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.
