EBay: No auction for suspect in Kansas doc's death

EBay: No auction for suspect in Kansas doc's death

Online retailer EBay is blocking an auction to raise money for the defense of the man accused of killing Kansas abortion provider George Tiller.
EBay said in a statement Tuesday the auction would violate its policy on "offensive material."
Scott Roeder is charged with first-degree murder in the May 31 shooting of Tiller at the doctor's Wichita church. Supporters of Roeder said they wanted to auction off items including an Army of God manual, which is an underground publication for anti-abortion militants that describes ways to shut down clinics, including bombing.
Dave Leach is an Iowa abortion opponent organizing the auction. He says he does not glorify violence, but that eBay's decision did not surprise him.
