Tiller Aborted

I would like to express my sadness at hearing of the violent death of Dr. George Tiller, who was gunned down at his church. In my ideal United States, abortion would be illegal and Dr. Tiller would have had a life sentence in prison to hopefully come to repentence for his atrocious acts against so many unborn children and their mothers. Someone has taken the opportunity for conversion from him. I hear of the story of Dr. Bernard Nathanson, who aborted over 100,000 children and is now a faithful Catholic and i know God can work miracles in the most hardened of sinners. Let us pray and make heroic sacrifices for proponents of the Culture of Death, especially our president, and let us renew our efforts to lovingly evangelize those who don't understand the gravity of abortion in all cases. Many of them simply don't get the inconsistency of their beliefs and just need to be asked some pointed questions. Plant seeds and water them with prayer. And above all, fast and suffer for those who know of the wrongness of their acts and persist in sin. They will need much more than simple engagement to come to true conversion. This is a war for their souls, even above the lives of the innocent, for what good is an ephemeral life if you lose your soul?
On another note, think of how hard it will be for Tiller's widow, 4 children, and 10 grandchildren to come to the realization that abortion is evil now. That's 15 souls that may be lost because Dr. Tiller is now a martyr for the cause of evil, not to mention his friends and supporters. We need to focus our attack on the damage done to women and children by the violence of abortion because this war will only be won in hearts. If we kill every abortion doctor, more will take their place. It is only by exposing the lies in the ideology that we will ultimately be successful. All sin is a choice and it is only by helping people conclude abortion is the worst possible choice that we can effect legislative change and get our nation's morality back on track.
