A sixteen-year-old Kansas girl was allegedly forced by her mother to undergo an abortion on Wednesday at an abortion clinic run by the notorious late-term abortionist George Tiller. Reportedly both the teenage girl and the baby’s father, who was also sixteen, objected to the abortion. The young father arrived at the clinic too late to stop the abortion, a pro-life group says.
According to an incident report from the Kansas Coalition for Life (KCFL) the sixteen-year-old girl was two months pregnant. Her mother brought her to the Women’s Health Care Services clinic in Wichita for the abortion at 11:00 a.m. on Wednesday.
The KCFL says that Dillon, the reported father of the baby, arrived at the clinic in his own vehicle in the early afternoon. He reportedly told Jennifer McCoy, who was a KCFL pro-life counselor at the site, that his parents were willing to raise or adopt the baby and do whatever they could to help the teenage parents. Dillon claimed that he planned to marry his girlfriend when they graduated from high school and that his parents were supportive of the idea.
According to Dillon, only the girl’s mother wanted her to have the abortion and had threatened to disown the girl if she did not have one.
Jennifer McCoy sent Dillon into the abortion clinic to talk to the girl and to tell her that if she said she did not want the abortion, KCFL could call police to intervene on her behalf.
Thirty minutes after Dillon entered the clinic he, his girlfriend, and his girlfriend’s mother came to the gate and left the parking lot in their cars. According to KCFL the girl was crying, but her mother did not stop at the gate.
Dillon, also crying, stopped at the gate and told KCFL that he was just minutes too late. The baby was already dead when he was allowed to talk to his girlfriend. He asked KCFL to dedicate one of the on-site crosses to his baby as a memorial.
KCFL claims that organization volunteers have witnessed at least four similar incidents since they began their continuous presence at the clinic on Mother’s Day in 2004.
“It is not an uncommon scenario, and most young girls simply do not know their rights in this regard,” KCFL said.
