Slain Abortion Doctor George Tiller’s Clinic Reopens Four Years Later
It’s been four years since the death of the Kansas abortion doctor, and his clinic has finally reopened.
The clinic has been closed since Dr. George Tiller was slain in a Wichita church in May 2009. Scott Roeder is serving a life sentence over the slaying after testifying that he killed Tiller, 67, to stop abortions.
Abortions at the new clinic, called South Wind Women’s Center, will be done through the 14th week of pregnancy, even though abortions are legal through about 20 weeks under Kansas law, said Julie Burkhart, director of the Trust Women Foundation, which owns the clinic.
