Clinic of Slain Abortion Doctor to Reopen in Kansas

October 01, 2012
Headlines

And an abortion rights group has announced plans to reopen the Wichita, Kansas, abortion clinic of the slain doctor and women’s health advocate George Tiller. The 67-year-old Tiller was shot dead by an anti-abortion extremist as he attended church services in 2009. His clinic has remained closed since then. The Trust Women Foundation has announced it’s purchased the clinic and will reopen it as a health center offering abortion and other services. The new clinic will operate under stricter regulations in Kansas that allow abortions only in earlier stages of pregnancy.
