WICHITA, Kan.- Hundreds of people have gathered for the funeral of slain abortion doctor George Tiller in Wichita, Kansas.
About 700 mourners filled the sanctuary of the College Hill United Methodist Church on Saturday and about 200 others watched a closed-circuit television broadcast in another room.
The funeral also drew small groups of abortion protesters and counter-protesters.
Tiller's Wichita clinic drew regular protests because it was among the few in the U.S. performing third-trimester abortions.
Also arriving at the church were about 50 motorcyclists from the American Legion Riders, honoring Tiller's service in the Navy.
A large portrait of Tiller hung at the front of the church.
