Operation Rescue has delivered the sad news that Abortionist George Tiller was acquitted of all 19 misdemeanor charges brought against him.
Operation Rescue vows to continue efforts to bring Tiller to justice
Wichita, KS – Today a jury of three men and three women found George Tiller not guilty on 19 charges of illegal abortions.
Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue releases the following statement:
Justice has been denied! Today a jury found late-term abortionist George R. Tiller not guilty of having committed 19 illegal abortions in 2003. While disappointed in the verdict, we at Operation Rescue are not deterred in our commitment to one day bring Tiller to justice. The 19 charges that Tiller faces were only a small fraction of the illegal activity that we believe and have documented that occurs at Tiller’s Wichita abortion clinic. On behalf of the pre-born children wrongly killed by Tiller and his associates, we vow to press on until Tiller is finally held accountable to the law and his late-term abortion mill is permanently closed.
Cheryl Sullenger, Senior Policy Advisor for Operation Rescue releases the following statement:
We must remember that these are the weakest charges that could have been brought by the state. There were thirty criminal charges filed by former Attorney General Phill Kline, which were much stronger that were dismissed on jurisdictional grounds without having been considered on their merits. While we are disappointed by the verdict, we are far from surprised.
We thank Assistant Attorney General Barry Disney for the job that he tried to do. He did the best he could with the hand he was dealt. We wish he had been dealt a stronger hand. We are committed to continuing our efforts to bring Tiller to justice and we are confident that justice will one day prevail.
