Reported by: Jennifer McCoy, Mary LaFrancis, and Diana D'Amato:

A sixteen year old girl from Andover, Kansas, was bought into Tiller's today by her mother, in a car with Butler County, Kansas tags at about 11:am.

The girl was two months pregnant, and the mother (grandmother) had scheduled an early-term abortion for her daughter. The teenaged daughter did not want the abortion, but her mother was forcing her into it.

(KCFL did not receive actionable evidence that the daughter was being forced to have this abortion, until after the unborn child was killed.)

In the early afternoon, in a separate vehicle, the father of the child, a young man named Dillon, also sixteen years old, came into Tiller's parking lot, driving a car with a personalized tag, (tag information is on file) in an attempt to save the life of his child.

Dillon came to the gate to get help and advice from the proLife counselors on-site. He told Jennifer that his parents were willing to raise the baby, or adopt the baby, or do whatever they could to help him and his girlfriend. Dillon said that he planned to marry the mother of his baby, as soon as they graduated from high school, and that his parents were supportive of this idea.

Dillon said that it was only his girlfriend's mother who wanted her to have the abortion, and that she had threatened to disown his girlfriend if she did not go through with the abortion.

Jennifer sent the boy into Tiller's to talk to the girl, to let her know, that all she had to do, was to say that she did not want to have the abortion, and at that point, KCFL could call the police, and that the Police would intervene on her behalf.

However, about thirty minutes after going into Tiller's building, both the mother and daughter, and Dillon came to the gate, leaving Tiller's parking lot in their cars. The young girl was crying, but the mother who was driving did not stop at the gate.

Dillon stopped at the gate and he was crying too. He said that he had gotten there just a few minutes too late. The baby was already dead when they finally let him talk to his girlfriend.

Dillon went from crying to sobbing as he talked to Mary LaFrancis at the gate. Dillon has asked KCFL to dedicate one of the Crosses on-site to his baby, as a memorial.

We will do so, when he gets back to us with the name of the baby.

The situation was upsetting to all the KCFL volunteers on-site all afternoon. There were tears and prayers all afternoon, because of the mean-spiritedness of this abortion.

Unfortunately, in the past KCFL volunteers have witnessed similar variations of this story, at least four times since starting the continuous presence on Mother's Day, 2004.. It is not an uncommon scenario, and most young girls simply do not know their rights in this regard.
