Pro-lifer killed while witnessing to life

Jim Pouillon, a well-known pro-life activist was shot to death while witnessing to the sanctity of life outside of the Owosso High School in Flint, Michigan . The killing occurred at about 7:30 am, Friday, Sept. 11, 2009 as Pouillon stood outside of the school building. He held a large poster of a baby with the message “Life” written in large letters. The victim, dependent on an oxygen tank and who wore leg braces, was a committed pro-life activist who for many years stood outside of Flint area abortion clinics and Planned Parenthood offices in the hope of turning women away from their abortion decision.

Monica Migliorino Miller, director of Citizens for a Pro-life society, headquartered in Michigan, states:

“Jim died while giving a peaceful witness to the sacredness of human life. He stood outside of the local high school on many occasions holding a sign of a baby to send a message to the students that abortion is the taking of innocent life. Now his life has been taken as he stood in witness against the injustice of abortion. When violence is aimed at those who provide abortion—pro-life leaders are swift to condemn it. We call on the pro-abortion community to condemn this violence against Jim Pouillon. Many have already blamed Jim for his own death because he dared to stand on the street with a pro-life sign. Such a point of view is atrocious and grossly irresponsible.”

“Jim Pouillon is a hero—he died for the cause of life.”

Yep. I know where he is. As a martyr, he's looking down on this sad planet begging the Almighty to withold His wrath for people like us. Bravo!! I flagrantly applaud thy work, my friend, and I'll look forward to having a PINT of ale with you in Heaven Above --- Nevertheless, my point is this: Non-believers in Christ are like particle board: alright for cabinet making and behind-the-scene in the dark, but ever see a HOUSE made up of that capillary material in the daylight? When the wind blows, you know how it goes: structural collapse, no meatNbones bringing U.S. to the Great Beyond. Barack Obama’s exactly like that: controlled by the filthy rich, while partial-birth-abortion’s STILL a mortal sin deserving of the Abyss DOMINUS VOBISCUM
