WICHITA, Kan (Reuters)- Closed since 2009 after its doctor was murdered, one of the country's most embattled abortion clinics is scheduled to reopen this spring over renewed objections of abortion opponents.
Controversy over the clinic in Wichita, Kansas is building as the country observes the 40th anniversary on Tuesday of the Roe vs. Wade U.S. Supreme Court ruling that made abortion legal in at least the first three months of pregnancy.
An abortion rights group bought the building where George Tiller was among only a few doctors in the country to do late-term abortions before he was gunned down at a Wichita church. Scott Roeder is serving a life sentence after testifying that he killed Tiller, 67, to stop abortions.
Tiller owned the clinic and his family decided to close it down and withdraw from any involvement there after his murder.
Anti-abortion groups are trying to block or delay the reopening of the clinic through a rezoning petition and complaints to the city that permits haven't been issued as required for the clinic's indoor remodeling.
"Once they get the permits we'll be off to the next thing - we will try to persuade contractors not to work there," said Cheryl Sullenger of the Wichita chapter of Operation Rescue.
The attempted roadblocks cast in front of the clinic before it even opens are not discouraging leaders of the organization that bought the building, where abortions, family planning and other gynecological care would be offered.
"We will continue to move forward to see that women have their rights," said Julie Burkhart, who worked with Tiller's clinic for eight years on political and legislative issues. "It's incredibly important because women in this region need access to good medical care."
Since the clinic closed, women in the Wichita area have had to travel at least 150 miles to Oklahoma City or Kansas City for abortions.
Burkhart directs a non-profit organization called Trust Women Foundation Inc, which now owns the single-story, nearly windowless clinic building that sits between a busy highway and a neighborhood of single-family homes.
Tiller's murder spawned formation of the organization with the goal of reopening a clinic, Burkhart said. It took 2-1/2 years to plan a new clinic, look for possible locations and raise money to buy the building, she said. Burkhart is braced for persistent opposition.
"This is absolutely one of the most difficult things I have had to do in my life," said Burkhart, 46. "I have a lot of brave people working with me."
CONSTANT PICKETING
The clinic was the site of constant picketing. Burkhart's home has also been picketed and she has been referred to as a killer in anti-abortion brochures, she said.

Odds some rightwinger guns her down?
There are only four doctors left in the US who are willing to perform third trimester abortions, Tiller's claim to fame.

Again, you don't tell the whole story. Black Americans were already swayed to the Democrat Party by the late 1930s because of the New Deal and the Great Depression. Thousands had already fled the South by the 1960s.
Accusing the Republican Party of being against civil rights based on one Republican who supported the Constitution AND civil rights but believed it to be a states' rights issue instead of the federal government's is just part of the Big Lie and dismisses decades of legislation passed by Republicans precisely to ensure civil rights.
The majorty, if not all, of black Americans had already switched loyalites when big government came on the scene in the 1930s.
That's the problem of why we are where we are today. Not one Republican who has become the liberal's "straw man" to excuse their own sins of the past.
Like the PATRIOT Act? Real champions of liberty ya got there.

Taking 10 seconds to look into the foundation for a crazy argument like you were making is better than debating an idiot who makes assertions based on irrelevant notions.
So what the heck were you trying to say? I don't think you even know. Was it that rich people that dies in 1913 before WWII are somehow indicitive of the issues today, but tied to the NAZI Party, so that makes thing relevant in your mind?
How contorted! You liberals never cease to amaze.

That's pretty funny Carol, you're the one who said "It's payback time and the President is out to "get whitey",
You are the one who is the racist on here and becoming worse day by day, moreso since the President's re election.
No, I said that was Rev. Wright's message - it's all the white man's fault - the same Rev. Wright this president called his spiritual mentor for 20 years.

Why doesn't this president talk about real social justice which is equal opportunity?

But you fail to notice that Carol is using arguments from the Civil War era to make her case for Republiclowns?? Folks that died prior to the 20th century??

You're really an idiot, moonbat!!

You're just ashamed that you were clueless about American Capitalists support for Hitler.

And Sonic rubbed your face in your own ignorance!!

In the early automobile era, gasoline was considered a 'bridge' fuel.
They didn't think there was enough oil available to power lots of cars, so many believed that corn ethanol would be the fuel of the future.
Of course, John D. Rockefeller knew better, and became the world's wealthiest man by building Standard Oil, which Teddy Roosevelt tore apart as a trust-buster.

Interesting how the early days of "oil" unfolded, what a bunch of whors those cats were.
