Wichita, KS (LifeNews.com) — A pro-life group that purchased an abortion business in Wichita, Kansas and has closed it down permanently has invited pro-abortion Gov. Kathleen Sebelius to tour it. The organization wants Sebelius, who has vetoed legislation to inspect abortion centers, to see how deplorable the conditions were at the Central Women’s Services abortion facility.

Operation Rescue is calling for emergency inspections of the four remaining Kansas abortion mills in light of the filthy and unsafe conditions the group found at CWS after thoroughly examining the building after the purchase.

The pro-life group discovered horrific, unclean conditions in addition to out-of-code electrical wiring and plumbing, broken ceilings, and evidence of roach and rodent infestations.

This is the second Kansas abortion center discovered to have horrendous conditions.

Last year, a Kansas City abortion business run by Krishna Rajanna was found to be filthy and infested with rodents. Food and aborted baby bodies were stored in the same refrigerator and there were allegations reported by a Kansas City police detective of suspected cannibalism. Rajanna eventually lost his medical license and his abortion center was closed.

In April, 2005, Gov. Kathleen Sebelius vetoed HB 2503, a bill that would have required abortion centers to meet basic minimum standards.

In her veto statement she said, “As governor, nothing is more important to me than the safety and good health of our citizens."

“If Sebelius was telling the truth, she will order immediate emergency inspections of all remaining abortion clinics in the state of Kansas, and close those where similar conditions exist in the interest of public health and safety,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman.

“Both closed abortion offices in the past year have been found to have conditions that no human being should ever have to endure," Newman said in a statement provided to LifeNews.com.

“A crisis exists in the Kansas abortion industry and Sebelius has done everything she could to allow these shocking conditions to continue to exist,” Newman added. “She was just plain wrong to veto clinic regulations, and we now own the building that proves it.”
