Ann Coulter doesn’t “really like to think of it as a murder,” discussing the killing of Kansas abortion provider George Tiller with Bill O’Reilly on Fox News’ The O’Reilly Factor Monday. “I like to think of it as terminating someone in the 203rd trimester,” the conservative personality says.
Even O’Reilly — charged by abortion advocates with fomenting violence against Tiller with years worth of references to “Tiller the Baby Killer” — affects a dismayed reaction to Coulter’s words. “You can’t diminish what that killer did, or you have anarchy,” O’Reilly says a moment after the screen shows a picture of Scott Roeder, the 51-year-old man authorities say gunned down Tiller May 31 while the doctor ushered at a Wichita church.
“I am personally opposed to shooting abortionists,” Coulter says, “but I don’t want to impose my moral values on others.” Over some cross-talk from O’Reilly, she looks at the camera and adds, “Their logic is, if you don’t believe in abortion, don’t have an abortion. If you don’t believe in shooting abortionists, then don’t shoot an abortionist.”

Coulter, incidentally, might have shown up at the Independence Institute’s Alcohol, Tobacco & Firearms bash in Bennett this past weekend if Sam Wurzelbacher, aka Joe the Plumber, hadn’t already been booked. That’s according to Denver Post gossip columnist Bill Husted, who noted a few weeks back that he “ran into Ann Coulter in Palm Beach last week.” She also told Husted she “loves Jon Caldara,” the president of the Golden-based think tank.
