Five steps to a partial birth abortion: 1) Guided by ultrasound, the abortionist grabs the baby's legs with forceps. 2) The baby's legs are pulled out into the birth canal. 3) The abortionist delivers the baby's entire body, except for the head. The baby's arms and legs flail about. 4) The abortionist jams scissors into the baby's skull and the baby's body contracts with shock. The scissors are then opened to enlarge the skull. 5) The scissors are removed and a suction catheter is inserted. The child's brains are sucked out, causing the skull to collapse and the baby to go limp. The dead baby is then removed.The Nazis experimented with various methods of abortion, but even they were not depraved enough to come up with this technique. For the nominal sum of $5,000, Tiller would perform one of these abortions as late as the final day of the pregnancy. Where he slipped up is that a second doctor's opinion, which is required by state law, came from a doctor he employed. He was acquitted earlier this year, but faced further charges. The moral dilemma here is, when is violence justified to prevent further violence? The death of Tiller effectively brings to an end the horrendous practice of partial-birth abortion in Kansas. Was it worth it? Probably not. This will prove to be a -- you should excuse the expression -- Godsend for anti-Christian bigots, who will use it as proof of just how barbaric pro-lifers really are. Nearly 150 years ago, John Brown was found guilty of treason against the state of Virginia and hanged for his raid on Harpers Ferry. His intent was to spark a slave uprising and end the institution of slavery across the South. One wonders how our history would have been affected had he succeeded. There will be no civil war over abortion. This crime against humanity has become a stain on the fabric of our society that can never be washed out as long as one political party promotes it and the other party has lost the will to stand against it.

Tiller the Killer Aborted -- Late-Term
Talk about mixed emotions. As a journalist, it isn't often that I am shocked by news, but when I got to work tonight and found that late-term abortionist George Tiller had been murdered, I did feel a little jolt of electricity surge through my body. Yes, murder is wrong. But, how does one mourn a monster? Tiller was the only abortionist in Kansas who performed partial-birth abortions.
