Hi there,

You trust Democracy Now! to bring you the news stories and global headlines you won't find anywhere else. But did you know that Democracy Now! never accepts money from advertisers, corporate underwriters or governments? This allows us to maintain the editorial independence you rely on—but it also means we need your help. If everyone seeing this gave just $4 a month, it would more than cover our expenses for the entire year—and today a donor will DOUBLE your first month. Please do your part. It takes just a couple of minutes to make sure that Democracy Now! is there for you and everybody else. Thank you so much!

Clinic of Slain Abortion Provider George Tiller Reopens in Kansas

HeadlineApr 04, 2013

The Wichita, Kansas, abortion clinic of the slain doctor and women’s health advocate George Tiller has reopened its doors. Tiller was shot dead by an anti-abortion extremist as he attended church services in 2009. His clinic had remained closed until Wednesday, when it was reopened under the new name of the South Wind Women’s Center. The new clinic will operate under stricter regulations, performing abortions through 14 weeks of pregnancy. The clinic is run by Tiller’s longtime colleague, Julie Burkhart.
