Skip to comments.Dr. George Tiller: a physician who helped people in "desperate circumstances"(Freepers are "swill")

The murder over the weekend of Dr. George Tiller, one of a handful of physicians who performed late-term abortion, is an absolute tragedy. As Kristen wrote yesterday, many are in mourning and angry over this disgusting and hate-filled act.
This was an act of political aggression against a doctor who helped people who were in absolutely desperate circumstances:
Anti-choice activists often cast late-term abortions as the murder of a viable baby at the whim of a woman who doesn't wish to be inconvenienced, carried out by a doctor who looks at her and sees only cartoon dollar signs. They're egged on by relatively mainstream figures like Bill O'Reilly, who declared that Dr. Tiller "destroys fetuses for just about any reason right up until the birth date for $5,000." Such misinformation and outright lies about procedures that are in fact rare and only performed when medically necessary are what led anti-choice activists to call Tiller "America's Doctor of Death," and accuse him of running a "murder mill." The reality of what Dr. Tiller did, however -- helping women in absolutely desperate circumstances, when almost no one else would -- is what led one woman who had to terminate a wanted pregnancy because of a terrible late-term diagnosis to call the doctor and staff at his Women's Health Center "our heaven when we were living in hell."
This was a man who was treating patients in dire need of help. His cold-blooded murder for what looks like political and religious reasons is revolting. The justifications for his murder by the repugnant Randall Terry and the swill that is Free Republic are a stark reminder that the Americanized version of the Taliban are alive and well.

“helped people”??? No he helped himself....to all that blood ca$h at $5,000 a pop.
I wonder how many of Carla's babies similarly got shredded with a dull knife.
“The reality of what Dr. Tiller did, however — helping women in absolutely desperate circumstances, when almost no one else would”
Gee I wonder why no one else would help? Odd, huh?
a man who killed little ones in desperate circumstances — the circumstances being their mothers wished them dead
you realize of course it was legal to kill Jews in Poland — but it wasn’t right
Bill O’Reilly, who declared that Dr. Tiller “destroys fetuses for just about any reason right up until the birth date for $5,000.” Such misinformation and outright lies...
The only misinformation is the price quoted ... he often charged up to $10,000 if it was a really late abortion.
Carla you are dumber than dog crap. And I mean that sincerely.
Killing a child because you couldn't keep your legs shut is not a "desperate circumstance". Well, I shouldn't say that. Maybe to the narcissist it is but to normal people...not so much.
I suppose Carla is referring to the babies who's lives were terminated. Oh, wait...
Yeah, a woman who wants to be able to do her 'thing' without the result of motherhood is in a desperate circumstance. Disgusting.
One commenter there said, “Tiller did not kill babies, he preformed a service for desperate women or something to that effect.
#1. YES, YES he did. It has been explained just how he did it. Sucking brains out of a live human is killing.
#2. If one would be so desperate if they got pregnant, USE A CONDOM
or some form of birth control.
This is BS!
The doctor sees real money.
I know a couple on my block that waited 3 years to adopt a baby. I know a famous judge here in Chicago who adopted a crack baby and the kid is thriving. IU believe that a family could have been found for a baby who would become a late term victim of political agendas.
That's about as upside-down as it gets.
It was also legal once upon a time for one man to own another as property — but it wasn’t right.
I am still amazed he had such a standing in a church to have a position, even an usher. I think a church should welcome anyone and most do, but to be given a position while doing something like abortion for a living is incredible to me.
isn't chastity an option?
Out of all the articles I’ve read about Tiller and his killer, I haven’t read where exactly the bullet entered the body of the good doctor. His head? His heart?
What desperate circumstance or dire need could they have
that wouldn’t have been equally addressed by adopting out their child after birth?
damn good point
I heard it was between 5 and 21K...at 5K for 60,000 abortions that is about 300 mil.. not sure if I am right on the numbers...
I have talked to my doctor friends, who say at that point in the trimester it is almost never needed to do an abortion to save the mother’s life.
