WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - Abortion foes are resurrecting their efforts to use zoning laws to drive out a Wichita abortion clinic.
Representatives from four groups planned to ask the Wichita City Council on Tuesday to rezone the neighborhood around the South Wind Women's Center to prohibit abortions. A similar effort earlier this year to rezone the building itself was rejected by the planning commission.
Wichita-based nonprofit Trust Women Foundation Inc. opened a clinic earlier this year in the building owned by slain abortion provider George Tiller. The property had been used for medical purposes since 1937 and was zoned to allow a medical office when the abortion rights group bought it.
Representatives from Kansans for Life, Operation Rescue, World of Life Church and the Kansas Coalition for Life are on the council agenda Tuesday.
