Once again, Wichita KS’ religious right and fringe anti-abortion groups are trying to bully a Nebraska abortion provider who wants to start a practice in Wichita. They use the same tactics that the right has been using to try and stop health care. They create mobs that claim to represent the majority of opinion when the majority of us know they are clearly a fringe element of the right. They believe they can use the legal system and stall tactics they used on Tiller to try and stop him.
Having Scott Roeder kill Tiller and stop his clinic was not enough for them. Now they have to prevent abortion rights advocates from being able to provide for women’s health care as Wichita always has

Abortion opponents start to fight Nebraska doctor planning clinic in Kansas
BY JOE RODRIGUEZ
A group of Wichita abortion opponents said Thursday that they want state regulators to re-examine a complaint against a doctor who said he plans to open a late-term abortion practice in Kansas.
LeRoy Carhart, a Nebraska abortion provider, said this week that his "main choice" would be to locate the clinic in Wichita. Carhart was one of four doctors who performed late-term abortions at George Tiller's Wichita clinic on East Kellogg, which closed after Tiller was shot to death May 31.
In response to Carhart's announcement, about 12 church pastors and other abortion opponents said they have asked the Kansas Board of Healing Arts to re-examine a 2007 complaint that Carhart and other abortion providers violated a state law that requires a concurring independent opinion from a second physician before a late-term abortion can be performed.
The 2007 complaint was filed by Kansans for Life, said David Gittrich, its state development director. He was among the abortion opponents at a Thursday news conference at Northwest Christian Church, 10850 W. 21st St.
"We want our petition re-investigated," Gittrich said.
