La Quinta Inns has ordered late-term abortionist George Tiller to stop using its hotels to provide ongoing medical care to abortion patients undergoing multiple-day procedures at his clinic, reported Operation Rescue.
Due to pressure from pro-life organizations, the corporate head office sent an investigator to Wichita and discovered that Tiller’s nurses were renting rooms at the local La Quinta Inn in order to provide ongoing medical care to abortion patients.
La Quinta Inn representative Teresa Ferguson informed Operation Rescue that Tiller was called by the corporate office and told to immediately stop the practice, which they had determined to be an illegal one.
"Thanks to hundreds of men and women of conscience who called and brought Tiller's association with the La Quinta to the attention of the corporate office, an end has been put to this apparently illegal arrangement," said Operation Rescue president Troy Newman.
