Oak Park, Ill., May 20, 2013—There’s only one abortion clinic in the state of Kansas, and Oak Park family doctor Cheryl Chastine owns it. The clinic, South Wind Women’s Center, recently opened in the same office in Wichita where notorious abortionist George Tiller operated. Like the recently convicted Kermit Gosnell, Tiller performed late term abortions on babies that were unquestionably old enough to survive outside the womb.
Kansas law requires that medical facilities be owned by a licensed doctor. When they couldn’t find a physician in the entire state of Kansas willing to take on ownership of South Wind, investors and abortion advocates seeking to re-open Tiller’s Wichita location tapped Oak Park’s Cheryl Chastine to put her name on the business and perform abortions there. Chastine agreed, and has signed herself onto the deadly legacy of Gosnell and Tiller.
WHEN: Wednesday, May 22, 2013, 11:30 a.m. (Central)
WHERE: In front of Total Wellness, Inc., 917 South Oak Park Avenue, Oak Park, IL 60304
WHO: Pro-Life Action League and concerned area citizens
WHAT: Prayer and protest to highlight the scandal of Oak Park family practice doctor Cheryl Chastine owning and performing abortions at South Wind Women’s Center (aka Wichita Medical Center), which has opened in Wichita, Kansas at the site of George Tiller’s notorious late-term abortion facility.
WHY: Chastain’s Oak Park patients deserve to know that she is heavily involved in abortion, as the owner of South Wind Women’s Center in Wichita—which cannot operate under Kansas state law without a doctor listed as official owner. Pro-life advocates hope to convince Chastain to pull out of South Wind, forcing the abortion center to close.
