Let me begin by sending my deepest condolences to the family of Dr. George Tiller. His brutal murder is yet another act of senseless violence and a hate crime. The anti - abortion people believe they can say whatever they please and think that it is justified as freedom of speech. Their hateful words and behavior has an effect on everyone, even those crazy enough to load a gun, walk into a church and take the life of someone else's brother, father, friend. It is no secret that I am pro-choice and proud of it! I have blogged, been on live TV and lobbied in Springfield, IL about it before. This is the very reason why I volunteer for the Chicago Abortion fund. Sure, abortion is still legal but if all of the doctors who willingly put there lives on the line to help keep a woman's choice possible are murdered, Roe v. Wade will certainly become irrelevant.
