She is Cheryl Chastine, currently practicing at Total Wellness Inc., 917 S. Oak Park Ave. She is to “provide abortions at South Wind Womens Center, a proposed new abortion clinic located in George Tillers former abortion building on East Kellogg,” says Operation Rescue.
Highly suspicious, they say:
In what appears to be a bait and switch tactic, Chastine has filed to open a Professional Association under the name Wichita Medical Center at the same address as the proposed South Wind Womens Center, operated by former Tiller lobbyist Julie Burkhart, who has no medical license or training.
Kansas law requires that clinics that provide medical services be owned by licensed providers. (K.S.A. 17-2706)
It appears that there will be a public name for clinic and a secret name under which Chastine and perhaps others will operate, said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue and Pro-Life Nation. This raises legal questions that we are now exploring. The whole thing is less than above board, to say the least.
Chastine would commute to Wichita, continuing her non-abortion practice in Oak Park, according to Operation Rescue, an anti-abortion group.
