Judge James Beasley heard oral arguments Wednesday in the case that accuses anti-abortionists and organizations of stalking the clinic and the clinics owner. Julie Burkhart opened the clinic in April in the same location where George Tiller’s clinic operated.
Dr. Tiller offered late-term abortions in Wichita and rapidly became the target of protests and violence. His clinic was firebombed and he was shot in the arms. In 2009, Tiller was shot and killed in his church by an anti-abortion activist.
