Later, at the conclusion of her interview of two associates of the late Dr. Tiller, Diane Sawyer seemed to choke up. ABC News reporter Jeffrey Kofman was on the scene in Wichita, Kansas.

    A 51-year-old Kansas man was charged with first-degree murder late Sunday in the death of a physician whose Kansas women's clinic frequently took center stage in the U.S. debate over abortion, authorities said. Dr. George Tiller was shot and killed while serving as an usher at his Wichita church Sunday morning, according to police. Tiller was one of the few U.S. physicians who still performed late-term abortions and had survived a 1993 shooting outside his clinic. Scott Roeder from the Kansas City, Kansas, area is being held without bond in the Sedgwick County Adult Detention Facility, according to the sheriff's...

    U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder dispatched the U.S. Marshals Service to protect “appropriate people and facilities around the nation” in the wake of the killing Sunday morning of late-term abortion provider Dr. George Tiller in Wichita, Kan. Likely top candidate for federal protection: Boulder physician Warren Hern, believed to be the last remaining doctor in the world to provide late-term abortions. Hern, director of the Boulder Abortion Clinic, told The Colorado Independent that Tiller’s assassination is the “absolutely inevitable consequence” of decades of anti-abortion fanaticism. “Every doctor that does abortions has been under an assassination threat for decades,” Hern said...

    The suspect in custody for the slaying of Wichita abortion doctor George Tiller was a member of an anti-government group in the 1990s and a staunch opponent of abortion... ...Those who know Roeder said he believed that killing abortion doctors was an act of justifiable homicide. "I know that he believed in justifiable homicide," said Regina Dinwiddie, a Kansas City anti-abortion activist who made headlines in 1995 when she was ordered by a federal judge to stop using a bullhorn within 500 feet of any abortion clinic. "I know he very strongly believed that abortion was murder and that you...

    "..Dr. Tiller’s murder is an enormous loss for our movement and for women and their families across America. He provided abortions to women late in their pregnancy and under some of the most difficult medical circumstances. Dr. Tiller had been harassed by abortion opponents for much of his career – his clinic was burned down, he was shot in both arms by an abortion protestor, and he was recently targeted for investigation by Phill Kline in Kansas, with a jury acquittal coming just a few months ago. None of this stopped George Tiller from his commitment to providing women and...

    About 10 anti-abortion protesters gathered across the street from a downtown Wichita vigil where supporters of George Tiller remembered the slain abortion provider. The protesters outside Sunday's vigil were from Westboro Baptist Church in Topeka, which also pickets military funerals. The protesters held signs emblazoned with such messages as "Abortion is bloody murder" and "Baby killer in hell." The protesters and about 20 Tiller supporters shouted at each other. A large number of police officers stood by to make sure the scene stayed under control.

    The Fox News star had compared Tiller to a Nazi, called him a "baby killer," and warned of "Judgment Day" | When his show airs tomorrow, Bill O'Reilly will most certainly decry the death of Kansas doctor George Tiller, who was killed Sunday while attending church services with his wife. Tiller, O'Reilly will say, was a man who was guilty of barbaric acts, but a civilized society does not resort to lawless murder, even against its worst members. And O'Reilly, we can assume, will genuinely mean this. But there's no other person who bears as much responsibility for the characterization...

    President Obama, friend of former Weather Underground murderers, William Ayers and Bernadette Dohrn, finds it fashionable to condemn the killings of one violent anti-government type, but finds soirees with Ayers and Dorhn perfectly acceptable. Ayers anti-government group, the Weathermen, killed Walter Schroeder, Peter Paige, Edward O'Grady, and Waverly Brown. Scott Roeder, the name now being linked to the murder of baby killer, Dr. George Tiller, is a violent, exconvict who had served time on an explosives charge, and who had had a parole violation on that same charge. http://www.cjonline.com/stories/071097/parole.html Other information on Roeder includes his association with the Freeman, an...

    “A politically active Kansas doctor who performed late-term abortions, George Tiller, was shot and killed Sunday morning outside a church he attended in Wichita, according to local news reports.” According to Bill O’Reilly, former Kansas Governor Kathleen Sebelius, now Obama’s Secretary for Health and Human Services (HHS) “supported late term abortions by vetoing a bill that would have forced late term abortionist Dr. George Tiller (who has killed thousands of late term fetuses) to provide a specific medical reason for destroying a viable fetus.” O’Reilly has uncovered a list of monies that Dr. Tiller gave to Obama’s new Health and...
