It has been recently discovered from Operation Rescue that one of the doctors has been providing a second signature for patients on behalf of abortionist George R. Tiller that is needed before getting post-viability abortions. Burtram Odenheimer, MD, is a neurologist who is certified in psychiatry, but has also in secret seeing patients of Tiller’s at his office in the Wichita Clinic, a non-abortion center in Kansas.
According to Kansas law, an unassociated doctor must agree with the abortionist that a post-viability abortion is necessary in stopping “substantial and irreversible impairment of a major bodily function” of the mother. Tiller recently uses the mental health loophole that is allegedly implied in the law as an excuse to abort late-term babies up until before birth.
Operation Rescue have reason to believe of several doctors being connected with the Wichita Clinic, who have also been getting signatures for Tiller’s post-viability abortion patients.
“Odenheimer and others are working secretly with Tiller”, states President Troy Newman, “Because they do not want the community to know that they are associated with his disreputable late-term abortion practice. However, the public has a right to know who is propping up Tiller’s abortion business.
“Since Tiller’s late-term abortion patients come from every state, we urge pro-lifers everywhere to contact the Wichita Clinic Board President Jerry Niernberger and voice opposition to his clinic’s part in aiding and abetting Tiller’s horrific late-term abortion business.”
Operation Rescue is launching protests at the Wichita Clinic and sponsor prayer walks in Odenheimer’s exclusive neighborhood, which is located close to 21st Street and Webb Road.
“The Wichita Clinic and Odenheimer are abortion collaborators” Newman continues. “Their help enables Tiller to continue aborting late-term babies. We call on pro-life supporters in Wichita to boycott the Wichita Clinic as well as Odenheimer’s practice.”
