Tranquility or terrorism?
By Judie Brown
July 2, 2009

Having just returned from a 16-day tour of national parks in the western states, from Glacier http://www.nps.gov/glac to Zion, http://www.nps.gov/zion I was overwhelmed by a feeling of tranquility upon realizing that God's handiwork undoubtedly outshines man's foibles and fumbles, day in and day out. And then when I arrived in my office yesterday, what do I see but American Life League's latest ALL Report: "Tiller, Terror and TV Tilt." http://www.all.org/downloads_videoStream.php?ref=4069

It's painful to focus away from the majesty, wonder and serenity of Zion National Park toward a cultural decline that is clearly exacerbated by a bloodthirsty media that stops at nothing to make it appear that respect for life is the equivalent of being henchmen for Osama bin Laden! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Osama_bin_Laden Oh, I kid you not.

Within this five-minute-and-17-second ALL Report, http://www.all.org/downloads_videoStream.php?ref=4069 you are going to see and hear images and language that belong in a trash bin, not in a civil discussion about the continuation of a "mainstream" cultural attitude that thrives on death and deception.

The establishment media has made a career out of doing all it can to downplay the effectiveness of pro-life activity, and as the video points out, it has done so at the expense of truth and civility. For example, MSNBC's Rachel Maddow used her June 5 television program http://rss.msnbc.msn.com/id/31173155/ns/msnbc_tv-rachel_maddow_show/ to report on American Life League's Protest the Pill Day as an example of how pro-life Americans abuse language because we tell the truth about how the birth control pill works. She rants on and on about how events like this lead deranged criminals like Scott Roeder to gun down abortion doctors. Maddow does this with impunity while displaying an American Life League "The Pill Kills" sign, claiming that we should have cancelled Protest the Pill events across this nation because they were scheduled for the same day that George Tiller was laid to rest. Never mind that the events had been scheduled for months in advance.

A commentator such as Maddow, lacking any semblance of objectivity and with MSNBC cameras at her disposal, is not a good thing for life-affirming, compassionate pro-life Americans. However, as you watch our All Report, you will also note that Maddow is not alone in her vigilante attitude toward those who respect life.

We are reminded of the harsh words CNN's Keith Olbermann had when talking about Jill Stanek http://www.olbermann.org/ko/video_detail.cfm?id=11385 and giving her the "world's worst person" award. And why did Mr. Olbermann suggest such a thing? Well, Stanek, who can defend herself with one arm tied behind her back, thank you, tells us the truth: http://www.jillstanek.com/archives/2009/06/olbermann_names.html

    My award comes for supposedly making the supposedly last 2 late-term abortionists in the free world sitting ducks for Tiller copycat killers by posting their addresses and photos of their mills.

    Never mind that I didn't actually post the addresses of LeRoy Carhart and Warren Hern... had I done so it would have been akin to posting the address of President Obama and being accused of making him a target for nutcases.

    Libs, get a brain. These guys both advertise on the web. They want people to know where they operate, pardon the pun.

Lest you are still not curious about viewing American Life League's remarkable news report, take a moment to consider this as the final straw that broke the arrogant, venomous camel's back. In his blog, Alan Colmes, no respecter of factual evidence, wrote this about Jenn Giroux, one of the most adorable women in the pro-life movement, http://www.alan.com/2009/06/02/are-groups-that-actively-pursued-tiller-culpable-in-his-murder/ under the title "Are groups that actively pursued Tiller culpable in his murder?"

    Giroux, who runs ChargeTiller.com, http://www.chargetiller.com/ spent two years pursuing criminal charges against Tiller, and referred to him as "Tiller the Killer," and falsely charged that he performed illegal abortions. Giroux also accused Tiller of bribing government officials on a page that was taken down after his killing.

    The accused assassin posted this on her site.

      It seems as though what is happening in Kansas could be compared to the 'lawlessness' which is spoken of in the Bible," it said. "Tiller is the concentration camp 'Mengele' of our day and needs to be stopped before he and those who protect him bring judgment upon our nation.

    I'm not sure that you can claim causality when some whack-job does something insane. You never know just what sets people off.

This post by Colmes, a very well-known pro-abortion extremist, has never been corrected, annotated or in any way updated to reflect how Jenn actually explains the position of her organization, Women Influencing the Nation (WIN). She wrote this on the ChargeTiller.com web site itself: http://www.womeninfluencingthenation.com/win-statement-on-the-murder-of-george-tiller.html

    WIN presented the petition of signatures and comments from ChargeTiller.com at Kansas legislative committee hearing on late term abortions in September 2007, which were entered into the record.

    This website condemns the May 31, 2009, murder of George Tiller. Following is WIN's public statement, released that same day:

      "Women Influencing the Nation condemns all form of murder. The murder of George Tiller is in direct contradiction with the beliefs and morals embraced by those of us who believe that every life is precious in the eyes of God and no individual has the right to take the life of another. We encourage everyone to pray for the repose of Dr. Tiller's soul."

    Due to the highly charged comments ChargeTiller.com began receiving upon the announcement of George Tiller's tragic death, often profanity laden and menacing, WIN determined to disable the site for two weeks, until June 15, 2009.

    ChargeTiller.com provides an excellent example of peaceful, law-abiding, respectful expression as ordained by our First Amendment. Citizens from across the nation continue to seek justice from their elected officials and law enforcement agencies to expose what happens inside the Tiller-owned Women's Health Care Services as well as the devastating effects that his illegal practice had upon women and their families.

    The site's primary focus has always been to return the rule of law to Kansas. We have yet to achieve that goal.

As someone who knows and admires Jenn Giroux, Jill Stanek and American Life League staffers, who work tirelessly to tell the truth and expose the fact that the act of abortion is a crime against humanity, and who unfailingly do so with total respect for our fellow human beings, I am grieved by such arrogance, but I am not at all surprised. We are dealing with absolute denial of evil in this nation today, and this is why the report that I have recommended to you is so important.

Yes, there are facts to back up the statements that the people such as Giroux, Stanek and "The Pill Kills" coordinator, Marie Hahnenberg, http://www.all.org/article.php?id=11436 have made, and yes, abortion does exactly what we said it does. Preborn human beings with individual identities, who will never know the glory of hosting a television program or reaching millions with their voices, die by acts of abortion, be they chemical, medical or surgical. These people will never have the chance to become leading spokespeople for any cause or ideology ... They are dead!

Preborn babies, not to mention all Americans, owe a debt of gratitude to these fine women and men who continue to fight on valiantly, even when the attack-dog media would love nothing better than to shut us all up by creating an image of terrorism where, in fact, there is a genuine image of Christ's love for our fellow human beings. We are Christians; we are not perfect; but we do affirm the life of every human being.

Please watch the ALL Report and spread the word. We need the opportunity to get the facts out, and it really is up to us. For ALL Report host Michael Hichborn says, http://www.all.org/downloads_videoStream.php?ref=4069 "In a world that believes violence is the answer to suffering, the only solution is promoting a culture of life."
