Tiller getting favorable jury

As Jury Selection Continues, Operation Rescue Calls Pro-lifers To Wichita For Prayer

Pray, pray, pray for justice in the Tiller case -- because it's looking more and more hopeless. Jurors are being dismissed for being too pro-life, but not for being too prochoice. Which means that they're getting a jury that is strongly slanted to find Tiller innocent purely because of their ideology and not because of the evidence -- which is frankly incontrovertible, for two reasons:

1. It's nonsensical on its face that any situation could meet Kanas law. If the baby is past viability, the treatment of choice for over half a century has been to induce labor or do an emergency c-section, to get the pregnancy ended as quickly as possible. Just ask yourself this -- what possible severe health problem can a pregnant woman have for which any responsible physician would prescribe three days at the Wichita LaQuinta with her mother? If her health is in danger, she belongs in a fully-equipped hospital, attended by doctors and nurses.

2. It's nonsensical on its face that Tiller had independent physicians verifying a medical justification for abortions -- mainly because of point #1. Add to that the fact that the same doctor signed off on every single one, a doctor that Tiller provided space for in his facility.

Tiller is so patently guilty that if he gets acquitted, the precedent will be clear: If an abortionist does it, it is by definition legal. And don't think that the National Abortion Federation, Planned Parenthood, and independent quacks don't have their lawyers watching this case and getting ready to break the law with equal impunity.

"House of David, this is what the LORD says: 'Administer justice every morning; rescue from the hand of his oppressor the one who has been robbed, or my wrath will break out and burn like fire because of the evil you have done-burn with no one to quench it.'" (Jeremiah 21:12)

This jury will have to answer to God if they let this man walk.

Oh -- and watch this Discovery Channel video of a fetus crying in response to being startled by a loud sound. Tell me what Tiller's doing isn't killing babies.

Wow, that video is amazing! What a precious little baby. It is a SHAME that they're stacking the jury in his favor but I can't say I am all that surprised. I'm disgusted by it. Also, did you know that on March 13th a patient of Tiller's was taken to Wesley Medical Center via ambulance. The ambulance travelled with no lights or sirens "at the request of the abortion facility". There is a video of this at Operation Rescue's website. The patient, when they unloaded her from the ambulance, seemed to me to be startlingly small. Supposedly she is very young (and seeing her size I believe it). The sheet was pulled over her face, I assume to protect her privacy. I hope she is OK now, I haven't been able to find any info about her condition but I thought you might want to know about the latest Tiller botch job.

"...the same doctor signed off on every single one, a doctor that Tiller provided space for in his facility."
Neuhaus gave a reasonable explanation:
"[Prosecutor] Disney...asked if Neuhaus ever thought Tiller should have had more than one consulting physician for patients to see. Neuhaus said patients were free to see whomever they chose, but that few doctors in Kansas would offer a second opinion on such a controversial procedure. She said it was easiest and most convenient for her to be the primary second physician."
If convicted, Tiller likely will appeal on the basis of, among other things, the nonaffiliation law not being for the safety of abortion patients but simply intended to harass and impede physicians in the practice of medicine in a controversial area.

Allison, what possible medical condition can possibly be serious enough that you can't let the pregnancy go the rest of the way to term without the woman suffering serious injury or death -- so you prescribe three days at the Wichita LaQuinta with her mom?

If she's so sick that they need to get that baby out of her, you can induce labor. If it's an emergency, do a c-section. You can have the baby out of the mom and in the NICU within the hour. What possible sense does it make to take her AWAY from constant medical care?

Look what it did to Christin Gilbert. Tiller's practice kept sending her back to the motel as she got sicker and sicker instead of hospitalizing her until she'd coded on them. She DIED.

Call that medical care?
