Anti-abortionist Supporters of Murder

You cannot make this shit up: Anti-abortionists are having a "bake" sale--a raffle, including an Army of God field manual and a prison cookbook--to raise money for Scott Roeder, the man who shot and killed Wichita (KS) doctor George Tiller earlier this year. Neiwert quotes a KC Star story:
An Army of God manual. A prison cookbook compiled by a woman doing time for abortion clinic bombings and arsons. An autographed bullhorn.

These are among the items that abortion foes plan to auction on eBay and other Web sites in a fundraiser for Scott Roeder, the Kansas City man charged with killing Wichita abortion doctor George Tiller.

“This is unique,” said Regina Dinwiddie, a Kansas City anti-abortion activist who will sign the bullhorn. “Nobody’s ever done this before. The goal is that everybody makes money for Scott Roeder’s defense.”

One abortion-rights leader called the auction deplorable and said it could lead to more violence.

“The network of extremists promoting and defending the murder of doctors is contributing to escalating threats against clinics and doctors across the country,” said Kathy Spillar, executive vice president of the Feminist Majority Foundation.

Roeder, charged with first-degree murder in the May 31 shooting of Tiller, is scheduled to go to trial in January.

Really! David Neiwert at C&L put up the story yesterday.

Rachel Maddow discusses this with attorneys for Tiller's family, who are resolved that any funds raised in Roeder's name be confiscated and dedicated to victims of similar crimes:
