Tiller Vigil Draws Anti-abortion Protesters

By  | 

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ About 10 anti-abortion protesters gathered
across the street from a downtown Wichita vigil where supporters of
George Tiller remembered the slain abortion provider.

The protesters outside Sunday's vigil were from Westboro Baptist
Church in Topeka, which also pickets military funerals. The
protesters held signs emblazoned with such messages as ``Abortion
is bloody murder'' and ``Baby killer in hell.''

The protesters and about 20 Tiller supporters shouted at each
other. A large number of police officers stood by to make sure the
scene stayed under control.

The vigil was attended by a couple of hundred people.
