Tiller's Troubles Far From Over as More KSBHA Complaints Advance
April 15, 2009
WICHITA, Kansas, (christiansunite.com) -- Letters from the Kansas State Board of Healing Arts have been received by two women notifying them that their complaints against late-term abortionist George Tiller remain open and are progressing through the system.
One woman, referred to by Operation Rescue only as Shaye, received a letter from the Board concerning her complaint that Tiller's staff intentionally falsified her sonogram measurements to make her baby appear younger in order to avoid having to comply with the Kansas late-term abortion law.
Another woman, who is referred to publicly as "Patient S." received notice that information she recently sent to the KSBHA concerning her botched abortion experience was added to a complaint filed earlier by Cheryl Sullenger, Senior Policy Advisor for Operation Rescue.
Patient S. suffered life-threatening abortion complications at Tiller's abortion clinic, including a high fever and respiratory and cardiac arrest during the abortion. She was transported to the hospital in Tiller's private vehicle, where he told her to keep her IV bag down so the protesters would not see it. She also suffered a staph infection on her face due to the apparent reuse of a dirty oxygen mask.
These complaints are in addition to the 11-count petition against Tiller made public by the KSBHA moments after "not guilty" verdicts were returned in Tiller's criminal case.
"Tiller's troubles are far from over, and his medical license remains at risk. With the changes at the Board, we are encouraged by news that these cases are moving forward," said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. "With so many accusations of wrong-doing against him, we have every hope that Tiller will eventually be held accountable for his actions."
Operation Rescue is one of the leading pro-life Christian activist organizations in the nation. Operation Rescue recently made headlines when it bought and closed an abortion clinic in Wichita, Kansas and has become the voice of the pro-life activist movement in America. Its activities are on the cutting edge of the abortion issue, taking direct action to restore legal personhood to the pre-born and stop abortion in obedience to biblical mandates.
