    The recent documentary “After Tiller” portrayed late-term abortionists in a sympathetic light. Its directors assumed that Dr. Tiller was a champion of women who provided quality healthcare in his Wichita abortion clinic. However, the pro-life group Operation Rescue has compiled some disturbing stories from some of his patients. A coerced abortion A young woman identified as “Patient T” was 17 when her parents brought her to Dr. Tiller’s clinic. She did not want an abortion, but her parents gave her no alternative. From the time she arrived at the clinic, Patient T was looking for an escape route. She saw...

    The documentary After Tiller portrayed late-term abortionists in a flattering light, highlighting the tragic stories of women who were carrying dying or disabled unborn babies. Dr. George Tiller, who the documentary is named after, was assassinated by a man who claimed to be “pro-life.” All established pro-life organizations condemned the murder, including Live Action.But was Dr. Tiller a kind, compassionate hero who relieved women of the burden of carrying dying babies? The reality is far different.The pro-life group Life Dynamics has a recording of a speech Dr. Tiller made to the National Abortion Federation in which he said: We have...

    This is quite the bold move. As a third rate, tax subsidized broadcasting outfit with a viewership in the single digits, I’d expect you’d try your best to fly under the radar. There is, after all, no conceivable reason for you to exist, nor is there a solid justification for spending tax money to keep afloat an irrelevant television channel that has long since drowned amid a sea of a million other channels. Sure, you “only” bring in about 40 million dollars a year in tax money, but why draw attention to the scam? It might be a good 460...

    WICHITA, KS, June 13, 2014 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Dr. Cheryl Chastine, the successor of George Tiller at a Wichita facility, says she became an abortionist out of “a moral obligation” and that if she stopped performing abortions, it would constitute “a victory for terrorism.” “When I was in medical school I got the message that there is a shortage of abortion providers and that, therefore, if more of us, including myself, did not become providers, that there would be women who [would] not be able to access abortion when they needed it.

    WICHITA, KS, (Operation Rescue) – On Thursday morning, an angry man jumped out of his vehicle and threatened to shoot pro-life activist Mark Gietzen outside the building where late-term abortionist George Tiller once operated in Wichita, Kansas. Gietzen, director of the Kansas Coalition for Life, was setting up a pro-life display early on Thursday, November 21, when the man drove into the abortion clinic parking lot and dropped off a woman. As he left, Gietzen offered him pro-life literature and urged the man to go back and bring the mother of his baby out of the clinic. As the man...

She said “abortion care” is “about motherhood, because by and large women coming in to have abortions are concerned about the kind of life and the future for their children.” “Women are thinking...

    More proof that liberals - especially those who scuttle through the halls of the Senate - are pro-abortion. As the one-year anniversary approaches of the martyrdom of St Tiller murder of infamous late-term abortionist George Tiller, Sen. Reid (most likely at the behest of pro-abortion groups) read a tribute statement on the floor of the Senate today. How about a Senate tribute for the 1.2 million unborn babies aborted since May 31, 2009? Utterly despicable. May God have mercy on all our souls.

    This past Friday, Scott Roeder was sentenced to life in prison for last May’s shooting death of George Tiller, one of the few doctors in the country who performed partial-birth abortions. Tiller was a doctor only in the legal sense of the word. He was not a healer, but a killer—a callous monster who could hold a baby in his hands as the child emerged from the mother, puncture its skull, and suck its brains out. Tiller was a mass murderer, though the unjust laws that govern that practice in America sanctioned his butchery. It does not follow, however, that...

The January 19th lead in the Kansas City Star captures the giddy spirit of the hounding, “Phill Kline disobeyed the Kansas Supreme Court, misled judges and withheld information from a grand jury, according to an ethics complaint made public Tuesday.” The state Supreme Court has been hectoring Kline for years. One earlier sanction was so gratuitous that it prompted the Court’s...

There just isn't any question about it; in fact, it doesn't need to be stated because it's so obviously the truth.

There is no dispute about Scott Roeder's admitted guilt. On May 31, 2009, he shot Tiller as the doctor was talking...

The second was the dispiriting saga of the recently murdered late-term abortionist Dr. George Tiller.  What the two stories have in common is that each was consciously and completely mistold by the major media. The media did this for one particular reason: They want their audiences to envision the face of the pro-life movement not as young, diverse, passionate, and idealistic, but...

