Wichita, KS (LifeNews.com) — The home of a pro-life advocate in Kansas was the target of an egg attack overnight, just 2 days before a contentious election that centers on the abortion issue. This is the second state where pro-abortion vandalism has occurred, as South Dakota pro-life advocates have been the targets of an organized campaign of attacks.
The abortion advocates targeted the home of Cheryl Sullenger, who heads up the Kansans for Truth In Politics (K-TIP) political action committee and has been active in helping to expose problems at abortion facilities in the state.
They pelted her home with dozens of eggs.
Sullenger’s sweeping front yard bears several political yard signs, including three in support of pro-life Attorney General Phill Kline. Her vehicles display pro-life bumper stickers.
She believes the attack was retribution for her opposition to pro-abortion Democratic attorney general candidate Paul Morrison, who has been in a fierce battle over abortion with Kline.
“This is nothing more than thuggery and an attempt to intimidate us in the final hours before the election,” said Sullenger, in a statement provided to LifeNews.com.
“It is a shame that Morrison supporters would stoop to these kinds of cowardly tactics," Sullenger said, blaming the candidate and his backers.
"This really shows how low these people will go. But it’s not going to work. The attack on my home will not silence our message," she added.
The attack comes on the heels of a rash of vandalism of hundreds of signs in South Dakota promoting Referred Law 6, the state’s abortion ban. Abortion advocates also vandalized a Catholic church and high school.
K-TIP has released several reports documenting the link between Morrison, and late-term abortion practitioner George Tiller through intermediate organizations and heavily financed mailings attacking Kline.
Kline has been leading an investigation in the state into whether some of the late-term abortions done there were against the law and whether Tiller’s abortion center and one abortion business run by Planned Parenthood failed to report incidents of statutory rape to authorities.
Morrison has said he would end the probe.
Sullenger also works for Operation Rescue and has produced a number of reports exposing Tiller and documenting botched abortions at his business, Women’s Health Care Services. Tiller escaped prosecution in the botched abortion death of Cristin Gilbert, a mentally disabled 18 year-old girl from Texas.
