Tiller found not guilty: pro-life forces vow to continue fight

OneNewsNow and the Associated Press - 3/28/2009 4:00:00 AM

A Kansas jury has found notorious abortionist, George Tiller, not guilty on all counts.

Tiller faced 19 misdemeanor charges that accused him of violating state laws involving late-term abortions. Cheryl Sullinger of Operation Rescue tells OneNewsNow they were disappointed with the verdict.

"We have to remember that these were the weakest of the charges that could have been brought by the state," she notes. "There were 30 charges that had been brought by former Attorney General Phil Kline in 2006 that were dismissed on jurisdictional reasons without having ever been considered on their merit." Had Tiller faced those charges, Sullinger is confident he would have been convicted.

Operation Rescue was at the forefront of the investigation, so Sullinger was asked if they are finished with Tiller. "We have a number of other projects, and we believe that there's [sic] plenty of things that Tiller has done that violated the law that eventually, we're just going to keep pressing on until we finally get justice and we finally get a conviction," she concludes.
