This is odd. According to anonymous police sources, George Tiller, a doctor known for performing late-term abortions, was shot and killed at his church.
Media reports say that abortion provider Dr. George Tiller has been shot and killed at his Wichita church.
Tiller has been a favored target of anti-abortion protesters, and he testified that he and his family have suffered years of harassment and threats. His clinic was the site of the 1991 "Summer of Mercy" protests marked by mass demonstrations and arrests. His clinic was bombed in 1985, and an abortion opponent shot him in both arms in 1993.
His family never thought this would happen.
The killer is still loose.
