Dr. Tiller’s Clinic “Permanently Closed” After His Death


After Dr. George Tiller was shot and killed May 31 as he served as an
usher at the Lutheran church he regularly attended, his family
announced Tuesday that his clinic, Women’s Health Care Services Inc.,
in Wichita, Kansas will be "permanently closed," according to Associated Press.

Tiller’s attorneys released a statement that said his family will cease
operation of the clinic and any involvement by family members in
similar clinics.

"We are proud of the service and courage shown by our husband and
father and know that women’s health care needs have been met because of
his dedication and service," the family said.

    for the heads up about the post and the blog. RH Reality Check does not support or condone violence in any capacity, against anyone and we’ve removed a comment (and, unfortunately, Colleen’s helpful response) that seems to encourage violent responses to Dr. Tiller’s murder.

    As per our commenting policy, we will not allow comments or links to blogs, sites or posts that promote or encourage violence or threatening tactics. Thanks to ever diligent community members like Colleen!

    By closing the clinic it lets the crazies know that they have “won” and that their tactics are effective. Where does that leave the women in this country that needed Dr. Tiller’s services?
