MUST-READ: Pro-abortion shooter murders two people, pro-abortion groups silent

Story from LifeSiteNews. (H/T Andrew)

Excerpt:

An elderly pro-life activist was shot multiple times and killed this morning in front of Owosso High School in Michigan while he was peacefully protesting abortion with a sign depicting a baby and the word “Life,” according to local police cited in the Flint Journal newspaper.

Locals say that the victim, James Pouillon of Owosso, was well-known in the area for his pro-life activities.

[...]Reports indicate that a second individual was shot and killed in a different area of the city earlier in the day, and the two shootings are believed to be related, according to Shiawassee County sheriff George Braidwood. According to M-live.com, the second victim has now been identified as Mike Fuoss, 61, the owner of a local gravel pit. Fuoss was found dead in his office.

Police have confirmed that a suspect – a 33-year-old Owosso man – was taken into custody at the suspect’s home shortly after the 7:30 a.m. shooting. After being taken into custody he confessed to the second killing as well.

Pro-abortionists silent:

Police charged 33-year-old Owosso resident Harland James Drake Friday afternoon with Pouillon’s first-degree murder, as well as the first-degree murder of local gravel pit owner Mike Fuoss, 61, killed earlier in the morning.

Prosecutors said Drake told them he targeted Pouillon because of his pro-life activity.

Though Pouillon’s death has made headlines in major news media, leading national pro-abortion organizations including Planned Parenthood Federation of America, NARAL, the National Organization for Women, and the National Abortion Federation have issued no response to the slaying as of 4:45 p.m. EST.

Compare and contrast:

However, within minutes after news broke that Wichita’s late-term abortionist George Tiller was shot and killed on a Sunday morning while serving as an usher at his Lutheran church, dozens of nationwide pro-life leaders and organizations immediately poured out condemnations against the violence.

Operation Rescue, which had spearheaded peaceful protests of Tiller’s business for several years, was among the first to denounce the “vigilantism and the cowardly act that took place this morning,” adding that they were offering prayers for Tiller’s family.

  1. [...] 13, 2009 by Neil I was eager to see the pro-abortion bloggers rail against this murderer: Pro-abortion shooter murders two pro-lifers, pro-abortion groups silent « Wintery Knight Blog.  They boo-hoo’d over the death of George Tiller, but are strangely silent on this one [...]

    “Lori Lamerand, president and Chief Executive Officer of Planned Parenthood East Central Michigan, also expressed shock and sadness at the news.

    ‘We want to be very clear that we have no idea if this was related to his views, but Planned Parenthood would never condone any sort of violence against anyone, regardless of their views,’ said Lamerand.”

    From the same MLive article:

    By the way, only one of the two victims was a pro-life activist.

    • Title fixed. Sorry.

      • Billy says:

        Nowhere does the article suggest that Harland James Drake (the alleged shooter) is pro-abortion. His views on abortion are not presented anywhere I can find. The only evidence of his motivation is that some unnamed contact in the prosecutor’s office said that Drake objected to the graphic picture of an aborted fetus displayed by Pouillon. It is certainly wrong to kill someone for his/her expression of free speech, but it is an illogical conclusion to say that the killer is/was pro-abortion. Is there any evidence of other statements/actions regarding “pro-abortion” positions?

        • James says:

          Have you seen the picture that he was holding when shot?

          • NO! Do you have it or a description?

          • James says:

            Well I’m half disappointed I looked for you:

            http://www.jillstanek.com/archives/2009/09/update_on_the_m.html

            Scroll to the bottom to see the picture I saw before. Apperantly that is a two sided sign, the same that can be seen at the top. I saw the bottom picture the day after the murder, and did not realize that there was ongoing discussion about “which side was out”.

            As it is, it seems like he might have been holding the pictuer of a chopped up baby… or he might have been holding the cute little baby picture facing out. I haven’t seen any conclusive information.

            (The people saying that the “rods show that the aborted fetus side was out” are seeming to argue from the idea that the shooter was generally a good one. Considering he had already commited murder, and was firing from a car, I think there’s at least a good a reason to think he would be shooting wildly)

        • Retha says:

          The piece does say “Drake told them he targeted Pouillon because of his pro-life activity.”

    Well, I can’t say I’m surprised. (Disgusted, yes. Angry, yes. Surprised? Not really.)

    It simply seems logical that if someone kills babies–or supports killing babies in addition to being a psychopath–they’ll have no real qualms about killing an adult.

    And isn’t it interesting that the extremists who want women to be subservient to men and enslaved in their kitchens barefoot and pregnant were the first ones to decry the murder of a notorious abortionist?
