The FBI and the KBI are involved in the investigation and search for the suspect, which is expected to be in a wider area than the local Wichita, Kansas area.

Dr. George Tiller

Tiller has long been a target of protests by abortion opponents because his clinic, Women’s Health Care Services at 5701 E. Kellogg, is one of the few in the country where late-term abortions are performed. He was the physician medical director of an abortion clinic in Wichita, Women’s Health Care Services, which specializes in the provision of late-term procedures done, according to their web site, “to the time in the pregnancy when the fetus is viable”.

Video of George O’Reilly interview with a former Dr. Tiller patient named Kelly, who received an abortion at age 14.

On December 12, 2006 FOXNEWS host Bill O’Reilly conducted an interview with a woman named Kelly, who described an abortion procedure which involved a 5-day procedure of dilation of her cervix, followed by a third or fourth day procedure that involved the injection of a saline solution into the amniotic sac, which kills the fetus. On the last day of the procedure, the woman reported that she was placed in a room with 6 to 10 other women lying on beds while they wait until they are ready to evacuate the fetus. When each woman was ready for evacuation of the fetus, each was transferred to a wheelchair into a room with a toilet. The woman said that she was instructed to lean on a nurse and push the fetus into the toilet, which was accomplised. Finally, the woman said she was transferred to another room where she was injected with saline again to remove afterbirth materials. Kelly said she only saw Dr. Tiller during the two times she was injected with a saline solution. See FOXNEWS: Dr. Tiller Abortion Patient Speaks Out!
