I was seeing eight- and nine-month pregnant women come in, she said, and out of those two dozen a week, only about 2 percent had medical deformities. I thought I was pro-choice back then, but week after week I kept seeing these women coming in with healthy babies and I saw all the records. I didnt think that was right.

A powerful testimonial
I read the article and she left there 20 years ago. That doesn’t at all undermine her credibility. Quite the contrary, in fact. I notice that she said Tiller “didn’t deserve to be shot”. I think that’s overly generous of her. Tiller claimed 60,000 “kills” so, if he didn’t deserve to be shot, then who does? “Tiller’s Temple of the Barbaric Sacrament” is no more - and that’s a good thing.
2% of 60,000=
1,200 with medical anomalies?
Murder is ALWAYS wrong, even by abortion!
All were never referred to any psychological counseling for "treatment of their permanent mental impairment," which any serious medical doctor would have a medical moral obligation to do.
An uninterested (purported pro-choice) doctor from John's Hopkins reviewed all of the subpoenaed records and stated that most of the abortions performed by Tiller was done for any serious psychological illness, and none to save the life of the mother from any physical illness.
The only way to really know who’s telling the truth is to have all the records released for public scrutiny. But the Tiller folks won’t do that because it would show criminal behavior, though they’ll cite ‘privacy’ as the reason for hiding the truth.
From Enid, Oklahoma...
Luhra Tivis thought she was pro-choice until she worked for the late Dr. George Tiller.
Tivis, who now lives in Enid, said she worked for Tiller in Wichita, Kan., in 1988. Tivis did computer work at the abortion clinic, filing Medicare records. She also underwent some sales training and answered calls from patients. She now is employed at StarTek and also works for Wheatheart Nutrition delivering meals.
Since her experience working in the clinic, Tivis has changed her opinion about abortion, is a member of Operation Rescue and an outspoken opponent of abortion, speaking at rallies throughout the United States.

Thanks to the Enid news for printing this...
Speaking of deformities. My best friend told me Saturday that his nephew, who was diagnosed in-vitro with Downs Syndrome, graduated with honors from St. Anslem’s. Apparently medicine is not an exact science because after his mother chose to carry him to term, he was born perfectly healthy.
God bless her.
ALSO.., here’s one for you... (and anyone...)....
Ask one of these deformed people, who have grown up being that way from birth defects and/or other problems that hamper their life — and see if they wish that they had been aborted before being born.
I would be surprised to find any of those who would say they wished that they had been aborted...
[there might be one or two, as there always are exceptions to the rule in just about every instance of anything you talk about — but, I’m willing to bet *as a rule* — you will find that just about *all* are happy to be alive... and not aborted...]
She called him a good man. Say What!
And to think someone likened his murder to the assassination of Martin Luther King.
How did some in America sink so low?
Maybe she meant “a nice guy”. A lot of people said that about Ted Bundy, too.
he was born perfectly healthy.
Same with my landlady’s last baby. The Nurse-Midwife was able to use the medical information to bring her husband home from Iraq, though. I would say God had a hand in that. He would have been with his unit when one was killed and the others wounded. God knew he needed to be alive . . . they have “her kids” “their kids” and “relatives kids” and have an 8 bedroom house (originally a three bedroom house) with 6 bathrooms (orig. 2) for 12 family members.
From the article: Tivis, who now lives in Enid, said she worked for Tiller in Wichita, Kan., in 1988. Tivis did computer work at the abortion clinic, filing Medicare records. She also underwent some sales training and answered calls from patients.
I wasn't aware women of child-bearing age qualified for Medicare. Perhaps they mean Medicaid. Perhaps this can be attributed to sloppy reporting. Or perhaps Tivis gets her facts terribly wrong.
In any case, I remain far less convinced of the lady's veracity.
