U.S. Bishops Express ‘Profound Regret’ about Shooting Death of Abortion Doctor

“Our bishops’ conference and all its members have repeatedly and publicly denounced all forms of violence in our society, including abortion.”

WASHINGTON, D.C., June 1, 2009 (LifeSiteNews.com) — Speaking on behalf of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, Cardinal Justin Rigali of Philadelphia, chairman of the bishops’ Committee on Pro-Life Activities, expressed profound regret upon learning of the shooting death of abortion doctor George Tiller.

“Our bishops’ conference and all its members have repeatedly and publicly denounced all forms of violence in our society, including abortion as well as the misguided resort to violence by anyone opposed to abortion,” Cardinal Rigali said. “Such killing is the opposite of everything we stand for, and everything we want our culture to stand for: respect for the life of each and every human being from its beginning to its natural end. We pray for Dr. Tiller and his family.”
