Abortion foes resurrect zoning challenge to clinic

KSAL StaffAugust 13, 2013

The Wichita City Council has taken no action on efforts by abortion foes to use zoning laws to drive out an abortion clinic.

Representatives from four groups asked the council on Tuesday to rezone the property of the South Wind Women’s Center to prohibit abortions. A similar effort earlier this year to rezone it was rejected by the city planning commission.

Wichita-based nonprofit Trust Women Foundation Inc. opened a clinic earlier this year in the building owned by slain abortion provider George Tiller. The property had been used for medical purposes since 1937 and was zoned to allow a medical office when the abortion rights group bought it.

The latest anti-abortion move is spearheaded Kansans for Life, Operation Rescue, World of Life Church and the Kansas Coalition for Life.
