America's most controversial abortion doctor, George Tiller, was shot and killed this morning outside the Reformation Lutheran Church in Wichita, Kan., on his way to Sunday services, according to ABC News affiliate KAKE and other sources.
Authorities were called to the shooting at the Reformation Lutheran Church shortly after 10 a.m., where Tiller is a congregant, according to KAKE. Tiller was pronounced dead at the scene shortly after emergency crews arrived.
Tiller, who ran the Women's Health Care Services clinic, a high-profile abortion clinic in Wichita, was one of the few doctors in the country that still performed late-term abortions. Just this month, Tiller's clinic was vandalized, according to KAKE.
Tiller has been a target of anti-abortion violence in the past. In 1985, his clinic was bombed, and in 1993, he was shot in both arms outside the clinic by Shelly Shannon.
Nice “pro-life” movement you’ve got there, Kansas.
The suspect is
still at large now in custody and is “a white male in his late 50s or 60s.”
There really are no words to adequately describe how heinous these sanctimonious phonies are. In a sane country these folks would be called what they are: domestic terrorists.
Meanwhile, showing there is no depth to the anti-choice crowd's stupidity, Priests for Life issued this ridiculous statement in which they suggest the shooter might have been
"an angry post-abortive man or woman ..."
