You may have heard of the murder of George Tiller. Who was he? He was one of the very few abortionists in the United States that would perform late term abortions. The pre-"aborted" child was so developed that he or she could survive outside the mother's womb. So, you can see, that he was a very controversial person.
I'm writing to tell you that the man who shot Mr. Tiller, Scott Roeder, has caused a great deal of scandal. It is not our right to take another's life. If we claim that it's our right, the core of our peace movement, the right to life, would collapse in self-contradiction. There will be many that, because of this scandal, will paint right to lifers as mindless radicals. I want to remind you that we are Christ-centered, peaceful people. Think about Jesus when he was persecuted: Did he act in violence or was he the model of peace, tranquility, faith and hope? He bore all violence done to him for the sake of his Father. We, too, are called to do the same when we are slandered.
Peace be with you.
