127. (RIP dr. george tiller.)

on may 30th 2009, dr george tiller was murdered. the world lost an extremely important figure in women's health and rights. one of his mottos was simply "trust women." i think these two words say everything that needs to be said (on being pro-choice). he was a great man and a compassionate, talented doctor, and we are at a debt without him.

“Dr. Tiller was a fearless, passionate defender of women’s reproductive health and rights. It’s time that this nation stop demonizing these doctors, and start honoring them.”
-Nancy Northup, (President of the New York-based Center for Reproductive Rights, May 31, 2009.)
