eBay Refuses Fundraiser For Accused Tiller Killer

Posted by | October 28, 2009 15:04 | Filed under: Top Stories

The attempt to use eBay to raise money for the accused murderer of abortion provider George Tiller,  Scott Roeder (r), has been squelched by eBay.


“These materials contain hate messages, glorify violence against abortion doctors who provide constitutionally protected medical services, and instruct on means of violence, including bombing, of abortion clinics,” said Lee Thompson, an attorney for the Tiller family, in a letter sent to eBay on Tuesday and approved by Tiller’s widow, Jeanne Tiller. “We urge you to deny access to the resources of eBay for this reprehensible and vile ‘auction.’”


Regina Dinwiddie, who was ordered by a federal judge to not use her bullhorn within 500 feet of an abortion clinic in 1995, was going to donate the bullhorn to help her friend Roeder.  Dinwiddie believes eBay is constitutionally mandated to run her auction, complaining, “They’re not only chilling the First Amendment of the Constitution, they’re raping the whole Constitution.”
