Read Elizabeth Scalia on First Things responding to the furor in the pro-life community over the killing of Dr. George Tiller. Scalia also writes the blog The Anchoress. "Slippery slope is a useful cliché, particularly on this issue. The same slippery slopes that call for the manufacture of those ever-increasing-in-size forceps exist in the idea that Bonhoeffer or Tiller's murderer, Scott Roeder, should be emulated. They should not. George Tiller's life may not have been a life any of us would have wanted, or admired, but it was the life he had, and he was entitled to it." Her piece is called "Tiller, Long, Bonhoeffer and Assassination."
