thanks, you've done enough already

From the Wichita Eagle:

Abortion opponents plan to return to Wichita this weekend to conduct a prayer vigil at the now-closed clinic where slain doctor George Tiller performed late-term abortions.

The prayer vigil and what is being called a memorial service at the former Women’s Health Care Services, 5107 E. Kellogg, will be held at noon on Saturday during a “prayer walk” extending the length of Kellogg through Wichita, organizers said in a prepared statement.

“As members of the pro-life and faith community, we are coming together for a time of prayer and remembrance,” said the Rev. Patrick Mahoney, director of the Christian Defense Coalition, which is based in Washington, D.C. “We will be praying for the Tiller family as well as asking God to bring healing to the city of Wichita.

“We will be asking God to end the violence both inside and outside of abortion clinics. Specifically, we will be praying that Wichita respects human rights and social justice and that no abortions would ever be performed in the city again.”

Tiller was shot to death on the morning of May 31 as he served as an usher in the foyer of Reformation Lutheran Church. Scott Roeder, 51, has been charged with first-degree murder and aggravated assault, and his preliminary hearing is now set for June 30.

The event opens with a prayer vigil Friday night at Living Word Outreach, 3033 S. Hillside.

They will cap off the event by going to the cemetery where Dr. Tiller has been interred and taking a group dump on his grave.
