Now is the time to recognize the real threat to abortion providers and women seeking their services. Now is the time to recognize the extreme lack of abortion providers and resources for women. Now is the time to recognize Dr. Tiller as a hero, and perhaps in death he can truly change the face of the pro-choice movement and the future of abortion care.
Members of the reproductive health community, those working in clinics and as allies of clinics across the country, shared their shock and deep sadness at the loss of Dr. George Tiller today.
Anti-choice groups swiftly condemned the murder of Kansas abortion provider Dr. George Tiller, while Randall Terry stopped short of justifying the murder but failed to disavow the use of violence against providers.
of course everybody has the right to personally oppose abortion, the
killing and harassment of Dr. Tiller is beyond the pale. The hypocrisy of murder being the recourse of someone who is "pro-life" is so evident it barely needs discussing.
