An excerpt from the new movie, Whats the Matter with Kansas? The recently-murdered Dr. Tiller of Wichita was a lightning rod for controversy because he was one of very few doctors in the U.S. who would perform third-trimester abortions. He was also a defiant foe of the Pro-Life movement. In 1991, protests at Tillers clinic and others in WIchita mushroomed into a conservative takeover of Kansas Republican Party. Viewing abortion as murder proved incredibly galvanizing in Wichita, motivating many people whod never been involved in politics before. Tragically, the flip side of this worldview - any means may be justified to stop a mass-murderer - led to Tillers shooting death on May 31, 2009. This act was widely condemned by activists on all sides of the abortion issue.
