a.)    A video from the vigil last evening in Union Square. Thank you to everyone who came and we all stand together against this abominable act of hatred.

b.)    An end to hateful rhetoric: A Boston Globe follow-up article to the murder of Dr. Tiller.

c.)    A link to Feministing’s follow-up round-up and cartoon.

d.)   A call for action: an opinion piece from the New York Times

Attorney General Eric Holder says the United States Marshal Service will begin protecting certain abortion clinics and doctors. Mr. Holder should consider taking the additional step of revitalizing the National Task Force on Violence against Health Care Providers that former Attorney General Janet Reno established during the Clinton years. There must be a sustained focus by federal and state officials to prevent further acts of violence and intimidation. If it turns out that additional laws are needed, Congress should take action.”

e.) And, on the other side of things, a few terrible comments from Randall Terry (founder of Operation Rescue, an anti-abortion group). Read the article about this at Feministing.
