Tiller's Abortion Facility to Close Forever
LifeSite ^ | June 9, 2009 | Kathleen Gilbert

Posted on 06/09/2009 3:10:54 PM PDT by NYer

Kansas, June 9, 2009 (LifeSiteNews.com) - In a statement released today, the attorneys of late-term abortionist George Tiller confirmed that his Wichita abortion facility would shut its doors permanently, following Tiller's murder last month.

"The family of Dr. George Tiller announces that effective immediately, Women's Health Care Services, Inc., will be permanently closed," stated attorneys Lee Thompson and Dan Monnat today. "Notice is being given today to all concerned that the Tiller family is ceasing operation of the clinic and any involvement by family members in any other similar clinic."

The statement went on to praise Tiller's "service and courage" and asserted that Tiller's family would honor his memory through "private charitable activities." 

The attorneys also emphasized that the medical records of Tiller's former patients would "remain as fiercely protected now and in the future as they were during Dr. Tiller's lifetime."

George Tiller, who was perhaps the most notorious late-term abortionist in the United States, was shot and killed May 31 at the Lutheran church he regularly attended. Hours later, Scott Roeder of Kansas City was apprehended and charged with the first-degree murder of the abortionist.

Over 60,000 unborn children are believed to have been killed in the Wichita facility at Tiller's hands since he began his operations there in 1975.

"It is a bittersweet moment," wrote Operation Rescue president Troy Newman in an email about the closure of the abortion centre. "Operation Rescue was just 2 months away from getting Tiller's medical license revoked and that would have accomplished the same goal."

Operation Rescue, which moved its headquarters to Wichita in 2002 to focus its resources on shutting down Tiller’s sordid business, was the leading source of peaceful resistance against the abortionist's burgeoning business for several years.

Too bad for the Left - even Auschwitz had to close eventually.

Someone should obliterate the place and then make it into a memorial. All those murdered babies. What a hideous legacy this “doctor” leaves behind.

In 1970, Nobel Prize winner Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn observed:

“Let us not forget that violence does not and cannot flourish by itself; it is inevitably intertwined with lying. Between them there is the closest, the most profound and natural bond: nothing screens violence except lies, and the only way lies can hold out is by violence.”

The more odious the violence, the greater the deceit is needed to justify it. Therefore, the defense of partial-birth abortion has required an inexhaustible store of lies.

Guys, this was a joke. 0bama sent US Marshalls to abortion clinics in the days after the shooting as a show of force against pro-life people who might kill more abortionists.

Having federal marshals wasting their time standing there for the rest of Obama’s term would be a fitting tribute to his administration. Wasting taxpayer money doing something fruitless and stupid, all to make a petty emotional point.

“Terrorist victories are always bad news.”

The question we are discussing here is, is this terrorism.

If you intervened in the beating death of the three year old next door, no one would call you a terrorist.

And it’s a headliner over at the DU swamp......”Very shocking”, “A very sad day indeed”...., “Worst possible outcome”, etc... The ONE person who even remotely questioned late term abortions posted “if someone wants an abortion its probably better for everyone involved if they would make up their mind about it sooner rather than later.” They were lambasted with language that cannot be repeated here.

I think that’s cruel. Despite the horrible things he did, I hope he repented of them.

He was a human being, and regardless of what he did, he didn’t deserve to die a horrible death at the hands of another.

One thing the pro-aborts (had-aborts) will never admit to is that these “late term abortions” are mostly coerced.

There is little to no reason in most cases to wait until the last trimester to kill the baby.

The likely scenario is that the family or the boyfriend discovers the pregnancy only in the final months, and coerces the “mother” into killing it.

Reality IS cruel sometimes, that's true.

Despite the horrible things he did, I hope he repented of them.

He didn't. The blood lust that resided inside his wretched soul had completely consumed him and made him into just one more implement of murder for the Devil, and you can check my tagline if you need more evidence of that.

He was a human being, and regardless of what he did, he didn’t deserve to die a horrible death at the hands of another.

Sure he did. And it wasn't so horrible. Tiller got a bullet in the brain and he ceased feeling much in the way of pain within a minute, maybe less.

Unlike his 60,000+ victims who experienced excruciating and what must have seemed like neverending pain as he dismembered them alive.

He was no human being, he gave up any claim to that long ago.

He was a monster and he is now where he belongs.
