VIDEO: Key Witness In Tiller Criminal Case Says AG Morrison Never Contacted Him

Lenexa, KS — Respected psychiatrist Dr. Paul McHugh said today that even though he was scheduled to testify against abortionist George R. Tiller in the criminal case filed by former Attorney General Phill Kline, he has not been contacted in any way by the current Attorney General Paul Morrison.

Tiller was charged with 30 criminal counts related to the commission of illegal late-term abortions last December, only to have the charges dropped on dubious jurisdictional grounds at the request of District Attorney Nola Foulston.

During an interview today arranged by Women Influencing the Nation, Dr. McHugh repeatedly said he had not been contacted by anyone from the Attorney General’s office since Paul Morrison was sworn in. “I expected to be contacted by someone,” he said, but never was.

Because of this, Women Influencing America contacted Dr. McHugh and told him that they believed it was important for him to come forward and share his professional findings, and Dr. McHugh agreed.

Morrison claims to have been looking into Tiller case for the past six months, and says he has hired a full-time assistant attorney general to conduct the investigation.

“I have to wonder what kind of half-baked investigation Morrison is conducting if he hasn’t even bothered to contact one of the main witnesses against Tiller,” said Operation Rescue Senior Policy Advisor Cheryl Sullenger, who was present at the taping of Dr. McHugh’s interview. “Dr. McHugh’s statements seem to indicate that Morrison is pulling the wool over the eyes of the people of Kansas by simply pretending to look into the Tiller matter when he is more likely looking the other way.”

During the interview, McHugh challenged Tiller’s diagnoses of mental health problems and stated that he saw nothing in the records that would justify a late-term abortion under Kansas law, which prohibits abortions after 21 weeks unless the mother’s live is in danger or there is a “substantial and irreversible” risk to a “major bodily function.”

Dr. McHugh will participate in a panel discussion Tuesday, June 12, 2007, at 7 PM at the Doubletree Hotel in Overland Park, Kansas. Members of the media and the public will be given an opportunity to ask questions of Dr. McHugh during the discussion.

Operation Rescue will hold a briefing on the Tiller situation Thursday, June 14, 2007, at 7 PM at Heartland Community Church in Wichita. [MORE INFORMATION]

Note: Dr. McHugh is a well-respected expert in the field of psychiatry and served as the Director of the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences of Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, and Psychiatrist-in-chief of the Johns Hopkins Hospital. His Curriculum Vitae is 27 pages in length. He is an author, professor, and member of the President’s Council on Bioethics.

    I FULLY AGREE WITH AND SUPPORT EVERY AND ALL EFFORTS TO BRING TILLER TO JUSTICE AND PROTECT THE INNOCENT WOMEN AND THEIR UNBORN CHILDREN FROM THIS VIOLENT AND BIG MONEY INDUSTRY WHICH INCLUDES THE TRADE OF BABY PARTS PICKED UP THERE 3 TIMES A WEEK!
    THE REST ARE CREMATED ON THE PREMISES CREATING A GREY ASH THAT “COVERS MY SHOES AND MAKES AN ACRID STENCH” AS ONE MAN, A COUNCILOR TOLD ME.

    I HAVE COME TO WICHITA 3 TIMES FROM IOWA, AN 8 HOUR DRIVE AT AGE 72, TO DEMONSTRATE AND PRAY AND BE ON THE SIDEWALK OF THE WINDOWLESS FORTRESS OF DEATH WITH THE MANY VOLUNTEER COUNCILORS WHO OFFER HELP AND OPTIONS TO THE MURDER TILLER COMMITS AND THEY COMMIT THEMSELVES TO.
    I WILL CONTINUE TO COME UNTIL THIS THING IS OVER!

    I HAVE NEVER SEEN SUCH ANGUISHED AND PLEADING LOOKS AND EXPRESSIONS ON THE FACES OF THE THE ABORTED MOTHERS AS THEY SLOWLY AND CAREFULLY ARE DRIVEN AWAY.

    THEY ARE IN OBVIOUS PAIN, CRYING AND HIDING THEIR FACES, VOMITING , WHICH “HAPPENS ALL THE TIME” ACCORDING TO MARK WHO FAITHFULLY PLACES AND REMOVES 167 WHITE WOODEN CROSSES AT THE BEGINNING AND END OF EACH DAY SIGNIFYING THE AVERAGE NUMBER OF BABIES KILLED THERE EACH MONTH.

    WE MUST URGENTLY PRAY AND DO ALL AND EVERYTHING WE CAN TO END THE SCOURGE OF THIS EVIL, SO BLATANTLY IN OUR MIDST. IT CURSES ALL FOR IT’S EXISTENCE WHICH HAS GONE ON FAR TOO LONG AND CONTINUES EVEN ONE DAY TOO MANY!

    GOD HAVE MERCY ON ALL THOSE WHO ALLOW EVEN ONE MORE DAY OR ONE MORE LIFE TO BE LOST!!

    Great video! God bless Dr. McHugh, Operation Rescue, and Women Influencing the Nation, and, above all, may God bless the unfortunate women who have had late-term (or any) abortions at Dr. Tiller’s Clinic.
    For two Good Fridays I have prayed with a group at Tiller’s Clinic, and I can attest to the anguish, as mentioned by Mary LaFrancis above, on the faces of those receiving abortions.
    May God have mercy on us all, and give Christians the grace to truly live Christian lives. We are the ones at fault. We have not been the salt and light Jesus called us to be.

    Well, I just read where this”expert” is no longer speaking out because of threats made against him by big, bad, lying-axx Paul Morrison.

    I think both of these weasels are jerks! If McHugh is telling the truth, then there is no reason for him to stop and many reasons for him to keep talking!

    Morrison threatens, instead of doing something, because he has no legal leg to stand on!

    This whole affair is disgusting!!! Let’s make sure our next big speaker has a spine (and other accouterments associated with manhood) before we waste a lot of time on him.

    I do hope this fraidy-cat gave back his “consultation fee”.

    I agree with the prayers that this place of death for innocent babies will soon, one day, be closed down, to the glory of God…in the meantime may God protect and rescue the little ones, may they be turned away from entering this evil place. To the little ones who lost their lives in this place, we remember you, we love you…you are not forgotten

    I was a patient of Dr. Tiller’s. My baby was severly deformed and sick and I fully support this man for saving my life. My baby died without pain. Without Dr. Tiller, many families would not have a choice. You can not judge others when you have not walked in their shoes. You have no idea what it was like. I do not regret my decision at all and would speak out for this man and this procedure any time I was needed.
