Vigils for Dr. Tiller

Below is a list of vigils taking place around the country to honor Dr. George Tiller.  I ask that those of you who disagree with Dr. Tiller’s work and choices be respectful during this time.  These vigils are designed to be peaceful and are not designed to foster debate or discussion over pro-choice vs. pro life issues.  Thank you.

    Just got back from the vigil in Boston. It was incredible! A packed church filled with so many beautiful memories of Dr. Tiller.

    I encourage all of you to try and go to one if you can.
