Attorney General Decries Violence Against Abortion Providers
June 17, 2009
Yesterday, Attorney General Eric Holder renewed his call for stronger hate crimes legislation, citing recent fatal shootings, including the murder of NAF member Dr. George Tiller.
Holder said nothing could justify the act.
“We will not tolerate murder or the threat of violence masquerading as political activism,” he said. “And we will do all that we can to deter violence against reproductive health care providers and to prosecute those who commit such violence to the fullest extent of the law.”
