  Jennifer called and said that there is some smelly, toxic, substance on Tiller's driveway that made her sick.

I smelled it too while I was out changing the books at midnight, but I did not know that the smell was coming from the driveway. I thought that it might be coming from the creek. It was a strong smell, but it did not make me sick.

<<UPDATE>> Sunday Morning:

Jennifer called the police who called out a Hazmat team, who put "kitty litter" or some such material on the smelly substance.

Chemical Attack On Pro-lifers At Abortion Clinic Sickens Two

November 13th, 2008

Video tells of one woman who was hospitalized for four hours with vomiting, diarrhea, and swelling of the face and eyes.

Wichita, KS - Two pro-life volunteers participating in a round the clock prayer vigil were sickened last week, after being exposed to fumes from an oily substance that had been spilled across the driveway at George Tiller's late-term abortion clinic, Women's Health Care Services in Wichita.

One of the pro-lifers, Jennifer McCoy, was treated for four hours at a local hospital emergency room suffering from vomiting, diarrhea, and swelling of the face and eyes.

Another woman, Brandi Lozier, was with McCoy praying outside the abortion clinic in the early morning hours of Sunday, November 2, 2008, as part of the 40 Days For Life event. She suffered similar symptoms, but was not hospitalized.

After numerous tests, doctors told McCoy that her symptoms were the result of exposure to a foreign substance, and were not related to any viral or bacterial infection.

Hazmat was called to the abortion clinic and treated the area with a kitty-litter type of substance in order to absorb the noxious oily spill.

After being released from the hospital, McCoy filed a complaint with the Wichita Police Department, but, a week and a half later, arrest and prosecution of the unknown perpetrator seems unlikely.

"We suspect that this chemical attack may have been in retribution for Jennifer's help in documenting a botched abortion at Tiller's clinic a few weeks ago," said Operation Rescue spokesperson Cheryl Sullenger.

McCoy had interviewed Patient S. from her hospital bed after she nearly died from a botched abortion at Women's Health Care Services. McCoy also helped Patient S. get additional medical treatment for her abortion complications after it became obvious that neither Tiller nor the hospital where she had been taken by Tiller did not properly treat her.

This was not the first of such attacks on pro-lifers who minister outside Tiller abortion mill. In September, 2007, Tiller's security guard, John Rayburn, was photographed with a "stink bomb" that also sickened those on the scene. Prosecutors refused to file charges, and efforts to hold Tiller accountable in small claims court failed.

"We know whoever is responsible for endangering the health of these innocent women will only continue to be emboldened by a lack of prosecution," said Sullenger. "The only way to stop these cowardly attacks on pro-lifers is to catch the perpetrators and put them in jail."
