In the current debate concerning the recent murder of Dr Tiller I thought it important to ensure this piece of information is not skipped over in the
rush to blame/take responsibility for the murderer's actions.
I would also add that anyone who would feel inclined to condone Scott Roeder's actions should note this.
We are not dealing with a "Christian" or "non-conformist" or "pro-life activist" we are speaking about the actions of a mentally ill individual whose
actions on Sunday might be regarded as acting our his particular psychosis.
Some might, and are already, blaming the pro-life movement or the rhetoric of television personalities etc. for Dr Tiller's murder. To do so, however,
would be to blame every similar action by a schizophrenic on whatever might feed their psychosis and that might be: samurai movies, comic books,
movies, TV adverts, history books, etc. etc....
Before we rush headlong into the blame game please attend to the facts of the perpetrator's biography and don't ignore it for the sake of point
scoring, or the worse threats to liberty and free-speech already being proposed on these pages and others.
