For eight years, Burkhart had worked for abortion provider Dr. George Tiller in Wichita, Kan.That day, in Tiller's living room, she was keenly aware of the risks of continuing to work at an abortion clinic â Tiller's slaying in May 2009 was not the first time he had been attacked. In the 1980s, Tiller's clinic was bombed. In 1993, Tiller was shot in both arms but recovered.But Burkhart knew she had to keep going. She told Tiller's widow that day â "We have to re-establish services."Burkhart's organization, Trust Women, opened its first clinic, South Wind Women's Center, in Wichita in 2013.Now, Trust Women plans to open its second clinic, this time in July in southwest Oklahoma City. Physicians at the clinic will perform abortions up to 21.6 weeks, which they interpret as the legal limit, in addition to providing other reproductive health services.
