James Pouillon, the pro-life activist who was fatally gunned down Friday morning while expressing his contempt for abortion, was by no means as distinguished and magnanimous an individual as the late Dr. George Tiller, the renowned late-term abortionist who conducted more than 60,000 abortions during his lifetime and who, during the presidential campaign, magnanimously donated $20,000 to Barack Obama's fund-raising arm, the "Committee for Change". Nevertheless, it would behoove the president to express "shock" and "outrage" over the murder of James Pouillon as he did upon learning of the shooting death of his former [financial] benefactor, Dr. George Tiller.
For ultimately, very few of us are endowed with the unique brand of altruism which Dr. Tiller possessed or with the financial capability to donate $20,000 to Barack Obama and his fund-raising arm, the "Committee for Change". And while Mr. Pouillon may have shown a bit of insensitivity toward the needs of the pro-abortion community by siding with the enemy, namely, the unwanted fetuses of the world, killing him can not be justified. Mr. Pouillon's murderer, as well-intentioned and noble-hearted as he may be, should be condemned by both the president and the anti-life/anti-fetus community.
