Dr. George Tiller
Dr. George Tiller, a physician in Wichita KS, was killed today at his church by an anti-abortion terrorist. Police have a suspect in custody, and already some groups are crowing about how "the Doctor had it coming." Dr. Tiller was wounded in an earlier attack; his clinic has been bombed and defaced repeatedly (most recently, last month, when holes were cut in the roof and downspouts plugged). Perhaps the saddest thing about this murder is how completely unsurprising it is.
