A Death in Wichita: Abortion Doctor George Tiller and the New American Civil War


A Death in Wichita: Abortion Doctor George Tiller and the New American Civil War Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With A Death in Wichita (originally published as The Wichita Divide) New York Times bestselling author Stephen Singular offers an in-depth account of the life and death of a controversial doctor, the debate that sparked his assassination, and the place where two Americas collide

On May 31, 2009, Scott Roeder walked into a Wichita church, drew a pistol, and shot Dr. George Tiller at point blank range. Tiller, who was the most public practitioner of late-term abortions in America, had been a lightning rod for controversy, regularly referred to in the conservative media as “Tiller, the Baby Killer.”

Tillers death was a pivotal, public murder in a war that has been raging for decades. Its a war of violently opposing ideologies, encompassing abortion, but also questions of privacy, sexuality, and religion. Its being fought in our nations courtrooms, school and churches, on television sets, at our dinner tables, and in our bedrooms. And more and more, the key battlegrounds are in Kansas, once home to Brown vs. Board of Education and some of the bloodiest conflicts of the Civil War.

This is a gripping look at a cold-blooded terrorist action, two men representing opposite ideological extremes, and the region where those violent forces clash.
