Memories of Dr. Tiller

This post has some memories of Dr. George Tiller, the man murdered by an anti-abortion activist. It is important, I think, to humanize the victims in a case like this, to show the courage of a man who had been threatened and injured before in the fight for something he believed in.

I also recognize that those who are pro-life (I have some quibbles with that term, but will respect those who consider themselves so) believe deeply in what they are doing, and know it is painful to them to see continuing what they believe is murder. It would drive me crazy if I believed that. And I think only a tiny, tiny, percentage approve of Tiller's murder.

It is a painful, difficult, complex situation all around.
