Thank you, Dr. Tiller.
Thank you, Dr. Tiller, for giving your life to serve women and provide a service few others were brave enough to provide. Thank you for trusting us, and helping us.
Thank you, Dr. Tiller's family, for the sacrifice you made allowing him to go to work every day, despite the threats. Despite the bombings. Despite the shootings. Thank you for the love you showed him and the women he treated.
Thank you to his nurses and staff, who also braved the protesters and suffered the death threats. Thank you to their families, who send them to work every day knowing what they face.
Thank you to all the doctors, nurses, and staff, and escorts, who work at clinics that provide abortion services (and those that work at clinics that don't, but still have to put up with protesters who don't even understand what they're doing). We know you're there, and we appreciate it, even if we forget to say it. We need you -- thank you for being there for us.
