Okay, folks, this is merely a preliminary to something I will blog more extensively on when I have slightly more material to work with.
As it is, Dr. George Tiller was shot to death in the lobby of a church today on his way to worship.
He was the only late-term abortion provider in the state of Kansas, and probably for a radius of a couple hundred miles. I understand that many women came from surrounding states for Dr. Tiller’s services, and that both Dr. Tiller and his clinic were persecuted for providing these health care services to women. They were taken to court numerous times, and Dr. Tiller was just cleared two months ago of the 19 misdemeanor charges most recently brought against him.
Dr. Tiller had been shot and injured once before for providing abortion services.
And yet, no one gets shot in the U.S. for refusing women birth control. No one.
RIP, Dr. Tiller. I hope there is someone as courageous as you to fill your shoes, for the sake of all women in the American Midwest.
