Wisconsin pro-life groups issue statements on on Tiller murder

Pro-Life Wisconsin Deplores Killing of Dr. George Tiller

Yesterday morning late-term abortionist George Tiller was shot and killed in Wichita, Kansas. Pro-Life Wisconsin State Director Peggy Hamill made the following statement:

Pro-Life Wisconsin is appalled by the slaying of Dr. George Tiller Sunday morning. As a peaceful, prayerful pro-life organization, working through educational and legislative means to end abortion, we deplore this act of violence – just as we deplore the killing of preborn children in the womb.

Pro-Life Wisconsin prays for the conversion of abortionists and those involved in the abortion movement. Tragically, George Tiller was denied the opportunity to have a conversion of heart and mind unlike many former doctors and nurses who have left the abortion industry and now work to promote life. We pray for the repose of the soul of George Tiller.
