WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - Media outlets are reporting that late-term abortion doctor George Tiller has been shot and killed at his church in Wichita, Kan.
Anonymous police sources told The Wichita Eagle other media that the 67-year-old doctor was killed Sunday morning at Reformation Lutheran Church.
Police spokesman Gordon Bassham would not confirm the victim's identity pending notification of relatives but said a 67-year-old "high-profile individual in the community" was shot and killed.
Tiller has been among the few U.S. physicians performing late-term abortions. His clinic has repeatedly been the site of protests for about two decades and he was shot and wounded by a protester in 1993.

What kind of “church” welcomes a partial-birth baby killer into its congregation?
not as I am.
Freep-mail me to get on or off my pro-life and Catholic List:
Please ping me to note-worthy Pro-Life or Catholic threads, or other threads of interest.
Obama Says A Baby Is A Punishment
Worse still will be the wrath of the thread police.
Sadly, this is not suprising, considering this is a repeat of history when in the years leading up to the Civil War, there was also the violence that was associated with the efforts to end slavery.
The pro-life movement isn't damaged by his death.
It was the actions of the aboritonist Tiller that ultimately led to his death.
Welcome the fairness doctrine.
I am sorry that we will all be painted as murderers;
I am sorry for the shooter and his family;
I am NOT sorry that this murdering POS is dead. Now he faces God’s justice.
Tiller in church- what kind of church?
Whoever killed this doctor did the wrong thing here. We are supposed to let God judge him.
On the other hand... I am wondering what kind of person thinks it is OK to kill late-term babies and still go to church?
Somebody performed an abortion on him.
Nothing to see here...move along.
He wasn’t really killed it was just a really late-term abortion.
re: the run up to the civil war.
Yes, shame there weren’t men like Obama around then that could have helped us find the “middle ground” on slavery. Maybe tax breaks to let the slaves get educated. Limits on the number of new slaves that can be brought to America.
Tax credits for actually freeing a slave. Maybe a slave lottery where once a month a slave drawn at random gets freed. Obama would have sought this middle ground........
Do not let the media drive the agenda!!
Proximity does not equal causality.
At least wait to find out if the person who shot him was not angry about some failed business deal or jilted lover or etc. before you assume it was about abortion.
There is no way to tell how many skeletons (literal and figurative) a fellow like that has in his closet.
This is bad. The Clinton presidency was on the road to utter failure when
the Oklahoma City bombing occurred. He used that event to regain
his footing. For sure, this will be used against pro-life people.
OK FOLKS...it is now time to come together on the right. As much as I do not like it when someone is killed, Tillers death is not what I am addressing here. The left will use this against the right (we are bad, terrorist, extremist, etc.). Our job is not to play defense, it is to NOT ALLOW them to box us in to begin with. You know they will try to lump us all together with the shooter. Be vigilant. Do not allow them to categorize us as one in the same!!! You now know how the game will be played, stand firm.
WHO KILLED HIM????? What LOUSY reporting...it doesn’t mention WHO KILLED HIM!!
It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.
To think that Doctor Tiller spent his short time here on earth as a paid assassin and now faces eternity having never come to Christ. What a horrible, horrible waste.
I guess when God told us to seek Him while He may be found He wasn't joking.
“An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth”
An extremely liberal ELCA church. Do not think that all Lutheran churches would have an active, impenitent abortionist as a member in good standing. This Lutheran pastor (LCMS) would not.
Perhaps it was a club-wielding member of the New Black Panther Party for Hope and Change.
That said, I believe the crooked politicians and lawyers who took Tiller's bribes and allowed him to stay in “business” are partly responsible for his death. If they had put him out of his horrible business like the should have, he'd be alive.
It could be a JEALOUS husband or an Sebellius supporter!!
Yeah, and against all conservative talk radio, just as it was then. The prospects for the fairness doctrine just got a huge boost.
Most of the Sunday talking head shows were pre-recorded. Tomorrow they’ll beat this and us to death. Go to DU for a preview.
It wouldn’t surprise me one bit if the killer turned out to be some militant pro-abortion lunatic who did this to get the exact result that we all know will happen.
On the positive side Tiller now really knows, without question, whether God considers abortion murder or not. At least for him the question has been answered.
probably a pro-abortionist seeking to stop the trend toward pro-life.
Sorry, but making him into a martyr does not help the pro-life side. Be wise as serpents and gentle as doves, Jesus said. This was not wise or prudent. And it’s not wise or prudent to defend it.
I sincerely hope this was not the act of a Pro-lifer. I would also not very much like to be George Tiller as he faces the Living God. Forgiveness, though, is always a possibility. I will pray for his soul. I believe he will need it.
It was a classic Post Partum Abortion
I wonder if, from his new vantage point, he is seeing all the people he killed during his career.
Look....ANYONE could have killed him....or HAD him killed just for the reason that pro-lifers will be blamed!
ping -— This does not help the cause but it might save a few babies.
Stupid and senseless. This is never the way to promote the Pro Life cause. Murdering of this nature is wrong and only hurts the efforts to protect the unborn. Very counter-productive.
Maybe the husband of the girl he was seeing
Was he seeing a girl? Is he married? Was she married?? Could be a HIT JOB from the LEFT!
It wasn’t counter productive if the man was angry about Tiller playing house with his wife
This will add fuel to the perverted fire at Homeland Security. The shooter will be regarded as a terrorist, and those of us who think abortion is murder will be considered fellow terrorists. The good thing that might come out of this is that some babies will live, providing their mothers don’t find another willing accomplice to murder. The rest seems bleak indeed.
Churches do have the responsibility of barring unrepentant members from services, and that would include preventing a professional murderer from attending. In a sense, an abortionist would be the equivalent of a pagan priest performing human sacrifices to the god Ba’al, in his many forms.
hell if I know. I’m just saying it doesn’t Haff to do with his “profession” necessarily
EXACTLY! Could be ANYONE!
A true, saving faith in Christ results in positive works pointing to Christ. It was good that Dr. Tiller heard the Gospel, but it seems as if he were not willing to act on the Gospel. He was like the man who saw blood on his hands in the mirror and instead of washing his hands, turned the mirror away.
If this was done to prevent an abortionist from killing further, I would call this misguided zeal. The worst mass murderer of his time became Saint Paul. It is better not to kill, but to pray for reform. If the person will not reform, it is right to resist his evil. I draw the line at counter-murder. We are not the government nor are we soldiers in a declared war.
