Anti-abortion activists will be in Wichita for the next week for a series of demonstrations they’re calling the Summer of Justice. Organizers say they’re peaceful and have been unfairly criticized in the past.

Operation Save America, an anti-abortion group headquartered in Waco, Texas, has partnered with local and state organizations for a week of protests starting today.

Groups Renew Effort To Rezone Land Near Abortion Provider

Aug 13, 2013

Abortion opponents are redoubling their efforts in Wichita to use zoning laws to drive out a clinic that provides abortions.

Representatives from four groups will ask Wichita's City Council Tuesday to rezone the neighborhood around the South Wind Women's Center to ban abortions.

Speakers from Kansans for Life, Operation Rescue, World of Life Church and the Kansas Coalition for Life are on the council agenda.

The city planning commission rejected a similar effort to rezone the building earlier this year.
