Dr. George Tiller Murdered.

I don't know where to start. A doctor who provided legal medical services to women in crisis, women facing death, women who had been violated, has been harrassed throughout his career by media and anti-choice groups and finally killed when entering his church this morning. What does this say about our culture? About those who hold the life of an unborn fetus as more important than that of a woman? Dr. Tiller's murder is not only a tragedy for his family and loved ones but for the hundreds of women who relied on him to protect their health and their rights.
