Prominent late-term abortion provider George Tiller was shot and killed Sunday in a church where he was serving as an usher, his attorney said. The gunman fled but a city official said a suspect is in custody.
Anti-abortion groups denounced the shooting and stressed that they support only nonviolent protest.
"We are shocked at this morning’s disturbing news that Mr. Tiller was gunned down," Troy Newman, Operation Rescue’s president, said in a statement. "Operation Rescue has worked for years through peaceful, legal means, and through the proper channels to see him brought to justice. We denounce vigilantism and the cowardly act that took place this morning." EarthLink – Top News
These are the typical “politically correct” comments that frequently come from the criminal abetting anti-abortion community. I watch the news and I witness the protests by their groups and I see that the vast majority of these murdering criminal bastards come from within their organizations. Public statements like those above are simply fluff for public consumption. I believe that privately the anti-abortion leadership encourages directly or indirectly the kind of premeditated murder that the citizens of Wichita witnessed today.
