George Tiller's Story

"An Abortion Battle, Fought to the Death," proclaims the Sunday New York Times in a five-column front-page story above the fold with three photos.

The death is Dr. George Tiller's two months ago, May 31, in his church in Wichita, Kansas.

Today's report fills two inside pages describing him, his clinic and the thirty years of harassment that finally culminated in his death.

Here's one quotation:

"[After his father, mother, sister, and her husband died in a plane crash] he discovered his father had been performing significant numbers of illegal abortions, and before long women began turning to him for abortions, too, often under desperate circumstances."
