If Jesus can redeem a building, He can redeem lives and heal hurting hearts,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “It is also an encouragement to the pro-life movement that, through God’s grace, we are winning the abortion battle one closed mill at a time.”The public and media will be invited to tour the facility in the next week at a time to be announced.
“We want the public to see and understand the filthy, decrepit conditions that existed at this abortion mill before renovations begin,” said Newman."

We pray that the memorial we establish there will help begin the healing process,” said Newman. “We have faith that George Tiller’s abortion mill is the next to close, and finally bring an end to abortion’s tragedy in Wichita.”