    WASHINGTON, DC, October 26, 2009 (LifeSiteNews.com) -- Last Friday's episode of Law & Order on NBC, entitled "Dignity," has infuriated pro-abortionists while pleasantly surprising pro-lifers with an unexpectedly even-handed treatment of the issue of abortion.  Ripping its plot from recent headlines, "Dignity" begins with the murder of late-term abortionist Dr. Walter Benning (Matthew Boston) during a church service.  Although the episode has a disclaimer stating that the story is fictional, its initial outline closely matches the case of the late-term abortionist Dr. George Tiller, who was shot and killed in a church in Wichita, Kansas, on May 31st.  After the...

    A Virginia anti-abortion activist has sent a scathing letter to the church of slain Wichita abortion provider George Tiller, telling pastors they “brought damnation” onto themselves for failing to rebuke the “babykilling.” The Rev. Donald Spitz, a longtime advocate of the belief that killing abortion doctors is an act of justifiable homicide, said he also mailed a letter to College Hill United Methodist Church, which offered its larger sanctuary to Tiller’s family for his funeral. Tiller was shot to death in his church on May 31 while serving as an usher. Scott Roeder of Kansas City awaits a Jan. 11...

    Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- The International Federation of Planned Parenthood Foundation gave slain late-term abortion practitioner George Tiller its highest award over the weekend. The international abortion business honored Tiller posthumously in Washington months after he was shot and killed in his Kansas church. Planned Parenthood gave Tiller its Medal of Honor for "outstanding individual contribution to sexual and reproductive health." According to a Wichita News report, Tiller's widow Jeanne accepted the award on her late husband's behalf. Alexander Sanger, grandson of Margaret Sanger, the woman who founded Planned parenthood and who has come under fire for having racist views...

    BELLEVUE, Neb. | At the end of a day of performing one abortion after the next after the next, LeRoy Carhart phrases the question himself. “Do I think I’ll get shot? I hope not,” the physician says. “Is it a possibility? I think it’s a very, very good possibility.” Meantime, the potbellied military retiree, grandfather and horse lover carries on the same steady abortion business that has defined, dominated and directed his life for the last two decades. Now he stands at the most thinly manned front line in America’s abortion wars — almost daring the opposition to stop him...

    Abortion rights activists are working to rebuild a coalition in Kansas following the death of one of the nation's few late-term abortion providers and the closure of his political action committee. Dr. George Tiller was shot and killed May 31 at his church, and his family has since closed his Wichita clinic. ProKanDo, the political action committee he founded and funded, was closed in mid-June upon the request of the Tiller family, its former director, Julie Burkhart said. But even before his closure of ProKanDo, the political action committee had been struggling to find someone in Kansas willing to take...

    What is the ultimate end of growing control? There have been several forms of government oppression throughout history: absolute monarchy, Communism, fascism, Nazism, and Islamofascism (such as the Taliban), to name some of the more infamous examples. So an accurate view of the modern positions of Right and Left would place anarchy at the extreme right, totalitarianism at the extreme left. In the years following the American Revolution, the Founders of this nation desired to create a system of government that was a perfect balance between these two extremes. Their desire was to create a federalist republic that would protect...

    The culture of death continues to claim victims, this time abortionist George Tiller. The tragedy of his murder is compounded by the obvious contradiction of someone killing him in the name of life. Perhaps it should not surprise that murder is seen as the answer in a society which devalues life. Protecting life is the foundation for a republic such as our own. Indeed, the most fundamental liberty is to life itself. Tiller's murder obviously violates both a commitment to life and the rule of law. No free society can survive if its members believe themselves authorized to mete out...

    In a recent letter to the editor, a writer called all of the O'Reillys, the Terrys and all other visceral voices condemning George Tiller as a baby killer just as guilty as the man who shot Tiller because they "poured hatred into the killer's heart." Is this the same kind of justification used to express all the pro-abortion lunatics running around this country, such as our president? I'm shocked that a person of any religion can justify the killing of babies right up to the moment they are being born and call the act "a medical procedure for those who...

    Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- Leading pro-abortion groups continue to devise every method possible to raise money by exploiting the shooting death of late-term abortion practitioner George Tiller. One group is running a signature ad campaign in Ms. magazine while another is selling bracelets like Lance Armstrong's.A new fundraising email from NARAL begins this way, "You've heard of wearing your heart on your sleeve. Well, in honor of Dr. George Tiller's work, we want you to wear yours on your wrist."NARAL is selling purple wrist bracelets with the message "Trust Women," a mantra of sorts of Tiller's that he used...
