Anti-Abortion Terrorist Kills Dr. George Tiller

Dr. George Tiller Murdered at Church

Dr. George Tiller, a Kansas doctor whose clinic received national attention for performing late-term abortions, was shot to death as he entered his Wichita church on Sunday. Media reports said the suspected killer fled the scene in a blue Taurus. Police described him as a white male in his 50s or 60s. (Suspect has been caught.)

Tiller has been among the few U.S. physicians performing late-term abortion, making him a favored target of anti-abortion protesters. He testified that he and his family have suffered years of harassment and threats. His clinic was the site of the 1991 "Summer of Mercy" protests marked by mass demonstrations and arrests. His clinic was bombed in 1985, and an abortion opponent shot him in both arms in 1993.

Dr. Tiller has been a target of anti-abortion terrorist groups for years, and was frequently called "Tiller the Baby Killer" by Bill O'Reilly on Fox News. Operation Rescue had a "Tiller Watch" web site.
