This Is Good News

Via TPM and McClatchy that Women’s Health Care Services, Inc in Wichita, Kansas will open to provide health care for women next week.  Only by closing their doors do the terrorists, the women-haters the right-wing religious fanatics win.

It does take real courage, not only for the doctor but also for the rest of the staff (read: lower paid) to go to work at a place that has seen so much hate and violence directed at it.

According to the NY Times:

In 1986, a bomb exploded on the roof of his clinic here, Women’s Health Care Services. In 1991, some 2,000 protesters were arrested outside during summer-long protests; in 1993, Dr. Tiller was shot in both arms by an anti-abortion activist while driving away from the clinic. Protests continue there almost daily.

On March 27 of this year it took a jury just 45-minutes to acquit Dr. Tiller “of charges that he performed 19 illegal late-term abortions in 2003.”  Forty-five minutes is barely enough time to elect a jury fore person and go to the bathroom.  Sounds like a witch-hunt to me.

So, to Re-Cap: Women can still receive safe health care that is still legal in the state of Kansas beginning next week.

“The need of the moment is not one religion, but mutual respect and tolerance of the devotees of the different religions.” Mahatma Gandi
