George Tiller was shot dead this morning at his church. If his name sounds familiar to you, it is likely because of the controversy surrounding his performance of late term abortionist. This earned him the nick name of 'Tiller the baby killer' from some pro-lifers. A suspect is in custody.
No official motive has been confirmed, but it is widely suspected that it has to do with Tiller's abortion work. If that is the case, Tiller's death would be the first such death in over a decade in this country.
