The assassination of Dr. George Tiller by a right-wing anti-abortion fanatic is both a personal tragedy and a savage attack on basic democratic rights. It has exposed the pathological state of political life in America and the absence of any commitment to democracy within the country’s ruling elite.
Dr. George Tiller, who wore a bulletproof vest at all times in public, was killed by one shot to the head outside his church on Sunday. He was the medical director of one of the few clinics in the country offering late-term abortions. Sixty-seven at the time of his death, he leaves behind his wife Jeanne, three daughters—two of them physicians—a son, and ten grandchildren.
A statement released by the family read, “George dedicated his life to providing women with high-quality health care despite frequent threats and violence. We ask that he be remembered as a good husband, father and grandfather and a dedicated servant on behalf of the rights of women everywhere.”
The alleged gunman, Scott Roeder, 51, appeared Wednesday in a Wichita, Kansas, courtroom via video from jail and was charged with one count of murder in connection with Dr. Tiller’s murder. He was also charged with aggravated assault for allegedly threatening two people who tried to stop him.
Roeder has a long record of anti-abortion fanaticism and connections to extreme-right and fascistic organizations. A former envelope factory worker, lately he was doing odd jobs.
He has been involved in the anti-tax Freemen movement as well as a group called One Supreme Court, which claimed its members were “sovereign citizens” not subject to federal and state laws.
Roeder was well known to the employees of Dr. Tiller’s Wichita clinic, where anti-abortion zealots appeared daily shouting “Killer Tiller!,” “Babies Killed Here!” and “Tiller’s Slaughter House!”
The anti-abortion hysteria personified by Scott Roeder and his murderous actions has been cultivated by a network of religious fanatics, right-wing media personalities, and leading figures within the Republican Party.
Following Dr. Tiller’s murder, Randall Terry, founder of the anti-abortion group Operation Rescue, described the doctor as a “mass murderer” and declared, “He reaped what he sowed.” He said Tiller would be remembered as “one of the villains of history.”
Bill O’Reilly of Fox News has ranted against Dr. Tiller dozens of times on his talk show, declaring him guilty of “Nazi stuff” and warning ominously that he would face “Judgment Day.”
O’Reilly defended his attacks on Tiller in the aftermath of the doctor’s murder. Dismissing his critics, he wrote, “Every single thing we said about Tiller was true.”
The services provided by the Women’s Health Care Services clinic where George Tiller was medical director are protected by law and have been upheld by the US Supreme Court.

Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen on Tuesday argued that banning abortion would be “very damaging” for the economy by reducing women’s ability to balance their careers and their families.
“I believe that eliminating the right of women to make decisions about when and whether to have children would have very damaging effects on the economy and would set women back decades,” she said in response to a question at a Senate Banking Committee hearing.
The disclosure of a draft Supreme Court decision that would overturn Roe v. Wade, the landmark case that guaranteed federal constitutional protections of abortion rights, has set off a firestorm across the country as people grapple with the possibility that terminating a pregnancy could become illegal in some states.
In her comments, Yellen said the 1973 ruling helped allow women to finish school and increase their earning potential, leading to higher participation in the workforce.
“Research also shows that it had a favorable impact on the well-being and earnings of children,” she said. “There are many research studies that have been done over the years looking at the economic impacts of access or lack thereof to abortion, and it makes clear that denying women access to abortion increases their odds of living in poverty or need for public assistance.”
Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.) later in the hearing pressed her on her answer, arguing that framing the issue of abortion around labor force participation “feels callous to me.”
“It means that children will grow up in poverty and do worse themselves,” Yellen responded. “This is not harsh. This is the truth.”
Scott said there was plenty of room to discuss child care, financial literacy and child tax credits to improve outcomes for American kids.
“I’ll just say that as a guy raised by a Black woman in abject poverty, I am thankful to be here as a United States senator,” he said.
On March 25, 2022, a driver for Curtis Bay Energy handed over medical waste boxes to activists who regularly protest outside a Washington, DC abortion center. In the hours following, the retrieved boxes were found to contain babies who had been brutally murdered by late-term abortionist Cesare Santangelo at his Surgi-Clinic in Washington, D.C.
On this episode, Mark speaks to AJ Hurley, Executive Director of Survivors of the Abortion Holocaust, who was called upon to document and film the remains. AJ tells the horrifying story of the retrieval and filming of the babies.

In another grisly twist, Curtis Bay Waste Services, which burns medical waste to generate electricity, is the company who turned over the aborted babies to the activists.

Live Action - Abortion rights are pro-choice men's rights. It's not really about what women want, and it has never been. Abortion is about men - pro-choice men.
So ladies, thank you for marching.
Marching for us.

Sen. Feinstein hot mic talking about Judge Amy Coney Barrett:
"She's been pro-life for a long time. So I suspect with her, it is deeply personal and comes with her religion."

Newest video from the frontlines featuring another pro-ABORTION student with a shocking turn-around. It’s only 90 seconds. You’ve got to see it to believe it!
This is just another day in the office for our team. This year, we’ve already had over 800 students confirm in person that they’ve changed their mind on ABORTION because of our outreach. Imagine the impact if everyone were doing what we do!
For those who want to start, here are three quick tips from the video:
1. Go to their turf. As the video begins, Morgan is walking home from school, but this normal activity is interrupted by something unusual: she meets Evangeline, a Created Equal team member, on the sidewalk. Had we invited students to come to us, who would’ve come? Pro-L ! F E students. Going to their turf enabled us to meet Morgan, who was pro-ABORTION.
2. Ask what they think about ABORTION. This is Evangeline’s first question—not, “Are you pro-L ! F E or pro-C H * I C E?” The labels aren’t that important. For example, many people identify as “pro-L ! F E” while thinking ABORTION is permissible if the baby has special needs. We must get beyond the labels to find out what really matters—whether people think ABORTION is moral or immoral.
3. Clarify their beliefs. Morgan initially says that a woman “should be allowed to do what she wants.” She doesn’t unpack what this means, so Evangeline does it for her. Hearing her own views rephrased and stripped of euphemism and pro-ABORTION rhetoric shocks Morgan. Seeing the horrifying reality of her own position prepares her to exchange it for a better one.

Coach Dave converses with one of Senator Brown's staff, Hofsa, who deals with immigration issues, and attempts to pose his questions; however, when he tries to get at the heart of things, he is countered with the tern "nuanced".
"Nuanced" is how someone wrestles with the cognitive dissonance that comes with providing a higher level of rights to foreigners than to natural born American citizens.
Everyone - let's be sure to properly frame the narrative: it's not about "abortion"; nor is it about "women's reproductive health", unless you can manage to convince me that babies are injuring their mothers from the womb, it's #INFANTICIDE
What are the "nuances" determining the limits of birthright citizenship versus the 14th Amendment?
I’ve wanted to verbalize this for over six months, ever since uncovering this...I’m hoping that this does the job.
There are no women stars in Hollywood; many of the so-called male stars are all FTMs created either by surgery, by hormones or a judicious application of both.
These same stars are the equivalent of the Replicants from Blade Runner, meant to shine for a finite time.
I believe that our entire entertainment industry is suffused with #ADRENOCHROME JUNKIES.
ADRENOCHROME is created by torturing a child and ingesting their blood, adrenal glands and subsequent excretions once the child has expired.
I am including all sports stars; politicians; it’s important to take in the idea that this is a multi-pronged attack upon We The People by a parasitical organism.
That parasite is called Hollywood, and it eats your children.
Stop feeding your children to Hollywood for cheap thrills.
