Could you please, for fuck’s sake, stop using the phrase “abortion provider George Tiller”?
Seriously, he was a DOCTOR.
See the difference?
One is a title he earned through work and education, and the other is a service, one of many, that he provided under that title.
It is not the sum of his work, his heroics, or who he was. Referring to DR. Tiller as “abortion provider” or, I can’t believe I have to type this, “abortionist” just fuels the flames of the Anti-Choice jerks who want to paint him as some evil entity who deserved this horrible end.
He was a DOCTOR, who happened to be one of three people in the country to provide the type of abortions that others were too scared or bullied out of providing. A DOCTOR. A damned fine one at that who actually gave a rat’s ass about the people he was helping, who put their lives above his daily for years.
Let’s remember that, kay?
And thank you, again, DR. Tiller.
