ANALYSIS/OPINION:

In her Tuesday, “On the family” column, “Lessons learned in clinic probes,” Cheryl Wetzstein accurately tallies the score at 2-0, with pro-lifers on the losing side, in battles with late-term abortionist Dr. George Tiller and Planned Parenthood, because Kansas grand juries failed to indict them. However, the battle is not over and won’t be until the killing stops.

Dr. Tiller is charged with illegal third-term abortions when the baby is fully formed and capable of surviving outside the womb. Kansas law requires that an unaffiliated physician must concur with the abortionist that a post-viability abortion is necessary to prevent “substantial and irreversible impairment of a major bodily function” of the mother.

Dr. Tiller had apparently at times violated the law by having a business partner vouch for them rather than obtaining an independent analysis from another doctor.

Pro-lifers have just made another hit against Dr. Tiller’s pro-abortion Kansas loyalists, headed by Gov. Kathleen Sebelius.

Dr. Tiller was secretly using physicians from the University of Kansas School of Medicine to co-sign for his third-trimester abortions, but when pro-lifers publicized this, the physicians immediately stopped, as they did not want it known they were involved in this despicable practice.

No self-respecting physician wants to be associated with Dr. Tiller’s baby killing, so it will be even more difficult now for him to continue the killing. Score one for pro-lifers.
