  Remembering an American hero: George Tiller

We continue to mourn the loss of our friend and colleague, Dr. George Tiller. Dr. Tiller was a dedicated physician who provided quality abortion care to women, at great personal sacrifice and risk. He is truly a hero to his fellow abortion providers and his patients. Dr. Tiller’s office is filled with letters from women, thanking him for the excellent, compassionate care he provided. Many of these women say Dr. Tiller saved their lives.

Since his tragic death, we have received messages from some of his patients and from people around the world who are saddened and outraged. We feel it is important to share these words and tributes to our beloved colleague and friend. For the first time, we will enable comments on our blog so that all of you can share your condolences or offer memories of Dr. Tiller. We invite you to join us in honoring a true American hero, Dr. George Tiller.

Post your comments, condolences, and personal memories of Dr. Tiller

National Abortion Federation Expresses Disappointment in Judge’s Decision to Delay Opening of Clinic in Aurora

We issued this press release today:

    The National Abortion Federation (NAF) expressed disappointment in today’s decision by U.S. District Court Judge Charles Norgle dismissing Planned Parenthood’s request for a preliminary injunction that would have allowed the opening of a new clinic in Aurora, IL.

    Last week, city officials notified Planned Parenthood that their clinic would not be allowed to open until the city completed an investigation into whether Planned Parenthood had complied with the permitting process. The clinic had been scheduled to open on Tuesday.

    “Although the case is still open, today’s decision prevents access to important health care services that the new clinic would offer including sexually transmitted disease treatment, breast cancer screening, and abortion care. Planned Parenthood is being treated differently from other types of medical facilities by the City of Aurora,” stated Vicki Saporta, President and CEO of NAF.

    “While we are disappointed in today’s decision, we are confident that Planned Parenthood will be allowed to provide high-quality and affordable health care to the citizens of Aurora,” said Saporta.
