KFL on still-unresolved case with illegal late-term abortions

Tuesday, March 3rd, 2009

From KFL:

Judge Clark Owens rejects the motion to dismiss the charges against Tiller.

About a year ago, Tiller’s attorneys made a motion to dismiss all the charges against Dr. George Tiller, the infamous late-term abortionist in Wichita.  The attorneys called witness after witness including two former Attorneys General.  They questioned every document and questioned every witness until all options were exhausted.  They made several implications, innuendos, and suppositions about the charges trying to detract from the actual evidence.

Judge Clark Owens listened patiently to all the witnesses and all the arguments.  Seldom did he overrule an objection and actually extended extra time to Tiller’s attorneys when they requested it.  Judge Owens studied voluminous documents.

The result:  The highest paid attorneys, working for the infamous George Tiller, presenting their best case and bringing all their powerful influence; could not get the charges dismissed.  The Rule of Law is still alive in Sedgwick County.

Tiller will be going to trial.

AND he will be tried on the evidence and the merits of the case – period.

Finally, be aware that Tiller’s attorneys do not want the real evidence submitted to the Court, so we are sure there will be many more objections, appeals, and other antics designed to delay the inevitable.

But today, we thank God for Judge Owens’ ruling.

Kansas has competition in profitable late-term abortion business

LifeNews:

Madison, WI (LifeNews.com) — Two days after the Authority Board of the University of Wisconsin Hospital and Clinics approved a plan to create a second trimester abortion facility a second vote gave the go ahead. This time, the board of the Madison Surgery Center decided 6-0 to move the proposed abortion facility forward.

Dr. Nancy Fredericks, an anesthesiologist at the surgery center, was one of the leading opponents of the idea and told the board that it would hurt the reputation of the center to do late-term abortions there.

According to the Wisconsin State Journal, Fredericks said three of the four anesthesiologists at the surgery center will not take part in the abortions. An MSC spokeswoman said that wouldn’t affect its ability to do abortions.

The vote means that second-trimester abortions will be done again in Wisconsin within a matter of weeks or a few months.

The facility, which will be located at 1 S. Park St in Madison, will do approximately 125 abortions annually on women whose unborn children are about 19 to 22 weeks along.
