Abortion doctor murderer sentenced

An anti-abortion activist and murderer of late-term abortion provider George Tiller has been sentenced to life in prison on Thursday.

Scott Roeder, 52, was convicted of first-degree murder and aggravated assault after shooting Tiller in the face during church services last May, Reuters said.

The judge said Roeder will not be eligible for parole for at least 50 years, reported Reuters.

Tiller's clinic in Wichita, Kan., was one of only three clinics in the United States that offered abortions after 21 weeks of pregnancy, commonly known as late-term abortions, BBC News said.

BBC News reports that Roeder said he expressed no regret for the murder of Tiller. "Wichita is a far safer place for unborn babies without George Tiller."
