New Oklahoma Abortion Clinic Owner Thinks She Can Kill 1,500 Babies a Year, Maybe Even 3,000

run by Kansas abortion advocate Julie Burkhart.
The new abortion facility in Oklahoma City has big plans for its business in the next few years.

Owner Julie Burkhart told ABC News that they hope to perform 1,500 abortions during the first year of business and increase to 3,000 abortions a year within the next few years. Her new Oklahoma abortion facility, Trust Women South Wind Women’s Center, began seeing patients last week. It is the first abortion business to open in the city in 40 years.

“If you look at this part of the country, there is a lack of access to reproductive health care, and frankly a lack of access to health care across the board,” Burkhart said. “It’s hard for women who want to give birth to find Ob/Gyns to help them deliver their babies.”

While the facility offers OB-GYN care, birth control and adoption information, its main focus appears to be abortions. If Burkhart meets her abortion goals, her new facility would increase Oklahoma’s abortion rate by more than 50 percent. On average, about 5,600 unborn babies have lost their lives to abortion every year in Oklahoma during the past decade, though the numbers have been decreasing in the past few years, according to state Department of Health reports.

Burkhart’s abortion business is offering later-term abortions, too. Oklahoma News 9 reports the facility will do abortions up to 21.6 weeks, a point very near viability when strong medical evidence indicates that unborn babies feel excruciating pain.

Local pro-lifers, including pregnancy centers, are preparing to increase their outreach in response to Burkhart’s new abortion business. Church-goers already have held several peaceful protests outside the facility. Some neighbors also are upset about the abortion business being so close to them because they believe it could lower their property values.

Two years ago, Oklahoma City’s last abortion facility closed, making it “the largest metro in America to have zero abortion facilities,” the local news channel noted. Last week, that changed when South Wind opened.

Burkhart and her abortion facilities have poor reputations for patient care and safety. She also runs an abortion facility in Kansas. Cheryl Sullenger, a leader of Operation Rescue, described Burkhart this way:

Burkhart is a militant pro-abortion activist who once worked for the notorious late-term abortionist George Tiller as head of his now-defunct political action committee. During that time, Burkhart was paid by Tiller to lobby against common sense laws that provided late-term abortion limits, as well as safety standards and accountability for abortion clinics. She also opposed efforts by [Kansas] Attorney General Phil Kline to investigate the non-reporting of child sex abuse at Kansas abortion clinics. . . . . Read More
