Wichita, KS (LifeNews.com) — A pro-life group that recently purchased a local abortion business in Wichita and closed it down has announced that the facility is open for public inspection. The group hopes the public will take the time to see what shoddy conditions existed at the abortion center that women were subjected to during abortions there.

Operation Rescue recently purchased the Central Women’s Services abortion facility and last week it 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 site.

Now OR is making the facility available for public inspection at the end of the week.

“We want the community to see the squalid conditions at this abortion mill for themselves before renovations begin,” OR president Troy Newman said in a statement provided to LifeNews.com. “Viewing this facility really brings home the grim reality of abortion in America today and the human tragedy of the thousands of children who died here over the past 23 years.”

Newman said the invitation is open to the media, the public an abortion advocates as well. He also extended an offer for women who had abortions there to return to get post-abortion help if they want it.

“We especially invite women who may have had abortions at Central Women’s Services to return and grieve for their babies,” Newman added. “Christians will be standing by to offer prayer and help for post-abortive women, if necessary.”

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," Newman said.
