SPUC condemns shooting of Dr George Tiller London, 1 June 2009 - The Society for the Protection of Unborn Children (SPUC), a leading pro-life group based in London, has condemned the shooting in Kansas, USA of George Tiller, a prominent abortion provider.
John Smeaton, SPUC national director, commented: "Although the motivation behind the killing of Dr Tiller has yet to be established, SPUC, in common with other pro-life groups, condemns his killing as a crime against life. SPUC has always condemned violence, whether against abortionists or unborn babies. Acts of violence towards the staff of abortion facilities are isolated. Those responsible have on each occasion acted as individuals, and not members of any pro-life group. Our sympathy goes out to Dr Tiller's family."
