Abortion Doctor Killed in Church

Dr. George Tiller, one of the few U.S. physicians who performed late-term abortions, was shot and killed this morning at his Wichita church, where he was serving as an usher. The 67-year-old’s clinic was vandalized earlier this month—security camera wires and lights were cut, and the FBI was rumored to be investigating the incident. His clinic was been the site of protests for decades, and Tiller was acquitted in March on charges that he did not seek a proper second opinion before performing procedures in 2003. The suspected shooter, a 51-year-old man, is in custody in Johnson County.
