Hundreds of people gathered during the weekend for the funeral of slain late-term abortion provider Dr. George Tiller.
Tiller performed late-term abortions in Wichita, Kansas. He was shot to death a week ago in his local church.
Abortion providers from across the country attended the Saturday service for Tiller.
ABC News spoke with Dr. Leroy Carhart who also performs late-term abortions. Carhart is one of less than a dozen U.S. doctors who offer the procedure.
"It's very much a 3-day, 4-day -- even 5-day procedure -- and in our procedure after the first day the fetus is no longer alive. So it's really a miscarriage of a still-born fetus," Carhart said.
Tom McClusky from the Family Research Council believes that late-term abortion is especially heinous because babies can feel pain.
"Any abortion that we see in the pro-life movement as being wrong. But in the case of late-term abortion, these are children that have arms, have legs, feel pain," he said.
Kansas authorities are holding Scott Roeder on charges of first-degree murder in connection with the shooting of Tiller.
Abortion supporters have been mourning Tiller as a hero because he was one of the few doctors who performed late-term abortions.
Suprisingly, some liberal Christian leaders have made similar remarks.
