Last night I went with my wife to the Religious Coalition for Reproduce Choice memorial service for Dr. George Tiller last night at the National City Christian Church. It was a very moving service, with Dr. Leroy Carhart delivering the euology for his colleague and friend.
Most people didn't understand Dr. Tiller's work - they didn't understand the basic facts about what late-term abortions are, who has them and why. I urge you to read this article which explains the facts and the stories of women who have had these procedures. I would also recommend visiting IAmDrTiller.com, which collects the stories of the people who dedicate their lives to making abortion, safe, legal and accessible.
Individuals and private organizations will keep up the important work of clinic defense, but it is now up to the U.S. Justice Department, along with state and local governments, to take meaningful steps to monitor and prevent threats and acts of terrorism against abortion providers throughout the country.
