Dr. George Tiller, a man who has put the health and safety of women above his own countless times was shot and killed, fucking gunned down, as he walked into church Sunday morning. From Cara:
Dr. Tiller was one of the few late-term abortion providers in the country. He had previously been shot, his clinic burnt down, harassed by ideological anti-abortion attorney generals, and threatened with death countless times.
He has survived this long to continue doing the important work that he believed in.
He and his commitment to women’s health will be dearly missed, and I grieve for his family.
At this time the suspect is not in custody, but here is the info for anyone in the Wichita area:
Police were looking for a blue Ford Taurus with a K-State vanity plate, license number 225 BAB. Police described him as a white male in his 50’s or 60’s, 6′1,” 220 lbs, wearing a white shirt and dark pants.
Jill has some info on several Pro-Choice organizations where you can donate in Dr. Tiller’s name.
Rest In Peace, Dr. Tiller.
And thank you.
UPDATE: Apparently an arrest has been made.
