"I Left My Dead Baby In The Toilet"
Former Patient of Abortionist Tells O'Reilly Factor
WASHINGTON, DC, December 13, 2006 (LifeSiteNews.com) - A former abortion patient of George R. Tiller, the infamous late-term abortionist from Wichita, Kansas, appeared on the Fox News show "The O'Reilly Factor" Tuesday evening and told details of her horrific late-abortion experience and the devastating emotional aftermath she experienced.
Identified only as "Kelly" the woman related how, at age 14, she was taken to Kansas by her parents from her home in Maryland, and given an abortion in the 20th week of pregnancy.
According to Kelly, she was forced to deliver her dead child into a toilet, an event that traumatized her and led to self-destructive behavior over the next ten years.
Kelly graphically described the late-term abortion process saying: "Well, it was a five-day process. And when I first went in, they have counseling that they offered. It's a group counseling with other women that are going through the same thing. And during the five days, they insert expandable whatever into the cervix to slowly dilate you through the five-day process.
"And about the third or fourth day Dr. Tiller came in and injected into the amniotic sack a saline solution, which suffocated and burned my baby to death. And on the last day they put you in a room with other women - there's, like, maybe six to 10 beds in a big room. And every woman is lying there. And they kind of go down the line and whatever's ready, you know, they decide that you're dilated enough and they put you in wheelchair and wheel you out to another room.
"And in this other room there's basically a toilet, and they told me to sit on the toilet, lean on the nurse, and push, push my baby into a toilet. And after that they wheel you into another room, to remove all the, you know, afterbirth."
Operation Rescue President Troy Newman, who has fought to expose the atrocities committed by Tiller commented, "The pain of Kelly's abortion was still evident in her face. Even O'Reilly seemed deeply affected by her story." Newman added, "Unfortunately, her tragedy is being repeated every week at George Tiller's abortion mill on other vulnerable girls. There are literally thousands of Kelly's out there, each with her own horrific story to tell."
Tiller is currently under criminal investigation by the Kansas Attorney General's office for illegal late-term abortions and the concealment of child rape. He narrowly escaped indictments by a grand jury earlier this year in the abortion death of 19-year old Christin Gilbert.
"Operation Rescue is calling all men and women of conscience to come to Wichita January 19-22 for an event aptly named 'A Cry For Justice,'" said Newman. "We will continue to focus the eyes of the nation on Tiller's heinous killing practice and demand he be brought to justice. We are drawing a line in the sand. The killing stops here."

TRANSCRIPT FROM INTERVIEW:
Dr. Tiller Abortion Patient Speaks Out!
Wednesday, December 13, 2006
This is a partial transcript from "The O'Reilly Factor," December 12, 2006, that has been edited for clarity.
BILL O'REILLY, HOST: "Factor follow-up" segment tonight, authorities in Kansas still investigating the late-term abortionist , to see if he has violated state law about reporting the rapes of underaged girls.
Tiller will abort babies at any time up until birth, sometimes citing the depression of the mother as a medical reason.
Joining us now from Washington is Kelly. Got pregnant at age 13 in Maryland and had her fetus aborted by Tiller. OK, so you were 20 weeks pregnant when you brought the situation to your parents' attention, I understand. In the state of Maryland, you could not have an abortion that late, but your father and mother, I guess, decided to take you to Kansas, where Tiller advertises on the Net. Everybody knows who he is. He'll abort babies at any time. So your parents take you there. You go into the clinic. Pick it up from there.
KELLY, FORMER DR. TILLER PATIENT: Well, it was a five-day process. And when I first went in, they have counseling that they offered. It's a group counseling with other women that are going through the same thing. And during the five days, they insert expandable whatever into the cervix to slowly dilate you through the five-day process.
And about the third or fourth day Dr. Tiller came in and injected into the amniotic sack a saline solution, which suffocated and burned my baby to death. And on the last day they put you in a room with other women — there's, like, maybe six to 10 beds in a big room. And every woman is lying there. And they kind of go down the line and whatever's ready, you know, they decide that you're dilated enough and they put you in wheelchair and wheel you out to another room.
And in this other room there's basically a toilet, and they told me to sit on the toilet, lean on the nurse, and push, push my baby into a toilet. And after that they wheel you into another room, to remove all the, you know, afterbirth.
And really, that's the only two times I ever saw the doctor was when he injected the saline solution and when he finished the process by removing the afterbirth. And this is all very graphic, and I think that that's very important that people know that that's going on in our country.
O'REILLY: Sure. Absolutely. And I applaud your courage. Now, did the doctor say anything to you?
KELLY: No. I mean — you know, what I remember today is that no one ever said anything to me about what was going to happen during that five-day process or what was going to happen when I left that clinic or 10 years down the road what was going to happen.
O'REILLY: All right. But Tiller himself, when he injected the fetus with the killing agent and then when he took the afterbirth, he never said anything to you at all?
KELLY: "This will all be over soon."
O'REILLY: "This will all be over soon." What happened to the body?
KELLY: I have no idea. I left my baby dead in the toilet.
O'REILLY: All right. Then when you got out from after the process was over, you went where?
KELLY: After he had finished the process that day?
KELLY: To a hotel room and then back home.
O'REILLY: So you just left the clinic right after you discharged the baby, the dead baby, and you put your coat on and went out to a hotel.
O'REILLY: How do you feel about that, the whole thing?
KELLY: I'm disgusted. I'm disgusted that women are told that they have a choice, yet no one tells us what that choice is or what that choice is going to do to us or to the baby, for that matter. I mean, very few people, I think, know that this is what happens. It's not just an easy solution. It just — it's not an answer to any problem. It just creates other problems.
O'REILLY: What happened to you after the abortion?
KELLY: Many things. I mean, I was traumatized, so I had lots of symptoms of posttraumatic stress disorder. I had very low self-esteem. I was promiscuous, I used drugs, I had eating disorders. Lots of horrible things.
And when I think that, you know, what would the worst-case scenario be, that I have my child? That would have been better than having gone through all of the affects of the depression, suicidal thoughts, all of that that happened afterwards.
O'REILLY: Now Kelly, don't beat yourself up. You were 13 years old, you were 14 when the abortion happened, you know. You know better now. You're courageous. You came on. You told the nation what's happening in Kansas. Very few people will do that. And you know, we appreciate your courage very much. Thank you.
