Donna Joy and her mom helped pass the Federal Partial Birth Abortion Ban in 2003 and Delivered Petition to U.S. Supreme Court Justices In 2007

Wichita, KS – Donna Joy Vance has been called a life spared to impact a nation. She certainly has done that in her young life, having appeared at Congressional Hearings in support of a Federal ban on Partial Birth Abortions and in the process, made friends with some of the most influential politicians in Washington, DC. Last year, Donna Joy hand delivered the 2007 Kansas Coalition For Life Signature Ad to all nine U.S. Supreme Court Justices, the first time in the history of the High Court that they have accepted such a petition.
Yet, Donna Joy was once scheduled for abortion at Tiller’s late-term abortion mill after having been prenatally diagnosed with severe fetal anomalies — conditions the doctors said were “incompatible with life.” Thankfully, her mother refused the abortion.
Today, Donna Joy is very much alive and will join her mother, Lori, outside Tiller’s abortion clinic where they hope to help other women chose life for their pre-born babies. Tiller specializes in late-term abortion for fetal anomaly, even though Kansas law prohibits such abortions after 22 weeks. He currently faces 19 criminal charges for committing illegal late-term abortions and a grand jury investigation that could net additional indictments.
Donna Joy and her mother Lori Vance will be available for comment to the media outside Women’s Health Care Services located at 5107 E. Kellogg in Wichita, KS, today, Thursday, May 15, at Noon.
This will be the first time Donna Joy has visited Tiller’s abortion clinic. She and her mother have offered to give statements to the media concerning her impact on the national abortion debate and her feelings about why they believe it is so important for her to help other women save their babies, even if there are serious fetal anomalies involved.
