This is just sad and horrifying.

Talk about domestic terrorism.

The man had already survived one previous assassination attempt and kept on working.

The wackjobs liken him to Dr. Mengeles. I just do not understand.

Sometimes I wonder whether Bill O'Reilly and Randall Terry ever feel a qualm about their influence in events like this. Probably not.

Dr. Tiller was such a courageous man. I hope there are other doctors brave enough to take over his work.

Thank you for posting this. Yet another hero has been taken down. It is incredibly sad. To be a good doctor is an act of courage in these times, alas.

And just think of all the future artists and poets saved from the blood drenched hands of this horrible sub-human who called himself a Doctor, Good riddance to bad news.

How typical that you spew your hatred anonymously, whoever you are. I'll let your words stand, as representative of the violent, self-righteous, blinkered zealots who threaten civilized society. My name is Maria Browning, and I honor the courage and humanity of Dr. Tiller.
