The Trust Women PAC (political action committee) is making robo-calls on behalf of Jean Schodorf, the sole pro-abortion GOP primary candidate in the Wichita-area 4th district congressional district race.
The phone message is voiced by hard-line abortion defender and former Kansas Senator, Pat Ransom, saying former U.S. Senator Nancy Landon-Kassebaum also supports Schodorf.
But this PAC is the self-described “Tiller legacy” PAC, created “to protect the rights of physicians who provide comprehensive reproductive health care, including later termination.” (translation of later: third trimester destruction, even when the unborn child is viable)
Burkhart left Tiller’s employment during the time the state medical board had filed a non-public petition to take his medical license. But before she left, Burkhart attempted to silence a late-term-abortion victim who had filed suit against Tiller. (This purported event was reported by Kansans for Life to the state Healing Arts Board.)
According to the victim–who had nearly died from the Sept. 2008 Wichita abortion– Burkhart offered her $700,000 to drop the lawsuit. The victim reported the improper “attorney-circumventing” offer to her attorney, who took appropriate steps. With Tiller’s death and the clinic closure, such lawsuits will never see the inside of a courtroom.
Unfortunately, without the details of mistreatment and malpractice in a trial setting, ideologues can more easily promote a sanitized “Tiller legacy” tailored to electing pro-abortion candidates.
Primary elections are Tuesday, Aug.3. For Kansans for Life’s list of endorsed candidates, see www.voteprolife.net.
