    While there has been plenty of reporting on the death of Dr. Tiller the abortion doctor, I don't think enough has been reported about the actual procedure itself, a late term abortion. Here's a few links to some info:

    Late-term abortion - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    So it seems there are wide ranging opinions on the time frame of a late term abortion.

    Here's some pics of the results of late term abortions:

    Do you have the reasons Tiller performed these abortions? Seems no one wants to discuss that.

    Do you? I am willing to discuss it. May be a day or two before I can post again, though.

    Since medical records are confidential there's no way of knowing. But it isn't legal in Kansas to perform later term abortions on viable fetuses and from accounts I've read the abortions performed were for heart wrenching reasons...like fused twins that had no hope of separation or a life, etc.

    Isn't that covered by the Supreme Court decision from a few years ago, anyway?

    Pretty much.

    Which is why I don't understand the condemnation and the murder of Tiller.

    For what? Aborting deformed hopeless future people that would be medically costly to even keep on life support?
