Remembering Dr. Tiller

Posted by libhom Tuesday, January 19, 2010

The Blog for Choice Blogswarm got me thinking about the great American hero, Dr. George Tiller who was murdered by a Christian extremist on 5/31/09. Some technical problems at the time kept me from running a few photos I took at vigils in NYC after he was killed in a terrorist attack. I think it might be better to run them now anyway to remind people of a wonderful person and the prices some people have paid to support freedom and equality. (I apologize in advance for the quality of some of the images. They were taken with my cell phone camera.)

What This Is

This website was created as both a memorial to the lifework of Dr. George Tiller and as a living testimony to the courageous lives of abortion providers.

Here you will find stories of individuals who have dedicated their lives to making abortion safe, legal, healthy, and accessible to women and girls. These people may be nurses, counselors, escorts, volunteers at abortion funds, or abortion doctors themselves. You will not see the faces of these providers to protect their safety. What you will see is the story they decide to share - how they came to abortion work, what their function is at their abortion clinic, or their personal abortion story. We want to humanize these individuals to convey the kindness, courtesy, justice, love, and respect they have for women and the health care choices women make. We share our stories in hopes of ending clinic violence, to alleviate the shame associated with the abortion experience, and as an homage to Dr. Tiller's outstanding and courageous life work.

Please respect this space as one of compassion, dignity and love. We do not cover our faces out of shame. We do so to recognize an unfortunate aspect of the lives of abortion providers -- we must always be wary of our safety. No one knew this better than Dr. Tiller.
