of a hero: "We are not coming to condone or condemn Scott Roeder's actions. That decision will soon rest with the jury. However, there are those who want to pretend this trial has nothing to do with child-killing by abortion; that is a farce. It's like saying that the trials of Nat Turner and John Brown had nothing... MORE >

Shepard Smith condemns Pat Robertson. Sarah Palin: Woman of Joy. Joseph Farah continues his war against Wikipedia. The judge in Scott Roeder's trial is allowing him use the defense that he believed the slaying of George Tiller was justified in order to save unborn children. Phyllis Schlafly is heading to Utah to hold a fundraiser for U.S. Senate candidate Cherilyn Eagar. Finally, despite that fact that the ant-choice "personhood" effort has been rejected everywhere it has been put on the ballot, "personhood" is going to be the theme of the... MORE >
