Abortion Provider Killer Gets Life

The man who killed Dr. George Tiller showed no remorse when making his final statement in court. Scott Roeder got life, with parole possible only after more than 50 years:

Scott Roeder, the antiabortion extremist who murdered George Tiller, one of a handful of American physicians who performed late-term abortions, was sentenced to life in prison in a Wichita, Kan., courtroom Thursday and will not be eligible for parole for more than 50 years. . As Tiller's wife, Jeanne, and their four adult children looked on, an unrepentant Roeder addressed the court for more than 40 minutes in a rambling statement that was part defense of his action, part primer on abortion techniques and part sermon about the difference between God's laws and man's.
