WASHINGTON, Nov. 28 /Christian Newswire/ -- Notorious late-term abortionist George Tiller is finally getting the national scrutiny and condemnation he deserves. Concerned Women for America (CWA) applauds Bill O'Reilly, host of FOX News' O'Reilly Factor, for his year-long investigation of Dr. George Tiller, also known as "Tiller the Killer."
Tiller devised his own method of committing late-term abortions on viable babies by injecting digoxin into the baby's heart then inducing labor. After several days, the mother delivers a dead baby who is then cremated in Tiller's own incinerator. At scheduled times each week, ash can be seen drifting from the smokestack. O'Reilly has discovered that in many cases the reason for aborting healthy babies was Tiller's claim that the mother was "temporarily depressed."
Tiller has vigorously fought the state attorney general's investigation of alleged rape of minors. "Acting more like an accomplice than a medical professional, Tiller has refused to report to the attorney general information of suspected cases of sexual abuse against minor girls. Instead of rescuing girls from their abusers, Tiller commits abortions on them and destroys the evidence," said Wendy Wright, President of CWA.
Tiller opened a political action committee (PAC) which obtained names of his patients to solicit contributions from them. The PAC funded candidates who have shielded Tiller from meaningful investigation or punishment.
CWA President Wendy Wright said, "We commend Bill O'Reilly for shining a spotlight on George Tiller. George Tiller has gotten away with mass murder, evaded state laws, possibly assisted rapists and built his own little Auschwitz in the heartland of America. It's time for a thorough investigation of his records, clinic and staff."
CWA State Director of Kansas Judy Smith said, "Dr. George Tiller has operated in the state of Kansas with impunity for years, safe from the scrutiny of the good people of Kansas because of the protection of some elected officials and the magnanimous indulgence of the Kansas press. The people of Kansas need to understand that Dr. Tiller brutally kills almost-born children for profit and that he is aided in this by certain unscrupulous lawmakers and the media. The time has come for the citizens of Kansas to demand an end to the blatant murder and sexual abuse of innocent children."
