Grand Jury Petition Certified — Investigation Into Abortion Death Will Proceed

Wichita, KS — Operation Rescue has learned that petitions calling for a Grand Jury investigation of abortionist George Tiller in the death of Christin Gilbert have been certified, opening the way for the investigation to proceed.

Commissioner of Elections Bill Gale certified yesterday that the petition contained the signatures of 6,186 qualified Sedgwick County voters, nearly three times the amount required by a Kansas law that allows citizens to convene grand juries to investigate suspected criminal violations when counties fail to act.

The certified petition is asking the Grand Jury investigate a wide range of charges against Tiller in Gilbert’s third-trimester abortion death, including second-degree murder and mistreatment of a dependent adult. Gilbert had Down syndrome.

“We are ecstatic. There is now at least some hope that justice will be done on behalf of Christin and her viable pre-born child,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “I know that the members of Christin’s family that we are in contact with are relieved that the process is proceeding.”

“We have long awaited this day, when an independent Grand Jury that cannot be bought off with Tiller’s blood money will conduct an impartial investigation into what is really going on behind closed doors at Tiller’s abortion mill. It’s high time that this man is held accountable for his actions that have caused untold misery and loss of life.”

    Any headache for Tiller is great news.

    However, don’t get your hopes up that this grand jury will be his waterloo.

    I could give many reasons for saying so, but here’s just a couple:

    1. The pro-abortion district attorney directs the grand jury.

    2. The pro-abortion district attorney can refuse to prosecute any charges of any indictment issued by the grand jury.

    I say, oust her from office! In the meantime, I hope she gets a makeover.

    Listening to the evasive 911 call for an ambulance was sickening. The abortionist’s office refused to give any reason as to why an ambulance was needed. Thank-you for posting the 911 call. Those who have done wrong are deceptive and do not want the light of day to reveal what they have done. May the brilliant light of a Grand Jury investigation expose the truth for all to see.

    DITTOES, CS, Tina, Heywood and Greg!




    “Do you treat, care for, and help a sick or disabled person, or do you kill him? Do you measure the value of a person’s life in money? Or in utilitarian usefulness? The cost to society to care for all the physically and mentally handicapped among us is but a tiny fraction of the cost to society for the morally deformed among us. Professor Jerome Lejeune, discoverer of the chromosomal pattern of Down’s syndrome once related to us a story he had heard from a geneticist colleague which illustrates this well:

    “Many years ago, my father was a Jewish physician in Braunau, Austria. On one particular day, two babies had been delivered by one of his colleagues. One was a fine, healthy boy with a strong cry. His parents were extremely proud and happy. The other was a little girl, but her parents were extremely sad, for she was a Mongoloid baby. I followed them both for almost fifty years. The girl grew up, living at home, and was finally destined to be the one who nursed her mother through a very long and lingering illness after a stroke. I do not remember her name. I do, however, remember the boy’s name. He died in a bunker in Berlin. His name was Adolf Hitler.”
