Wichita, Kansas — Women have come forward and shared their stories of coerced, botched, and illegal abortions at the nation’s largest late-term abortion mill, operated by George R. Tiller in Wichita, Kansas.
“These are heart-breaking stories for which we hold Governor Kathleen Sebelius personally responsible,” said Operation Rescue Senior Policy Advisor Cheryl Sullenger. “The governor has appointed people to all the state’s enforcement institutions that continue to turn a blind eye to lawbreaking and unethical behavior on the part of the abortion cartel. She is at the heart of the abortion corruption scandal in Kansas that has already cost the jobs of an attorney general and two top members of the Kansas State Board of Healing Arts. Unfortunately, that is just the tip of the iceberg.”
Women have told Operation Rescue of their experiences with late abortions at Tiller’s Women’s Health Care Services in response to an Internet appeal for their stories. Those experiences include:
An abortion on a 14-year old girl who did not understand what was happening to her. Her traumatic abortion resulted in drug abuse and suicidal thoughts. An unwanted abortion on a 17-year old whose abusive parents forced her to abort. The girl was drugged into submission and her pleas for help ignored by clinic staff. A forced abortion on a 19-year old whose last word before succumbing to the anesthesia was, “Nooooo!” A step-mom who coerced a young girl into an unwanted abortion contrary to the wishes of her rightful parent, resulting in a disturbing personality change in her daughter.
Other women shared experiences of botched or illegal abortions, including:
An abortion done on a woman in her 25th week of pregnancy whose medical records show that the abortion was not medically necessary, in violation of Kansas Law. A botched abortion that resulted in years of gynecological problems.
“Gov. Sebelius is using her appointees in the Kansas State Board of Healing Arts, the Kansas Department of Health, the Attorney General’s office, and perhaps even the Kansas Supreme Court to cover up for Tiller’s wrongdoing. This is costing innocent lives that laws have been enacted to protect, as well as untold human misery in the lives of vulnerable young girls who do not have the will to resist the tremendous pressures to abort. We can no longer ignore these tragedies. We again urge the legislature to conduct an investigation into this abortion corruption scandal.”
