Christians Suffer Chemical Attack at Abortion Clinic

Two pro-life Christians praying at the site of a Wichita late-term abortion clinic operated by George Tiller were targeted by chemical exposure to fumes, with one woman hospitalized

-- From "Chemical Attack on Pro-lifers at Abortion Clinic Sickens Two" posted at Christian Newswire 11/13/08

One of the pro-lifers, Jennifer McCoy, was treated for four hours at a local hospital emergency room suffering from vomiting, diarrhea, and swelling of the face and eyes.

Another woman, Brandi Lozier, was with McCoy praying outside the abortion clinic in the early morning hours of Sunday, November 2, 2008, as part of the 40 Days For Life event. She suffered similar symptoms, but was not hospitalized.

Hazmat was called to the abortion clinic and treated the area with a kitty-litter type of substance in order to absorb the noxious oily spill.

After being released from the hospital, McCoy filed a complaint with the Wichita Police Department, but, a week and a half later, arrest and prosecution of the unknown perpetrator seems unlikely.

This was not the first of such attacks on pro-lifers who minister outside Tiller's abortion mill. In September, 2007, Tiller's security guard, John Rayburn, was photographed with a "stink bomb" that also sickened those on the scene. Prosecutors refused to file charges, and efforts to hold Tiller accountable in small claims court failed.
