A fateful discovery turned Tiller from skin care to abortion

George Tiller planned to become a much lower-profile doctor — a dermatologist. Instead, he became a Wichita late-term abortion doctor who enraged many conservatives nationwide. The transition came after his family was killed when the turboprop plane his physician father was piloting crashed. Tiller wanted to close his father's practice. Then he discovered that more than a few of his father's patients had had abortions.
