WICHITA, Kan. - Pro-life supporters have moved their planned memorial service away from the now-shuttered Kansas clinic run by slain abortion doctor George Tiller.

Operation Rescue planned an afternoon gathering and prayer vigil Saturday in Wichita at Tiller's former clinic, one of the few in the nation where third-trimester abortions were still performed.

Tiller was gunned down May 31 at his church. Murder and aggravated assault charges were filed against Scott Roeder.

The National Organization for Women said Friday that dozens of abortion supporters planned to confront Operation Rescue at the clinic.

On Saturday, pro-lifers said that instead of holding their service at the clinic they would place 1,500 flowers at a local hospital and a location near their own national headquarters.
