Best of the Feminist Blogosphere

I've spent a good part of the day reading the many articles and essays about Dr. Tiller that are floating around the feminist blogosphere. Some of the most touching, thought-provoking, and well-written:

On George Tiller and the Profound Power of Language

Megan at Jezebel writes about the power of words and the environment that encouraged Dr. Tiller's assassin.

The Circle Continues
RH Reality Check covers Dr. Leroy Carhart, the heroic doctor who is temporarily taking over Dr. Tiller's clinic.

Where will women go now?
Broadsheet at Salon addresses the remarkable scope of Dr. Tiller's good work, and wonders what will happen to all the women he would have helped in the future.

The Murder of Dr. Tiller, a Foreshadowing
Cristina Page points out the patterns of clinic violence and worries that there is more to come, at Huffington Post.

Patients Remember Dr. Tiller

Jill at Feministe compiled the recollections of the many men and women Dr. Tiller helped, some of whom would not be alive today without him. A must read for anyone who has ever had doubts of the need for late-term abortions.
