Infamous late-term abortion provider's clinic vandalized

.- Abortion practitioner George Tiller’s abortion center was vandalized Tuesday night.

The perpetrators were able to get by the security cameras, cut a hole in the roof and insert a garden hose to flood the abortion center. In addition, the perpetrators tried to seal the gate to the parking lot so no one could enter. However, firemen were able to gain access through the gate before the sealant dried.

Tiller is currently the subject of 19 misdemeanor charges for illegal abortions.

One leading pro-life observer told LifeNews.com that someone affiliated with Tiller's abortion center may have caused the vandalism to try to take the spotlight off of the investigation by Attorney General Paul Morrison, to damage other files that could show other violations, or to engender public sympathy.

As a response to the charges, Tiller’s attorneys filed a lawsuit on Monday, claiming that Kansas law is unconstitutional. They argued that the law requiring two or more doctors to sign off on late-term abortions is invalid.

In their motion, they also seek to dismiss the 19 misdemeanor charges, which could have Tiller in jail as long as 19 years if convicted. He could also be fined $2,500 per violation and lose his medical license.
