If anything good can come out of Dr. Tiller's murder, it would be that it seems to have mobilized the pro-choice movement. New groups and websites have been popping up left and right over the past few days, dedicated to the cause in different ways.
I found this one, I Am Dr. Tiller , to have the potential to be very compelling. It is basically a collection of stories from people around the country who have in some way worked in the abortion field. It's not just doctors, it includes volunteers, escorts and women who have had abortions.
It could be a great way to get different stories out there; to show that the stereotypes that anti-choicers like to perpetuate about abortion providers (and patients) are untrue and inaccurate. It shows real people with real experience in this field, and while the anonymity of the submissions can't exactly put a face on the stories, it puts in a human aspect that the anti-choice side doesn't want you to think about. -Liza
