Dr Tiller and Pittsburgh’s pro-life students

In the last semester I have spent a lot of time thinking about abortion, and the common ground between pro-life and pro-choice students. I have strong acquaintances with pro-life leaders on my campus, including several members of the CMU Respect for Life Club, while being a escort for Planned Parenthood. Dr Tiller’s murder is abhorrent to the anti-violence message of many in the pro-life student movement. Scott Roeder, the accused murderer, or whomever is responsible, cannot in my mind be placed in the same thought as the non-violent student protesters outside of my clinic. The non-violent protesters outside of my clinic are part of our national dialog on abortion. Our country grows by debate, even painful debate, and without a strongly argued dialog, we will stagnate as a society.

Violence has no place in that dialogue.

PS: This post, and the next two posts may be cross-posted on the CMU Respect for Life Club’s website through an arrangement I have.
