Effort to Open Abortion Death Probe Gains Media Attention

Wichita, KS — Two articles have been published about the grassroots petition effort to convene a Kansas Grand Jury to investigate possible criminal wrong-doing by abortionist George Tiller and his staff in the death of 19-year old Christin Gilbert. One article appeared in the Wichita Eagle and the other was an Associated Press story with photo, which was published in a number of newspapers around the country.

These articles break what has essentially been a media black-out on this story.

Petitions will be submitted to Sedgwick County officials after a brief ceremony on Friday, April 7, at noon at the County Courthouse in Wichita, KS.

Operation Rescue broke the story that a young woman had died during a botched abortion on January 13, 2006. OR investigators uncovered the documentation that initiated the Grand Jury effort. That documentation will be submitted for presentation to the Grand Jury.
