I Remember Dr. Tiller

On May 31, 2009, Dr. George Tiller was murdered, in his church, by a terrorist. These are the three pieces I wrote following his murder. One was written as an op-ed piece for the Conway Daily Sun newspaper.

US Physician Killed by Terrorist
This Murder was Allowed to Happen
The Tearful Troy Newman

Today I am remembering Dr. Tiller, and feeling the anger all over again. I still have the same questions I had 3 years ago:

At what point will terrorists stop having more rights than women and doctors?

At what point will we take domestic terrorism at abortion clinics seriously?

Exactly. Was discussing this same topic yesterday with a good friend. "They" don't want abortions, "they" don't want to prohibit birth control, "they" won't adopt the thousands of unwanted babies available, "they" don't want social services to assist single mothers or unwanted babies. "They" of course being the Republican Party and it's bizarre following comprising terrorists and other such headcases are classic example of hypocrisy and as a result, our nation is in freefall.
