Roeder Defender: “Christian Scripture…Would Support this”

Posted by | June 1, 2009 12:35 | Filed under: Top Stories

Dave Leach, who runs an anti-abortion news letter to which the suspected George Tiller killer contributed, defends his actions. Scott Roeder (right, in custody) was a subscriber and contributor to Leach’s “Prayer and Action News.”

Mr. Leach said he and Mr. Roeder had met once, and Mr. Roeder had described similar views to his own. Of Dr. Tiller’s death, Mr. Leach said, “To call this a crime is too simplistic,” adding, “There is Christian scripture that would support this.”

Roeder and Leach met when they visited the woman who sot Tiller in 1993.

…Leach, said he met Roeder in Topeka when he went there to visit Shelley Shannon, who was in prison for shooting Tiller in both arms in 1993.

Roeder also wrote on the anti-abortion website, Operation Rescue:

“Bleass everyone for attending and praying in May to bring justice to Tiller and the closing of his death camp. Sometime soon, would it be feasible to organize as many people as possible to attend Tillers church (inside, not just outside) to have much more of a presence and possibly ask questions of the Pastor, Deacons, Elders and members while there? Doesn’t seem like it would hurt anything but bring more attention to Tiller.”


Unlike its founder, Randall Terry, Operation Rescue has condemned Tiller’s killing.
