The Murder Of An Abortion Doctor Is Unacceptable! (but what say you?)

Murder is unacceptable either way you look at it. A woman should NOT murder her unborn child however it is unacceptable for anyone to take matters into their own hands and murder an individual that performs abortions. Its morally wrong as the laws of the land clearly state you cannot murder another person (that had already been born outside of a mothers womb….that’syou and I) and it is  wrong biblically because Exodus 20:13 says Thou shalt not kill. Hebrews 10:30 says For we know him that has said, Vengeance belongs to me, I will recompense, said the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge his people.

With his death Sunday, George Tiller became the eighth person and the fourth doctor killed in abortion-related attacks.

It was the first killing of an abortion provider in more than a decade. Before Sunday, the most recent killing of an abortion provider was on Oct. 23, 1998, when a sniper shot Barnett Slepian in his New York home.

The sniper, James Kopp, fled the country but was caught in 2001. He was convicted of the murder in 2003 and sentenced to 25 years to life in prison.

In July 1994, John Britton and his security escort were killed while sitting in a car in the parking lot of a Pensacola, Fla., abortion clinic. Britton’s wife was wounded in the attack.

Paul J. Hill, an excommunicated Presbyterian minister, was arrested and convicted of the killings. He was executed in 2003, making him the first person put to death for an abortion-related killing.

David Gunn was the first abortion doctor killed when he was shot March 10, 1993, while abortion opponents demonstrated outside his Pensacola clinic. Gunn’s killer, Michael Griffin, was arrested at the protest and later sentenced to life in prison.

Other attacks on abortion clinics resulted in the 1994 deaths of two receptionists at clinics in suburban Boston.

An off-duty police officer who was working as a security guard at a Birmingham, Ala., clinic was killed in January 1998 when a bomb left by Eric Robert Rudolph exploded. Rudolph also was responsible for the deadly bombing in 1996 at Centennial Olympic Park in Atlanta. (The Wichita Eagle)

Everyone deserves a chance to ask for forgiveness and to be forgiven of their sins they have committed, however, if you make the decision to take someones life based on sin’s they have committed, you yourself are going against the Word of God point blank. In plain English Hebrews 10:30 is saying “God has warned us that he’ll hold us to account and make us pay. He was quite explicit: “Vengeance is mine, and I won’t overlook a thing” and “God will judge his people.” Nobody’s getting by with anything, believe me.” (The Message Bible).

Let us all learn to allow GOD to judge His people, remembering that He wont overlook a think!
