Twitter hashtag: #BostonVigil and 
#Tiller (this one is attracting some unpleasant tweets, 
however)
Dr. Tiller was shot and killed 
Sunday morning while serving as an usher at his church in Witchita , Kansas .  Since the 1970s, Dr. Tiller has 
provided critical abortion and reproductive health care at great personal risk. 
In doing so, he has saved the lives and futures of countless women and girls 
across the country.  His murder is a tragedy for his family, friends, and 
colleagues.  It is also a tragedy for the women who need his care and for 
the entire community of health care providers and advocates, and for all of us 
who believe in a woman's right to dignity and self-determination.  Please 
join us in honoring this great man who truly lived by his motto to "Trust 
Women."

Join the Boston community in sharing our grief and 
celebrating the life of Dr. George Tiller, a true hero for women across the 
country.

The Network has also received many requests from women who received
care from Dr. Tiller and from activists in the reproductive rights and
justice community to set up a Fund in Dr. Tiller’s name to help women
seeking abortion care. We have established the George Tiller Memorial
Abortion Fund that will help women in the second trimester with
assistance paying for abortion care, as well as paying for travel and
lodging enroute to providers. To donate to the Fund in Dr. Tiller’s
name, please send contributions to:
