Fr. Frank Pavone comments on the killing of George Tiller
Dr. George Tiller, who performed thousands of late-term abortions, was shot and killed Sunday in a church where he was serving as an usher.
Here is today's Statement on the Killing of George Tiller by Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life:
“I am saddened to hear of the killing of George Tiller this morning. At this point, we do not know the motives of this act, or who is behind it, whether an angry post-abortive man or woman, or a misguided activist, or an enemy within the abortion industry, or a political enemy frustrated with the way Tiller has escaped prosecution. We should not jump to conclusions or rush to judgment.
“But whatever the motives, we at Priests for Life continue to insist on a culture in which violence is never seen as the solution to any problem. Every life has to be protected, without regard to their age or views or actions.”
Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, offers preliminary comments on the killing of abortionist George Tiller.
