Update: Click here to find out more "what to do's" in the wake of Dr. Tiller's death.

Dr. George Tiller, an outspoken advocate for abortion rights, and one of only a few physicians in the U.S. to perform the rarely- used late-term abortion procedure, was shot dead in church. The shooter, who is in custody, is a coward, a hypocrite, and, in some circles considered a domestic terrorist.

What to do? Educate yourself on late-term abortion by reading a first-hand account here. Donate to Medical Students for Choice (h/t Feministing).

My favorite quote by him?
“My feeling is that prenatal testing without prenatal choice is medical fraud.”
And one from the comments on Jezebel:
"Late term abortions are sometimes medically necessary. They save lives. That doctor was a hero."

May his killer be brought to justice and may this be a huge pox on the fanatical anti-choice extremists and their hateful words and deeds.
