Paul Hill Days omen

One of the sponsors of the execrable Paul Hill Days stunt taking place this weekend in Milwaukee died last week.

Rev. George L. Wilson, who founded the group "Children Need Heroes" to celebrate the actions of those assassins who have murdered doctors and others in the name of stopping abortion, died unexpectedly of a heart attack on Saturday morning. He was one of the sponsors of a gathering of anti-abortion extremists on the anniversary of the date on which Hill murdered Dr. John Britton and his escort retired Lt. Col. James Barrett, along with the wounding of Barrett's wife, June.

"Paul Hill Days" will include demonstrations at the women's health clinics in Milwaukee that perform abortions and a reenactment of Hill's crime. While a gathering of apologists for terrorism is appalling enough, Wilson's group is specifically dedicated to indoctrinating children to admire the terrorists and, presumably, to grow up and imitate them.

Coming as it does on the eve of this elaborate stunt, I hope Wilson's death will make the other supporters and participants take pause and wonder if maybe their god doesn't look quite as favorably on their actions as they believe. I hope that, but I don't expect it.
