A few months ago I saw a biopic entitled Padre Pio: Miracle Man. In one scene, Padre Pio sternly reprimands a man who justified vengeful acts against another because their sinful behavior merited such treatment.
Padre Pio angrily shouted “You can’t fight Satan with Satan’s tactics.”
This came to mind last night when I learned of the murder of notorious late-term abortionist Dr. George Tiller.
Did another man have the right to take Dr. Tiller’s life? No. Even if it means that the lives of many innocent babies may be saved because of this action?
Only God has the right to decide when Dr. Tiller was to die. Just as only God has the right to decide whether or not an unborn baby lives or dies.
It is possible that one day Dr. Tiller could have repented. Consider the case of Dr. Stojan Adasevic, a Serbian former abortionist who murdered a reported 48,000 babies. His powerful conversion story shows how God can touch any heart, at any time.
Finally, it is important to note that the man who murdered Dr. Tiller was definitely not 'pro-life' . Murder, be it of a full grown man or an unborn baby, is against everything the pro-life movement stands for.
Please pray for Dr. Tiller and his family, pray for the person who shot him and pray with all of your heart for the conversion of every other abortionist on this planet.
