Terror works

I mean, what other lesson are we supposed to derive from this?

George Tiller’s clinic will close in the wake of the Wichita abortion provider’s shooting death, lawyers for the Tiller family said today.

Lee Thompson and Dan Monnat, the family’s lawyers, said in a statement that the clinic, Women’s Health Care Services, will be permanently closed, effective immediately.

(For a nice long slug of Teh Crazy, read the comments, too. All some of them lack is a reminder at the end that women need to stay veiled in public.)

And that’s certainly the lesson the accused terrorist seems to have derived:

An anti-abortion activist suspected in the death of Kansas doctor George Tiller said Tuesday that the closing of Tiller’s women’s clinic is “a victory for all the unborn children.”

This is just the latest in a long string of events that the government, for reasons that surpasseth understanding, refuses to acknowledge as terrorism. That terrorism needs to be stopped, swiftly and forcefully.

And given Operation Rescue’s involvement — Cheryl Sullenger, senior policy adviser, kept suspect Scott Roeder apprised of (trumped-up) legal proceedings against Tiller and then said after the shooting, “Who knew? Who knew, you know what I mean?”, which is almost as disingenuous as Pontius Pilate’s hand-washing — I would be delighted to see the Southern Poverty Law Center bring suit against the group. Even if there ultimately aren’t grounds for bankrupting the group — and I wouldn’t bet the farm on that — I think discovery alone would be very, very interesting … to law enforcement, among others.
