Unusually political:

The Network has also received many requests from women who received care from Dr. Tiller and from activists in the reproductive justice community to set up a Fund in Dr. Tiller’s name. In response, we have established the George Tiller Memorial Abortion Fund to assist the women to whom George Tiller dedicated his life. The Fund will assist women in the second trimester to pay for abortion care, as well as pay for travel and lodging en route to providers. To donate to the Fund in Dr. Tiller’s name, please send contributions to:

George Tiller Memorial Abortion Fund
c/o National Network of Abortion Funds
42 Seaverns Ave.
Boston, MA 02130

You may also donate online at http://www.nnaf.org/tiller.html

Eight years after I worked at the local abortion clinic, I am still getting harassed. Please consider donating if you have the money, volunteering if you have the time, or speaking out if you have the balls.

My new bumper sticker will read: "I'M PRO-CHOICE AND I RETURN FIRE."

I have the greatest respect for anyone who is willing to put themselves on the line for that kind of work. I only wish I had the courage, because it's so important.

Godspeed, Dr. Tiller. I hope there's a doctor somewhere with the nerve to fill your shoes, because like it or not, it's a necessary service.

Somewhere I saw someone selling buttons that read I'M PRO-CHOICE AND I SHOOT BACK. I regret not buying a dozen or so.

Here is hoping that more people on both sides of this issue begin to value life in all of its stages.

i hope i can take some lessons from you.
