Dr. George Tiller, the nation’s most famous abortionist and the subject of decades of protests and lawsuits, was shot to death today at his Wichita, Kansas church.
Tiller, 67, was shot just after 10 a.m. at Reformation Lutheran Church at 7601 E. 13th, where he was a member of the congregation. Witnesses and a police source confirmed Tiller was the victim. No information has been released about whether a suspect is in custody. Police said they are looking for white male who was driving a 1990s powder blue Ford Taurus with Kansas license plate 225 BAB. Homicide detectives and Sedgwick County District Attorney Nola Foulston have arrived at the church.
Operation Rescue has issued a statement deploring the murder, but over on Free Republic their supporters are hailing the death of a “satanist.” Pro-life groups have protested and blockaded Tiller’s clinic since the early 90’s. In 1993 Tiller was shot twice by an anti-abortionist who remains in prison for attempted murder.
