Tragic death of Dr. George Tiller

Posted in Uncategorized by raisingwomensvoices on June 1, 2009

After being away for the weekend, I just found out the disturbing news about the murder of Doctor George Tiller. Tiller lived his life in the service of women and was one of the only late-term abortion providers in the country. A champion for women’s rights and an everyday hero, we lost an important man yesterday.

“The cold-blooded murder of Dr. George Tiller this morning in church is a stark reminder that women’s bodies are still a battleground, and health care professionals are on the frontlines.”
