The Associated Press reported June 7:

The man charged with murdering a high-profile abortion doctor claimed from his jail cell Sunday that similar violence was planned around the nation for as long as the procedure remained legal, a threat that comes days after a federal investigation launched into his possible accomplices.

A Justice Department spokesman said the threat was being taken seriously and additional protection had been ordered for abortion clinics last week….
Scott Roeder called The Associated Press from the Sedgwick County jail, where he’s being held on charges of first-degree murder and aggravated assault in the shooting of Dr. George Tiller one week ago….

“I know there are many other similar events planned around the country as long as abortion remains legal,” Roeder said. He would not elaborate.
It wasn’t clear whether Roeder knew of any impending violence or whether he was seeking publicity. Law enforcement authorities, including the Justice Department, said they didn’t know whether the threat was credible.

Recent polls (CNN here; Gallup here) indicate Americans approve of “harsh interrogation techniques” like waterboarding and sleep deprivation if danger is imminent.
Of course. Even Barack Obama has hypocritically reserved the right as president to waterboard while decrying the Bush Administration for using it.
But here’s where liberals have a clash of “values.” While opposing waterboarding as “torture,” they support torturous late-term abortions (fact: these babies feel the pain of being torn limb from limb or stabbed in the base of the skull before having their brains suctioned out) and those who commit them.
So if Roeder is actually aware of domestic pro-life terror cells (which even Tiller attorney Don Monnat dismissed as “harebrained,” but just sayin’), would pro-abortion groups support or oppose waterboarding or sleep deprivation of Roeder to gain information?
