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.

However, a dozen US Marshalls will stay posted there, indefinitely.
Too bad for the Left - even Auschwitz had to close eventually.
Hard to keep a butcher shop open without a butcher.
“However, a dozen US Marshalls will stay posted there, indefinitely.”
Well that’s a waste of federal dollars.
Bad news when a criminal gets what he wants.
The closing of this child murdering facility is nothing but good news.
I thought of this movie scene when I heard Tiller was dead:
Nah, you can always rent one with a coat hanger.
Saw a great bumper sticker today.
“Isn’t it hypocritical to be for abortion, after you’ve already been born?”
Fabulous!! Bears repeating.
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.
Please FreepMail me if you want on or off my Pro-Life Ping List.
Where was this Reported??
Kansas.com mentions nothing about the Marshal’s.
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.
A modern day Auschwitz is closed! : )
Wonderful!!! It should be made into a memorial! : )
Tiller and killer are both criminals.
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.
“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.
