Here's the story from The Wichita Eagle:
George Tiller, the Wichita doctor who became a national lightning rod in the debate over abortion, was shot to death this morning as he walked into church services.Read the entire story HERE.
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...
Members of the congregation who were inside the sanctuary at the time of the shooting were being kept inside the church by police, and those arriving were being ushered into the parking lot. Witnesses are being transported downtown for interviews and other members of the congregation are slowly being released from inside the sanctuary.
Tiller has long been a focal point of protest by abortion opponents because his clinic, Women's Health Care Services at 5701 E. Kellogg, is one of the few in the country where late-term abortions are performed.
This is a tragedy. It is a tragedy that Dr. Tiller was murdered. It is a double tragedy that Dr. Tiller chose to use his medical credentials and training to perform abortions.
If you are pro-life remember that killing is not the way to advance the cause. I understand the moral outrage over abortion. I understand that it is the taking of innocent life. Unfortunately however it is still the law of our country and Christians are not called to be vigilantes who kill wrongdoers.
Unfortunately many in the media and many of our politicians will gladly lump all pro-lifers in the camp of crazed, violent lunatics.
