Is Bill O'Reilly responsible for Dr. Tiller's Death

Abortion is a nasty issue in American politics. Many of people who find abortions immoral, however, still support a woman's right to choose. Those who consider abortions murder do not support a woman's right for an abortion no matter the circumstances. The issue is a thorny one and Americans have been fighting this battle for decades.
One of the nastiest battles is on the front of late-term abortions. With the death of Dr. George Tiller of Kansas, there are now less than a handful of doctors in this country who perform later term abortions. As unpalatable as abortion is, to many late term abortions are criminal.

Tiller was the US' largest practitioner of late term abortions. As such, he was a target of FoxNews and other right wing pundits. Bill O'Reilly called him "Tiller the baby killer" on numerous occasions. Ann Coulter said that she doesn't agree with killing of abortion doctors, but refuses to push her morals on other people (watch videos above). Hal Lindsay hopes that Tiller burns in hell.

After Tiller's death, O'Reilly claimed that murder of any type was wrong and played the victim because major left wing pundits said that he had "blood on his hands". The fact is that O'Reilly's speech was reckless at best and possibly criminal. He speaks to an audience that is armed and sometimes paranoid. He knew that he was handing some nutcase a motive for murder and he continued to use hate speech. Coulter's statement was even disavowed by O'Reilly and Lindsay well is LIndsay. He has made a fortune on the fears of the faithful.

The questions is where are the laymen who believe that these people are urging hate? Or do they secretly harbor gratitude for Tiller's murderer? Is there ever a good reason to murder? Do most religions condone the murder of Tiller? Bill O'Reilly did long before Tiller was murdered and Ann Coulter and Hal Lindsay did after he was dead. How about other conservatives?

      WOW! I did not know that. I have always thought Bill O'Reilly was a pecker head, but I was not aware of this. I am not supprised though, that dude is always talking crap, and pointing fingers (crooked fingers apparently). Thanks for the article, great work. -Joshua,

      This guy should be ashamed. Glen Beck is another one who is crying "Fire" in a crowded theory. Inflaming crazy people is irresponsible. It many not be illegal but that doesn't make it right.
