  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

Anti-Abortion Ads Removed in Canada

A Canadian anti-abortion group has launched a national ad campaign, which attempts to mislead the public about abortion care in Canada. The ads have been getting national media attention and in some cases have been removed due to their content.

The cities of Fredericton, New Brunswick and Kelowna, British Columbia have refused to run these ads on public transportation and Hamilton, Ontario has decided to pull the ads, citing that they were "offensive" and "controversial." This is another example of an anti-abortion organization using misleading images and misinformation to advance their agenda of banning abortion.

Doctors in Canada only provide abortion care up until 23 weeks 6 days from a woman’s last menstrual period unless a woman’s health or life is at risk or the fetus has a lethal anomaly. These types of tactics and propaganda used by anti-abortion advocates often backfire and even those who oppose abortion often object to the misleading images and misinformation.
