Pro-Life Group Focuses on Businesses Helping Late-Term Abortion Practitioner

Wichita, KS (LifeNews.com) — In a continued effort to put pressure on Kansas late-term abortion practitioner George Tiller in the wake of the failure of the state government holding him accountable for potentially illegal abortions, Operation Rescue has released a list of businesses he works with.
The pro-life group launched the project in 2004 called the Abortion Collaborators, and it initially compiled a list of 50 businesses that did work for Tiller’s late-term abortion business Women’s Health Care Services.
Since then, 25 businesses have stopped collaborating with Tiller. Five more have been added to the list, which now contains 30 businesses that work with his center.
The list includes everything from Holiday Inn Select, which provides discounted rates for Tiller’s patients, to Intrust Bank, where Tiller does business. It also includes Tiller’s landscaping company, his security firm, and the business that provides services on his copy machine.
Operation Rescue president Troy Newman tells LifeNews.com the list is more than just a boycott list. Released one day after the Wichita Clinic stopped helping Tiller, he says it’s a way to hurt Tiller’s abortion business financially.
"Tiller’s political cronies may be willing to prop up Tiller’s business, but the community proved this week that it is not," he said of the Wichita Clinic decision.
Newman said he hopes pro-life advocates will avoid these business and, more importantly, contact them and ask them to stop participating in the promotion and enabling of abortion.
"Some attempt to justify these dealings with abortionists as simply a business decision," Newman added. "However, history has clearly spoken on this matter. Throughout time and across the globe it has been considered morally reprehensible to collaborate with those who would callously destroy innocent lives."
The pro-life organization encourages the public to review the list of Tiller Abortion Collaborators, and as they are led, contact them and ask them to stop doing business with Tiller.
