Abortion doctor slain

Posted By on Sun, May 31, 2009 at 12:37 PM

George Tiller (pictured in Talking Points Memo photo), a Wichita doctor who was a lightning rod for "pro-life" protesters and who was shot in his clinic in 1993, was slain in his Lutheran church today, news outlets are reporting.

More here from Wichita.  NY Times has piece with byline including Joe Stumpe, formerly of D-G.

NY Times says a suspect in custody. UPDATE: Suspect would appear to come from "pro-life" position. There have been many acts of violence and terror by "pro-life" advocates against abortion providers. (Remember locally the Ryder Truck, symbol of the OKC bombing, parked in front of a clinic by a "pro-life" advocate as a little practical joke?) What's the record on choice advocates' acts of violence against anti-abortion advocates?
