Breaking news.... Tiller family closes clinic.

The Wichita, Kan., abortion clinic run by murdered doctor George Tiller will be closed permanently, the Tiller family announced Tuesday as Rep. Louise Slaughter, D-N.Y., prepared to offer a House resolution honoring the slain abortion provider.
Tiller opened the Women's Health Care Services, Inc., in the 1970s and it served as one of three clinics in the country that performed controversial second- and third-term abortions.
"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," Tiller family attorneys Lee Thompson and Dan Monnat said in a statement.
"We are proud of the service and courage shown by our husband and father and know that women's health care needs have been met because of his dedication and service. That is a legacy that will never die. The family will honor Dr. Tiller's memory through private charitable activities," the attorneys said.
Tiller, who in March was acquitted on 19 misdemeanor charges related to his practice, was fatally shot while serving as an usher in his church on May 31. The murder drew a flood of denunciations from President Obama along with liberal and conservative lawmakers and abortion rights groups and abortion foes.
Attorney General Eric Holder ordered the U.S. Marshals' service to "increase security for a number of individuals and facilities" although officials provided no specifics.Fox news source.

Wasn't Tiller 1/3 of the late-term abortion providers in America? If so, then what the article doesn't say is that his family probably had to close the clinic down because they couldn't find another doctor willing to work for them. Which is the seed of a bigger story than their private causes will ever be . . .

I went to a pro life dinner last Feb, and a woman was there speaking with her husband about her abortion . Tiller didn't really have much to do with the process. He has others to do his dirty work. She told us about her late term abortion in detail,and how nasty Tillers staff had treated her. Her husband was heartbroken that he didn't arrive to stop the abortion in time. She was forced to have the abortion by her parents, her mother in particular. We were all fighting back the tears while she spoke.

These broken people are now steadfast pro-lifers, and that is why our ranks are growing. We frankly have a lot of broken , and pissed people walking around because of abortion.

The wounded patients are begining to turn on their providers. There is no loyalty in demonic camps.

He had others do his dirty deeds for him? Well, that makes sense, too . . . and makes his crime worse, somehow.

The woman's story is heartbreaking. The pro-abortion side may play the suffering card a lot, but it has no idea.
