    I just saw a show on several people who took it on themselves to kill doctors. All were willing to sacrifice their freedom or even their lives for their beliefs.
    I couldn't help thinking of suicide bombers.

    Scott Roeder sentenced to life in prison - latimes.com

    Scott Roeder, the antiabortion extremist who murdered George Tiller, one of the handful of American physicians who performed late-term abortions, was sentenced to life in prison in a Wichita, Kan., courtroom Thursday and will not be eligible for parole for more than 50 years.

    "The blood of babies is on your hands!" he yelled at prosecutors as bailiffs lead him from the courtroom.

    A former airport shuttle driver who was once arrested with bomb-making materials in his car, Roeder, 52, was convicted on Jan. 29 of premeditated murder for shooting Tiller point-blank in the forehead during a Sunday service on May 31 as the doctor stood in the vestibule of his Wichita church.

    That's what happens when you choose to murder someone.

    And we'll all miss that wonderful man who butchered and dismembered babies in utero.

    Premeditated murder usually ends in long sentences.

    I'm leaning towards the belief that both Roeder and Tiller got what they deserved.

    I for one, won't mind having Scott Roeder in prison for the rest of his life.

    I admire his committment, but not his cause.

    It's for God to judge them both. I suspect He'll be kind of harsh on both. And they can spend eternity in Hell arguing about the rights and wrongs of their respective actions.
