"Prenatal testing without prenatal choices is medical fraud"
– George Tiller
There’s no point in sugar coating it, Dr. George Tiller was assassinated. Tiller is the fourth physician to be murdered by self-identified "pro-lifers" since 1993. And nobody can say they were surprised. Imagine if this guy’s name was Randall al-Terry:
"We grieve for him that he did not have time to properly prepare his soul to face God."
Al Zawahiri makes identical statements. Yet the media enables such malevolent stupidity when it just reports Tiller as a "late term abortion" doctor, like he sat around waiting to kill. THIS is what George Tiller provided:
Conjoined twins alone is not what was so difficult but the way they were joined meant that at best only one child would survive the surgery to separate them and the survivor would more than likely live a brief and painful life filled with surgery and organ transplants. We were advised that our options were to deliver into the world a child who’s life would be filled with horrible pain and suffering or fly out to Wichita Kansas and to terminate the pregnancy under the direction of Dr. George Tiller.
We made an informed decision to go to Kansas. One can only imagine the pain borne by a woman who happily carries a child for 8 months only to find out near the end of term that the children were not to be and that she had to make the decision to terminate the pregnancy and go against everything she had been taught to believe was right. This was what my wife had to do. Dr. Tiller is a true American hero. The nightmare of our decision and the aftermath was only made bearable by the warmth and compassion of Dr. Tiller and his remarkable staff.
Bill O’Reilly, the term for Dr. Tiller was hero.
