This WorldNetDaily report provides insight on what goes on it an abortion clinic (Read the whole thing):
The pro-life Operation Rescue shut down an abortion clinic in Wichita, Kan., by purchasing the building that housed it and turning the facility into new headquarters and a "memorial to the pre-born."
The clinic had operated under a variety of names since opening in 1983, aborting an estimated 50,000 babies. It drew attention in 1991, when a demonstration there led by Operation Rescue resulted in the arrests of 80 pastors.
Operation Rescue relocated its offices from Southern California to Wichita in 2002 and launched an effort to expose the abortion industry in Kansas. The group says its efforts have resulted in a 16 percent drop in abortions in the state.
Operation Rescue believes the decrease in abortions contributed to Central Women's Services financial difficulties.
"Any company that loses 16 percent of their business is going to be hurting," said Newman.
The group previously bought an empty lot next to the clinic where it placed a large billboard warning women of the dangers of abortion. Since the clinic's closure, the lot has been donated to a crisis pregnancy center called A Better Choice.
"God accomplishes his work through the obedient lives of his people. We believe that God brought us to Wichita to stop abortion, and that closing this mill and reclaiming it for Christ was part of his plan for us," said Newman. "We are humbled and thankful that he chose to use us in this way."
Operation Rescue staff member Cheryl Sullenger had an opportunity to see the abortion clinic in May before it closed, during a yard sale of office supplies and equipment. She described it as dingy, cramped and dirty.
After the abortion business moved out, Sullenger got a closer look.
"There was mold, and general filth," she said. "The carpets outside the abortion rooms were stained with blood, even though it was evident that some effort had been made to clean them. The ceiling nearby was broken. All of the walls were dirty and some were covered with cheap contact paper instead of being properly maintained."
Newman, Sullenger and Jeff White, who helped Operation Rescue obtain the property, discovered a small closet between the clinic's two "procedure" rooms. The closet had a sink surrounded by gallon bottles of bleach and drain cleaner.
"Under the sink was one of the biggest garbage disposals I have ever seen," said Newman. "The entire area had the stench of death. It was the sink where the suction machine bottles were washed. In fact, dried blood could be seen that had seeped out from the metal band that surrounded the sink top. There was a bucket marked 'biohazard' next to the sink.
"We were all sickened by the thought of all those thousands of innocent children whose blood had been washed down that sink. It was an experience I will never forget."
Norma McCorvey, the "Roe" of Roe v. Wade who once ran abortion clinics but now is a pro-life activist, confirmed it once was common practice to put aborted baby remains down such disposals.
"Oh, yes!" she told Newman in a phone call. "And you can't pour enough bleach down that drain to get rid of the smell."
UPDATE: Here is more from LifeNews:
Central Women's Services was suffering financial difficulties in recent months, and was behind on their rent at the building. They had scaled back doing abortions to just two days per month.
Sherman Zaremski of Kansas City drove three hours to Wichita to do abortions. In January, former Planned Parenthood employee Ronald Yeomans, who had had run-ins with the state health board, took over doing the abortions at Central.
Central came under fire in June 2005 when Operation Rescue discovered that the bodies of babies aborted there were "processed" and dumped at a landfill in the Kansas City area.
In July 2005, the pro-life group documented a botched abortion.
Most of the abortions done in the Wichita area are performed at Women's Health Care Services, the abortion business owned by infamous late-term abortion practitioner George Tiller.
Tiller currently faces a grand jury investigation in the January 2005 botched abortion death of a mentally disabled teenager. Wichita residents submitted several thousand petitions calling for the probe.
