The Murder of Abortion Doctor George Tiller

Hosted by

Scott Roeder is the lone suspect in Sunday's killing of Dr. George Tiller, the late-term abortionist gunned down in a Wichita, Kansas church on Sunday.  The impact of his impact on the right-to-life movement is still unclear, but previous violence has drastically reduced the availability of operations to terminate pregnancies. We hear about the continuing investigation into Tiller's murder and talk with advocates on both sides about his role as a doctor and as a symbol.
