This is a video from the USA about the murder of Dr Tiller.
By Patrick Martin in the USA:
Kansas doctor, target of anti-abortion fanatics, gunned down in Wichita
1 June 2009
Dr. George Tiller, an abortion provider who has been the target of repeated attacks by right-wing elements linked to the Kansas Republican Party, was shot to death Sunday morning at his Wichita church.
The gunman, described as a white male, fled the scene in a powder blue Ford Taurus, but was reportedly taken into custody by police later in the day in New Century, Kansas, about 170 miles northeast of Wichita.
Dr. Tiller, who was 67 years old, was murdered inside Reformation Lutheran Church, where he was a member of the congregation. Tiller was serving as a church usher while his wife sang in the choir. He is the fourth abortion doctor murdered by right-wing religious fundamentalists since 1993.
One of a handful of doctors willing to provide third-trimester abortions in Kansas, Tiller has been subjected to a series of abusive prosecutions and lawsuits by right-wing politicians, most of them Republicans, and was frequently targeted for death threats from the fascistic wing of the anti-abortion groups. His Wichita clinic was bombed in 1985, and he was shot by an anti-abortion fanatic in 1993, who wounded him in both arms. His clinic was vandalized last month, with tens of thousands of dollars worth of damage.
Refusing to be intimidated by this two-decade-long campaign of threats and provocations, Tiller continued to provide abortion services to women who frequently had no other recourse for hundreds of miles. His Women’s Health Care Services clinic is one of three US facilities that perform abortions after the 21st week of pregnancy.

Murderous anti-abortionists in the USA are organized in the Army of God. On its Internet site, to which I will not link, the Army of God gloats about the murder of Dr Tiller. It is some reflection on the state of free speech in the USA that the “Christian” terrorist Army of God has a web site; while Dr Tiller’s site seems to be off line.
The US political establishment tends to say that the Army of God supposedly does not exist … while wildly accusing Muslims and non-Muslims supposed to be Muslims of terrorist conspiracies which later turn out to be non-existent. The denials about the Army of God remind one a bit about former FBI head Herbert Hoover. Hoover denied that the mafia existed (he had a mafia connection himself).
