The Associated Press reports that the Trust Women Foundation Inc. purchased the shuttered clinic last month. Executive Director Julia Burkhart explained that the new clinic will not perform late-term abortions but will conduct procedures earlier in a woman's pregnancy. [In November of last year, The Pitch's Justin Kendall looked at the charged atmosphere over abortion in Kansas based on the state's dogged pursuit of Ann Kristin Neuhaus, a doctor who had provided second-opinion mental-health exams to Tiller's patients seeking late-term abortions.]
The facility has been closed since Tiller was murdered by Scott Roeder in May 2009. Trust Women is looking to open the clinic between November and January of 2013.
