Pro-Lifer shot dead

James Pouillon, 63, was known as "just a nice, elderly gentleman who was disabled, used an oxygen tank and wore leg braces." He was shot and killed today as he was engaged in his customary peaceful pro-life protest across the street from Owosso High School.

Pouillon is on record condemning violence against abortionists. His protests were considered confrontational by some. Here is the news story on ABC local:

In England, of course, the link between the abortion issue and violence is widely reported and debated. So here is the latest news on today's killing from the BBC website (click to enlarge):
