Victim of Jan. 13 botched abortion died.
OR says Gov. Sebelius is to blame and calls for the suspension of Tiller’s license.


Wichita, KS — Operation Rescue received information from two independent sources that a patient of abortionist George Tiller has died. The woman was transported by ambulance from the abortion clinic owned by late-term abortionist George Tiller to Wesley Medical Center on January 13. Operation Rescue broke the story immediately with pictures and video (see link). Operation Rescue has worked with both of the anonymous sources before and found them to be reliable and credible.

According to one insider, Tiller’s patient arrived at the hospital with “severe hemorrhaging” and died “a few days later” from undetermined causes but the source said, “are very likely to be the result of a botched abortion.” According to 911 transcripts, the ambulance was requested by Tiller office worker Marguerite Reed, who according to 911 dispatch records was being “very evasive” and “refused to give any information about the patient.” The ambulance sped to Wesley Hospital, with sirens and lights.

Operation Rescue staffers at the scene witnessed both the arrival of the ambulance and abortionist George Tiller at Wesley Hospital. The eyewitnesses said it was obvious “something was desperately wrong because of the grim and worried demeanor of the EMTs working frantically to save the woman’s life.”

One key inside source said the woman arrived in “bad shape” and was “horrified at her condition.”

This is the fourth documented ambulance run from Tillers abortion mill to Wesley Hospital in the last 13 months. (June 04, Sept. 04, Jan. 05)

“I question the judgment of Governor Sebelius in vetoing the clinic regulation act. That statue could very well have prevented this needless and tragic death. Our prayer of concern and sympathy go out to the family and loved ones for the untimely death of mother and child.” -Troy Newman, president, Operation Rescue

“We call upon the Kansas Board of Healing Arts, which is overseen by the Governor’s office, to quickly investigate this tragic and needless death, and, in the interest of public safety, to suspend the medical license of George Tiller until a full investigation is complete.” -Cheryl Sullenger, Operation Rescue Outreach Coordinator
