Dr. George Tiller, husband, father to 4, gradfather to 10, was shot and killed yesterday while ushering at his Wichita, Kansas church.
Dr. Tiller has been a target of the extreme anti-abortionists for decades. He survived an attempt on his life in 1993. Pulic figures such as Bill O’Reilly have been all but calling for his murder as Dr. Tiller was one of the remaining physicians in the USA to perform late-term abortions for women carrying fetuses with severe birth defects or for health reasons of the mother.
We are saddened by the loss of a man who cared for so many women who did not quit even when his life was endangered. Thank you Dr. Tiller for all you have done for us.
