Kansas Right To Life Condemns Tiller Murder

http://stream.publicbroadcasting.net/production/mp3/kcur/local-kcur-840432.mp3

Kansas City , Mo. – Kansas is among the majority of states that has a ban on abortions performed after 21 weeks. Mary Kay Culp, Executive Director of Kansans for Life, says the ban isn't very well enforced, and the group's been paying extra attention to the issue since a jury recently acquitted Dr. George Tiller in a case challenging his use of second opinions.

But Culp says Sunday's killing is inconsistent with the way Kansans for Life operates.

Mary Kay Culp: "We get citizens together. We don't approve of violence at all. It goes against the way we area organized and goes against everything we believe in."

Culp says the actions of militants do not represent the agenda of the anti-abortion movement and are a setback to its goals.
