Suspect captured in killing of Kansas abortion doctor

In the medical field there are many specialties but Abortion Doctor is not one of them. Dr. George Tiller was a very qualified and caring Gynecologist who performed abortions along with delivering babies and Family Medicine. Please label him correctly in your articles.

Dr. Tiller was not an “abortion doctor” unless you also want to say he was a “pap smear doctor” or a “hysterectomy doctor.” There is no such medical specialty. He was an OB/GYN who provided a wide range of medical services to his patients. To describe him as any less is an insult to his memory.

Christian radicals are no better than the Islamic Taliban. If the Robertsons, Parsleys, Copelands, Hinns, et al, have their way we’d abolish the constitution and acknowledge no human rights or else face prosecution and “re-education” camps. Abortion is legal in this country, murder is not. When will Christian nuts understand that simple fact????? Quit promoting hatred in Jesus’ name you hypocrites!!!!!!!

 

There are “bad” doctors all over the world.
