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.
