We Need Squelch Free Speech Since Pro-Choicers Are Violent

Well, no, that's not really true. But if I were using the logic of the pro-abortion crowd whenever an abortion doctor is killed, I'd be calling them terrorists after a lunatic gunned down a pro-life supporter.

Shockingly, I'm not seeing any postings on this event on feminist blogs or even the major leftwing blogs like Daily KOS. But that's ok, because they didn't cover the killing of an abortion doctor either. Riiight.

Like others, I'm not arguing that one death is more important than another. But watching the total blackout on the left of this news is telling. Kill an abortion doctor? That's a tragedy and it should be covered extensively. Kill a pro-life supporter? Not news.

UPDATE: Majikthise has actually created a post about the shooting, but, well, let's say it doesn't come across as nearly as angry she was about the killing of Tiller. And now there's this post that offers dual explanations: the killing may not be related to abortion at all! and "He was asking for it!"
