The trouble is, Hern wasn't reflecting on Tiller's appalling practice of keeping supposedly deathly ill women in motel rooms for three days with their newly-killed babies rotting inside them -- something no reasonable doctor would do. He was referring to "the violence" that poor hapless Tiller had to endure from those mean old people who think that a live baby is preferable to a dead one.
Oh, well. The good news is, Tiller's mill will be permanently closed. LeRoy Carhart will have to go back to his converted muffler shop, Shelley Sella will have to go back to whatever rock she crawled out from under, and Kristin Neuhaus can go on unemployment, I suppose, since nobody in Kansas but Tiller would send any work her way. But I agree wholeheartedly with Troy Newman:
Troy Newman ... called the announcement that the clinic would close permanently "a bittersweet moment." ....
"Operation Rescue was just two months away from getting Tiller's medical license revoked, and that would have accomplished the same goal," Newman said in an e-mail.
A complaint before the State Board of Healing Arts, which licenses and regulates doctors in Kansas, alleged that Tiller violated a state law that required him to obtain a second opinion from an independent physician. It also accused Tiller of engaging in unprofessional or dishonorable conduct.
A spokeswoman for the board has said since Tiller's death that the case likely would be closed.
Again, secrets we had long prayed would come into the light were taken into the grave, thanks to that idiot Roeder. Schizophrenia is no excuse for either evil or stupidity, and he's guilty of both -- committing murder, and screwing up the investigation into exactly what went on behind closed doors in Wichita.
