An Abortionist, a Pro-Life Zealot and Blame
The murder appears to be the act of a deranged man acting alone. So the efforts of pro-choicers to paint their pro-life foes as morally responsible for Tiller's death has the odor of political exploitation.
Tiller made his living "giving a choice" to women who want to end their pregnancies after 21 weeks, usually because of tests that showed fetal abnormalities. But Dr. Tiller was well-known to have provided late-term abortions to women for just about any reason they gave for wanting to end their pregnancy.
He ran one of the few remaining late-term abortion clinics in the U.S. and was probably the most famous and infamous abortionist in the world.
His murder has already put pro-life groups on the defensive with the media and pro-choicers. But Bill "No Spin" O'Reilly isn't backing down from his coverage of Tiller's history.
