Tiller's Death Camp to Close It's Doors Forever; Operation Rescue Interested Buyer

WICHITA, Kansas, June 9, 2009
Kathleen Gilbert, of Life Site News reports that 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 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.

The Associated Press reports that Pro-Life group, Operation Rescue, expressed strong interest in buying the facility. In 2006, the group purchased a former abortion clinic for its' headquarters and could use more space.
