WICHITA, KS, June 13, 2014 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Dr. Cheryl Chastine, the successor of George Tiller at a Wichita facility, says she became an abortionist out of “a moral obligation” and that if she stopped performing abortions, it would constitute “a victory for terrorism.”
“When I was in medical school I got the message that there is a shortage of abortion providers and that, therefore, if more of us, including myself, did not become providers, that there would be women who [would] not be able to access abortion when they needed it. So, when I got the call to help open this clinic, I felt a very strong pull of moral obligation,” Chastine said in an interview on the far-left program Democracy Now! hosted by Amy Goodman last week.
“I went to medical school to help people, same as all of us do,” she told co-host Nermeen Shaikh. “So, I felt like ... I could not in good conscience say no.”
“If I allow myself to be deterred during this work, then I am allowing a victory for terrorism,” she said. While stating that people who shoot abortionists “are admittedly on the fringe,” she claimed “they are nonetheless encouraged by the mainstream movement.”
Chastine is the medical director and primary abortionist at South Wind Women’s Center in Wichita, a facility that performed 1,200 abortions last year. Because state law bars insurance coverage for abortion, “all of our patients are paying out-of-pocket for the procedure, which is a significant amount,” she said.
But Eric Scheidler of the Pro-Life Action League told LifeSiteNews.com he doesn't believe money is Chastine's primary motivation.
“I've always thought that she was more of an ideologically motivated abortionist,” he said. “I think that she's sincere when she says that” abortion helps women. He said it made him feel “real sorrow that someone's moral compass would be so misaligned with reality, with what women really need.”
“I can't guess what in her own experience may have led her to this belief, but she's certainly wrong,” he said. Chastine, who has never said she has had an abortion, has stated on her Twitter feed that she has suffered from numerous bouts of depression.
“In some way, it's easier to understand the abortionist who doesn't believe in anything and wants to exploit this opportunity to make a whole lot of money and take advantage of people for their own personal gain,” Scheidler said.
Chastine has said she has suffered for her devotion to abortion. “As a result of my choice to do abortion work, I have given up a number of things that most people and most physicians take for granted,” she told MSNBC late last month. “I have lost my private, full-spectrum family medicine practice. I lost my relationship with my practice partner. I've lost job offers that had been previously extended to me, and I've had a number of personal relationships become strained.”
One of those positions was at Total Wellness, Inc., located in the affluent Chicago suburb of Oak Park. Scheidler said he believes “she was fired from that job because of all the controversy she brought to that office.” Scheidler and Jill Stanek, who are both based in Illinois, helped organize multiple protests outside the business.
Chastine, who has been making the rounds of left-leaning media, had shunned the spotlight when she first began flying from Illinois to Kansas. She told an Operation Rescue investigator, “I had been hoping not to be mentioned by name” after it discovered her affiliation with SWWC.
The facility is operated by Julie Burkhart, the former leader of George Tiller's political action committee, ProKanDo. She opened SWWC on the grounds of Tiller's practice, using the services of out-of-state abortionists Chastine and Valencia Stevens of Arizona. Burkhart has had her share of jaw-dropping comments, as well. “Abortion is about motherhood,” Burkhart told Mother Jones magazine last year.
“It just goes to shows how warped our culture is, and how big a challenge we have as pro-lifers,” Scheidler told LifeSiteNews. “The only way we can do that is with love.”
“Clearly we are living in a culture that is lacking love – God's love, love of our fellow man, love that is supposed to knit men and women together – all of these things are missing. Only in the absence of true love could you believe that abortion could be the answer to anyone's problems,” he said.
“I think we have too much of a tendency to be angry with people who are in the dark for being in the dark. It's our responsibility to shine the light,” he continued. “The light is Christ, and the only way they're going to see it is through us. We have to love those who are helping her do it as best as we can. It's really the only solution.”
Scheidler revealed that Chastine is one of the three people he prayed for every day during Lent. “I prayed for her while I was in Rome visiting the tombs of the martyrs,” he said.
This coming from a MASS MURDERER.

I’m sure Hitler as well had some sort of “moral justification” he believed for killing 7 million Jews.
Woe to those who place bitter for sweet, darkness for light, deception for truth, evil for good.
Mass murderer is actually factual, and all who are complicit will be held to account.
Isn’t there some biblical reference to end times that “evil will be regarded as good, good as evil, ...?”
Section 7. All human life is precious and a gift from God. Age is counted from the moment life begins, which is at the moment of conception and as such, all human life is protected from conception to death and has the full rights of this Constitution from conception. Any citizen of the Republic of Maine may use what ever force he or she deems necessary to protect human life. All abortions are considered first degree premeditated murder, children are entrusted, by God the Creator to that child's parents and as such are the responsibility of the parents, not the state, no level of Government whether local, county or Republic is to, in any way, over rule a parent in the rearing, educating, and/or influencing that child in any way.
Section 7a. Education. All education is left to the local community, to the parents first and foremost and then to the city, town or community in which the family resides. The counties and the Republic are explicitly denied any role in a child's education with the exception of Militia members while on duty and prisoners while in the care of the county jail or prison of the Republic. The first and foremost responsibility to teach a child Religion, obedience, patriotism, loyalty, righteousness, and to be a productive member of society rest squarely upon the shoulders of the parent(s), the local communities role is to support and reinforce that parental responsibility.

Isaiah chapter five
I wonder whether this is how Mengele justified his work
Ya got the “call”.
.....from whom, exactly??
Except that there are very, very, very few abortions that are needed. Almost all are elective, voluntary procedures to kill the baby. So, much for this angel.
George Tillers successor: If I quit performing abortions, the terrorists win
So babies are now terrorists? Because that is who wins if you stop murdering them........
When I was in medical school I got the message that there is a shortage of abortion providers and that, therefore, if more of us, including myself, did not become providers, that there would be women who [would] not be able to access abortion when they needed it. So, when I got the call to help open this clinic, I felt a very strong pull of moral obligation.
I went to medical school to help people, same as all of us do. So, I felt like...I could not in good conscience say no.
If I allow myself to be deterred during this work, then I am allowing a victory for terrorism.
She is the terrorist. Another self deluded criminal butcher.
A modern day Mengele, who justifies their butchery with grandeurs oof seld delusion.
She, like her mentor, Tiller, before her, will have her reward.
The folks KILLING 55 MILLION BABIES ARE THE TERRORISTS!!!!!
Allowing babies to live to be born = terrorism. < /sickness >
If she thinks it is such a compelling moral obligation, would she donate her pay to a charity, like for example, a home for pregnant teens who choose to give birth or to adoption outreach services, or maybe to the local crisis pregnancy center?
I guess it all depends on what the meaning of the word “people” is.
Then, he and Tiller will one day get to meet each other. I wonder if Tiller had a chance today to reconsider his murdering of the innocent, would he change his stance. Probably not, but now the shoe is on the other foot and he is tormented while those he murdered are comforted.
Terrorists? She calls who the terrorists?
She talks about all she has lost.
Good grief, she’s going to lose eternal life in heaven too. But I wonder if she even thinks about that.
Yes there is, and this guy is most definitely evil.
His logic baffles me. Then again, Satan’s minions are easy to spot and usually make no sense to the clear headed.
