Jury Selection Continues for KS Abortion Doc

Ad Feedback

Jury selection continues today in the trial of Kansas abortion doctor George Tiller who is charged with 19 misdemeanors, alleging he failed to obtain a second opinion from an independent doctor for late-term abortions.

"Attorneys on both sides are trying to get jurors to understand that this is about business," Reporter Cayle Thompson of KAKE-TV who has been covering the trial in Wichita, Kan., told CBN News.

Thompson said the jury should focus on the facts.

"This is not about whether abortion is right or wrong and they want them to put their feelings aside on the matter. They're hoping that they can get the jury to look simply at the facts of the case--whether or not Dr. Tiller was financially linked to this doctor from whom he received a second opinion in his late-term abortions," he added.

The trial is generating national interest from both sides of the abortion debate and opening arguments are expected Monday.
