Millstones Hung Around Your Neck

JFK making his speech to Houston area Protestant ministers
“I got a message for you Kathleen Sebelius: You’re a murderer, abortion is murder!” yelled the heckler as he was being escorted out of the room by campus police. The young activist told that he goes by the name of David Lewis. Alluding to Biblical scripture, Lewis also yelled across the room towards Sebelius, 
“We can better have millstones hung around your neck murderer.” Luke 17:2 states, “It would be better for him if a millstone were put around his neck and he be thrown into the sea than for him to cause one of these little ones [children] to sin.” Sebelius was heckled less than two minutes into her speech during an awards ceremony for Georgetown University’s Public Policy Institute’s graduating students. 
During the speech, Sebelius quoted John. F. Kennedy’s famous 1960 speech about his Catholic religion and views on the separation of church and state. spoke with Lewis outside the university’s gate. He said he is not a Georgetown student but is a member of a pro-life group called “The Society of Truth and Justice,” led by pro-life activist Randall Terry, who is running in the Democratic primary against Obama. Lewis said he was escorted off campus and asked by university authorities to sign a paper saying he could not come back to the institution for a year. Violating that agreement would get him arrested, he said.

If he thinks she is a murderer shouldn't he be doing more than yelling at her?
