Kansas abortion doctor shot dead at church
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.
A number of readers objected to our use of that two-word phrase to identify Tiller in our headlines: GBU Editor
