New Abortion Business to Open in Tiller’s Old Building in Wichita

Wichita, KS — The building that once housed the largest late-term abortion clinic outside Communist China has stood vacant for over three years ever since the death of its owner, George Tiller, in May, 2009. Since the clinic’s closure, Wichita has remained abortion-free in spite of at least three credible attempts to re-establish an abortion business in a city that was once known as the Abortion Capital of the World.

Today it is being reported that the building was sold in August to the Trust Women Foundation, led by former Tiller employee Julie Burkhart, who plans to open a new abortion clinic there by January, 2013. The new business will supply first and second trimester abortions, according to a document obtained by Operation Rescue on August 29, 2012.

Trust Women will operate the clinic under the name South Wind Women’s Center and will rely predominantly on out-of-state abortionists to fly into to Wichita to do abortions, creating a dangerous continuity of care issue of the kind that has elsewhere resulted in additional risks to women’s health including maternal deaths.

“The abortion group may have bought Tiller’s old building, but that is still a far cry from resuming abortions in Wichita. If Trust Women wants to provide abortions then Operation Rescue will make sure the business is neither profitable nor sustainable,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue.

    I think we should protest every day untill they see the errors of their wicked ways. No one has any right to take a life

    There will be absolutely NO tranquility while there is child killing. I will stand against this heinous action.

  • John Allen

    Sure, Catherine, free speech is a right.

    And so is abortion per the SCOTUS.

    Knock yourself out.

    I had an abortion in college at 10 weeks. I have zero regrets, only that I failed to use birth control ONCE in my now 38 years on this earth.

    I applaud this news. Abortion is legal. And shall remain so. If men could get pregnant, abortion would be a sacrament 77% of the anti-choice movement is made of men and ZERO PERCENT of them will ever give birth. So slag off.

    Sorry you killed your baby. May God grant you repentance. BTW, 75% of this organization’s staff are women. My two daughters and six grandbabies are the greatest treasure of my life. It is so sad that you took the greatest blessing and joy you will ever have and threw him or her in the trash. Indeed it is tragic. Praying for you.
