Wichita, KS – District Court Judge Clark V. Owens released his decision this afternoon denying the motions filed by late-term abortionist George R. Tiller, which asked the judge to suppress evidence against him and dismiss the 19 pending criminal charges involving illegal late-term abortions.
Judge Owens addressed all the concerns that Tiller’s attorneys brought up over six days of testimony, especially those alleging outrageous governmental conduct involving former Attorney General Phill Kline.
Judge Owens ruled:
While Phill Kline testified that he would like for all abortions to be outlawed, his investigations made no attempts to prevent lawful abortions from being performed in the State of Kansas. His procedures have certainly been questioned by the Kansas Supreme Court, but his conduct in the investigation does not merit the sanction of the dismissal of the charges or suppression of evidence.
The motion to dismiss or suppress is therefore denied.
“This decision brings us one step closer to justice,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “We continue to pray that true justice will be served on behalf of the innocent, viable babies wrongfully killed by Tiller.”
