UPDATE: I guess the ProLife is glad that Kansas is NOT ProDeath... Domestic Terrorist?

from The Wall Street Journal

A jury in Kansas found Scott Roeder guilty of first-degree murder in the killing of prominent abortion provider Dr. George Tiller. Roeder, 51, faces a mandatory sentence of life imprisonment with the possibility of parole after 25 years. He testified that he shot Tiller in the head in the foyer of a Wichita church because he believed the doctor posed an "immediate danger" to unborn children.

What the story does not mention is that Dr. George Tiller was the only abortion provider in Kansas, so this was a major hit for the ProLife movement in Kansas.
Women don't have a ProChoice option in Kansas now. It does mention his role in late-term abortions:

"Dr. Tiller was one of the nation's few providers of late-term abortions, and his Wichita clinic was the focus of many protests. It also had been under investigation by a former state district attorney who accused Tiller of skirting Kansas' abortion laws."

AND, it was Checkmate on Late-term abortion options in the United States.

I am sure that Scott Roeder thinks this death was worth 25 years or less of his life.
