    MANY PEOPLE in the field of genetics are mourning the murder of Dr. George Tiller as the loss of a personal friend. I'm one of them. I first met George in 1987 at a conference of the National Society of Genetic Counselors, where I was executive director for 18 years until 2005. He and his incredibly loyal staff - whom he treated with great generosity - had developed a procedure that provided excellent medical care but also respect and emotional support to the women who came to him for help.

    Washington, DC ( -- Former abortion practitioner Bernard Nathanson, who has since converted to the pro-life position, was a former mentor of George Tiller, the slain late-term abortion practitioner. In a new interview, Nathanson said he was surprised that Tiller never became pro-life himself because of new medical technologies.Nathanson is no stranger to the abortion industry, having done more than 75,000 abortions himself during the 1960s and 1970s and presiding over one of the nation's premier pro-abortion groups, NARAL.He earned widespread praise from the pro-life movement for his movie "Silent Scream" which showed the advancement in ultrasound technology and...

    ENID, Oklahoma, June 11, 2009 ( - A former employee of Kansas late-term abortionist George Tiller has shared how her gruesome experiences at Tiller's abortion facility drove her away from her pro-choice views and into a life of activism for the rights of the unborn.Luhra Tivis, who was hired as a temp worker for Tiller and eventually became a full employee for one year, discussed her story Tuesday with the Enid News & Eagle in the wake of Tiller's death May 31. Tiller was shot and killed while serving as an usher in his Lutheran church. His family has stated that...

    Wednesday's shooting at the Holocaust Museum in D.C.—the second attack by a domestic terrorist in two weeks—killed one and left others injured. As details on the suspect, a white supremacist leader, come to light, a controversial government memo on right-wing terror earlier this year deserves another look. To the nation's horror, a much-maligned Department of Homeland Security memo on right-wing extremism is looking more accurate by the day. With news of a horrific incident of domestic terrorism Wednesday at the Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C., the second major attack by a far-right gunman in less than two weeks, the...

    Abortion on demand: empowerment -- or bamboozlement -- of women? Last week's murder of Dr. George Tiller, probably the world's most committed abortion provider, evoked a storm of emotive rhetoric from familiar antagonists in the never-quite-dormant abortion debate over "rights." Those advocating for an unborn child's right to live once again faced off against those advocating for a woman's right to terminate a life within her own body. There's a third side to the debate that gets short media shrift: emerging knowledge about medical risks surrounding induced abortion (IA). Throughout 40 years of highly publicized ideological squabbling, researchers in the...

    During the persecution of Christians in the reign of Marcus Aurelius, the Roman prefect Rusticus was frustrated by the serene equanimity of the Christian convert Justin, a Platonic philosopher. The Romans considered Christianity a superstitio parva (a perverse superstition) and classified its morality as immodica (immoderate) for, among other things, refusing to abort the unborn and "expose" the newly born. Bereft of rational arguments against Christians, Nero blamed them for burning Rome, as some would blame the Jews for the bubonic plague. The demagogic policy, updated by Lenin and made a political craft in our day, was "never let a...

    Narrative from the first person by Gunsareok with considerable and insightful input from BufordP and Mr. and Mrs. Trooprally. If the public were asked to identify George Tiller, aka Tiller the Baby Killer, there’s little doubt that, after the “mainstream” news coverage of last week, many would be able to do so. But what about Private William Long, killed at a Little Rock Army recruiting center just a day after Tiller was killed at church? And no doubt that fewer still would be able to identify Private Quinton Ezeagwula, severely wounded in the same incident. This was the motivation for...

    Washington, DC ( -- Nebraska-based late-term abortion practitioner LeRoy Carhart, a colleague of slain late-term abortion practitioner George Tiller, says he plans to do such abortions in Kansas. With the Tiller family announcing that it will permanently close his abortion center, Carhart may open up his own business.Carhart indicated he would do late-term abortions but would not say whether he would do them from an existing facility or would open his own abortion center somewhere in the state.He insisted in an interview with the Associated Press that "there will be a place in Kansas for the later second- and...

      With a pro-abortion president in the White House, new sub-groups in the broader "culture of death" are coming into view. One of them is dark, indeed.   Take two recent events: Dr. George Tiller is compared to Martin Luther King, Jr. The president of Catholics for Choice attacks a political appointee, Alexia Kelley, who defended Obama's abortion record before the nation's Catholic voters.   As head of Catholics in Alliance with the Common Good, Alexia Kelley was second only to Doug Kmiec in making Obama's record on abortion palatable to Catholics. Aren't these two organizations supposed to be...

    Caught in a Crossfire I write to you, not because I really expect you to repent. I write to you because you are a representative of others who are afflicted by the same revolutionary mentality. I write also to the churches that may have men and even women who think like you inside their own congregations. I would warn every church that has someone like you voicing such opinions publicly to excommunicate that person immediately. Because if people like Paul J. Hill go out to wreak their private vengeance -- their self- ordained, self-anointed vengeance -- against others in this...

    Of everything I read about the June 6 funeral of late-term abortionist George Tiller, I thought this was the most telling, from the New York Times: But for the most part, Dr. Tiller's funeral focused less on his work than on his life with his family and friends. The word abortion was never uttered. ... Clearly they all knew: Tiller was murdered for his "life's" work, but the reason was unmentionable? Sad. Even in death George Tiller's "vocation" was anathema. Imagine eulogizing anyone else murdered for a cause without extolling that for which they were slain. On the contrary, why...

    PHILADELPHIA, June 10, 2009 ( - Operation Rescue said today that it is appalled to learn that Philadelphia Women's Center gave away free abortions on Tuesday as a means of "honoring" slain late-term abortionist George Tiller. "There seems to be no comprehension of the value of human life with these people. Killing babies for free to honor someone who was murdered can only be described as sick," said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. The abortion facility told the media that an unspecified number of abortions were done free of charge, but there are no further plans to offer additional free...

    Non-Violent Resistance I am in favor of non-violence and non-violence resistance. I have written two books about it: "Trespassing for Dear Life" and "When Justice Is Aborted." Gandhi won, not because he used violence, but because he used non-violence, and his opponents used violence against him. The strategy of non-violence works because it calls forth the worst manifestations of the evil in the hearts of those against whom the non-violent protest is aimed. The public can see the police clubbing the protestors. They can see them breaking their arms dragging them out, throwing them into paddy wagons, putting them into...

    In a wistful "Postcard: Wichita" report in Time magazine, David Von Drehle mourned how that Kansas town became the epicenter of protests and controversy over the late-term abortions of murdered abortionist George Tiller. (It's not like Crawford, Texas, ached for Cindy Sheehan, either, but she was more to Time's liking.) And he strangely suggested that first-trimester or second-trimester babies are somehow "abstract" on a moral scale: Tiller was the rare physician willing to follow America's ambivalence about abortion to its ragged edge. In his drab clinic here with hospital beds in the basement, Tiller performed not only comparatively abstract early...

Many mourners wore those buttons to his funeral June 6 at College Hill United Methodist Church, Wichita, Kan. Tiller was shot and killed the previous Sunday morning before worship at nearby Reformation Lutheran Church, where he was a member. "Attitude is everything … but not our attitude," said the Rev. Lowell R. Michelson, Tiller's pastor, during the funeral sermon. "God's attitude … an attitude of love." "God...
