Please bring a lighter to help light candles.

Dr. Tiller provided abortion care to women in Kansas, and his clinic is one of the few in the country that provide late-term abortions. Because of his commitment to women’s health, Dr. Tiller suffered constant threats, serious injuries, regular protesters, vandalism to his clinic, and relentless political and legal attacks. Through it all, he was a tireless advocate for his patients and for women’s rights.
Dr. Tiller was shot and killed at his church Sunday morning.

Our hearts go out to Dr. Tiller’s family. Health care providers, and the women who receive their services, should never be the targets of violence.

The California Constitution explicitly protects reproductive privacy, making the state a relative safe haven for women who make the difficult choice to end a pregnancy. The ACLU worked hard to secure this right. We continue to use litigation, legislative advocacy, public education, and grassroots organizing to protect and advance the rights of all California women to make informed personal decisions about childbearing.

If you have questions, please contact Amy Denhart or call (619) 881-4595.

If you are unable to attend a memorial service, there are still ways to express your feelings about the tragic loss of Dr. Tiller:
