Virtual Vigil

HONORING DR. GEORGE TILLER: Send us your thoughts, prayers and comments.

On Sunday, May 31st, Dr. George Tiller was murdered as he entered his church in Wichita, Kansas. Dr. Tiller provided abortion services in the state of Kansas and was a frequent target of harassment and intimidation.

The pro-choice community is reeling from this act of violence against one of our greatest advocates, and many pro-choice supporters have contacted us asking what they can do.

Rather than letting this unspeakable act divide us, let's work together with civility and respect. Let us offer our encouragement and support to those that continue to make women's health care a priority.

Our colleagues in the Minnesota Choice Coalition will be taking part in a candlelight vigil for Dr. Tiller this Tuesday, June 2nd from 9-9:30pm in Minneapolis.

While we cannot join them in body, let us join them in spirit with a virtual vigil.

From 9-9:30 pm CST, join us at to reflect on one man’s life and contribution to the pro-choice movement, and to mourn among other pro-choice supporters.

You can send your thoughts, prayers and comments to
starting right now and into the evening on Tuesday. Then, they will be posted during the half hour vigil.

Thank you for all you do to protect women's health care in South Dakota.
