    Operation Rescue adviser helped Tiller suspect track doctor's court dates

    I don't want to unfairly associate Scott Roeder with any pro-life group or organization, but this story definitely raises some eyebrows about Operation Rescue-- or, at the very least, this one particular advisor.

    At the time of Roeder’s arrest Sunday afternoon along Interstate 35 in Johnson County, a television station captured the vehicle on video. There on the dashboard was a note that read “Cheryl” and “Op Rescue” with a phone number.

    Cheryl Sullenger, senior policy adviser for Operation Rescue out of Wichita, said Tuesday that she has spoken to Roeder in the past, but she said he would initiate the contact. She said she hasn’t had any recent contact with him.

    Sullenger served about two years in prison after pleading guilty to conspiring to bomb an abortion clinic in California in 1988. She has since renounced violent action.
    I certainly hope the police are questioning this woman, checking her phone and computer records etc.

    With the proper warrants, I must emphasize. It applies to this administration as well as to Bush's.

    Prohibitionists are a dangerous cult.

    Especially after they get their way.

    Rational people must unite against all their flavors, no matter what they're trying to prohibit - alcohol, sex, drugs, rock'n'roll, mere copying of kiddy porn, drunk driving (as opposed to dangerous driving), dog fighting, individual health choices like abortion, or anything else they might come up with. By allowing them to prohibit one, you make it easier for them to prohibit an other.

    No victim, no crime!

    Um... So, kiddie porn, drunk driving, and dog fighting are victimless crimes??

    Kiddie porn is at most a picture of a crime, not the crime itself.

    Causing an accident is a crime, in the sense that you are responsible for damages. Whether that accident was caused because you were drunk, old, young, sleepy, stupid, stressed out about the kids in the back, momentarily destructed by a billboard, or whatever else is your problem. In a free society all roads would be privately owned, and the road owners would make whatever rules they see fit to restrict access to those roads, but there's no reason for the law to be involved preemptively.

    And dogs don't have rights.

    So libertarianism does not seek truth?

    IT's this flavor fo Libertarianism that makes me not embrace them.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Kiddie porn is not a victimless crime, as it would not exist if there was not a market for it. IMHO, those who download kiddie porn are just as guilty as those who took the pictures, since they helped contribute to the abuse of the child in the photo by providing the market for it.

    I don't agree, but I wouldn't let the "an"-cap derail the thread.
