Kansas abortion doctor George Tiller was murdered this morning at his church. His wife was singing in the choir at the time. He was shot to death as services began. A 51-year-old suspect, as yet unidentified by police, is in custody. Police are investigating whether he was associated with any specific anti-abortion groups.
Dr. Tiller was in the news recently because he was prosecuted by anti-abortion Kansas attorney general Phill Kline, for performing late-term abortions with improperly obtained second opinions. He was acquitted of all 19 charges in March, less than three months ago. His is one of the few women's health clinics in the country that will perform late-term abortions. "Prenatal testing without prenatal choices is medical fraud," Tiller once said.
This makes me sick. I've just given a big donation to Planned Parenthood in his honor.
