Tiller, "Operation Rescue" and Bonhoeffer

My cyber-friend and fellow pro-lifer Julie has a great blog post with the same title as this post. Here are a few excerpts:
"Jon and I were active in Operation Rescue back in the late 80s and early 90s. Jon spent Easter weekend (1990) in jail along with 300 Christians for blockading an abortion clinic in downtown Los Angeles. I stood with picketers on the sidelines with a baby in a backpack and a toddler in a stroller."
"The heyday of Operation Rescue resulted in little rescue. I mean, we heard about women who turned back from particular clinics. But that wouldn't have prevented them from seeking out other ones."
"The first tentative conversations I heard about murdering abortionists happened over dinner at one of the Operation Rescue leader's homes. ... Passive resistance was not effective. There needed to be graphic symbols and social/shaming pressure on abortionists to make them give up their abortion practices. This is when picketing abortionist homes became popular (using those graphic signs of aborted fetuses). But Jeff went further. He said if that didn't work, he could understand the need to take this cause all the way to murder (though quickly added that he didn't yet feel led that way himself)."
"Bonhoeffer didn't get a gun and stalk concentration camp guards. ... Killing abortionists is like killing a prison camp guard. It doesn't actually eliminate what a pro-life person sees as evil. It may stop abortions that day, but it doesn't change the nature of the laws, or address the reasons that abortion exists."
I so respect Julie's writing and clear thinking on this topic. IMO militant and inflammatory "baby killer" language is part of the problem and needs to stop. Head over to Julie's place to read all of her thoughts.. and leave a comment there.. I turned the comments off here.
