Dr. Tiller’s assassin, Scott Roeder, plans to auction off autographed drawings that highlight the murder

Maybe Charles Manson should have done the same thing, auctioned off a few pieces of jailbird art. Maybe drawn a ‘David and Goliath’ scene, where Goliath’s head is inscribed with the name ‘LaBianca’. Maybe Mark Chapman, too, with Goliath then ‘Lennon.’ Why shouldn’t they make money for their own legal defenses? By selling penitentiary art to their fawning admirers that brags about the killings?

Online auction to raise funds in Scott Roeder case

An Army of God manual. A prison cookbook compiled by a woman doing time for abortion clinic bombings and arsons. An autographed bullhorn.

These are among the items that abortion foes plan to auction on eBay and other Web sites in a fundraiser for Scott Roeder, the Kansas City man charged with killing Wichita abortion doctor George Tiller . .

“They’re wonderful pencil art drawings,” she said. “They were done in jail.”

One is a sketch of David and Goliath.

“It has David with a slingshot in one hand and the head of Goliath in his other hand and the name ‘Tiller’ on Goliath’s forehead,” she said. “On the corpse on the ground, it says ‘child-murdering industry’ . .”

Another item to be auctioned, Leach said, is a collection of recipes compiled in prison by Shelley Shannon, the Oregon woman who shot and wounded Tiller in 1993 and was later convicted in a series of abortion clinic arsons and bombings.

UPDATE: eBay stopped the auction.
