.- Dr. George Tiller reopened his late-term abortion clinic yesterday, after having been closed a record total of 38 days because of vandalism according to Tiller. However, Operation Rescue representatives doubt that the vandalism is the real reason for the clinics prolonged closure.

As the protestors stood in front of the clinic, they observed a Lowe’s delivery truck dropping off a load of drywall and other materials, which reportedly indicated that repairs were underway at the clinic. They reasoned that if Tiller’s abortion clinic was closed because of vandalism then he would not have re-opened before having made repairs.

Pro-life supporters, affiliated with Operation Rescue, stood outside the clinic and observed six women enter the clinic for abortions, far below the usual numbers. Sidewalk Counselor Donna Lampkin reported one couple changed their minds at the gate of the clinic and decided to keep their baby.

Operation Rescue President Troy Newman said his organization has helped to close more than two dozen abortion clinics. Operation Rescue moved its headquarters to Wichita to now focus efforts on Tiller’s late-term abortion business.

Tiller faces 19 criminal charges for having committed illegal late-term abortions and faces up to 19 years in jail if convicted.

“We are working very hard to make sure that the next time Tiller's abortion mill closes, it will be for good," said Newman
