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?

    Gospel and R&B singer and civil rights activist Mavis Staples, who has been inspiring fans with gospel-inflected freedom songs like "I'll Take You There" and "March Up Freedom's Highway" and the poignant "Oh What a Feeling" will come to Little Rock for the commemoration of the 60th anniversary of the desegregation of Central High.
  • Klan's president

    Everything that Donald Trump does — make that everything that he says — is calculated to thrill his lustiest disciples. But he is discovering that what was brilliant for a politician is a miscalculation for a president, because it deepens the chasm between him and most Americans.
  • On Charlottesville

    Watching the Charlottesville spectacle from halfway across the country, I confess that my first instinct was to raillery. Vanilla ISIS, somebody called this mob of would-be Nazis. A parade of love-deprived nerds marching bravely out of their parents' basements carrying tiki torches from Home Depot.
