New owner of Tiller clinic: 'Abortion is about motherhood'
Life Site News ^ | 2/11/2013 | Ben Johnson

WICHITA, KS, February 11, 2013, (LifeSiteNews.com) – The woman trying to reopen George Tiller's abortion clinic has claimed that women who choose abortion are motivated by feelings of motherhood in a new interview with a left-wing magazine.

“Abortion is about motherhood,” said Julie Burkhart, who hopes to open South Wind Women’s Center on the same grounds as Tiller's late-term abortion facility, in an interview with Mother Jones.

Julie Burkhart hopes to take up where George Tiller left off.

She said “abortion care” is “about motherhood, because by and large women coming in to have abortions are concerned about the kind of life and the future for their children.”

“Women are thinking in a very responsible manner when choosing that,” she said. “In truth these are very well thought out decisions women are making. They're taking responsibility for their lives and the lives of their future families."

Burkhart is the former leader of George Tiller's political action committee, ProKanDo. Her new organization, the Trust Women Foundation, has purchased the site where Tiller's clinic operated. On its website, the organization states the reopening is its means of “keeping Dr. Tiller’s legacy alive.”

Kansas-based Operation Rescue has already filed a complaint after discovring that the abortion facility's renovation is being carried out without a permit. Eyewitnesses say they have seen Dale's Plumbing Services modernizing the property. Local residents recently presented a petition with 14,000 signatures against reopening the clinic.

However, Burkhart says most of the area has been favorable to her, except for “the antis,” who are “good bullies.”

“We want people to understand that this is a new day; this is a new clinic. We're working on a different model of healthcare for women,” Burkhart said.

The new business will provide abortion only until the 14th week of pregnancy, she said, rather than the late-term procedures that made Tiller's location the source of national controversy.

Those reassurances ring hollow to pro-lifers.

“If this clinic is allowed to reopen, it is only a matter of time before their gross disregard for the law lands more women in the hospital emergency rooms just as Tiller’s abortion operation did,” said Cheryl Sullenger, chief policy adviser at Operation Rescue.

But Burkhart dismisses such concerns. “It's like really, come on,” she said. “We're a town that used to have three abortion clinics. Shouldn't we be able to have at least one ob-gyn practice that offers abortion care?"

Julie is a typical secular humanist socialist whose skull, once full of mush, is dried and decaying.

Abortion assures NO future for a child except death. Taking responsibility means being responsible for the LIFE of your child. If you aren't equiped to deal with being a mother, then look into adoption. Take responsibility there, find a good future for your child, not one where the only end is death.

Abortion is about murderhood, the farthest thing from motherhood there can possibly be.

To this “lady” Aborion is about MONEY.

Women come with MONEY and get aborted.

She probably sells the fetus to some lipstick producer.

And maybe, just maybe, that evil bitch will meet the same fate as Tiller the Baby Killer did.

Abortion is ONLY about self absorbed idiots who couldn’t be bothered to keep their legs together or use birth control measures. Motherhood has nothing to do with it.

The Left continually tries to change the meaning of all words they believe they can twist and co-opt for political gain. This can only be fought by calmly correcting a person who misuses words, never accepting this bastardization of language, never accepting that old words should have new meanings or for sins to be seen as virtues.

"Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!" Isaiah 5:20

We don't need to yell. We do need to stand fast.

I {and the dead fetus} am trying to get my brain around the concept of the term, "abortion care".

I see the skull of the fetus poking from the womb, being stabbed with scissors and the brain sucked out and am looking for the care part.

I hope not. To die unprepared, sudden and unrepentant, is the worst fate in the world, and in the world to come.

May God do what it takes --- may He strengthen us to do what it takes --- to bring her by the surest path to repentance.

It's what I'd wish and want for myself.

It’s like a man murdering his wife and saying “I did it because I believe in Marriage - in the beautiful Marriage I’m later going to have wih some other woman.”

Abortion is about government control over a woman’s body. They are just too stupid to understand that, which probably explains why they get “accidentally” pregnant in the first place and want an abortion.

This article invented a whole new grammar that I predict will see a lot of use.

For example:

“The Allied air forces supplied enormous amounts of bombing care to Berlin in 1944”

“Stalin provided first-rate genocide-care to the people of the Ukraine”

In other news, criminals the world over have pledged to only rob, rape and kill younger, smaller, and weaker victims, rather than indiscriminately robbing, raping and killing victims of all age groups and sizes.

Reminds me of a guy I used to work with - one day he self-righteously pronounced that he supported “a woman’s right to choose” because he felt that “every child should have a chance.”

Huh...WHAAAAA????

Yeah where do they get this crap? The left thinks they can rationalize anything by paraphrasing it with a witty catchphrase or a wink and a smile.
Common sense and critical thinking seriously need to be taught in schools because our school systems and the MSM are producing sociopaths on a massive scale.

Julie you dimwit, WAKE UP. Abortion is about being selfish and too lazy to take care of a child because you want to have fun and slap hips without repercussions...

...”Abortion is about murderhood, the farthest thing from motherhood there can possibly be”...

Yes..To declare that abortion is about Motherhood fries the brain and, as Glen Beck would say, makes the blood shoot right out of your eyes. Can we all say DOUBLESPEAK. All this is explained in the book “1984,” by George Orwell..He was just off by a few years in his predictions. Has the Western world ever had more hedonistic and immoral nations than exist now? You might say, “What about the cruelty of the dictators throughout history?” To which I would say, “These people would be that bad and worse if given a chance,” and I firmly believe that. We live in frightening times.
