Suit Reveals Ties Among Radical Abortion Opponents
By ROXANA HEGEMAN Associated Press
WICHITA, Kan. January 27, 2013 (AP)

A lawsuit against a Kansas woman who publicly proclaimed her admiration for the man who gunned down one of the country's few late-term abortion providers is revealing the unwavering support a small group of radical anti-abortion activists has for the imprisoned killer despite an ongoing federal investigation into the 2009 slaying.

Though no federal indictments have been handed down by a grand jury investigating whether Dr. George Tiller's death was connected to a broader case involving extreme anti-abortion activists, the lawsuit against Angel Dillard is one indication the Justice Department is taking a more heavy handed approach to perceived threats to abortion providers. In addition to alleging Dillard, of Valley Center, sent a threatening letter in 2011 to another Wichita doctor who was training to offer abortions, the lawsuit also highlights Dillard's relationship with Scott Roeder, the man convicted of fatally shooting Tiller at the physician's church.

When Roeder opened fire on Tiller, he propelled himself to icon status among abortion opponent extremists a status that hasn't wavered since he was sentenced to life in prison. A leader in the Army of God, which supports violence against abortion doctors, notes Roeder gets more correspondence than other imprisoned anti-abortion activists.

Hailed by militant anti-abortion forces as a "prisoner of Christ," Roeder has been spreading his radical views from a Kansas prison. Other extremists have gravitated to Roeder, visiting him in prison, sending him money and offering legal advice, court documents show.

1. There is no difference between those would bomb a clinic and the Taliban spiritually.

Only difference is outward appearance, inside they are the same animal. If they continue with their bloodlust that is never satisfied, this country will be like the radical anti-woman Muslim cultures they claim they hate. They point the finger and say they are not for Sharia law - as if it is special and exotic. It is not, neither is Islam. The mindset and heart of those who want to use woman as dumb breeding animals and chattel is the same. The USA should permit this to go any farther. We have a lot of work to do to regain a secular government and a society that respects all of us.

3. Impossible! That would constitute a conspiracy

And I can't count the number of times I've been lectured/laughed-at for suggesting that any such thing ever happens.
