Another Woman Injured by Abortion Taken to Hospital From George Tiller’s Center

Wichita, KS (LifeNews.com) — It appears another woman injured by an abortion has been taken from the late-term abortion business run by George Tiller to a local hospital. This is the second woman to need urgent medical care and attention in the last seven days, as a previous patient says Tiller’s staff provided shoddy medical care.
In this new case, an ambulance arrived at the Women’s Health Care Services abortion center about 6:30 p.m. Wednesday evening with lights flashing and sirens blaring.
Brandi Lozier was volunteering for the Kansas Coalition for Life outside the abortion facility at the time.
She observers an employee driving a van registered to Tiller entering the parking lot at a high rate of speed carrying a Caucasian woman who appeared to be in distress. The van pulled around to the back of the building and began to sound the horn.
Lozier called 911 and asked for help and it is unclear whether her call or one from abortion center staff alerted paramedics to arrive at the abortion business.
Operation Rescue, a pro-life group that closely monitor’s Tiller’s abortion center, tells LifeNews.com that this is the first time an ambulance has been seen at his abortion business since July 2005 — but only because Tiller has made it a practice of transporting injured patients to a local medical center himself to draw attention away from complications from the abortions.
Last Thursday, a patient who suffered numerous problems following an abortion at Tiller’s center was taken in Tiller’s personal vehicle to a local hospital.
OR president Troy Newman says he doesn’t understand why local officials allow Tiller’s center to stay open.
"We have a crisis situation right now at Tiller’s abortion business, and we are wondering what the body count has to be before the state regulators will close it down," he said.
"Tiller’s clinic has become little more than a dangerous abortion chop shop," he said. "This is intolerable and we demand that Women’s Health Care Services be immediately closed in order to prevent further injury and death. We are exploring every legal action to make sure that happens."
