General Convention on Abortion
The murder of Dr. George Tiller, a physician who provided safe abortions, will bring again to the forefront issues of abortion and of appropriate responses. Readers should be aware that the General Convention has spoken to abortion (most fully in resolution 1994-A054 here; to post-abortion stress (in resolution 2000-D083 here); and to violence against abortion clinics (resolution 1988-D124 here). I have written before about this in more detail, but I thought we might want again to recall how General Convention has addressed these issues.
