The pro-life movement should be banned. The murder of Dr. George Tiller is a wake-up call that this is a group of fanatical and ignorant religious terrorists that has no place in a rational society.

Let's think this one through. I know such an exercise is difficult for those of you who are now celebrating, in your usual illiterate and misspelled fashion, on various Web forums that another abortion provider is dead but I'll take it step by step so you will not slack-jaw what I have written.

The first principle is that the anti-abortion movement is irrelevant. Its priorities are not even in the ballpark of reality, being so out in right field that the game is finished and the klieg lights were turned off hours ago. Religious conservatives and their attendant whack jobs obviously lost the memo about the downturn in the economy and the ecological threats to the planet. The situation is quite plain. There is not any reason to have children without a healthy economy and a healthy world. If pro-lifers would create a sound financial base and an Earth without pollution or climate change, then they can advocate for saving babies. However, as most anti-abortionists are rather microcephalic in their beliefs, any help for the economy and ecology or for the "pre-born" from that quarter is unlikely. Religious conservatives, because of their short God-sighted views, devolve and do not forward their communities toward better ends. Pro-lifers, as shown with Dr. Tiller's murder, have a limited and destructive not a holistic and constructive approach to modern problems.

The second principle is that the anti-abortion movement is tarnished with Dr. Tiller's murder. He had a life. He had a life that was brutally ended. Existence, according to the pro-life movement, is a continuum from embryo to old age that is sacred and should not be taken by human means. The homicide of Dr. George Tiller evidences that the pro-life movement is a lie; it is a fraud that a decent civilization should not tolerate.

It makes me wonder how long these folks would continue were "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you" done to them? How long would the "protesters" continue were epithets hurled at them as they went about their daily routines? Were death threats visited upon their home phones? Were they asked whether they would prefer to die by knife or bullet? I'm just wondering...
