Pro-Life Man Murdered in Michigan

OWOSSO, Michigan, September 11, 2009

An elderly pro-life activist was shot multiple times and killed this morning in front of Owosso High School in Michigan while he was peacefully protesting abortion with a sign depicting a baby and the word "Life," according to local police cited in the Flint Journal newspaper.
Locals say that the victim, James Pouillon of Owosso, was well-known in the area for his pro-life activities.

Sara Edwards, the chief assistant prosecutor for Shiawassee County, has confirmed that Pouillon's pro-life stance was the reason he was targeted and said the suspect officials have in custody disapproved of his abortion protests outside the schools.

The suspect will likely be charged later today. Local police say there has been a second, possibly related shooting, in Owosso that they are now investigating. The suspect in custody may have been involved in the second shooting that took place at a gravel company.


As Jeff Miller reports,
"It is of course fact that violence around abortion clinics is overwhelmingly done by pro-abortion advocates even if these circumstance rarely if ever get covered. The culture of death has lead to a cheapening of all life, but it surely does not mean that pro-abortion activists will become murderers. We must not demonize our foes even as they demonize the pro-life movement.
That being said I wonder if the President will make a statement like he made in regards to George Tiller's murder. Within short hours of that murder pretty much every pro-life group condemned it. So far abortion advocacy groups are imitating fields of crickets.
In the meantime we can pray for Mr. Pouillon and his family along with his murderer."
