Stop taking pictures of Tiller patients

abortionprotest1.jpgOn this 35th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision that made a woman’s right to abortion the law of the land, the issue remains a deeply emotional one for the general public and a deeply personal one for the women who seek abortions. That Operation Rescue would see fit to photograph patients going into George Tiller’s Women’s Health Services clinic and post those images on the Internet, even with faces obscured, only furthers the group’s status as a fringe outfit. The group should immediately stop violating these women’s privacy. If more responsible pro-life groups disagree with such tactics, they should say so. Meanwhile, there should be unanimity on one point: that it’s welcome news that abortions nationally are at their lowest level since 1974.
