What will it mean?

I cannot say what it "will" mean, but, as far as I am concerned, what it "does" mean...now...is that there are anti-abortion zealots, who are more tolerant of unwanted, abused children in this world, than those who are born into stable, healthy, prepared environments!

The statistics reflecting live-births of unwed, underaged mothers, in the US...without educations...skills...and, working a knowledge of what "parenting" entails mean...are astronomical, and climbing.

Our media and advertising foster "sex", and mating, at earlier and earlier ages, these days.

And, the young, especially, feeling characteristically "invincible", and supremely "aware" of "what it's all about"...engage in unprotected sex, running the extreme risks of unintended pregnancies.

They are, ofttimes, school drop-outs, dependent upon their mothers or grandparents for sustenance, and the care of the children. Minimum-wage jobs are the norm...(if they work, at all!)...and, their youth, and futures, are, pretty much over.

The nation is left with that old adage of "babies having babies"...with neither having the proper guidance in life to know how to go-about carving-out a positive place in society. For these child/mothers, the births of babies is a quick game of "playing with dolls"; and then the novelty of it all, complete with smelly diapers, and getting-up in the wee-hours, palls in a wink!

Substance-abuse...gang membership...more promiscuity...ignorance...depression...lawlessness...dependence upon welfare and hand-outs...and a general downward-spiral result for these people, their babies, and the nation's future.

Were it not for the careless...the reckless...the intemperate...and, the ignorant...there'd be no need for abortions. But, considering what happens when unwanted children are brought into this world, it is an unfortunate, but preferable alternative to the burgeoning "armies" of kids born each and every day, in America...who will know nothing of Life, except hardship...want...violence...isolation...hopelesness...and, a lot of sadness.

The anti-abortion zealots evidently prefer these terribly maladjusted souls, who will doubtless make-up America's future.

Frankly...I cringe at the thought...for they carry the potential to inflict terror and loss upon this country, which would make Al-Qaeda blush...

Regardless of whether you're pro-life or pro-choice, murdering a 60-something-year-old is never right. Instead of fighting amongst ourselves, we need to redirect that energy to problems we all want to solve. For instance, the US should be doing more to address severe poverty throughout the world.
The Borgen Project has good info on the estimated cost of ending global poverty:

$30 billion: Annual shortfall to end world hunger.

$550 billion: U.S. Defense budget.

pretty amazing that this murderer of Dr. Tiller felt it was appropriate for him to murder someone. isn't he upset because Dr.Tiller was "murdering" unborn children? yet, it's okay for him to murder? kinda hypocritical. not only did he murder him, he murdered him in a church. well, i guess he thought it was eye for an eye or that he was saving millions of unborn babies so it would balance out, one old man vs. millions of unborn babies? why is that everyone wants to impose their views on everyone else. if i want to have an abortion why is it anyone else's business? i don't understand anti-abortion views. anti-abortionists would rather see a baby wrapped up in a plastic bag, suffocated at birth by a mother who doesn't want it? they would rather see a baby drowned in a toilet because the baby fell in there and they'd rather it drown than take care of it? they would rather the baby be left alone to fend for itself it's entire life, grow up on the streets, and become criminals or drug addicts or bitter adults that become child abusers? just not sure what make it anyone's business what i do with my body? if i have an abortion and I go to hell for murdering my b aby, isn't that my choice? this poor man, leaves behind a family but I guess that's okay too? I just can't seem to understand why people can't mind their own business. If abortion is a sin, I will have to face that judgement in front of God......I shouldn't have to account for that to another man.

TO KILL A MAN AT HIS CHURCH, IS A VERY ANIMALISTIC ACT, THE DEATH PENALTY IS WARRANTED!
NOW WE KILL BECAUSE WE DISAGREE, WE KILL BECAUSE
OF SOMEONE'S JOB, THERE IS NO EXCUSE TO KILL
SOMEONE!
AMERICA WE HAVE TO DO BETTER!
MAY GOD HELP THIS MAN'S FAMILY!
THIS MADNESS MUST STOP!
