Dr. Tiller's Murder Keeps National Spotlight on Abortion

Wash. Post: Slaying Raises Fears on Both Sides of Abortion Debate, by Peter Slevin:

WICHITA, June 1 -- As the U.S. Marshals Service moved to protect abortion clinics and doctors nationwide, the fatal shooting of the country's most prominent provider of late-term abortions reignited a national debate about reproductive rights.

Supporters of the right to legal abortion worried Monday that the killing of George Tiller in his Wichita church could foretell fresh protests and violence even as many abortion opponents fretted that his death could hurt their image and cause.

Already I have seen conservative blog posts about how the "pro-life" movement should not allow the death the water down their rhetoric. With a new nominee for SCOTUS this is a recipe for protests and violence. Great news story about Tiller murder here: http://www.newsy.com/videos/the_killing_of_george_tiller
