Abortion doctor gunned down in church

Doctor who performed late-term abortions shot at Kansas church

by

Dr. George Tiller, a Kansas doctor who became a centre of controversy in the U.S. for performing late-term abortions at his clinic, was shot and killed Sunday at church. The assassination took place shortly after Tiller arrived at his regular church; a suspect has been arrested. Tiller’s clinic was one of the few in the country that performed late-term abortions, and became a regular target of protests and attempted prosecutions. He had already survived one assassination attempt, in 1993, when he was shot in both arms.
