George Tiller: Abortion Doctor Shot In 1993, Clinic Bombed In 1985 (PHOTOS)

Posted: Updated:

Buried within the news today about George Tiller, the Kansas abortion doctor, who was gunned down while attending church, is a reference to the multiple times the doctor was attacked in the past.

From AP:

Tiller has been among the few U.S. physicians performing late-term abortion, making him a favored target of anti-abortion protesters. He testified that he and his family have suffered years of harassment and threats. His clinic was the site of the 1991 "Summer of Mercy" protests marked by mass demonstrations and arrests. His clinic was bombed in 1985, and an abortion opponent shot him in both arms in 1993
