Watch "The Assassination of Dr. Tiller"
Last night during the Rachel Maddow Show's usual time slot, MSNBC aired The Assassination of Dr. Tiller, a documentary on the 2009 murder of the Wichita, Kansas, abortion provider. George Tiller specialized in second- and third-trimester abortions, making him one of only a small handful of providers in the country who would help women in the later months of pregnancy facing unbelievably difficult circumstances. His specialty also made him -- as well as his colleagues and family members -- a target for anti-choice groups such as Operation Rescue and wingnuts like Scott Roeder, who ultimately assassinated Dr. Tiller. The one-hour documentary is narrated by Rachel Maddow and features interviews with individuals on both sides of the abortion debate. Watch part one here... ...and parts two, three, four, five, and six at the Rachel Maddow Show website.
