Home-Grown Terror

El Diario/La Prensa, Posted: Jun 06, 2009

NEW YORK -- An editorial in El Diario/La Prensa calls the murder of Dr. George Tiller last weekend a crime of national significance. "With Latinas too often denied access to health services and deterred from making their own health decisions," editors write, the murder matters far beyond Wichita, Kansas. Tiller is the latest of several doctors murdered by violent anti-abortion fanatics, according to the editorial. Editors write that the murder was "anything but pro-life" and was "a form of terrorism." The suspect, Scott Roeder, is also reported to have associated with anti-government militia groups, which are typically anti-immigrant and pro guns, according to El Diario/La Prensa. Editors call for an FBI investigation into the intimidation of women entering health clinics, whenever it causes fear for their safety and that of doctors and nurses. Women must have unencumbered access to legalized health options, editors write, noting that the recent abortion ban in the Dominican Republic undermines womens health. Those who are against abortion have a right to free speech, but do not have a right to endanger women and healthcare providers, the editorial concludes.
