The Philadelphia Women's Center gave away free abortions on Tuesday as a means of "honoring" slain late-term abortionist George Tiller. The abortion clinic told the media that an unspecified number of abortions were done free of charge. but there are no further plans to offer additional free abortions.
One worker confirmed that there had not been free abortion giveaways in the past and under normal circumstances, abortions would not be au gratis at the clinic. But they were today, in honor of Dr. Tiller’s “memory and legacy.”
"There seems to be no comprehension of the value of human life with these people. Killing babies for free to honor someone who was murdered can only be described as sick," said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman.
"There is no such thing as a 'free abortion,'" said Newman. "It costs the life of an innocent baby and puts the woman at risk for increased problems in her life. The loss of each innocent life diminishes us all."
An organization called The Elliot Institute News has released some revealing studies that show women who have received abortions are more at risk for problems such as suicide, drug and alcohol abuse, and mental illness.
Newman concluded, "If the people running that abortion clinic really wanted to help women, they would follow the Tiller family's example and close their clinic for good."
