Pro-life groups get death threats

Three Wichita-based anti-abortion groups say they have received death threats in response to the murder of George Tiller, The Eagle reported today. Some of the threats have been aimed at anti-abortion activities planned in Wichita this weekend, Operation Rescue president Troy Newman said. Many abortion-rights supporters are understandably upset about Tiller's murder and about the tactics and rhetoric used by some pro-life groups. But threats of violence are never acceptable.
