Maddow on Embrace of Scott Roeder by Extreme Anti-Abortion Activists

August 11, 2009

Rachel Maddow last night spoke about militant pro-violence anti-abortionists who have been visiting Scott Roeder, killer of abortion provider Dr. Tiller, in jail. My OBOS Blog Partner Christine also apparently caught the segment, but she was still awake at midnight to post about it, while I had already turned into a pumpkin. 🙂 Via C, links to Kansas City Star coverage of the visitors to Tiller’s murderer and related issues. According to the Star, visitors have included

“Two convicted clinic bombers. The man behind the Army of God Web site. Several activists who once signed a declaration that defended the killing of abortion doctors.”

Maddow interviewed Amy Hagstrom Miller, president of Whole Woman’s Health, for the piece, and the two spoke about whether these types of visitors would be allowed in jail for any *other* type of suspected terrorist.

MSNBC is not very embed-friendly, but you can see the segment at
