Catholic Bishops of Kansas on Murder of Dr. George Tiller
Such an act of violence against human life is a contradiction of the most fundamental principle of the Pro-Life movement.
Statement of the Bishops of Kansas
"We, the four Catholic Bishops of the Dioceses of Kansas, unequivocally condemn the murder of Dr. George Tiller that occurred in Wichita earlier today. The Catholic Church believes that every human life is sacred.
"The murder of a human being is the gravest of crimes and is an intrinsic evil. Such an act of violence against human life is a contradiction of the most fundamental principle of the Pro-Life movement.
"The fact that this attack occurred in a church, a place of prayer and worship, only adds to the horror of this terrible crime.
"We prayerfully commend Dr. George Tiller to the mercy of God and we pray for comfort and consolation for his family and friends.
