Today we remember Dr. Tiller who was murdered three years ago for saving women's lives. One of the few doctors in America performing late-term abortions, his life had been threatened many times. He was the constant target of anti-choice zealots.
It is appropriate to point out this murder was committed by those who espouse the so-called pro-life position, a misnomer if there ever was one.
There are plenty of blogs remembering Dr. Tiller today, including Abortion Gang. To get a good look at Dr. Tiller's life and work, there is a wonderful collection of articles here, on RH Reality Check.
Salon has done some good writing on Dr. Tiller. Check out some of their articles here and here, this latter one including video of Dr. Tiller and his thoughts about his career choice. Rolling Stone has also had excellent coverage of Dr. Tiller, including a 2004 article about the anti-choice crusade against him that seems to have vanished from the internet. It is referred to here, so you can get it's essence and if you are really interested, could probably track it down with some hard copy sleuthing.
Dr. Tiller trusted women. He was a true feminist. We remember.
