Pro-Lifer Laments His Role in Abortion Doctor's Death
Frank Schaeffer accepts responsibility for the role he and his father, the late Francis Schaeffer, played in the radicalization of the pro life movement, sharing the blame, in addition to his father, with others of the pro life movement for the murder of Dr. George Tiller.
Dubbed Tiller the Baby Killer by elements within the pro life movement, Dr. Tiller was murdered while attending church in Wichita, Kansas on Sunday, May 31, 2009.
Mr. Schaeffer's father was the author of A Christian Manifesto, which advocated the use of force if all else failed in rolling back Roe vs Wade, the landmark abortion rights court decision.
Citing his father's comparison of America to Hitler's Germany due to legalized abortion, he states his father believed methods that could be considered morally jusitified for removing Hitler should be considered justified for ending abortion.
Mr. Schaffer states he left the movement he helped his father create in the mid 1980s.
