I wasn't discussing from where anyone gets their respect, I was challenging your questioning of whether or not abortion doctors such as George Tiller are doctors. You made some claim up about them not being doctors unless they are healers, which I challenged.

It is my belief that his actions are based on a belief that foetuses are not humans, which is unrelated to whether or not whether or not his job is to be a healer.
