Man Brings Explosive Device And Knives Into Wichita Women’s Clinic


Police say a man is in custody after he brought an improvised explosive device into a Wichita women’s health care clinic, which is in the same building where Dr. George Tiller provided abortions before he was gunned down in 2009 by a ‘pro-life’ religious Conservative.
















The clinic is one of only three in Kansas that offers abortion procedures.

According to the Associated Press, Wichita Police Department spokesman Doug Nolte says officers responded to the South Wind Women’s Center around 3:30 p.m. Monday.

When the man entered the clinic, he was asked if he had anything dangerous. The unidentified man told clinic workers he had knives and an explosive device in a backpack.

That’s when on-site security inspected the backpack and found that he did indeed have knives and the explosive device in his possession.

Clinic staff had to evacuate the building and a bomb squad was subsequently called in to remove the backpack.

Nolte says police are investigating whether the man intended to harm the clinic.

The FBI and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives are also investigating the incident.

These pro-lifers are killing us.

Scott Roeder, who was convicted of murdering Dr. Tiller, was allegedly affiliated Operation Rescue, the entity that consulted with the Center for Medical Progress to attack Planned Parenthood by using edited video footage of a conversation with a Planned Parenthood employee.

Operation Rescue denied any affiliation with Roeder, although, they posted online the doctor’s real home address and the address of his church , the Reformation of Lutheran Church — which is where Dr. Tiller was ultimately murdered by Roeder in 2009.

Roeder kept track of the state prosecution against Tiller via a senior member of Operation Rescue.

Cheryl Sullenger, senior policy adviser for Operation Rescue out of Wichita, admitted at the time that she had spoken to Roeder in the past.

Sullenger ended up serving about two years in prison after pleading guilty to conspiring to bomb an abortion clinic in California in 1988.

But remember, there is no War on Women. Just ask the aforementioned violent anti-choice activists, one of which is still in prison for murder.
